I really like this trail. I have risen it twice in the past two weeks. I enjoy using one of the side trails running off of this one. The one I like best links with Circle B reserve.

Feel safe riding your bike or walking, trail runs from Lakeland to Bartow and is really nice and not secluded.

I don't go often but enjoy the trail for walking the dog. You will see many different modes of transportation from feet to recumbent and regular bikes. Some shade, used to be more before FDOT tore down trees during the US 98 widening project. There...More
