Added by The Outbound Collective

Lush Florida landscape unfolds all around you on this relatively short but challenging hike that features swamp life and a shimmering lake.

The Alafia Trail is a 3.6 mile loop is a very scenic way to get your heart pumping. The bright and lush vegetation will keep you intrigued all along the way. This trail is frequented not only by hikers but also mountain bikers, so be prepared to share the trail one way or another. It would be wise to pack water and sun protection for this hike!
