Little - Big Econ State Forest: Kolokee Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The 5,048-acre forest is part of a wildlife-roaming corridor, including the Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area and other state lands that will create a 100-mile-long wildlife passage from State Road 46 and the Florida Turnpike. The Econlockhatchee River, a name that normally is shortened simply to the “Econ,” is a blackwater river that meanders through some of the least developed parts of central Florida, a region where open spaces are becoming more and more of a premium. About half the hike parallels the Econ River, which can be fished from the bank.

The Econ is a designated Outstanding Florida Waterway, deemed worthy of special protection because of its natural attributes. This hike is one of the region’s best waterway walks, with several primitive campsites. You have two choices: the state forest’s Kolokee Trail described here or a longer hike on a segment of the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST). The trails overlap only slightly."

For a close florida trail just north of Orlando it is a nice trail with portions along the river. I used it as training for a weekend trip with full pack.

This is a great trail for the kids and dogs. Follows the river with a few stretches that swing away for a little bit. At the junction of the hiking and horse trails is a large bridge and a beach where the dogs can play if they like water. Just keep an eye out for gators!
