“A 5-mile loop through open grassy forests of longleaf pine in the park's southeast preserve.”— Ryan Spr
Passing the Alligator Link, the trail continues east a mile until the fork is reached, which then turns north following the south prong of Sebastian Creek. There is a footbridge and two links (Marsh and Coyote) that lead to the west side of the loop. The creek is never in view but can be reached as the loop makes a turn east. There, the Mullet Camp Trail will lead you a half-mile east to a primitive campsite.
After making the left turn of the trail, continue for a half-mile before making the turn south. At this point, there is access to a parking area at the north end of the WW Ranch Road. Taking the loop south leads back to the fork, passing marshland/swamps, so the trail may be a bit wet during the wet months of the year. Finally, at the fork, the trail leads west back the trailhead.
