Hal Scott Regional Preserve And Park, Orlando Reviews
Nice trail, we came in late June. The trail is very wet this time of year, and some parts of it are inaccessible without water boots, or maybe horseback. It has plenty of parking, and when we came, there were very few others out. The trail throughout the part as we were in featured limited shade. I recommend bringing a big hat, and obviously plenty of water. Overall a very easy hike.
Nice place to hike or bike. The trip from the parking area to the Econ River following the white trail blazes is beautiful.
Some of the path had crushed shell, some had gravel and some was just grass. Some of it was muddy and some was submerged under water. There were some mosquitos and horse flys, but it was not bad for late July. There are three paths, all clearly marked.
Trails are nice and well maintained. There is no t much out there though. Lots of pine trees and small palms that stay low to the ground. Open 24 hours and has a nice group camp site. No running or drinking water available and we only saw one portapotty for restrooms available at the group site. Only thing that makes this place a little less beautiful is the power plant in Avalon is highly visible from the start of the white trail.
The trails span a very nice area of preserved land, however the half-way point of the white trail--where beutiful trees and airplants loom up above--is submerged and has no point of accesibility from around. (A small, foot-wide bridge would be nice but there are some fallen trees one could attempt to walk across) the other orange/non-well-marked trail was also flooded. Most of the trails are in direct sunlight while the parts of the trail which are shaded by beautiful trees are flooded, so visiting during a cloudy day (with not rainfall the previous couple of days) is preferable (the park opens at 8am--when the sun is already heating up the flatlands--and closes before the sunset can cool off the air by much) Water is a must, and NO RESTROOMS or outhouses are available. (But you'll be sweating while looking around the funky landscape, peeing will be the last thing on your mind) Not always perfectly maintained (many areas were overgrown with half-to-the-knee grasses) and there are SNAKES though non aggressive, the standard move-out-of-your-way sun bathers (but be on guard to assure dog safety). And [August 4th] there are ticks.
