Description

This trail goes through varied terrain from sandy uplands to wet lowlands. The trail is well maintained, and because it is a single path, you get the feeling of being close to nature. The trail is marked by white blazes.

The northern leg of the trail is generally higher and drier, but there are still a couple of spots that can be wet. There is a primitive campground with one site off the north leg of the trail.

The southern leg of the trail goes along the north bank of the Little Manatee River for stretches. The trail crosses Cypress Creek twice. Cypress Creek is a tributary. There are bridges over the streams and some wet areas, but other areas can be under water or quite muddy when there is much rain.
