Hammock Road Trail

The Hammock Road Trail in Sebring runs along (duh) Hammock Rd. between Highlands Hammock State Park and US 27 at Lake Jackson. It's not necessarily a destination in itself, but it provides a neat pathway between the park and the trail around the lake. The first part of Hammock Road Trail runs along the road leading to Highlands Hammock State Park. The next portion is set off of the road on a paved path through a nice wooded area. The last section is a wide sidewalk path along the road. There are some road crossings, but nothing too major until you reach US 27, with traffic signals and crosswalks. Parking is available at Highlands Hammock State Park (you'll have to pay an entry fee), Max Long Recreational Complex, and at Hammock Rd. and Lakewood Rd.  (Hammock Road Trail continued)
