Yearling Trail on Pat's Island is a great way to explore the natural beauty and visit some interesting historic sites. This area is open for hiking from dawn to dusk and is moderately easy to navigate. It has 2 loops, measuring 5.5 and 3.5 miles each. Though it is not clearly marked in some parts, you will not find any difficulty in exploring Ocala National Forest. Keep in mind that the first and the last mile of the trail is not shaded by trees and if you are here in the noon, the sun exposure may prove hard to bear.
Yearling Trail Reviews & Ratings
The historical significance makes this an interesting hike, but it is not for the general population. Be prepared! It's hot, there are snakes and spiders, and it's a long time before you reach a marker. Definitely a fun challenge and the sink hole and homestead remains are worth the hike, but bring water!
It was great hiking back in time! This place has such a rich history. Unfortunately most of town is gone but the sink hole was stunning. The cementery is well taking care. I definitely do not regret hiking it.
Meg was the best server! Couldn't ask for better! Friendly, offered her opinion when asked, was fast. We loved her and will ask for her when we return. 😁
Tranquility n relaxation n fun to the Max!!! Very beautiful everywhere u put ur eyes!
Had a wonderful time walking this trail. We added some extra Florida Trail to make it a longer hike. There's a lot of history on this trail. I would recommend taking a picture of the map so you could better understand what the numbers on the post represent. Some are obvious but, we didn't remember all until we saw the map as the hike ended.
