One of the best trails I’ve found and I hike around Sanford also.

Flat dog walking trail. I can't see why this would be rated moderate. some of it is in a parking lot. It's Florida so it can be hot and buggy. It's only 1 mile with an option to cut it in half to a half mile.

Very beautiful and relaxing.There were bathrooms among the trails and the view from the tower and the bridges put the icing on the cake.

Seemed short, but decent walk for my dogs. Also enjoyed taking some photos down by the train tracks

Great trail to run. Nice views. Saw a deer and just a nice run.

This is a very nice trail that was washed out in a few places but overall not in bad shape. It is hard to follow at times but this app was a big help. We are going to use it a lot to train for the Appy Trail in the fall. Break in shoes and get packs adjusted kind of stuff. Wear long pants and long sleeves and put on the bug spray so you can really enjoy it.

Trail was flooded so I went along the paved areas. In 5 minutes I saw a baby gator, a huge owl and a wild sow with 3 piglets! What everyone says about wildlife in the other reviews is true, but I feel bad giving 5 stars to a flooded trail. Definitely going back on my next business trip to the area, so I hope I have a more complete review to write at that time. Don't hike often in Florida, but this seems a candidate for the elevated boardwalks I've seen on other trails.

Nice trail. It was marked really well. There was only a couple places where you might get your feet wet but a really good trail to hit between thunderstorms

We took our kids here last week for a nature walk and were pleased to find a good combination of wilderness and easy walking trails! The trailhead is a good walk away from the parking area. Walk down the road to the sidewalk and then go a ways down the sidewalk. You will be able to see a boardwalk through the brush before you can see the trail entrance. There is a map on the bulletin board and I would suggest snapping a photo of it before you go! We missed the blue blaze in the beginning and ended up going on the wrong trail, but all in all it was a fun hike!

Pretty area; easy access. We rode our bikes and had a nice time. The only draw back was the trash left behind from years of use.by people who don’t appreciate conservation.

Nice trail; properly marked. The south east side of the yellow trail was under water, so be prepared to get wet if you’re not wearing the right gear..

What trail?

Love love loved it! Met the men who built and still improving on this beautiful area. Nature at its finest. My sister and I hiked the bike trail, 6 miles! Will be going again soon!

Went during August... lots of spiders!!

pretty short but the views were nice

to short but if ur looking to work out it was a nice outdoor "gym"

certainly gonna go back to hit the bike trails it leads too

Very heavily trafficked on weekend. Not a bad trail though, good scenery.

Have been twice now and it is great. Have been doing the entire loop and some off trails to total 6 miles. Great place to stay in shape. Going to try for 3 days./week

Trail was very good. The yellow trail was well maintained in many parts. But the white trail was under water in most parts. Highly recommend not doing the trail after a large amounts of rain. Otherwise is it good trail, very beautiful.

My husband and I visited this park Aug 2018. Although we didn’t see any wildlife, except two turtles, it was a peaceful and enjoyable nature walk. Mostly all shaded. All wooded boardwalk. Note that no pets allowed and no jogging on boardwalk.

Yes it is,Hot, but this will always be my local favorite. The new trail markings are really very bright. The trail itself is pretty well worn and what you might not necessarily need the tree marking but it’s nice to look ahead and see your bright orange marking on the tree.In the very few muddy Areas, you can see tracks. Raccoon I believe. Heard but didn’t see a woodpecker. I might’ve heard a deer crashing through the woods but I’m really not sure what it was. It’s bigger than an armadillo. Saw a large moth not a lunar moth. Bugs weren’t bad.

Yeah, never doing this again. Maybe if some local hoodlums would stop writing obscene things on the walkway it would be maybe 3 stars.

Poorly kept up trash everywhere ☹️
