Trail shared by Ryan Spr

A red blazed trail — 0.8 mile one way —that eventually leads to a yellow blazed loop trail.

Runner Notes

Quite sandy and plenty of roots.

Description

Despite the "sandhills" name, the trail is relatively flat but is quite sandy.

Be careful on the trail to watch for the red signs and yellow signs denoting the official trails. It's easy to get sidetracked on what looks like the official trail but isn't. You see the next blaze on the powerline, and the trail is forced out to the powerline road to cross a culvert at the half-mile mark.

Continue up under the powerline, watching for the triangle blaze to lead you back into the woods on the right before the next set of power poles. The trail curves to the right to head into the sandhills. Soon after this transition, a double blaze points you left off the forest road and onto a narrow footpath.

The trail goes close to the Econlockhatchee River, but it's never within sight, though it can be reached by other paths in the conservation area.

Flora & Fauna

Sand pine (Pinus clausa) and Turkey oak (Quercus laevis)
