The return portion of the loop skirts the lakefront in several places, making for lovely views. Bring water and bug spray. After the hike, we can have breakfast at the Townhouse Restaurant in Oviedo. No pets, please.

    Shijian, I'm so sorry you missed us. I did post directions here because we originally had a map that was incorrect. I hope you join us some other time. The posted phone was my home phone.

    Great hike and breakfast, thanks again Joan. Afterwards did 17.0 miles on the Cross Seminole, then rain persuaded me to wait on adding off-road miles.

    I got there. But the address provided led us to a private property in the forest. Called the leader, nobody answered the phone.

      It's 1.1 miles due east of 426 on SR 46. There is a brown sign to direct you.

    To carpool, don't post phone or address. Contact each other to get this info so it is not on the website for your protection.

    Just as a reminder, there will be bugs (in pre-hiking, I've brought home mosquito bites, a tick, and chigger bites), so please bring BUG SPRAY as well as plenty of water. On the bright side, on last night's pre-hike I did see a vanilla plant in bloom and lots of deer tracks.

    I can carpool from Winter Park area, it would be nice so I do not get lost myself lol I can fit 4 total but that means 3 in the back seat .. so 3 comfortably.

    August 19, 2013

    • Shawn SJ D.

      I would like to join you if there are still seats available. Two people. Where can we find you in Winter Park?

    Chip Cantley just informed me that the clickable map is wrong, and he's correct. If you take SR 426 from Oviedo to SR 46, turn RIGHT at the intersection of SR 426 and SR 46. Continute one mile on SR 46. Lake Proctor Wilderness will be on your left. Watch carefully because the hanging sign is easy to miss.

    • Carl A.

      I corrected the map. Your directions are correct: from the traffic light at the intersection of SR46 & SR426 in Geneva, go east on SR46 about 1 mile, entrance is on your left.

    I've been doing a little pre-hiking at Lake Proctor. It looks like some of the fall wildflowers might be in bloom by the 24th: they're full of buds now. Given that there's more water on the property again, there are plenty of mosquitos out there. Please bring bug spray. If you haven't hiked with me before, please be aware that the hike will be S-L-O-W!

    Will be bringing my bicycle for some after breakfast riding, if anyone's interested in joining.
