Description

The Main Hiking Trail is a long loop that skirts around the perimeter of Wekiwa Springs State Park. The trail can be accessed from the parking lot located near the Sand Lake Loop. Look for the white blazes.

From here, if running in a counterclockwise direction, the trail heads north along a very straight section of path before starting to wind and loop to the west. This section near Rock Springs Run can get very wet in the summer. Use the inner loop trails to avoid the water.

The trail then turns south, running concurrent with the Equestrian Trail for a short distance and then crossing it. The west and south trails are beautiful rolling hills through open forest.

The loop eventually comes to the Volksmarch Trail, and these two trails run concurrent for a ways before the Main Hiking Trail breaks off to end back at Sand Lake.

The Mid East side is a bit mucky right now for fast running. Fine for hiking if you're ok with some mud.
