Isle of Pine Preserve: Orange Trail is a 1.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Orlando, Florida that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from January until January. Horses are also able to use this trail.
The Isle of Pine Preserve is located in southeast Orange County off of Lacebark Pine Rd and is managed by the Orange County Environmental Protection Division You have to go through blue trail to get to the orange trail. This is another of the Green Place preserves created by Orange County. The preserve is reported to consist of 464 acres and was formally known as Hampton Bay. It was originally part of a Florida Homestead before developers purchased it. In turn Orange County purchased it from the developers and created Isle of Pine Preserve. It is bordered on the West by Lake Mary Jane as well as a canal, and on the other three sides by private property. All surrounding property is private and very well protected, so don't cross any fences. I know that Desert Ranch owns much of the adjourning property and they do not take kindly to trespassers. Orange County Moss Park is just across Lake Mary Jane. Because much of the preserve is wetlands, there are two access points, one at the end of Lake Mary Jane Road and the other at the end of Lace Bark Pine Drive. Parking is provided at both locations more details about that later.
