Hello! Time to open up our calendar again! As in the past two years, this hike will have a 4 mile loop option, as well as an 11 mile loop option. The 4 mile option will be the beautiful, shaded Seminole and Baynard Trails. For those interested, we will continue on into Dead River Park and do the 7+ mile loop returning to the HRSP parking area... More details to follow. Normal day use fees apply. $6.00 per vehicle 2-6 occupants / $4.00 single occupant / online payment may be available. https://www.floridastateparks.org/learn/park-admission-online-payment Last September 2019 Suncoast did a major trail cleanup on the Seminole Trail. Let's plan on that again in honor of National Public Lands Day, Sept 26. We will scout it out beforehand,and coordinate with park staff. Lenny
