It was “All Trails Day” in Oscar Scherer on the Saturday I was there. Volunteers were staged at various intervals with stamps, so that hikers could prove they hiked all the trails in the park. Since I just stumbled onto the event, I had to continually tell the “stampers” that I was unofficially on the trek. I had hiked two trails the day before, so I hiked only the ones that were new to me. Still, incredibly kind people manning the stations, and I had some great conversations with several of the volunteers.
South Creek runs through the park, in fact, I was camped on its bank. The offer a guided moonlight canoe trip at night down the creek, which is a trip I highly recommend. Only the guide up front has a headlamp, the rest of the group members have glow sticks slung over their backs, for canoeists to follow. It should be noted: The guide specifically told me, that if you are not from Florida, he will not point out the alligators to you while on the float.
