Park rangers to lead bicycle ride on South Lake Trail

RELEASE DATE: February 1, 2008

LEESBURG — Lake County's park rangers will guide a bicycle ride on the South Lake Trail on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The ride will begin at the West Orange Trail County Line Station, located at 17914 Old County Road 50 in Winter Garden, and will continue to the intersection of Mohawk Road and Old County Road 50 and then back again. The round trip is about 11 miles. Participants are welcome to continue past Mohawk Road along the Lake Minneola Scenic Trail to Waterfront Park in Clermont, which is an additional 4 miles.

Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing and footwear and need to supply their own bicycles, helmets and refreshments. During the ride, rangers will point out any native plants, butterflies or wildlife that may be present along the South Lake Trail.

Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming response to the park ranger's guided tours, the Parks & Trails Division is limiting the number of participants for these events to 25. Upon request, separate guided tours are available for large groups. The Parks & Trails Division is also seeking any volunteers who may be able to assist park rangers during these events.

To reserve a spot for the bicycle tour, schedule a separate tour or request more information about becoming a volunteer, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at (352) 253-4950 or e-mail parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.
