Ascent Trip Report

Parked at new subdivision across from Dudley Street and then walked on down Lake Street to then found an abandoned house under construction and walked to shoreline and touched water of Lake Ola and made that my starting TH. I then retraced my steps back up Lake Street and past the historic post office and Inn along Lake Street to Dudley, headed west and found Allen Street. Heading north on Allen there is an abandoned subdivision attempt on the right where the roads were constructed with curb and base but no asphalt and no homes constructed. The winding abandoned road cuts the true hill top in half. Someday homes will be built here but for now...abandoned foreclosed project. Headed back to car. Allen winds around on a ridge that divides the watershed and crosses the col of the HP on the way to Mount Dora.

I will have to do this again from an alternate route sometime and instead park at the public park within the City of Mount Dora down by Dora Lake sometime this winter and hike up from the edge of Dora Lake to the mighty summit top of Tangerine Hill for exercise as it is about a 4 mile round trip nice walk with some hilly interesting terrain (keep in mind when I say interesting, I mean at the "Florida" level interest....Floridians crave any hill interesting as we can find few to hike onin this ridiculously flat state. Crazy place to live as a peakbagger).
