Fir over 15 years, I’ve enjoyed hiking and riding this trail network. By far, it’s one of the best small trails in the region.
However, there is a tree near Rybolt’s Reserve which is leaning on a powerline and has been since hurricane Irma. This is definitely a safety issue as it crosses a portion of the trail.

I have very mixed feelings of this trail. The majority of it was closed off due to the boardwalk being under construction, so I only got to hike about a quarter mile. HOWEVER, in that short time span I saw both an armadillo and an otter so it was definitely worth the visit. I’ll go back in about two weeks to try and do the whole thing. Definitely worth looking into.

If you like the adventure, this is the right place to explore the trails, is quiet and you can see lots of turtles in the rute. Better to go when is good weather because there isn't shelter. No restrooms. Free parking. Pet friendly. Great for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding.

not clearly marked and over grown since irma. access is from the riverside park across the open field.

Pretty walk. But very short and trail entrance is not clearly marked

Long and lots of turns ! Watch the map!

love the river part

Great walk with family.. beautiful river views!

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.

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.

Great trail for all level of riders, with some great scenery and wildlife. For a 360 video of a portion of the trail, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDoUv27_BVg&feature=share

A beautiful trail to Hike. Parts of the trail were flooded after Hurricane Irma, but was still passable. We went during the middle of the day so we did not get to see much wildlife, but we were lucky enough to see a Red Tail Hawk, a 5' Alligator and a Pigmy Rattlesnake on the trail. Although there is limited parking at the Trail Head, the Trail seemed to be heavily traveled by other hikers. This trail is relatively close to my house so I will be going back to hike it again.

The trails were fairly well marked, and the route featured a lot of shade and beautiful oak trees. My only suggestion is not to hike this trail during rainy season, as we were not able to complete the loop due to the river covering the trail. We had to turn around and go back the way we had come.

Perfect trail for a quick evening hike. I don't think I'd enjoy this trail in the middle of the day as it wasn't shaded most of the time.

A great trail for beginners. I take my friends who have never been hiking before here.

You frequently see other people here, particularly UCF students.

The waterfall is small, maybe 5ft? Most people are expecting something huge, but it's really not.

A nice and easy flat hike with the dog. A little narrow at points but a great way to spend an hour in the afternoon to get outdoors and clear your head.

Easy, flat, beautiful FL woods; less than 2mi away from UCF campus. Watch for trail markers-- could easily miss a turn. Mostly tree-canopied footpath.

80deg-F warm afternoon in December. Saw two bald eagles & an alligator. Great trail run.

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.

Fairly well marked lots of great river camera shots all in all an enjoyable experience

Very pretty and scenic, great for pics in the evening time. Walking, jogging, and biking are all things you can do on this trail. It's an easy trail to walk with only 5 miles around. Not a lot of animals but very tranquility and peaceful.

Beautiful sample of Florida nature. There are ample trails that network through this system and pretty much all of the connect. Just make sure that if you cross the river you can find a way back cuz there are only a few bridges.
