I went in January, 2018. Trails are part of an ancient dune system stretching in a north/south line in central Florida. There is quite a bit of elevation change and winding paths so the walk is not boring. There are deer, bald eagles, scrub jays...More

Overall, this is about a 12 miles hike. The terrain is white sand so microspikes might make it easier to traverse. We only did the Creek Bluff Loop and was very enjoyable. While this is listed under Lake Wales, the western entrance is in Babson...More
