State parks providing free facilities for cyclists walkers skaters etc is commendable. At 66 years of age it has to be flat. This trail was as close to perfect as you would want. Excellent parking at the entrance. Well signed. My bike computer failed but that made no difference because there were mile markers all the way. My wife and I loved it. My lifetime best was 22 mikes but I exceeded that my 3 miles. Saw alligator deer and turtles en route. Usually flat can mean uninteresting but the swamps provided a lovely backdrop. Yes it's rural. I stopped at the first toilet less than 1 mile in and a ranger was there. Very friendly and I asked him about snakes. He confirmed that they do venture out for a sunbathe in the afternoon but provided you steered clear there shouldn't be a problem. Never saw one. I wish we were adventurous enough to complete the 29 miles but let's face it we are geezers. Our friends suggested we were nuts. When you consider our forefathers crossed rugged ground in a covered Waggon our adventure on flat paved roads pales into insignificance. A really enjoyable day out. Was my bum sore at the end. Yes was it worth it absolutely.
