2015-03-29: Geocaching and Hiking With Friends in the Ocala National Forest

In store for us today was another hike along a section of the Florida Trail in the Ocala National Forest. We met up with YankaBucs, MsYB, and TeamFelixG along 52nd Place Rd and left a vehicle there. Then drove down to the south end of the trail along 145th Avenue to begin our hike.

We could definitely tell that this was a less often used section of the trail as the ground cover was growing up and some sections were very narrow making the trail almost non-existent. Near the beginning the ground was pretty muddy as well but soon dried up. I think we also picked up more ticks than the other hikes.

Overall it was a good day for hiking as the temperatures stayed fairly cool. We found a total of 26 caches along the trail. Another great adventure in the ONF with friends.
