The South Lake Trail, Phase IV is an 8.0 mile long trail that begins at Van Fleet Trail (Withlacoochee State Forest, Sumter County) and ends at Villa City Road (City of Groveland, Lake County).  The project includes a 14 ft paved multi-use trail.  Cattle crossings, pedestrian bridge at SR 50, underpass at CR 33, wetland bridge, and trailheads are also included in the project.

The project is broken into several segments. The first segment is 1.281 miles long from Van Fleet Trail to the Lake/Sumter County line.  FDOT’s schedule shows that appraisals for property needed will begin in September 2020.

The second segment is 1.183 miles long from the Lake/Sumter County line to State Road 50. FDOT’s schedule shows that appraisals for property needed will also begin in September 2020.

The third segment is 5.698 miles long from State Road 50 to Villa City Drive. There is no schedule for property acquisition on this segment.
