Whitaker Woods Trails are well blazed and easy to follow. They cross streams, wind up hills, cut through old stone walls and pass through many areas of beautiful ferns. I did the hike in the summer time, but I’m sure hiking the trails in winter can also be fun. If you get a trail map and stay on the trails you shouldn’t get disoriented. As always I suggest carrying a handheld GPS unit like the Etrex 20, just to keep track of where you are. There are some GEOCaches in the area, so if you’re into that, have fun! As I mentioned, the old stonewalls are truly magnificent! Whitaker Woods is adjacent to McCann Family Farm, so be careful if you don’t want to windup in the wrong area. I have a website with some general information about hiking etc. The trails are mainly about Florida, so you may not be interested in that part of the website – www.tomchoma.com Happy trails to all!
