The WMA’s extended trail of 25.3 miles is one of the longest wooded hikes in the central Florida region. The path first penetrates the heart of Three Lakes WMA, where most of the walking is level, but you may have to wade after heavy rains. Good wildlife viewing opportunities abound, particularly for white-tailed deer and sandhill cranes. After the first 10 miles, the path enters the Prairie Lakes Unit of Three Lakes, which is the longer trail section and an area famous for its number of bald eagle nests. The effects of controlled burns don’t have to be unsightly, as this portrait of a young pine tree at Three Lakes WMA demonstrates.
