I really like this trail, but parts of it will be under water and impassable after lots of rain. Also, if you bring your dog here, make sure that you check them very well for ticks! My dog always has a few after coming here

Great park. Did the loop had a lot of shade which made it a comfortable walk at the beginning of September in Florida. Get there early or late afternoon because there isn’t much way for a breeze to get through foliage. There are parts of the trail that were muddy but only one part that we did not go through because there wasn’t a way around the wet mud. This trail was easy enough for me to tackle my third week of recovery from neck fusion surgery. Easy going not elevation changes.

great trail system that runs through grassy fields and Florida woodlands

I love this trail , I lived beside this trail for almost 15 years .

nice relaxing trail that is very easy to navigate. you will see animals and it runs right by the river.

There are many trails here through oak hammocks and pine flatwoods. There are many pretty trails here, and there is very little shade on most of them. Most of the shady sections are along the Florida Trail (which cuts through the middle of the park) and the western boundary. This is a very nice park for birds and wildlife, and it's one of the best places to get onto the Florida Trail.

Pretty nice views. Not shaded much. Saw a lot of tortoises but the grasshoppers were insane

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.

This was a decent trail. Don’t get me wrong the trail itself is great. There are some long shaded sections and some nice scenery along the way. The wildlife, however, is pretty lacking. I hiked the entire trail in the morning and saw just a turkey, a hawk and a bunch of lizards. It was a bit underwhelming but still a good day. It’s worth doing if you’ve never done it before but that’s about it.

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.

Enjoyed the walk

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

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

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.

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!

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.

A decent Trail to hike, Well marked. Unfortantly, I did not get to see much wildlife which is why i love to hike, but I did get to see a large gopher tortoise, an eastern fence lizard and foot tracks from a black bear. I will check this trail out again in the future.

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.

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.

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.
