As temperatures dip slightly, I've noticed a lot more people out enjoying the excellent fall weather. And why not? This is 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 this fall.
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:
Visit the state parks' website at www.floridastateparks.org/thingstodo/statetrails 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.
