Lake Louisa State Park is located in Clermont, FL. With 23 miles of trails over hills and around several lakes it makes for an enjoyable and challenging location for trail running.

While no one will mistake it for North Carolina, the hills throughout the park are a welcome addition to an already great series of trails.
