Highlands Hammock is a lovely wooded park built by the CCC. It is one of the first state parks in south central Florida, about 4 miles west of Sebring, Florida, off U.S. 27. It has been described as “Old Florida” with lots of wild-life, hiking trails and many miles of bicycle trails in the park, one that connects to a trail into the town of Sebring. Old Florida history continues with the nearby Cracker Trail, the cattle trail with a rich history, the subject of the book, “A Land Remembered” by Patrick Smith. That area of the state offers many activities to explore including air boat rides on Lake Istokpoga and the gardens and carillon at Bok Tower. 

It was brought to our attention that the Region 3 rally is scheduled in Tallahassee the same weekend, but after polling our registrants, a majority told us they didn’t have plans to attend the Region 3 rally so we will leave our rally on the dates as planned. 

Activities during the rally are still in the planning stages and will be announced in future newsletters and in emails to those registered. To keep us all safe we will be observing social distancing and other healthy practices.
