The trail has excellent wildlife viewing opportunities between Green Pond Road and Bay Lake Road.

Lake Minneola Scenic Trail/Clermont Trail
This is a very pleasant, mostly urban trail, with higher hills than any other rail trail in Florida. Though they’re only on the east end, and don't really require very much effort, they can still produce some fast speeds on the downhills.
Ocala National Forest - The Florida Trail
The trail traverses a range of natural communities including extensive stands of longleaf pines, and scattered communities of sand pines, other short leaf pines, and hardwoods. The trail also skirts open prairies and ponds that are excellent for viewing wildlife.
