Today we returned so my son could run his final 20 mile run before his marathon. It was like a completely different trail and a pleasure to ride on. The trail was dry and hard packed.
We started around 7 am and encountered only a few ATV's during the first half of the trip. On the return trip, many more ATV's were on the trail but most were courteous and respectful.
There was a convenience store at the halfway point.
Bug spray and sun screen were essential. Mosquitoes were out in force but fortunately the spray we used worked well.
Here is a trail map.

|Great views from the trail.|
|Many turtles, little space.|
|The 19th mile.|
