Soldier's Creek Trail
I've been on this trail a bunch of times. There's lots of fun stuff to look at, such as 10-foot-wide trees, mountain-biking ramps that no sane biker would ever use, wild oranges that you can eat, and a gorgeous overlook to Lake Jessup.
- There doesn't seem to be an exact address, but it's very close to 298 Osprey Trl Longwood, FL 32750. Looking at satellite view, there's a baseball field just to the southwest and a parking lot at the southern tip of the baseball field (Type "[masked],[masked]" into Google Maps to see exactly where.) Let's meet at that parking lot.
- There will be two trails adjacent to the parking lot. One is a mountain bike trail where we may have a future mountain biking meetup. The other (across the street on the east side) is a nature trail. The trail we plan on doing is about 4 1/2 miles. If we're hungry for more, I'd guesstimate the other is about 1 1/2 to 2 miles.
- Be aware that to the best of my knowledge, there are no unlocked bathrooms in that area.
- In case you can't find us, I'll be on my cell. (407) 921-0775.
