Biking on Good Neighbor Trail

Brooksville Trailhead to Weatherly Road - 4 miles

Russell St. to Weatherly Rd.

The trail starts at the intersection of Russell and Main Sts. (from where it will eventually link to the Suncoast Trail) and runs 2/10 mile west through Russell Park to the Brooksville Trailhead. From the Trailhead it continues eastbound from Brooksville, the road crossing at US 98 (1/4 mile) being the largest intersection - be very careful. Past here is wooded and mostly away from roads with a few crossings. Past Mondon Hill Road is a power line corridor, and then a fenced-off area past a gun club. The trail emerges from the woods to run parallel to Richbarn Rd. to Weatherly Rd. This ends the first section of trail completed.


Brooksville Trailhead

The trailhead at Russell Street Park in Brooksville has parking, restrooms, picnic tables, a gazebo, and historic exhibits - the 1885 Train Station and the One Room School House. Plans are to relocate other buildings to the site, creating a historic village.


Weatherly Road to Withlacoochee State Trail - 6 miles

Along Richbarn Rd.

The 2nd section of trail completed starts off along Richbarn Road, roadside in sections and with a wooded buffer in others. This section is rural with some road crossings and driveways at private residences. It includes some moderate grades.


Through the Forest

Through Withlacoochee State Forest (Croom Tract) the trail is very remote - straight and with only moderate grades, his is great for long-distance bikers. Bring water. A couple of forest roads cross in this area, as well as the Florida National Scenic Trail. The trail ends at a "T" where it meets the Withlacoochee State Trail.
