After a multi-year, phased opening of the overlook and connecting trails, the facility sees near capacity use every weekend. The facility is perfectly located for bicyclists training on Lake County’s hills. It’s perfect as a starting point or turnaround for those gravel riders looking for 40 mile rides across the North Shore of Apopka.
Runners, hikers, birdwatchers make early morning visits. Families bring picnics or walk the dog. Soon enough, the open fields adjacent to the facility will be turned into commercial or residential developments. The Green Mountain Scenic Overlook and Trailhead will be a welcome “green” getaway for these residents.
