We had a great time on this hike, about a four mile loop with great views of this pretty lake. We saw pitcher plants, what a treat.

Enjoy this trail very much with my 5 yo. Plan to start trail-running here when it cools down.

Well marked and travelled. Beautiful views of forest swamp, lake and marsh.

Excellent trail that circumnavigates Bear Lake. Well-maintained and well-marked with white blazes. Features nice longleaf pine forest. Little perceivable elevation change. Has some nice short boardwalks that carry you over the lake's headwaters. Best done in winter to avoid heat and bugs.

Absolutely gorgeous little loop trail around the lake. Lots of birds; cormorants, kingfishers, warblers, woodpeckers, robins, nuthatches, and grebes. There were many recently built boardwalks over the low lying areas, and gravel added to mud prone areas. Many of the roads that lead to the lake have small concrete 'ramps' for aluminum boats and kayaks. Very peaceful (when the navy trainer helos aren't out flying). Part of the Florida Trailwalkers Program.
