Join us on an early morning hike at Circle B Bar Reserve. The Circle B Bar Reserve, on the northwest shore of Lake Hancock, is a former cattle ranch that today boasts a wide variety of plants and animals. You can see several distinct ecosystems in this reserve of only 1,267 acres. You’re almost guaranteed to see alligators in Lake Hancock, often considered the headwaters of the Peace River, which flows more than 100 miles from Polk County southwest to the Gulf of Mexico. This is a great 4-6-mile hike that will take you through Florida’s pristine, untouched ecosystem. Our guide will be pointing out the Flora and Fauna of the area along the way. This is a great area of Florida for bird watching and locating other native wildlife.

This is a back-country trail that has some uneven terrain and narrow paths. Due to park rules, NO DOGS are allowed on this hike!
