Western Corridor Hiking Series Hike 5 49th Ave. TH to Pruitt TH
This hike brings us through the final FNST area on the Cross Florida Greenway. Hike 5 is gorgeous. It's also a bit of a workout. We'll hike up and down 4 sets of diggings. Yes, there are hills in Florida, albeit man-made ones! We'll also see the infamous Bear Tree and a memorial known as Pruitt's Stonehenge. Possible optional tubing in Rainbow River to follow.
