||[Aug. 24th, 2006|02:00 pm]
This Saturday, Team Awesome is going to check out a new (to us) trail--Carter Road in Lakeland. We're leaving the house at 6:30AM, so we hope to be there around 7:30-8:00AM. If you want to join us, please leave a message, so we know to look for you!|
Here's a map of the trail, and here are the directions:
Take I-4 to the Polk Parkway. Get off at South Florida Ave. (exit 6) and head south approx. 4 miles to Carter Road which will be on your left by Walmart. Head east on Carter Road; Carter Road Park entrance on right 1/4 mile. From Hwy 60, head north on HWY 37 in Mulberry. Carter Road is approximately 5 miles on your right by Walmart. Park entrance 1/4 mile east.
Also, a brief description of the trail:
Trail Description Carter Road Park Trail is approximately 8 miles in length. The trail is built on old phosphate land offering something for everyone from beginners to advanced riders. The trail meanders around scenic lakes up and down ridges with numerous wildlife encounters. Watch out for the notorious 14 foot gator known to the locals as "Big Mamma".
For more information, see the Ridge Riders' Web site.
I will be updating our profile to include this map.
We'll do Croom #1 this Sunday.
