I just looked on Google Earth and wasn't able to detect any path even if I went back to older photos. It looks like the original buggy trail followed the old Florida Trail from Loop Rd to Frog Hammock Camp where it then veered east. I don't think it'd be do-able in a day since bushwhacking slows you down. Just doing Gator Hook to Oasis or even Loop Rd to Oasis takes the better part of a day.
Someone got lost on the Gator Hook Trail again. It appears they were rescued just past the center of the "W". http://www.mysuncoast.com/news/state/man-goes-missing-in-fl-preserv... Its very thick in that area and can be confusing. The trail, which follows the old logging tram, will need continuous maintenance to keep from disappearing anywhere past the center.
