Mostly it's 12 miles of trails in young pine forest and a couple pretty lakes.
Woodpeckers, some wading birds in lakes, we've had good luck with warblers.
Like I said above - nothing would surprise me but we haven't seen what ought to be here yet: turkey, deer, etc. The ranger said there were some special bobcats there but although bobcats are everywhere you're very lucky if you spot one.
Very nice! Great shelters, bathrooms, fishing piers. Very nice place to visit. Rangers seem especially friendly.
16 miles north of Lakeland just south of the Withlacoochee River off of State Road 471
Thank you - you're making it a really nice park!
You could spend all day hiking but often we just stop at the lake then walk a few miles of the trailhead off the main road.
We usually stop at the main lake to take some photos and then drive back to the trail that's off the main road (you see the trailhead on the left side when entering, about half way to the lake where the trees end and it's open suddenly on the left side of the road). It starts out with some tall grasses on the right and the forest on the left then pretty quickly it turns left into the tall young pine forest. That forest has a lot of palmetto bushes down low and the tall pines give the feeling of sort of a large enclosed space. So it's a nice walk. We tend to see birds in the first half mile or mile most often.
