Just south of Tallahasse, the 7.5 mile Munson Hills Loop is a challenging trek over dunes and through towering longleaf pine forest. The rolling hills have shady valleys of oak, cherry and other hardwoods. Watch out for deer, fox squirrels and the protected gopher tortoise which burrow in the sand near the trails.

To reach the hiking trailhead from Tallahasse, head south on SR363. Just south of St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail parking lot, the MHL takes off to the west.

Overall, Munson Hills Loop is the 7th most popular hiking trail of all 43 hikes in Florida. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Munson Hills Loop including Tom Brown Park Trail, Florida National Scenic Trail, Gregory House Loop, Florida National Scenic Trail, Fort Braden Trails and High Bluff Coastal Hiking Trail.
