Estimated time: 3 hours.
Car-pooling is recommended as parking limited for approximately four vehicles is located at the Robertson Trail entrance located west of I-275, east of Livingston Avenue, north of Sunset Road and south of County Line Road. Currently the parking area uses a fence to contain cars, and there is a walk-through gate. Robertson Trail itself is very narrow and thus limits parking on the side of the road without partially blocking the road.
From the walk-through gate, the trail leads through open fields to oak/magnolia/hickory/sabal palm hardwood hammocks where interesting flora abounds including Thelypteris ovata (Ovate maidenfern) the endemic Pluchea longifolia (Longleaf camphorweed) and Burmannia biflora (Bluethread). The canopy covering the trail is decorated with epiphytic ferns, orchids and Tillandsia sp. The trail terminates at an open field adjacent to the west side of I-275. This is an easy hike, though chances are good we’ll veer off the trail here and there.
