6998 Lakeland Highlands Road
Lakeland Highlands Scrub protects the largest remaining contiguous tract of the historic Lakeland Ridge and is home to a small population of red-tailed hawks and palm warblers. Two trails, the 2.2 mile Tortoise Trail and 0.6 mile Shady Oak Trail, move hikers along open dry prairie, pine flatwood, oak hammock and basin swamp habitats. You’ll find sandy trails here, so running is not recommended.
Extend Your Hike
Walking through Lakeland Highlands Scrub takes you to a secondary entrance of Se7en Wetlands Park and can extend your hike for a few miles.
