Withlacoochee Rails-to-Trails Bike Rides

Withlacoochee State Trail
The longest rails-to-trails in Florida is the  Withlacoochee Trail in Inverness at 46 miles.  We have loaded up the bikes on two occasions and gone for a ride along the trail.  Both times we have started at the trail head in Inverness a short car ride from the RV park.

Ferris Groves - home of fresh strawberry shakes and Florida Fruit

Fresh Strawberry Shake - our
reward for 15 miles on the
bike.
We drove back to Ferris Groves so we
could buy oranges and grapefruit.
Our first ride we headed to the small town of Floral City.  It is a great paved trail and very easy to ride.  We rewarded ourselves with a fresh strawberry shake at Ferris Groves in Floral City.

Our second ride we started at the same rail head in Inverness but rode
the opposite way - about 10 miles roundtrip.  We had lunch
in Inverness before heading back to Rock Crusher.
Stop along the river.
