This trail is a part of the Florida Trailwalker Program (https://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Florida-Forest-Service/Recreation/Hiking/Florida-Trailwalker-Trail-List-by-State-Forest)
It is also the smallest loop that composes a larger loop totalling about 46 miles, that people often backpack camp! It is a very popular backpacking loop for florida. and some of the longer loops even have caves, so i figured this would be a good way to get aquainted with the area, offer a hike that is not too challenging for begginers, while introducing to the possibility of pushing forward in the future on to the other parts of the trail.
