Starting at the Jones trailhead allows a similar double loop with a touch more river and way less time on the rails to trails Flagler. It is entirely bicycle friendly which takes a bit of hiker solace out and adds in a big dose of twisty-turny especially on two bridges. The ditch is a must see and do especially for bikers but I find the river panoramas a more interesting hike.

My first time in Oviedo, I was looking for an end of day walk when I happened upon this scenic macadam trail. It was quiet with occasional bikers, and joggers, and dog-walkers doing their thing, while I strolled along for a couple of hours. The pathway was exceptionally well—maintained, with lots of greenery.

It's still closed from the hurricane as of 1/28/18

Did this trail today. Trail itself was great. Moderate traffic, well kept. Bridge was closed for repair so didn't get to do the whole loop. Draw backs were no maps, facilities or information at trail head parking. I won't do it again for the biggest reason of absolutely no facilities not even a porta John.

Hiked it with all of my children at many different ages! Great trail for everyone. The payoff of the lookout tower makes it a great reward for the kids hard work walking!

When on a 10 miles hike through an area of the park. Some sections were close due to flood damaged. Bring drinking water since none is available. I went with a group of scouts from Troop 43 in Tavares who are working in their Hiking Merit Badge. Watch for bicyclists since you’re sharing the trails with them. That section of the park has three parking areas but the only on for free is the hikers one. The courtesy parking fee is $2.00 to be use in the maintenance of the trails. There is a coed bathroom in the bicycle parking area.

Nice trail. Saw 2 snakes, one of which was a nice sized rattlesnake. Plenty of bear and animal tracks. One of the bridges was down but my boyfriend and I had a great time finding our way across. There are a few dead ends if you begin to venture off into alternate paths but all in all if was a nice simple enough trail.

Recently walked a section of the Flagler Trail while completing the Kolokee Loop Trail for the Florida Trailwalker Program. the section I hiked was wide enough to drive a vehicle on, clear of debris, and easy walking.

Didn't make it all the way to the landing strip as much of the trail adjacent to the river was flooded from Hurricane Irma, but definitely going back when the water level recedes a bit. Very easy to navigate, and saw some deer at night while heading back.

nice place too go with the family take the kids they will love it. if you like hiking, birdwatching or scenic walking ya'll love it. there's lots of wildlife too see.

The Boardwalk is a lovely walk-through that opens up into a scenic loop with a couple varied pathways. The contrast between the forested area and the scenic trail is stark. Rattlesnakes are identified to roam the area so my senses were a little more heightened that I would have liked. Overall, it was a decent morning walk.

Excellent trail to casually bike on.

Awesome! Lots of little off trails. Technical and challenging! Quite a few nice surprises mixed in!

Pretty straightforward. The end had a nice little beach with a cute bridge, just wish the trail had a few more sights along the way.

Great start through moderate vegetation, crossing several wooden bridges. Little scenic enjoyment though once you reach the clearing and follow the loop trail. Nothing to be proud of, but not a waste of time either. 3/5

This is a wonderful trail that stretches along a nice residential area. Everyone on the trail is so nice and it is always clean. There are many locations on the trail that make it exciting. It is great for all activities. On a bike you can do the whole trail and check downtown Oviedo. If you walk or run, it is shaded and has many great views of the forest in Florida. I recommend this trail to anyone if they ever get the chance.

Beautiful area! Boardwalk ends into a lightly trafficked trail. Ran across a pigmy rattler and called it a day.

The trail was very shady and kept clean. At the beginning trail is very narrow, but after about quarter it widen. Trail is kind of boring if you are just walking since it is litally a straight line, might be better riding a mountain bike.

Natural Florida in all its trail glory. Flat, wooded rails-to-trails foot/bike/equestrian path. Trail has a few small roots & sandy sections. An easy out-&-back to the Econ River.

uneventful beginning you have to take a trail thats between two raods just to even make to the loop of an actual trail. And its a 50 minute walk of hearing cars going by. again uneventful.

Very nice trail. Shaded and cool this morning I found the 7.5 mole loop very enjoyable. I saw deer and hogs on the trail.

I gave this trail only 3 stars because most of the trail was flooded out(August rain) and I wasn't able to ride most of the trails. I can't wait to go back when it dries up.
Ok the beginning of the trail is flat/sandy and windy, I didn't see many climbs and no jumps... I will give a full review next time I go back. FYI this park has 3 entrances one for horse back riding, another for trail walkers and another for bikes. Good luck finding the right one. lol

This trail was really fun and challenging! Perfect for off road biking. Part of the trail was under water so we explored a different route. I loved splashing thru the mud puddles on my bike. I can't wait to go back! We ended up riding about 10 miles
