Croom - out -- Withlacoochee - back by redpoint13 at Garmin Connect - Details

Another good ride today in the Croom, FL area.

Getting a late start ruled out a ride that would capitalize on the whole 32 mile loop. I opted for the a shorter 15 mile option that followed the blue marked trail out then bailed me out to the the Withlacoochee State Trail.

Very much like the Santos ride yesterday this ride crammed as much mileage possible into each acre of land. There seems to be a maximum amount of trail that will fit into an area without feeling contrived and at points parts of the trail felt a little forced. That said, this is a great trail and an extraordinary ride featuring fast corners, big drops and interesting pits.

Thank you SWAMP for maintaining the trail. On note if you use the GPS/Google Map provided by SWAMP it may leave you short of the parking area by a couple miles. Be sure to continue a mile plus after crossing under I-75 just at the crossing of the Withlacoochee State Trail again.
