Now's the perfect time to get outside and do something fun.
Looking for suggestions on where to go? I say head to a state trail. Florida has lots of them and they're all great places to get your feet – or tires – on the ground.
You've probably heard me talking about the Withlacoochee State Trail before. It's in my neck of the woods and it's 46 miles of uninterrupted paved trail where users often see wildlife as they ride for miles in a tranquil Central Florida setting. No wonder cyclists come from near and far to get their miles in here.
Be sure to check out the others too; they're great places to enjoy Florida's great outdoors whether you're on foot on horseback or riding a bicycle. Here's the list:
- Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway
- Blackwater Heritage State Trail
- Florida Keys Overseas
- General James A. Van Fleet State Trail
- Nature Coast State Trail
- Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail
- Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail
- Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic State Trail
Visit the state parks' website at http://www.floridastateparks.org/ for more information and locations on all of these state trails.
Visit them yourself and see why Florida received the Best Trails State in America award in 2008. For more cool places to play check out VISITFLORIDA.com/trails.
