Walking, Hiking and Backpacking in Your National Forest

Walking along our trails is a great way to experience the forest, especially in the fall, winter and spring. The heat and mosquitoes often put a damper on even the shortest hike during the summer. All three national forests offer a variety of opportunities from short, interpretive trails at developed recreation areas to long-distance backpacking along the Florida National Scenic Trail. Visitors can hike anywhere on the forest, on or off trail. Grab your water bottle and start stepping today!
