Florida's high point is Britton Hill in the unincorporated town of Lakewood, Florida
in north Walton County. The high point is located in a park (Lakewood Park) along Highway 285.
Directions for much of Florida: Take I-10 to
Highway 331 North (exit 85) in DeFuniak Springs. Continue north on
Highway 331 and make a right on Highway 285. The park is on
the left before you reach the Alabama state line.
|Most information about state high points
have this spot listed as Britton Hill, but at the marker it reads Lakewood Park.
At an elevation of 345 feet, Britton Hill is the lowest
high point among all 50 U.S. states!
||There I was, smoking a cigar and enjoying myself.
I was the only person in the park during my afternoon visit.
It felt so good knowing that I was standing
above everyone in the Sunshine State. From Pensacola to Jacksonville,
from Gainesville to Miami, from Tampa to Titusville, I was above millions of Floridians! :)
||There is a gazebo in the park for picnicing.
Some of my other U.S. state high point visits:
South Dakota High Point
Louisiana High Point
West Virginia High Point
Minnesota High Point.
||This park that includes Britton Hill
is a miniscule slope among rolling hills in the region.
I did capture this pretty view across the
street of an open field and trees.
||There is a hiking trail that begins at the park, making it a
nice outdoor option for those in Walton County.
