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:
- Bottle of water
- Snacks. Trail mix, chips, whatever floats your boat.
- Mask/snorkel if you have it
- Underwater camera if you have it
- 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.
