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.

Florida High Point

Britton Hill

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!

Florida High Point 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! :)

Lakewood Park 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.
  • Lakewood, Florida 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.
    Trail There is a hiking trail that begins at the park, making it a nice outdoor option for those in Walton County.

    I was staying at a motel near the airport in Jacksonville, and with a car rental and nothing to do, I opted to drive 310 miles (each way) to the western Florida panhandle to reach Britton Hill.

    Adjacent are three pictures on Interstate 10 including a Tallahassee water tower (left), the DeFuniak Springs exit sign (right) and a photo as I cruised west on I-10 (bottom).

    Chinese Restaurant After visiting the high point, I dined at Gao's Chinese Buffet in Florala, Alabama. This is located close to Florida's high point at the junction of Highway 331 and Alabama state highway 54. The food was decent and the prices were reasonable; It was a great place to celebrate reaching the Florida's high point! :)
