Nice hike, mostly flat, and sandy. Saw birds but but liked the grave site, sink hole, and you don't run across a cattle dip for the 1900's just everyday. Did track home some sand spurs on the bottom my shoes. Recommend long nylon pants to cut down on the sand spur issue - worked for me.

Much of the year, this trail can be called the Sandspur Trail, because they cover the area. Not a challenging hike; the area is flat, but nice and quiet. Some of the area was recovering from fire that occurred during the summer drought. I didn't see much wildlife during the hike, but I was there to enjoy the hike, and I did. On the trail, there are a couple of junctions with the florida Trail. I only had about three hours, so I didn't follow the Florida trail very far. Overall, a great hike.
