Lake Talquin State Park Trail

14850 Jack Vause Landing Rd.
Tallahassee FL 32310

Lake Talquin is a rarity in Florida due to its sheer size and character. The interpretive trail at Lake Talquin State Park is a 1.2-mile footpath, which is an easy walk for visitors of all ages. The nature trail starts on the south side of the parking lot, leading into a bluff forest of southern magnolia, oaks, and sparkleberry.  This natural trail winds gently through the upland forest, offering a closer look at the steep head ravine system. In 2011, a 1.33-mile spur trail was completed as an Eagle Scout project, by Matt Willis and Scout Troop 114, which leads to a beautiful bluff overlooking Lake Talquin.

Featured Uses: Walking, jogging, bicycling, nature watching, camping, boating, canoeing, and kayaking.
