Trip Report/Photos

Two of us did this hike over a 4 hour period. We had sunny weather in the 70's with a slight breeze. 


This hike through Florida prairie was differend than the previous day's hike. There were an absence of pine trees on this section of the trail. We did a little over a mile of hammock though.  Godwin Hammock , where we had the only shade for the day.


If you have a phobia of walking through high grass, this was not the hike for you.
