Split Oak Forest Wildlife and Environmental Area Trails
More than seven miles of marked trails lead visitors through a variety of natural communities. The North and South Loops take you through uplands, the Swamp Trail features a hike through a freshwater marsh, and along the Lake Loop you will have the opportunity to observe the lake fringe habitats of Lake Hart and Bonnet Pond. While you are on the area, be sure to visit the namesake of Split Oak Forest, a spectacular 200 year-old live oak tree that was split down the middle and survived! Horseback riding is available only by permit through Orange County (407) 273-2327. Permits are issued on Saturdays only, with no more than 10 available each Saturday.
