The Isle of Pine Preserve is located in southeast Orange County off of Lake Mary Jane Rd and is managed by the Orange County Environmental Protection Division.The east Entrance does not currently meet up with the West entrance trails.Unlike the other trails this one is separate & located on Lake Mary Jane Rd. 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. 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.

A lot of bush fires have burnt foliage here and all the marked signposts have been knocked down. The “lake view” is pretty mediocre at best!

Trail is washed out in many places, you will bush whack with snakes and alligators. One semi clear view of the Lake.

Nice little walk. One end of the trail is confusing. It indicates you can keep going straight. Going strait leads to a lot of mud! Saw lots of tracks in the mud. Lots of signs of boar. So I shouldn't have been surprised when I saw one. To bad I didn't get a good pic of it.
