Although most of the time used as cycling route, these trails are also perfect for inline skating. The General James A. Van Fleet State Trail is a rail trail in Florida, named after General James A. Van Fleet, who was a distinguished combat commander in both World Wars and the Korean War. The complete trail occupies a 29.2-mile (47.0 km) abandoned portion of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad's Florida Western and Northern corridor through Central Florida's Green Swamp area. It goes from here in Mabel to Polk City in the south. The entire 29.2-mile (47.0 km) length of the trail is paved approximately 12-foot (3.7 m) wide and is mostly straight, containing only one slight curve toward the southern end of the trail just north of the Polk City trailhead. It connects with the TECO-Auburndale Trail which allows you to get almost 60 kms to the south.
