Great hike along the river, plenty of shade along most of the trail and lots of great places to stop and eat lunch. Definitely bring bug spray though, there were quite a lot of mosquitoes even in the morning when the temperature was lower. We took this trail for IDIDAHIKE 2017 with the Florida Trail Association and finished with a trail through White Springs Tract back to the Stephen Foster Tourist Center for about an 8.5 mile hike.
