    I think this is the one that was on my hand. A lone star tick.

    Great hike on a Silver Lake trail I had never hiked before (always went on longer hike). Enjoyed hiking with the group. Thank for leading this trip, Lili.

    Another beautiful day to be outside except for that spotted tick that blew in the wind to land on my hand. Just something to be aware of. Thanks Lili

    Never been to the Silver Lake Rec area. Is it visible from Croom-Rital Rd? Or do I need to follow a secondary road into the interior? Also, what's a high water and low water trail? Thx!

      Directions: Take I-75 Exit 301 to US98/SR50. Turn east (away from Brooksville) and proceed about one mile until you reach the stop light at Croom Rital Road. Turn left and proceed [2.3 miles] north on Croom Rital Road. Follow signs to the Withlacoochee State Forest Silver Lake Recreation Area. Turn right onto Silver Lake Road and follow to Day Use Area and boat ramp. [I assume this is where we'll meet.]

      High water trail is the trail used if the river water level is too high to hike on the low water trail. The low water trail is right next to the river.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
