    Sorry Bob Mac, I'm still getting used to the new naming conventions here. Alexander Springs is near the southern border of Ocala National Forest.

    My husband and I often camp there with friends who do not like to primitive camp. What we like about the place it that the campsites offer a bit of seclusion and they don't have hook-ups for RVs, so the place never feels like a parking lot.

    There are some some short hiking trails within the area and a trailhead nearby. The Florida Trail is only .5 miles away.

    Bob Mac,

    Look for a PM with my contact info should you end up passing back through. Are you soloing it or with family/friends?

    Not planning on it, but anything is possible! Especially if someone else wanted to get a paddle in.

    This sounds wonderful, Gumbo, but I have way too many "projects" to complete before the Florida Hang.
