Written Directions

Go North from Umatilla, FL through Ocala National Forest on Route 19. The road is build just above the wetlands. You can see for miles, and it is particularly pretty in the early morning. There's a place to stop for gas in Salt Spring, otherwise it is mostly deserted. If you have time for a swin, stop by Alexander Spring. It is always gin clear and 72 degrees.

Scenery

A mixture of forest, lakes and wetlands. Mostly undeveloped. This route is popular with local riders particularly Spring and Fall. Notice the old Florida Barge canal beneath the long bridge just north of the national Forest.

Drive Enjoyment

Not many twists and turns on this one, so you can really enjoy the scenery. Newer asphalt has very little wear. Route 310 is the smoothest motorcycle road in the state.

Tourism Opportunities

There is a good BBQ where County route 310 meets route 315.

This was a great ride through the forest. Nice scenery, the roads were in pretty good shape, a little twisty for Florida just not much else going on around there. We did find a great little New England style seafood restaurant we pulled in to to get away from the pouring rain that hit us. It was well worth it. Its called Lena's Sea Food. Its at 18478 E Highway 40, Silver Springs, FL 34488. Look for the big whale on the sign. Happy trails.
