The entry in Short Family Hikes for the Boardwalk Trail in Blue Spring State Park near Orlando described the history of the West Indian manatee and the boardwalk trail beside the spring run that the endangered mammals inhabit during the cool winter months. Now it’s time to get into the real outdoors and a true wilderness hike through an undisturbed area bordering the St. Johns River. You’ll end up at a primitive campsite beside the river.

This trail is almost entirely on a dirt access road to the primitive campsites. It is an easy walk about 3.5 miles one way and ends at the river. It is interesting to see the changes in ecosystems along the way.
