When it came time to write the second edition of 50 Hikes in Central Florida, there was a need to generate new interest in the book by adding new hikes. In all, I exchanged 17 of the original hikes for newer or more interesting trails in the same region.
Back in September, one of my readers, Fredrik Coulter, started on a mission to find out what happened to those missing trails. He’s been visiting and posting new information on these original “50 Hikes” on an almost-weekly basis since then, and I think it’s pretty cool, since I haven’t had time to get back and revisit these myself.
Posted thus far:
Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, St. Petersburg
Bunscombe Hill Interpretive Trail, Deland
Panasofkee Outlet, Lake Panaosofkee
Perry Oldenberg Mitigation Park, Brooksville
Pine Island Conservation Area, Merritt Island
Reedy Creek Swamp, Poinciana
Tenoroc FMA, Lakeland
Thanks for Fredrik for providing these helpful updates! Along with these, he’s been posting other trails as well on his blog on MyFloridaHikes.
