Hike the Flatwoods Trail

4.5 miles  - Point-to-Point Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Towering pines and dense undergrowth surround you, and the path stretches out in front of you in this woodsy, beachy, unique region of Florida.

It is advised to first stop at the Main Graywood State Park Entrance and get a trailmap from the rangers. To access the trail, park at the pulloff on E Co Hwy 30A across from Old Miller Pl. The trail takes you through tall pines and rich green undergrowth. Plenty of fascinating wildlife live here, keep your eyes and ears out for them and respect the space you share.

Good exercise

This is a great trail for some exercise, but it is sometimes overgrown and tick/mosquitoes are thick.

If You're In The Area

Decent half day hike with a few different trail options and a lakeside view. Flat throughout the whole trail with not much change of scenery unless you take the lake loop. I don't recommend going out of your way for this hike but if you're close by then it's not bad to check out. I recommend wearing waterproof shoes or bringing extra socks because there can be spots you have to walk through water to get through the trail.
