I am fairly new to hiking. I haven't done any hiking except for day hikes. Ever since my brother did 5 days on the Appalachian Trail last year it is all I can think about. I am going to try and do some of the Appalachian Trail this summer, but I want to test out my new gear on Florida Trail. I am going to do a long weekend in 2 weeks. I live in Tampa, FL and want to pick it up as close to my house as possible. I was thinking of either hiking section "27/28 Citrus & Croom" and going North, or "29/30 Richloam-Green Swamp West & Green Swamp East" and going South. Has anyone hiked either of these sections before? Any suggestions on which one to do?
