Lake Louisa State Park
Waterfront Park is located along Lake Minneola, between East Avenue and Eighth Street. A fitness trail that is part of a 30-mile system, and will be part of the coast-to-coast trail, runs through the park and provides a great path for running, walking and jogging. It connects to the West Orange Trail via a great shaded bike path.
October 2022 Update: The Clay Trail is currently closed due to construction on Wellness Way. Check back periodically for new information.
The Clermont Clay Trail is a 10 mile loop on back roads with rolling hills, with a few steep ones, help to provide variety. Expect great views the entire way. This trail is a favorite of local triathletes and running groups, but it’s good for all visitors who want to enjoy the softer surface.
The natural theme park of Lake Louisa State Park showcases a diversity of wildlife, including deer, bobcat, gopher tortoises, fox squirrel and flighted creatures like bald eagles and osprey.
Running and bicycling is popular on the park’s seven miles of paved roads over rolling hills and on the 20 miles of unpaved multi-use trails.
