Are there any good places to ride in Land O Lakes off SR 54?

I live near you, and the closest trail system is the Wilderness Trials, they consist of Flatwoods, Trout Creek, and Morris Bridge parks. There is and entrance to Flatwoods on Bruce B Downs Blvd. next to Chili's and South of Hunter's Green, and Morris Bridge road south of Cross Creek Blvd. The Trout Creek entrance is on the Northeast side of the intersection of Fletcher and I-75. There are three entrances to the Morris Bridge section. There is one right across the street from the Trout Creek entrance, this is the one that we call "The whole in the Fence". There are two other entrances up further on Morris Bridge Road, just before the road goes over the Hillsborough river.

There are between 25 and 30 miles of trial. Most of it is very flat, and really good for someone who is just getting started.

I live in Grand Oaks and it typically doesn't take much more than about 10-15 minutes to get to "The whole in the fence", so it is very convienant.

Thanks Gregg!

I am off 54 just west of 41.  Thats not so far away, and around 5 I'd be going against traffic!  Not that bad of a deal;-)

Anyone know where to get maps of the area?

You have to be a SWAMPer to view the trail maps posted here on the forum.  $20 Bucks well worth it!!! Have a great 4th!!!

That is true, and it is well worth the 20 bucks, but until then you can access the Wilderness Trail maps for free on the main website.

The membership gives you many benefits, I would encourage you to join.
