This is a pretty rural ride wityh a couple exceptions, a couple miles around Brooksville and a couple miles around Inverness. Passing thru Dunnellon there is the opportunity to get off the bikes, if you have a shopper with you, and check out the shops. After Dunnellon, you get very rural! I have seen fox, alligators, snakes, wild hogs(both 2 & 4 legged).
When you get to Wacahoota Road, it is a sharp right hander, right away you will see the beautifull ancient oaks and canopied road.

On CR 346 after crossing US 441 you will come to CR 225 to Mcintosh, turn right and go to a little jog in the road, just past that on the right stop at the post office, yeah that old frame building sitting next to the barn! It is a working post office over 100 years old. Not open on sunday, but you can peek inside.

Go back out CR 225 to CR 346 and turn right to Cross Creek. You will pass the Yearling restaurant on your right. Great place to eat, but call to check hours, they vary.

Just past the restaurant you will come to Marjorie Kinnan Rawling's Homestead. just as she left it. It is a state park.

This wil take a full day if you do the historic site's and have lunch.
