The route continues westwards from US 41 in Dunnellonmarker as County Road 40 to the Gulf of Mexicomarker through Marionmarker and Levymarker Counties north of the Withlacoochee River. The highway bisects the Ocala National Forest (ONF). In addition, it provides access to the Lake George State Forest, Silver River State Park, Cross Florida Greenway and Florida National Scenic Trail. Bridges on SR 40 span the Ocklawaha and St. Johns Rivers. Several small communities are strung along this corridor including Astor, Waldena, and Lynn and Ocklawaha.

A proposed expansion of SR 40 resulted in the State Road 40 Environmental Feasibility Study which reviewed potential impact of improvements to the existing highway while not destryong the natural beauty of the area.

Levy County Road 40 is named Follow That Dream Boulevard west of US 19/98 after the 1962 Elvis Presley movie that was filmed in Yankeetownmarker and the surrounding area.
