Hike A Loop, Citrus Tract of WSF

Join us for a naturalist led 6.5 mile loop hike in the Citrus Tract of the WSF near Inverness, FL. We'll be taking time for identifying flora and fauna so this will not be a fast paced hike. Bring a day pack, 2 qts. of water, lunch, trail snacks, sunscreen, a hat, and a light rain jacket.
We'll meet at Pleasant Grove Elementary School (630 Pleasant Grove Rd, Inverness) just 2 miles south of Inverness to arrange our car pooling to the trail head.
Leader: Marcie Clutter[masked]

    We were very fortunate to finish our hike before the rain started around 1:30 p.m. A big thank you to all the hikers who showed up despite an unfavorable weather forecast and didn't mind all the nature interpretation along the trail. I bet there a few of you that now know the call of the great crested flycatcher--and also know what one looks like thanks to Marty's photo.

    Hi Joy, So glad you were able to make the hike on Sat. I'm sorry I was not able to respond to your email before you came. I've had trouble with my Yahoo account and will soon be switching over to gmail. Hope to see you on another hike before too long!

    We met some very knowledgeable hikers today. We learned so much about the flora & fauna of this area. It was nice to be able to "stop & smell the .... (sorry no roses) for a change. Nice to see some old & new faces. Thank you Marcie for arranging this hike.

    Hi Marc,
    Thank you for asking about the limit on the number of people hiking at one time. I lead hikes that focus on identifying plants, birds, snakes, etc. and taking time for photography. I limit my hikes because it is very difficult for the leader to share information with people as we hike if the numbers are higher than 18. Smaller numbers also allow people to visit better and build friendships more easily.

    Arlene and Marty,
    I am not starting the hike at Holder to cut down on mileage. The blue blazed trail from Holder would add another 1.5 miles to our hike which is already 6.5 miles long. We will be starting our hike where the FTA crosses Haven Street. Please be sure to meet us at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. Call me at (352)[masked] if you have any questions.

      I appreciate the clarriication. We plan on attending the hike.

    NOTE TO ALL HIKERS!! The weather forecast is for scattered thunderstorms Sat. starting at 10:00 a.m. Please bring a rain jacket with a hood and if you have them, rain pants. I advise hiking in boots for this trip since it looks like it will be a wet one.

  • Arlene/Marty Winick-DYNAMIC D.

    A couple of us will be camping nearby at Holder. I think the trail head for A loop in in the campground. If so, we will meet you there. Please advise. Arlene

      Arlene, it's true that the trailhead is located near Holder with a .1 mile blue access trail. However, it looks like Marcie is planning to start at the Haven St. crossing near the school and avoid the .2 mile in-and-out blue trek. Phyllis

    • Phyllis J.

      Sorry, just re-read the write-up. It does say "trail-head." Marcie, please clarify.

    I never remember waiting lists when we were active a couple of years ago. What is with the waiting lists? In fact the hikes were always open to anyone. It is not like there is limited seating!!! I'll need an explaination if I am going to be active again.

    Had a wonderful hike with Amanda and friends today and did ok but my back is telling me I need more than a day of rest before doing it again so regretfully I'm going to hand over a spot to someone on the wait list.

    Was really looking forward to this hike, but had a personal conflict pop up. Rats! Hopefully next time.

  • Arlene/Marty Winick-DYNAMIC D.

    Thinking of going up Friday & camping at Tillis or Holder mine. Anyone interested? Arlene

    Hike notes: Remember to bring 2 full quarts of water for this trip.
    The heat and humidity are starting to rise in FL and you'll feel best when you stay hydrated.

    No dogs on the hike please. We will be leaving some vehicles at Pleasant Grove Elementary to carpool to the FTA trail that crosses Haven Ave. in Inverness. We can decide on which cars to leave once we meet Sat. morning.

    oops, I forgot, I can't make this one. Rats!
