I rode the whole trail twice, and it's my favorite of the Florida Greenway trails. I liked it because there is zero traffic, no crossroads, total peace and quiet. The trail is smooth and shady. Just bring your own supplies; you won't pass any 7-11's.
There is a good BBQ joint right on the trail in Old Town. I can't remember the name, but there is a big pig on the roof--you won't miss it.
I stayed at Otter Springs Campground(just off the trail, in the middle), which I would recommend strongly. They rent cabins or tent/rv sites cheap, allow pets. The Fanning Springs State Park is worth checking out; basically just a big swimming hole, though.
Don't expect any Orlando-style tourist attractions anywhere in the area, just relaxation, if that's what you want.
