Little Big Econ State Forest Barr St. Trailhead, Oviedo/Orlando

Directions:  Take S.R. 50 or University Blvd. to Alafaya and go north. Then go east on McCulloch Rd until the first stoplight. Go left on Lockwood until it deadends. Go right about 1 mile and you'll see the entrance on your right.

Trail Information:  It is pretty flat, but has a good enough variation in terrain to give you a good workout. The trail is part of the Appalachian Trail that runs up the east coast. So, basically, you can run two miles or to Canada. Watch out for the 2x4 bridges, they're kinda shakey!

Miscellaneous Information:  The trail stays along the river and is absolutely beautiful. After you cross the fourth bridge, there is almost always this 8-ft. alligator on the opposite bank. Look for him, he's awesome.
