Trail Description The Florida Greenway offers some interesting riding through a variety of hammocks and open fields. This trailhead/campground is just east of the land bridge over I-75. It's always fun to ride over the interstate. The horses seem to care less that there are thousands of cars and 18 wheelers passing under them. There is a nice day ride going east of the camp. Take your lunch and enjoy the picnic tables at the Santos trail head just off US 27/301/441 (all routes use the same road here.

Campground Most of the camping is primitive, although there are a few places where you can hook up to water and electric. At least, there is potable water from taps from which you can fill your tanks. There are probably a total of about 30 or forty stalls in two separate barns. You need to call Sue Noys at 850-222-8738 to make a reservation and get the combination for the lock on the gate. Note that there are charges for camping and horses (different rates if you tie out or use stalls)

Additional Info
Directions Take exit 341 off I-75 (it's where the Big Daddy Don Garletts drag racing museum is...for you drag racing fans) and head east about two miles to the first signal light. Turn left (north) and go another couple miles until you pass the big Foxtrotter farm on your left. The entrance to the campground is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile on your left, just past a big open field.
