Length: 21.5 miles (linear)
This segment of the Florida Trail is a roadwalk connector kicking off the south end of Western Corridor, an alternate route around Central Florida from the original thru-trail route, the Eastern Corridor.
Until lands are acquired to ensure a protected corridor around the western side of Lake Tohopekaliga (known locally as “Toho”), the orange blazes follow a series of roads around the eastern side of this enormous lake. Although you’ll walk along Canoe Creek Road for the full extent of the 22 miles, wildlife is abundant. Watch for flocks of sandhills cranes on the open fields of the cattle ranches and sod farms, osprey in the cypress domes, wild turkeys along the retention ponds, and deer near the canals.
