This is a very nice hike, but it can be a little difficult or very easy depending on when you do it (weather and water). The day I did it the sun was hot and the mosquitoes where after me with a vengeance - it was fortunate I put a lot of deet and sunscreen on before starting the hike. I really enjoyed the 8+ miles as it started in the palmettos "ponds" and then entering the Crabgrass Creek area and then back into the Palmettos and open fields. The trail is well blazed with orange paint - I did lose the trail a couple of times, but them found it again with little trouble. I started from the east side, I recommend starting from the west side if it is going to be a hot day (all open that way for a few miles). There is a picnic table on a short blue blazed trail off the main trail, which makes a nice rest spot - this closer to the east side start than the west side, so planning is what you might want to do. Part of the trail in the Crabgrass Creek section is dedicated to Cathi Riley who is no longer with us - consider thinking of her for what she did to create this trail. Like everything in the wild, who knows what you will encounter - my biggest problem was the mud I stepped in which covered my boots. I did see some deer, hogs, turkeys and cattle - they do share the trail with you, but like always they are more scared of you than you should be of them, take my word for it. I did find some hunter trash along the trail, so please consider picking up any trash you might encounter, hikers are just that way! Also, please take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints. Always check the hunting schedule before going to this area as it is a "WMA". Check my website for hunting schedules, downloading tracks and more pictures - - happy trails to all!
