One of the great things about blogs is the information exchanged between blog writers and readers. On April 18th one of the comments we received from Steve and Joan was about things to do in the Clermont-Winter Garden area. Since these areas are only about 10 miles north of us we decided that today was a good time to get our road bicycles out of the Honda Fit and take them for a spin.
In doing a bit of internet research we found that there is a bicycling trail up in that area called the West Orange Trail. The trail runs from Killarney Station (east of Clermont) to the terminus at Apopka (22 miles each way).

We began at the Killarney Station and headed east thru Oakland, Winter Garden,
We wanted to take a look at the Oakland Nature Preserve, but no bikes are allowed on the trails leading thru the Preserve or on the boardwalk leading toward Lake Apopka, so we decided to pass for now.
A big thanks again to Steve and Joan for pointing us in this direction! We had a very nice ride.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
