If you’re looking for a great ride in Florida a little northwest of Daytona or southwest of Jacksonville you should consider Florida SR-13. This is a very nice scenic ride with great scenery of the St. Johns river and some old Florida homes. Most of the road is covered by sweeping oaks and there is only one secluded place to stop along the way – Outback Crab Shack – Outback Crab Shack. This ride you can either get to from the South through Hasting, FL. or from the North off of I-295. There is some great riding at the South end of the ride also through the Ocala National Forest.
From the south, SR-13 starts off of SR-207 north of Hastings, FL. From the north, take the SR-13 exit off of I-295. This is not an enjoyable point to start the ride because it’s busy but it will get you to the scenic ride.
Scenery along the way:
You will be able to see views of the St. John’s River most of the way. You will also see numerous old Florida houses and lots of sweeping oaks and shade along the ride.
