Hike the Lettuce Lake Regional Park Loop

1.2 Miles Total - 6 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

This short and easily accessible hike is teeming with wildlife and rich with luscious native foliage. Visitor center and play area offer ample opportunities for fun and discovery.

The Lettuce Lake Regional loop is a short and sweet 1.2 mile hike appropriate for all ages. This loop is a great way to get in touch with the Florida scenery and wildlife without having to take a whole lot of time out of your day (though if you have the time you'll likely want to spend more time here!) There is a play area if you want to bring the kids, and a visitor center to gain a more in-depth understanding of the preserve.

Nice little park

It’s a nice little loop, very easy and great for kids.

Exciting For Florida

Short walk. Nice to be in the woods. Well marked and maintained. It's average

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
