    Great Trail to Explore

    Beautiful typical Florida park as there are plenty of pine trees with oak trees here and there as you walk the trail. Depending on the time of day you will see wildlife. I went in the hot afternoon so I mostly saw tourists and turtles. After a while on the trail you'll come to the wilderness area which is absolutely beautiful and full with old oak trees, magnolias, and when you reach the Little Econ you'll see Cypress trees and Cypress knees.

    Great location

    this is one of my favorite trails to go, it’s never crowded and the trails are beautiful. It is cut in half but an open area with power lines, if you follow them all the way down to the left you get to the river. We have witnessed cool wildlife as well like otters and tortoises.

    Lots of shade

    Typically very few people, but have seen horses. About .4 mike of shade... then a field- watch for chiggers and Burs, then 3+ more miles of loop trail in woods.
