The Little Big Econ State Forest stretches approximately 10,336 acres in central Florida. The forest's name comes from combining the names of the Little Econlockhatchee River and the larger Econlockhatchee River, which come together just south of the forest. The Econlockhatchee River, the second largest tributary of the St. Johns, flows 17 miles through the forest before it empties into the St. Johns River. The forest boasts 16.3 miles of hiking trails, including eight miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Paddlers can traverse the Econlockhatchee River Paddling Trail during a day trip, or travel over multiple days if you're up for primitive camping along the Econlockhatchee River. Horse trails, bicycle trails, hunting and fishing are also available.
Little Big Econ State Forest is located in eastern Seminole County in Geneva, Florida.
