Nice nature trail for a casual hike or bike ride. Some wildlife and beautiful foliage. Saw some gators in the water close by but at a safe distance.

If you enjoy nature trails, boating, or camping you will love Trimble Park. Beautiful oak trees shade the nature trails to the boardwalks. The campgrounds are purposefully kept small to avoid overcrowding. Surrounding lakes keep this beautiful place cooler in the Summer, and covered picnic...More

Had such a nice time walking along the grounds at this park. It was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. It was surprisingly empty which made it feel like our own secret place!

Trimble park was nice. You could walk on the boardwalk and see all kinds of animals in Lake Dora. We saw different types of cards and an alligator. What we didn’t like was the moss hanging from the trees. That kind of gross this out.

Great place to come for short walk with dogs. Other reviews mentioned Nature trail was hard to find so had to wander a bit following their directions to find the start. Finally found a park map as I was leaving. Included in this review. Nature...More

Near to Mount Dora, but definitely off the radar, Trimble Park offers scenic views of Lake Beauclair and Lake Carlton. A great boardwalk has benches for watching the wildlife on Lake Carlton. This is a wonderful place for a picnic, a hike or camping; and...More
