The ride begins at THE TRAIN STATION restaurant/amusement facility with additional SAG stops at around the Ridge Manor, Istachatta, and Citrus Springs areas. This paved Withlacoochee State Trail winds through Pasco, Hernando and Citrus Counties in West Central Florida. The Trail Head is 2/10 mile north of the Old Historic Courthouse in downtown Inverness.
