Ozello Trail

Since the weather was so great last weekend, Terry and I decided to take a Nature Coast road trip.

My first drive on the Ozello Trail was probably over 30 years ago.  An acquaintance had  recommended going to Peck’s Old Port Cove for seafood.  Since that visit, very little has changed on the drive.  Just north of Homosassa Springs, the 9-mile road is full of curves and goes through oak hammocks and salt marshes.  Great views and a fun drive–especially if you have a little red sports car!

Located at the very end of the trail, the Ozello Community Park includes several picnic tables and a boat ramp.

Peck’s Old Port Cove continues to be a popular restaurant on the trail.  While we didn’t eat lunch there this time, we have often brought out-of-state visitors for the drive, the food, and the view:
