Lake Jesup Park trail consists of two loop trails located near Sanford, Florida on the north-west shore of lake Jesup and is rated as moderate. The North loop is just under 2 miles and the South loop is 2.5. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail. Majestic palm trees and a chance to see gators, snakes, spiders and other critters. It's mostly shaded, so it won't get too hot, but it may be very wet after a rain.
It's gorgeous by the parking area. There are several huge oak trees dripping with Spanish moss.
Once you get past the first bit of the trail it gets so much better. For a good part of it you're up on a ridge among palm trees overlooking the grassy marsh.
I don't think it's used much anymore as bits of the trail are hard to distinguish.
Definitely wear bug spray as it's marshy.
Some parts of this trail are pretty nice, however be prepared to get your feet wet during a rainy season, most of the trail can be flooded...this is wetlands after all.
