Seminole Wekiva Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Located in the all-important Wekiva River Basin, the 25,812-acre Seminole State Forest is one of the last black bear strongholds in central Florida. Around fifty of the animals are believed to move in and out of the basin regularly. The forest contains all thirteen of the region’s natural communities, including 1,725 acres of sand pine scrub, a true scarcity outside the Ocala National Forest. The forest contains more than 21 miles of hiking trails, including the featured hike—a section of the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) that runs north-south through the length of the forest. There also are three loop trails: River Creek, Sulphur Island, and Paola Loops. The Lower Wekiva Loop Trail and Sulphur Island Loop are included in the Florida Division of Forestry’s Trailwalker Program."
