The Fort Fraser Trail is 7.75-mile long, and runs parallel to U.S. Highway 98 from State Highway 60 (Van Fleet Parkway) in Bartow to County Road 540 (Winter Lake Road) just beyond the PCC/USF campus in Lakeland. Hundreds of walkers, joggers, in-line skaters, bicyclists and others enjoy the trail each day. The trail is off-limits to motorized vehicles. Although the Fort Fraser Trail is open along its entire length, it remains a work in progress. Planting of trees and laying of sod in places along the trail is ongoing. Signs are in place with historical, geographical, cultural, and natural information about the region. Smaller round signs have proverbs, quotes and humor from various sources. Road crossing signs look like rail road crossing signs. Mile markers tell how far it is from the trail hub in Highland City. The trail does continue for a short distance south of SR 60 in Bartow, after a detour to cross the six lanes of SR 60 at a traffic light at Van Fleet Drive. These photos were taken in June 2011.
