Local Hike in Cedar Key

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, Sheryl and I decided to take a hike/bike down one of the local trails. We found this trail by accident as we were exploring some of the back roads of the islands. At one time there was a railroad that ran from the east coast of FL to Ceder Key. The railroad has long since been disbanded.

The city has made a nice walking trail out of the old RR Bed, with informational signs about the plants and seating along the way.

We found a couple of the locals catching some rays.

The trail ends about a 1/2 mile down.

The old trestle pilings still stand as a reminder of what was once here.
It was a fun little hike/bike and we even learned alittle history about the area. After that we rode down to the waterfront for coffee and a slice of homemade Cedar Key Lime Pie.....yummm.
Here at the campground the wifi signal is a little sparse as we are beside a large 5th Wheel which is blocking the signal a bit. So posts maybe a little hang in there and stay tuned for more from our little slice of Paradise.

Kevin, any idea if the new house will be Jeep towable? I think the trail rig/tow vehicle combo is a pretty cool idea.

Yes it will. It'll be well with-in the tow limits.
