East trail in a nice state park with great views of the Florida Mountains and the opportunity to collect rocks while hiking.

This trail is an easy walk through cacti and desert vegetation. Hikers are allowed to collect rocks while hiking this trail. There are designated places where hikers can look for rocks. There are very good views of the Florida Mountains and the valley to the west. In the springtime many blooming cacti can also be enjoyed. The state has a nice visitor center and a very good campground. There is a $5.00 entrance fee per car to the state park.
