Welp. This trail has potential.. however I found myself wading through over 1ft deep water several times. After awhile I decided to turn around solely out of fear of getting bit by an alligator. 2 stars.

Very flooded this time of year. Just have to except that your feet are going to be wet. Almost guaranteed to have the place to yourself however!! Great upside!!

Typical FL trail in July - buggy, hot and wet but a great ride. Will be back.

Straight-forward typical Florida hike through a combination of forest and scrub brush. The trail runs from a trailhead off state road 54 all the way to another entrance near the airport in Zephyrhills. There are a lot of very sandy parts of the trail the closer you get to Z-Hills. The day I took this hike I didn't see another soul out there and it was a round trip of a little over nine miles. It looks like a popular spot for horseback riding and there are several equestrian trails that crisscross the area.

This is for the "Yellow Trail" at Colt Creek State Park. You can either start from one of the two Flatwoods Trail Heads in the middle of the park or drive on the park road a little further south and park. If you start from the middle of the park though it will take you either 3 or about 3.25 miles just to reach the start of the Yellow Trail. The actual Yellow Trail is really about a 5-mile loop, even though the trail map says its 7 miles. The is by far the least traveled part of Colt Creek State Park and I rarely see anyone else out here. It's also typically where I see the most wildlife. It's very well marked, and there are a couple of spots where you can shorten it if you need to. The recording I did covers the entire Yellow Trail by starting from the Flatwoods Trailhead in the middle of the park, and I added a little more distance by varying the route on the way back.

Typical Florida Trail. Lots of walking in tall pine trees with palmetto fronds all around. Trail is mostly well-maintained. A couple places you have to walk around mud and in one place I had to walk through water.
