Trail Information


Road 16 is located in Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area which consists of almost 55,000 acres in Osceola County. Three Lakes gets its name because there are three lakes: Kissimmee, Jackson, and Marian. Lake Kissimmee is the largest lake in this WMA. Both Lake Kissimmee and Lake Marian have Observation Towers overseeing the water. Road 16 is a very flat road since Three Lakes WMA is located in a swamp. Road 16 is well maintained and easy scenic trail moving through woods and wet prairies. While driving on Road 16 drivers will see deer, quail, and plenty of other birds thriving in this WMA. At the end of Road 16, there is an Observation Tower that is well worth visiting and is home to a few Bald Eagles.

A scenic trail through what seems to be similar to swamp land in my opinion. Definitely wildlife to see. If you take a little side trail to the boat ramp its a nice place for a little break in a covered area above the water.

Road 16 is a decent scenic trail, but the biggest highlight is the observation tower! There were 3-4 Bald Eagles chilling at the tower but eventually flew away as we made our accent. Lake Marian has two towers; one a hike off Road 16 and the other is farther away and must be access from FL-523.
