|Markham Rd Trailhead|
There's a little-known trail on Markham Rd. It shares a parking area with the Cross-Seminole Trail. I've never walked that trail because it's paved. However, there are also unpaved trails here. I've been told that this property is a part of the Wekiwa Springs State Park, but I haven't been able to verify that. It's a pretty enough park. Honestly, if I'm going to drive to the area, I'm more likely to head a little farther to the Lower Wekiva River Preserve, so for the most part I go here for my volunteer work with the Florida Breeding Bird Atlas.

I haven't been able to find a trail map of this location. It looks like I might need to make my own, so to speak, the next time I go. That is, I can certainly use My Tracks while walking the trails, and then show you the trails that I've walked. I tend to walk south towards a little stretch of pine flatwoods that I find particularly pretty.
There is very little here by way of amenities. There is a restroom by the parking lot, but not much else. More time than not, I've left the park with a tick on me. So please check for ticks and use bug spray when you're here.
