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. This trail has several access points as it is all in the center of Blue trail.

This trail apparently doesn't get used much. There were a lot of small pieces of old branches I kept tripping on. It didn't show any current usage by people but I saw some deer & boar tracks. I even saw an animal trail that went off from red looking like a Boar had gone through it.
