[ft-l] looking for a good weekend hike



John,
In answer to your questions:
1.  The trail is not complete from Santos to the Baseline Paved trail, so
some road walk is necessary in that section.  The FT connects to the
Marshall Swamp trail, so there is a trail from the intersection of CR35
(Baseline Rd. and CR464 (Maricamp Rd.) The Marshall Swamp Trail continues to
CR 314 (Sharps Ferry Road).  There is not yet a connector from there to the
FT in Ocala NF. There is a proposed route but I do not thing that
construction is started.

2.  The trail has been extended from SR 200 and is complete to the Pruitt
Trailhead, 5.2 miles west of SR200. That is about adjacent to (South of) the
Dunnellon Airport.   There is only road walk from there to the Withlacoochee
Rail-Trail.

If you have other questions about that Section, please contace me.
