Hammock Road Trail Description

The Hammock Road Trail parallels its namesake from Highlands Hammock State Park to Lake Jackson, allowing Sebring residents easy access between two of the city's natural treasures. The state park features miles of additional trails through lush forests and the lake offers opportunities to boat, fish and swim.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Highlands Hammock State Park, Max Long Recreational Complex, and at Hammock Road and Lakewood Road.

Hammock Road Trail Reviews

This trail is a great connector between Highlands Hammock State Park and the Lake Jackson Trail. Asphalt is very good.

The city ballfields just south of the YMCA on Lakewood Drive have plenty of great parking, and is also very convenient if you've planning to do the Lake Jackson Trail.

This trail is good for moving between Highland Hammock State Park and Lake Jackson. For the first few miles on the western end, the trail winds through pine trees. As you move east, things move from woods to suburbs and you are soon crossing numerous streets. There are actually stop signs on the trail for every one of the numerous street intersections. At the larger intersections there are pedestrian signals. Traffic seemed surprisingly cognizant of cyclers and would frequently hold at stop signs so we could pass.

The ride in Highland Hammock is really nice and the ride around Lake Jackson is good too, so this trail that connects the two is definitely appreciated, even if not a destination on its own.
