Along the Trilogy Trail
The riding/biking/hiking trail in Ocala's Trilogy Resort was initially planned to be 21 miles in length when completed. But someone pointed out that was not physically possible, so the powers-that-be decided to measure the length of the trail in "furlongs" which is appropriate because horse races are measured in furlongs and this is horse racing country. Furthermore, the Trilogy resort is being built on land that was, at one time, a horse farm.
One furlong equals 1/8th of a mile. Some mornings we ride our bikes 5 miles or more which means we ride 40 plus furlongs. But the Trilogy Resort is just getting started so it is likely that eventually the trail will stretch out to 120 or more furlongs.
This section of the trail is near the entrance gate.
