The Shady, Creekside Trail In Florida You’ll Want To Hike Again And Again
It’s always fun to talk about hiking with visitors to Florida, because very few of them can equate the Sunshine State with having abundant and rewarding trails. However, while there might not be huge mountaintop trails, or spectacular elevation gains, there are some pretty impressive trail systems throughout the state. This one particular trail, for instance, is as scenic as it gets, right along a spectacularly vibrant creek.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
If you’re ready to plan a trip along Econfina Creek, there are three different access points to consider:
Scott Road Trailhead
Pitt Spring Trailhead
Walsingham Bridge Trailhead
Whichever access point you choose, you will need to map your route accordingly from there.
