Heading South
« on: September 25, 2010, 07:11:51 PM »
Hey Swampers, I will be heading to your area in a couple of weeks. Can anyone give me an idea as to how the trails are? I will probably spending a lot of time in the Lacoochee/Dade City area and staying in Mulberry on the south side of Lakeland. I know there is a paved trail that goes through the Withlacoochee forest and that is where the Croom trail is at.(I think I have that right) How far down the bike path before you get to the mtn.bike trails and are they accessable from the bike path. What kind of weather have you been having and expect to have in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks in advance. ;D

Trails are great! Expect narrow ridgeline trails that are more technical that you would expect. While in the Mulberry area you have easy access to Carter/Loyce Harp Park, Alafia, and Boyette. Up by Dade City you would be close to Croom, and within and hour or so of Santos. If you have the opportunity I would especially recommend Santos, Carter, Alafia, and Boyette. I could give a guided tour of Boyette, Carter, or Alafia on a Saturday if desired, provided I don't have to work. Shoot me a PM, I live in S. Lakeland about 10 miles from Carter.

Croom and Carter are both great.  If you could only ride one then I'd suggest Carter if you are up for some pretty technical stuf.
