Mar. 21: Kayak the Dora Canal
The Dora Canal is just under a mile of pristine “Old Florida” paddling. It’s well shaded with lots of wildlife. In the 1930s, the most well-known waterway in Lake County was called “the most beautiful mile of water in the world.” Lined with towering cypress trees that are draped with Spanish moss, it is a safe haven for nesting ospreys, herons and egrets. In the 1830s, the canal was not only popular for its natural beauty, but because the mile-long connection linked the two important lakes of Dora and Eustis. Bordering the two lakes are the cities of Eustis, Tavares and Mount Dora. Each city sports its own heritage and quaint downtown district. Depart at 10:30 a.m. Directions: From U.S. Highway 441 to Mount Dora, turn west onto Donnelly St. Take Donnelly St. 1.8 miles to Charles Ave. Turn left on Charles Ave. and follow 0.2 mile to Gilbert Park.
