Palatlakaha Run Paddling Trail
As the longest trail in the Lake County Blueways Program, the Palatlakaha Run traverses seven bodies of water: Lake Minneola, Lake Minnehaha, Lake Louisa, Lake Susan, Lake Palatlakaha, Lake Hiawatha and the Palatlakaha River. These lakes help form the 17-lake Clermont Chain. Highlights of the Palatlakaha Run include two protected areas in the Lake Louisa State Park and Crooked River Preserve. Other entry points include Palatlakaha Park, located north of Lake Louisa, and the Clermont Boat Ramp, located on Lake Minneola. Lake Louisa State Park offers an assortment of activities including full-facility camping, equestrian trails, fishing, nature trails and swimming. In addition, private cabin accommodations, overlooking beautiful Lake Dixie are available and offer two bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen and dining/living room area.
