Little Manatee River State Park is very diverse and wild.

The park does not allow swimming in the river because of alligators.  The park also...

Hiking Along the Loxahatchee River
by Gator_Man on Oct 19, 2011
Jupiter, Florida, United States
Hiking | 9.0 miles
After being cooped up by rainy weather for three days, I was ready for a hike in the woods. The East side of the river along here is particularly enchanting, with old growth Oaks and Cypress, lush ferns and Spanish Moss. After so much rain, the trails were very wet with large puddles, but I didn't mind.

The park does not allow swimming in the river because of alligators, but a public swimming pool is provided (an additional admission fee is charged for...

Hillsborough River State Park

Thonotosassa, Florida, United States
Hiking | 5.9 miles
The river was named in the late 1700s for Wills Hills, the British Colonial Secretary and Lord Earl of Hillsborough. After Florida became a U.S. Territory, settlers migrating in created conflict with the resident Seminole tribes. The U.S. government's plan to transport the Seminoles sparked the Second Seminole War. In 1835, Fort Alabama was built to protect the bridge over the Hillsborough River from Fort King (Ocala) to Fort Brooke (Tampa). The...

Florida, United States
Hiking | 8.7 miles
This is a great 8.7 mile hike along the Florida Trail. This section takes you through the Juniper Wilderness where the signs warn of: Falling Trees Lack of vehicle access Animal Encounters Bad Weather We saw evidence of all those things on our walk, with bear scat every 1/4 mile, deer frolicking, tornado damaged forest, and a lot of downed trees.
