About Orland Hiking
Orlando's reputation as a major family destination is well deserved
based on its many family orientated resorts and activities, including
water parks, zoos, theme parks, and of course Universal Studios.
While Orlando's family attractions are why tourists usually visit,
and with so many great Orlando vacation deals,
it's no wonder, but there is a much quieter side to its
personality. Orlando is also a fabulous destination for hiking and
walking,with plenty of beautiful scenery reachable regardless of your
physical abilities or skill.
Consider the Econ Loop Trail through Orlando's less developed terrain. This loop runs along the Econlockhatchee River, or the Econ. If you are interested in botany, you will find this to be an intersting trail because of its selection of plants. There are guides that can be hired to explain the life you encounter on your trek.
Another interesting hike is in the Seminole State Forest, spread across more than 100,000 acres. This forest is located in the Wekiva River Basin, an interesting destination for ecological study.
Finally, consider a visit to Blue Spring Park. This park is one of the most versatile hiking destinations in Orlando, and provides a great assortment of walking and hiking trails, as well as areas where you can put down picnic blankets and take a lunch break. Different routes cover different aspects of the parks ecology. Among the animals you may see are the Manatee.
