1) No sugar sand stretches, or only short ones
2) Mostly in the woods or at least shady considering the Florida sun
3) Hills are great but can be hard to find here.
4) No road walks
5) Occasional water sources like lakes or creeks. Parallel to a river or
creek is especially good.
6) Critters and birds
7) Old structures add interest
8) Good campsites
