A section of the Florida Trail winds through the 194,803-acre Osceola National Forest and ends at Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park, site of Florida’s largest Civil War battle. Osceola National Forest is composed primarily of pine flatwoods and an especially user-friendly forest. In late spring, visitors can pick blueberries and blackberries Strangler fig roots sometimes appear as harmless decorative vine, but eventually the aerial roots engulf the tree and kill the host, allowing the strangler fig to become a separate entity of its own.
