“An easy doubletrack trail, but you’ll get your feet wet.”— T K
Combine with the White Loop Trail and Red Loop Trail for a 16.5 mile training run.
To start the trail, you’ll cross a bridge over the Econlockhatchee River. However, just before the bridge, there is often standing water to cross that is as much as shin deep. That’s right...you start the trail by immediately getting your feet wet.
Past the bridge, there’s a fork in the trail to start the loop. Take the left side to go by a small camping area early in the run.
In the summer months, afternoon showers means occasional standing water on the trail. Most of the trail is grassy with sandy soil. The sand is hard packed and isn’t difficult to run on.
At a couple of points along the trail you can see the Stanton Energy Center smoke stacks. For most of the trail, though, you’ll see only trees, grassy wetlands, and blue skies.
There are a couple of tricky turns. Pay attention to double yellow blazes for turns and make sure you are headed in the correct direction after the turn by spotting yellow blazes along the trail.
This trail is almost flat. For some reason, the elevation graph shows a sharp elevation change at beginning and end, but this is inaccurate.
