This easy walk makes a nice, short stop for those traveling on Florida’s west coast. The Little Manatee River divides the 2,400-acre park into two sections. The southern part, with its developed campground, horse trail, and canoe launch, is what most people see. That’s because the northern half is open only to controlled foot traffic. Hikers must stop at the ranger station (open at 8:00 a.m.) to get the lock combination to enter the parking area at the trailhead. This leg of the Florida National Scenic Trail is considered the finest hiking for miles around. But during the summer rains, it can be extremely wet, so check ahead.
