The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), is conducting a Corridor Planning Study to evaluate a multi-use trail along the approximately 19-mile section of State Road (S.R.) 19 from County Road (C.R.) 450A to S.R. 40 and the planned Black Bear Scenic Trail. The conceptual alignment also includes a portion of the former Atlantic Coast Line (ACL) railroad, also known as SE 309th Court in Marion County, within the boundaries of the Ocala National Forest.
