Due to great feedback on this run, this location will now be in the rotation. This paved asphalt trail will, eventually, be connected to our other UTBT location. This section is between Lutz Lake Fern Road and Van Dyke Road, in Lutz, in the northwest area of the County. For more miles, easy to then go north to Hwy 54 on the Suncoast Trail.
