One of the lesser-known trails of Little Big Econ State Forest, Culpepper Bend leads you to a panorama where the Econlockhatchee River meets the St. Johns River
Bronson State Forest
Hiking, biking, paddling, camping, and other outdoor recreation in Bronson State Forest, which spans from the St. Johns River to its confluence with the Econlockhatchee River, protecting nearly 11,000 acres of floodplain in Orange and Seminole counties. When it was acquired, the land was primarily used for cattle grazing, and cattle leases are still active. Expect to encounter cows and bulls roaming the forests. The Florida Trail traverses Bronson State Forest between Seminole Ranch and Chuluota Wilderness, with several loop trails affording long walks out to the river.
