[ft-l] Daytona Area trails

Wild Persimmon is about 4 miles is pretty wet right now, so I can't really
recommend it although the pancakes can make up for soggy boots.  St. Francis
is approx. 8 miles total, with a small extra loop thrown in.  It was dry
last month.  Washington Oaks is short, under 2 miles, but has beautiful
terrain and flowers.  Bulow at 6 miles it makes a nice day hike, altho
that's one way.  There is also a short nature walk at the Fairchild Oak
that's pretty.
