[ft-l] Questions from a lurker

The FTA trail at Hillsborough River State Park is a really neat day hike,
you walk along the river, see the rapids(Florida-style) and generally have a
nice walk of about 4 miles all under canopy. Little Manatee River SRA has a
great day hike along the river too that is just outside Brandon.
