Cross Florida Greenway is the #1 hotspot for mountain bikers and trail seekers in the state

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection named October as officially Greenways & Trails Month. It’s a way to encourage Floridians and visitors to check out the many trails offered on state-owned property. The number one-ranked area for visitors looking for “green” recreation is in North Central Florida. WUFT’s Donna Green-Townsend talked with the Regional Manager for the DEP’s Office of Greenways and Trails, Mickey Thomason about why 100-thousand mountain bikers say Marion County has the best trails.
