near Johnsons Corner, Florida (United States)

I took this hike a while back, so it might have changed a little since then. This short hike will take you down to the edge of Lake Norris, I found that to be a very pretty spot to visit! When I visited the area there was remnants of an old homestead (like many old things in Florida, it is maybe gone). There are three marked trails in the area, totaling a little over 9 miles. It is not a loop, so you might want a couple of vehicles if you want to see all the trails. The SJRWMD had provided a map at http://www.sjrwmd.com/trailguides/pdfs/lakenorristrail.pdf (they do change things, so if not found, search on Lake Norris Conservation Area). Please leave nothing and only take photos and trash! Check out my website for other areas to hike - www.tomchoma.com Happy trails!
