Started from D.T. Fleming Park, enjoying the trail. barely into the trail it’s impassable due to thick overgrown ( tree or tropical vines). Had to turn around, very disappointed! Looked awesome and reviews were so good, I was looking forward to the journey. I’m grateful...More

What an amazing 10 mike hike. We didn’t see one other person the entire time. This hike is difficult but well worth it!! Lots of shade. Bring water and a camera.

I thought this hike was harder than "moderate", considering how slippery it was and how uphill. The whole hike to the ridge is uphill, and the top of the ridge was covered with clouds when I got there. I really enjoyed the first mile the...More
