A portion of the hiking trail in this area, as marked with an orange blaze, is officially designated as part of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Blue blazes mark the hiking loop trail that heads south just east of the Land Bridge and eventually returns north to the trailhead. There is a resting bench midway along this 1.75-mile loop.

Some of the equestrian trails are suitable for horse-drawn wagons or carriages and include a trail that continues east across CR 475A to the Florida Horse Park. Horse trailer parking and a horse washing area are available at this trailhead, along with fresh water for horses and a paddock.
