This is a really really short trail. If your here at the beach, be sure to walk it and read about the history. But don’t make a trip just for the trails.

Great trail must go

These trails are great mountain bike trails. These trails have really been built up in a short amount of time and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store.

This park is the best kept secret in Altamonte Springs. I lived about a mile from the park & frequented numerous times during a 10-year period. The park is free, however parking is on the other side of Maitland Blvd. & there's a tram system, similar to a theme park, for transporting visitors. The park rangers are extremely friendly & helpful, however bike cycles are prohibited past the playground & main gathering area. It's common to see wildlife including exotic birds and alligators. The boardwalks are shaded & provide a taste of the Florida wilderness. There's also a gazebo located on the lake.

Nice little piece of nature to escape to. Saw some wildlife which and has good views of the water. Def recommend to wear some bug spray.

What a beautiful spring! As of June 2020, the only thing that is closed is the blue hole. This trail is open as is the spring for swimming. We intended to do the full loop and then swim, but once the kids saw the head spring we just stopped to swim. Be sure to bring your swimsuits, taking a dip in the crystal clear spring is a must. We are a full time RV family of 8 (FindYourCrazy.org) and today we had 5 of our kids with us (8,9,11 and two other 11 year olds with special needs). We left the dogs at home as you can’t take them to the spring. Everyone did great. We had life-vests for the weaker swimmers as the pool gets about 8ft deep in the middle, but there is shallow wading around the edges. It rained right before we arrived, so there was no crowd, but I can imagine on a hot summer day this could get crowded really fast.

Gets better as you go. Saw a massive heron and 1000 blue crabs

I liked the nature on this trail it was very calming but I ran into a man who made me feel very uncomfortable, I would not go on this trail alone

Lots of fun

The trail is open! Also, the entire trail is dry as of today so no need to bring wading gear. Recommend not following my plan of hiking this at noon in 95 degree heat as there is not much shade on the trail. Beautiful ecosystem with lots of snail kite shells along the way.

Please stop posting that the park is open. It’s not. So bummed.

First time back here since covid. Very overgrown, understandably I guess. Nervous about snakes when I can’t see my feet through the brush.

One of my favorite trails in Gainesville. Some elevation, winding, a few ponds, and lots of peace and quiet.

Great, quick hike on a very pretty trail. There’s a stream and a bridge. It doesn’t take long to lose the road noise.

Great little trail! Did this several days ago, so the trail is definitely open now, even though the app says it is closed. A bit confusing at the start as it wound through a more wooded section, but then it opened into this stunning area with tall pines and beautiful green undergrowth. Highly recommend this as an introduction to this state park.

Love this place! I have a small dog and have been looking for trails to get him used to hiking. The various trails give different options of skill level and terrain for him to work with. Best of all they only ask for a small donation making it affordable to go a couple of times a week.

Nice, easy trail. About half is a boardwalk which can be rather slippery when it's wet. The swinging bridge is short but nice. Overall, good for a quick walk in the woods. The trail is open from the Bear Lake side but Krul Lake is still closed..

Don’t waste your time.

Decent leisurely sand trail for walking. Easy for all skill levels; some small hills. Maintained but natural. Scrub Jays are beautiful. I’ve seen bunnies and other pretty birds also.

Good ride

BRING BUG SPRAY!!!! A million mosquitos. Trail is a little overgrown but not bad. Very nice easy hike in the wilderness. Adequate shade for dogs and very pretty scenery.

At least 50% of the Trail was in the sun and a big chunk was on the paved Upper Tampa Trail. The actual trail was well maintained but the track on AllTrail is way off and you can’t follow trail signs to match the AllTrail path. We did see the backend of a deer at one point.

Really enjoyable hike, most of it shaded, with pretty overlook areas of the river just off the main trail. Saw some wildlife, not as much as I would have hoped, but the hike was pleasant and fortunately not too crowded on a Wednesday morning. I imagine this would be much more crowded on the weekends due to its proximity to Oveido.

Very secluded trail. It’s little bit sandy. What I like most of the trail is the elevation at the end.
