Spooky Haunts of the Trails from Venice to Osprey!


CAN YOU FEEL IT? The cool breeze that seems to last all day's Fall in Florida! While Fall in most of the country signifies that much colder temperatures are soon to follow and that white soft fluffy stuff will soon start falling from the sky, here in Florida we relish this time of year as a relief from summer's scorching temperatures and humidity. It's also the PERFECT time for biking, hiking, camping and just about everything else!
