Little Big Econ State Forest
Named one of the United State's most family-friendly hikes by the American Hiking Society, the Florida Trail's 4.7 mile Little Big Econ section is one any visitor to the Orlando area should seek out and enjoy. On this meandering route paralleling the Econlockhatchee River, you'll enjoy views of the river from the bluffs, lush stands of palm trees, and numerous bridge crossings over tributaries that feed the river. The forest also has 10 miles of equestrian trails and about 8 miles of mountain bike trails. See web page for Econlockhatchee River Paddling Trail for information about kayaking or canoeing through the forest on this scenic waterway.
