Hike down a sugar sand trail or along the entrance road to observe Florida scrub-jays.  Walk down to the lake shore to observe Florida’s fabulous water birds. 

Visitors are advised to dress for the weather and wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes and protective clothing.  Additionally, visitors are advised to bring water and snacks, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and insect repellent.  Water is essential as there are no sources of water at Lake June.  Visitors should be aware that there is very little shade in scrub habitat which can become quite hot, and walking in sugar sand can be difficult.  Walking sticks are helpful and binoculars, field guides and cameras are welcome. 

Lake June is located at the far south end of Daffodil Road in Lake Placid.  Facilities are limited and there is no administrative office at this park.  To speak with park staff, visitors may call the Ranger Station at (863) 386-6094 at Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring.

Additional Information:

Scheduled walks are subject to change depending on conditions.  Visitors are advised to check with the Ranger Station at Highlands Hammock State Park before preceding to the park. There are no drinking fountains or sources of water at Lake June, so visitors are advised to bring water with them.  Florida State Parks are in various stages of accessibility.  To learn more about the participation requirements for this activity, please see the EEC RANGER - LED NATURE WALKS LAKE JUNE
