The trail is rife with white sugar sand. Portions may be swampy during the rainy Florida months.
This well-marked trail, which is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, is a mix of doubletrack and dirt road.
A few miles in, Mullet Camp Trail leads east to a primitive, hike-in, tent camp site just off the Sebastian River. The trail conditions deteriorate a bit about six miles in and do not improve much until nearing the end of the loop.
