Recreational opportunities on Newnans Lake State Forest are under development. A 1-mile hiking trail was recently opened, giving visitors a glimpse of things to come. This trail, called the West Trail, will become part of Florida’s State Forest Trailwalker Program. The parking area for this hiking trail is on the west side of State Road 26. Now that the hiking trail has been completed, an off-road bike trail is under construction. This 5-mile bike trail will provide a leisurely ride trough hardwood and pine forests leading to views of Newnans Lake. A second hiking trail is also planned to begin at a mixed-use trailhead on the east side of State Road 26 and will offer hikers an opportunity to view Newnans Lake. Signage and a wooden fence will identify the parking area for these two trails.
