Eco Tourism at its finest. Great place to swim and hike. There's also a place for primitive camping near Juniper Springs. The waters were clear and many shades of blue. There's a scenic boardwalk, bridge and historical millhouse.

This forest offers so many varieties of ecosystems and it’s a great way to get away from the madness of Orlando. It’s not too far of a drive and I loved it.
You’ll see gators, manatee, a possible bear and very few humans!!! :)
We live on the border of the Forest and have to drive through to get places on the east coast of Florida. Most of the time it is a quiet drive. There are two visitor stations on the north and south sides as you enter...More

Hey! I think you’ll get a great feel for that area in one long afternoon. There’s a cool spot where the manatee like to feed....google that and you’ll find it. But really, once you hike one spot you’ve basically hiked the whole place! I’m sure i missed a few local gems whenever i was there but it seemed to be redundant each place I drove to.
Have an AMAZING strip!! 😊
