Description

The Bear-n-Oak Trail is a shady 1.4-mile hike through beautiful mossy live oaks. It winds down to the placid waters of Indian Lake.

This sandy trail also passes through a sandhill being restored with prescribed fire, giving trail visitors a chance to enjoy wildflowers and butterflies. This trail will make you feel like you are in old Florida.
