The first three miles will be south of the Osage Overlook. We will take the Bartram Trail to the West Fork, then the Hurrah Ridge, returning to the Bartram and then taking the Puc Puggy trail to the Overlook. Puc Puggy came about when William Bartram met Ahaya the Cowkeep, chief of the Alachua band of the Seminole tribe. When Bartram explained to the Cowkeeper that he was interested in studying the local plants and animals, the chief was amused and began calling him Puc Puggy (the flower hunter). It is approximately 1012 feet of elevation gain. The good news here is that you don't have to carry your lunch (yet) or all your water.
Looking for some beautiful trilliums!!!
