Using Orlando Wetlands Park to access the northeast corner of Bronson State Forest, this 7.5-mile loop burrows deeply into ancient forests in the St. Johns River floodplain.
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.
