Tate's Hell State Forest & the High Bluff Hiking Trail
This is a really, really wild place that's surrounded by other incredibly wild places. If you're looking to get seriously into the thick of things, Tate's Hell State Forest is where you want to be.
Or perhaps you just want a peek into Tate's Hell State Forest and see what it's all about. That's where the High Bluff Coastal Hiking Trail comes in handy -- it's a four-mile well-marked walk into coastal scrub and flatwoods habitats. It's a linear hike, meaning you'll need to plan to tack on four miles for the return trip if you do the whole thing.
The trail is super easy to find, with two trailheads (east and west) located right on U.S. 98. Look for the large brown forestry signs near the entrances. The High Bluff Hiking Trail is also part of Florida's State Forest Trailwalker Program.
