Breaking News: Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive closed indefinitely to vehicular traffic


The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice due to ongoing construction on the property. The Lake Apopka North Shore Loop Trail will remain open for pedestrian traffic.

The St. Johns River Water Management District is currently conducting maintenance at several locations within the Lake Apopka North Shore property, which has closed a portion of both Interceptor and Laughlin roads. Visitors are encouraged to exercise caution in these areas and follow any posted detours.

The Lake Apopka Loop Trail follows the lake’s edge through the property, covering more than 20 miles and providing hiking and biking opportunities. The North Shore property also has a marked white trail suitable for hiking, biking, and horseback riding (6-mile loop) on Clay Island, with four observation towers, including one overlooking the west shoreline of Lake Apopka. You’ll find an additional 2.6 miles of trails (the red trail) for biking, hiking, and horseback riding.
