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 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. 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. You have to go through blue trail to get to the orange trail.

Mainly white sand. The south side of the orange trail was too swampy to get to. After three big puddles, the fourth became a lake. - Detoured onto the White Trail for the only real trail that wasn’t sand.
