2015-02-01: Hiking the Florida Trail thru the Ocala National Forest

What a great day! We met up with YankaBucs and MsYB up in the Ocala National Forest to go Geocaching and hiking along a section of the Florida Trail. Leaving one car at the trail crossing along side Forest Road 599, we drove the other car around and up to State Road 40 where the Florida Trail crosses again. This way we wouldn't have to backtrack.

The hike was approximately 4 miles long, varying slightly between a couple GPS's, phones, and step trackers. Could be the walking in circles at each cache location while trying to find them. This section of the Florida Trail was an easy hike with some minor bushwhacking, again when leaving the trail at the cache locations.

All in all it was a good day finding 21 caches, getting some fresh air and sunshine, and a little bit of cardio exercise. Leaving south out of the ONF, we stopped at Beef O'Brady's in Umatilla for some lunch.

I think they need a new sign.
