Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9am.
Join "50 Hikes" author Sandra Friend for a 3-mile stroll in the woods on the Lake George Trail (Hike #25 in "50 Hikes in North Florida") at Silver Glen Springs Recreation Area, Ocala National Forest, as part of the Marion County Springs Festival. Admission to the recreation area is free that day with a coupon from www.springsfest.org We'll visit Jody's Spring (as described in the novel /The Yearling/) and walk the Lake George Trail past ancient middens to overlooks with excellent views of Lake George; bring your camera! Enjoy the rest of your day swimming, canoeing, or just relaxing at the park. Silver Glen Springs is along SR 19, 9 miles north of SR 40 in the Ocala National Forest, directly across from the Yearling Trail.
