Van Fleet Trail Polk City to Mabel FL - worth a detour for?

I'm planning a ride in January from Venice FL to Jacksonville, mostly following the ACA route in central FL and credit card style touring - won't be carrying cooking or sleeping stuff.

One of the days is looking like Auburndale to Mt. Dora and I noticed that if I detoured a bit I could ride on the 29 mile James Van Fleet trail, which seems like a nice isolated paved stretch to mix in.

Any opinions from cyclists in the area? I think it would turn a 65 mile day into a 75 - 80 mile day - worth the extra pedaling?

Thanks, John P.
