The Yearling Trail (Ocala National Forest) Pat's Island on the Yearling Trail, a walk through the Big Scrub to an island of pine that the Long family once called home. This interpretive trail system leads you past a variety of historic structures, including an old cattle dip vat, a cistern, the remains of several homestead sites, and the Long family cemetery. In the center of it all is a giant sinkhole where the pre-1900 settlers collected drinking water.

    Thanks for the track Florida Trail Blazer. It was great having this additional Nav Aid as I was using this trail to hike to Hidden Pond on the Florida Trail.

    Great trail with a lot of history. Seeing Scrub Jays is always a plus. Beware, in the summertime the chiggers are brutal.
