The St. Johns River Water Management District will close the Lake Apopka North Shore Loop Trail from Magnolia Park to Conrad Road beginning June 5th until further notice due to construction in the area. Visitors are encouraged to use the entrance located at Lust Road.

The Lake Apopka Loop Trail follows the lake’s edge through the property, covering more than 20 miles and providing hiking and biking opportunities. There are four trailheads for the Loop Trail, with restrooms at the Green Mountain, North Shore/McDonald Canal boat ramp, Magnolia Park trailheads, and port-a-lets at the historic pump house. No drinking water is provided along the trail.

Construction will not impact the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, which will be open during regular business hours from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays.
