Didn’t get to explore as much as we wanted to because it was late in the day and a storm was rolling in. In the short time we were there we did see a Florida black bear. Scary but fascinating at the same time!

We decided to check out this area due to the history & the song written about this place. Abundance of dirt roads but easy driving even without a 4x4. We were looking for the dwarf cypress trees and finally found them. Parked the Tahoe and...More

Beautiful forest with something for everyone - if you could find it. Almost all of the street signs for the grid of dirt roads within the forest were missing. If it weren't for the kindness of strangers, we'd probably still be there ;-} However, the...More

We went to see the minature cyprus tress (really interesting!) and was able to watch some forest thinning too! It was a nice diversion from the beach view.

This is four and a half miles off the main road along a well surfaced sand road. Make sure you research the road you need to get there as all signage was absent the day we went and we strayed the wrong way at first....More

Wen't to see the dwarf cyprus boardwalk. It was a 5.5 mile drive over sandy roads, with no signage till we came to the end--then a sign to turn left. The roads had been recently used by logging trucks, so some of the roads were...More

Tate's Hell State Forest is 5.5 miles from the main road (98). We wanted to see the dwarf cypress boardwalk. Well, hold on to your hats, because most of the dwarf cypresses were dead and the "boardwalk" was only perhaps 100'. I found the prospect...More

it has two entrances. The West entrance is the one we found most picturesque. HIking is fine here. With dogs watch out for sand burrs and ticks. Avoid the heavy sandy areas.

We experienced Tate's Hell on land and by water. The trip through the woods to the Dwarf Cypress Tree Boardwalk was an adventure ... lots of dirt roads and a GPS that stayed confused but we got there. Now I know why they call it...More
