Snorkeling in Lake Jessup

  • Apr 1, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Soldier's Creek Trail

Now that the weather's warming up, let's take a midweek break, get out our swimsuits, and enjoy the water. A scenic trail, about a mile long connects the parking lot to the lake, so bring your stuff in a bag/backpack. Also, be aware that to the best of my knowledge, there are no unlocked bathrooms in that area.

I've been on this trail a bunch of times. There's lots of fun stuff to look at, such as 10-foot-wide trees, mountain-biking ramps that no sane biker would ever use, excessively sour wild oranges that you can eat, and, of course, a gorgeous overlook to Lake Jessup.

Bring a bag or backpack with:
- Sunscreen
- Bugspray
- Bottle of water
- Snacks. Trail mix, chips, whatever floats your boat.
- Mask/snorkel if you have it
- Underwater camera if you have it
- Towel
- Change of clothes for after the snorkeling

We will probably go out to eat afterward. I'm thinking Burger-Fi (3801 W Lake Mary Blvd, Lake Mary, FL‎), but I'll take suggestions.

      Good point, but no need to worry. Those only happen to smaller lakes and well into the summer. You'll be safe here.

    I don't have any snorkeling gear. Is there somewhere I can rent from?

      I've got an extra snorkel/mask set, so no need to worry about it.

      Sorry, thought I sent an e-mail. I switched the date b/c I happen to have this day off of work, and want to take advantage. Should be enough notice to not cause problems.

    I'll bring the raw chicken for some hors d'oeuvres before the main meals
