If we only have a short afternoon to visit the Ocala Nat Forest, what trail or trails would give us the best idea of what the Fl ecosystem is like? We are moderate hikers, but must limit our hike to no more than 4 or 5 miles. We are fine with taking off on a hike and then turning around and re-covering our first 1/2 of the hike, but loops, of course, are nicer. We will have a small rental car and understand some areas are difficult to get to.
Hi Bob, sorry! I accidentally hit that "no" for helpful answer when I was trying to hit reply.
But no, we have not left yet, so we still welcome trail advice.
