Hike the Lake Louisa State Park Trail

Florida Louisa State Park Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

The inviting landscape of Louisa State Park features lakes and beautiful wildflowers.

This trail is accessible to hikers, cyclists, equestrians and dogs. It takes you through open Florida landscape enlivened by wildflowers and also takes you past Dixie and Bear Lakes on the way to the much larger Lake Louisa. The trail is out-and-back, so you can go the whole way or choose do just do a portion if you're looking for a shorter adventure.
