Hiking Ocala National Forest

We're done! Today, we reached the Rodman Trailhead, the end of our treks in the Ocala National Forest. We have hiked more than 115 miles of combined trails along the Florida National Scenic Trail and other trails within the forest this winter. We biked another 19.6 miles in the forest. The pic is of co-author Susan Young (right) and our dedicated shuttle driver Bobbie Tartaglino (left) at the end of the trail.

Thanks to them and all of our fellow hikers and bikers we met along the trails.

The book describing all of these trails should be out by the fall of 2011. We'll keep you posted, right here!

Florida Trail - Ocala National Forest

As we continue our treks through the Ocala National Forest, we encountered this interesting sign near the Eaton Creek Parking Area, just off Route 314. Seems we have to worry about a variety of critters in this area including, bear, deer, horses and people. Wow, this is dangerous work, but somebody has to do it!!!

We're about 85% done with our research on all of the hiking and biking trails of the Ocala National Forest. We'll be done with our research by the end of March if all goes well. The book will be out in time for the Snowbirds to buy it in October of this year. we'll keep you up to date at:
