Venus Backroad + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
The route begins just north of Fish Eating Creek (7.5 miles north of SR29) on the west side of US27. Take Detjens Dairy Road west/north to CR731. Then west 2.5 miles to Old SR8. Then north to SR70. Then west (turn left) for 300 feet and turn right just before the railroad track and continue north on Old SR8 to US27. Total 22 miles
The scenery is nice with cattle ranches and orange groves. What makes this ride nice is NO traffic and a twisty road.
The pavement is in good condition with some sections recently paved. Lots of curves (for Florida) and roller coaster type hills on the northerly sections.
One public area Platt Ranch and a public wildlife research center, Archbold (on west side of SR8)
