Flat Island Preserve: Daubenmire Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This 2,300-acre preserve located near Leesburg encompasses two wooded islands (Flat Island and Magnolia Island) and a huge wetland known as the Okahumpka Marsh. Of the two islands, Flat Island is the most accessible place for hiking, with three shaded loop trails created and maintained by the Florida Trail Association. Magnolia Island’s trails and primitive camping are accessible only by boat via the canal system from the Flat Island Boardwalk. Canoe rentals are available if you decide to venture there. Make advance arrangements with the Lake County Water Authority and download a canoe use permit ahead of time."
