“FUN WITH A GROUP”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This was fun as a group to explore some caves a hike around for a while. Not something I would do again soon. I would rather be on the water in this area, so much more to do.

“True Florida Wilderness!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

46 miles of trails that can promise you a thrill. Travel through many environments and be prepared for elevation changes! This is not "flat Florida" Make sure you carry water as these trails are dry. Call Dept of forestry to obtain permit prior to hiking as portions open to hunters in season - . 3 local campgrounds and a colony of endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers are pluses to hiking here. Great trails for hiking and horseback. There are even shallow caves in the southern portion of the forest. I have guided hikes for days out there and not seen another human...many coyotes, hog, deer and turkey though!

Reviewed April 23, 2012

We walked along the trails, which were kept very clean and clear. The shade from the trees made walking very enjoyable.

“Great Place”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

I heard about this place from the Captain at River Ventures (great manatee touring company) and decided to check it out before coming home to Miami. I am glad I did. The caves were difficult to find, I suggest you google map (peace cave) before going...it was pretty fantastic to be near caves that are wild and unkept.

We had also gone to Caverns State Park in the panhandle...and that cave system is gorgeous. Great to see a kept state park and a wild site. Both systems had bats.
