Using the south end of the Jackson Red Ground Trail, the very first trail built in Blackwater River State Forest in the 1970s, Florida Trail rises up from the red clay bluffs of Juniper Creek and enters rolling clayhills topped with longleaf pine forests. This is a high and dry segment of the trail in Blackwater River State Forest.

Prior to becoming part of the Florida Trail, the route was established by foresters at Blackwater River State Forest as a historic trail, following the path taken by General Andrew Jackson and his 1,200 troops in 1818 as they marched towards Pensacola.
