After two days of rain that got us caught up with chores and shopping, we were back in the forest. The Yearling Trail goes through a sand scrub habitat to an area that was settled in 1872. In 1933 author Marjorie Rawlings visited the Long family and heard stories of their lives that provided material for her mover, "the Yearling".
We hiked a four mile loop where we spotted Florida Scrub Jays, Red Headed Woodpecker and Eastern Bluebird. We caught a brief glimpse of whitetail deer and lots if deer tracks along with lots of bear tracks.
After our hike we visited nearby Silver Glen Springs.
