Western Corridor Series - Hike #1! Old Hunt Station to Eaton Creek

Join us in bear country as we kick off the Western Corridor series, a series of hikes covering the entire Western Corridor of the Florida National Scenic Trail. We begin in the Ocala National Forest near the junction of the East and West Corridors. Meet at the Old Hunt Station located near the junction of CR 316 and FR 11 (old 88). Join us as we head south on the Florida trail to the junction of the East and West Corridors. Follow the Western Corridor through unique habitats. Notice the moss lined paths that resemble a path through newly fallen snow. Keep your eyes open for a Florida black bear..... this is bear country. We will have a vehicle at the half way point for those that do not want to hike the entire 11.5 miles. Bob Jones will be leading this hike. It is the same location Bob will begin his walk across Marion County at the end of January.

This hike is lead by Bob Jones of the Florida Crackers Chapter!

If anyone wants to carpool, let me know. (Elizabeth)

    Glad you enjoyed it, Dale!
    It was nice to see you!
    We had a great time yesterday as well - especially walking through Hulls Creek with the cypress knees.
    Hope to see you again soon!
    Next time, maybe stick with us slow-pokes. I walked with Josef yesterday. Feeling it a little today :-) Elizabeth

    Just wanted to say it was a great hike! Thank you very much for setting up this series of walks Elizabeth. I hiked with 2 (Laura and Joseph) people from the "central Florida" group not sure if that was right name. I am pretty sure Joseph is hands down the fastest walker I have ever met! I think during a break which I am pretty sure was just for me he said he was doing a 3.7 mile pace I was not! Great time but Joseph and Laura wore me out! Can't wait for next week.

      I think it will be leisurely. There is a half-way point as well, where a car will be left, for those who want a shorter hike. You can write to Bob and ask him. He's the one from the Florida Cracker Chapter who is leading the hike. His contact info is in the description.

    Is this a loop or do I need to figure out a shuttle?
