Double Loop at Leroy Percy State Park Professional Review and Guide
"This trek offers two loop hikes from one trailhead at one state park. First, cruise around the shores of Alligator Lake, a cypress-bordered natural body of water, with boardwalks that get you up close to the scene. While walking toward Alligator Lake, note the spring flowing into it. As you stand near the spring, the trail starts to your left. Pass under a wooden archway. Cypress knees rise at your feet while you enter swamplands on a narrow footpath. You began circling the upper end of Alligator Lake in the margin between water-tolerant cypress trees and the bottomland hardwoods. Large oaks rise from drier ground. Vines—including poison ivy—drape over everything."
