Description

The Lake Arbuckle Trail in the Avon Park Air Force Range provides a weekend backpacking loop through typical Central Florida terrain, a mixture of pine palmetto flatland, oak and hardwood hammock, commercial pine plantations and sand pine scrub. Wildlife, especially waterfowl, is abundant. You may see osprey, sandhill cranes, eagles and the distinctively marked Audubon’s caracara. The trail passes Fort Arbuckle, an historic site.

Avon Park is an active military range. This trail is near an active bombing area. Do not leave the trail.
