Visitors may explore Lake June with volunteer trail guides Brian and Susan Woodworth as they take a leisurely walk on the Tomoka Run Trail through scrubby flatwoods, the edge of a bayhead, and the Florida scrub. This field trip is rated moderate to difficult as visitors may walk down a sugar sand trail through scrub for a distance. Winter migratory birds are now being sighted in addition to the Florida Scrub-jay, woodpeckers, red-shouldered hawks and the Southern bald eagle. Water birds may be observed feeding in the shallows along the lakeshore. The gopher tortoise is sometimes seen foraging at this park. Visitors will drive to the far south end of Daffodil Road and meet at the main entrance at 9:00 a.m. The walk will take approximately one hour to 90 minutes. Visitors are advised to dress for the weather and wear hiking boots, long pants and protective clothing and to bring water, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and snacks. Binoculars, walking sticks, field guides and cameras are useful. As there is very little shade and scrub habitat can become quite hot, Lake June visitors are advised to carry water and to bring cell phones as there are no sources of water, administrative offices, or park rangers on site. Lake June facilities include a picnic pavilion and a solar outhouse. Campers and park visitors may obtain the directions from Highlands Hammock to Lake June at the Ranger Station. Please see Additional Information for participation requirements.
Scheduled walks are subject to change depending on conditions.
