Lots of Wildlife

Great ride. Mostly shaded with lots of natural habitat to see. Would definitely recommend.

Nice trail, fast ride!

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

Began at Green Pond trailhead, mm10. Was surprised to find the lot completely full by 10am on a Monday, but the holiday probably had much to do with this. Was advised they allow overflow parking along the shoulders of the parking lot and trail and I had no issues doing this.

Rode north 19.5 miles to the end at Mabel, then turned around back to Green Pond. Straight as an arrow & flat as a pancake the entire way. Only one real road crossing in that entire stretch. Very scenic throughout, although I thought the section between mm20 to mm25 north of Bay Lake trailhead was the highlight. Plenty of wildlife to keep you entertained.

I experienced none of the surface issues mentioned in other reviews. Some minor tree root bumps, many have been marked. Some filled potholes and a couple new sinkholes that were easy to avoid. I've ridden on much worse. Averaged over 14mph on the entire 39 mile ride & I typically consider anything over 12mph a fast ride.

Lake Jackson Trail

Nice ride

We had a nice leisurely ride around the lake on the sidewalk. Only saw one other person walking, and everybody was courteous enough to stand outside.

Great Out and Back Picturesque Trail

February, 2023 by jrmc21

Great for an out and back ride that is mostly tree covered and few road crossings. Saw a tortoise and a gator and lots of cows. Seems to be a place to sit and rest every few miles. Others say the trail is not in great shape - but for me who does not ride more than 11-12mph, I did not see problems. Did not see any place to refill water bottles.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

The South Sections are Nice Rides, but Trail is not Connected

February, 2023 by jrmc21

When complete, this will be a great trail. But it is in different sections that are not connected. I only did the southern 2 sections on the map. Nice rides on picturesque trails.

This was my first and last visit to this trail. Unfortunately the trail has deteriorated over the years. The tree roots have caused some serious and dangerous conditions to fellow bike riders. Some paint have marked these situations, but not enough to prevent accidents. The trail is so rural and the trailheads are not up to par to other trails in Florida. Sorry to be this negative but some attention to this trail is overdue.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)


January, 2023 by neilgl

We rode the Moore haven East section of the trail from Moore Haven to Clewiston on Sunday January 28, 2023. The 11.5 mile trail (23 mile round trip) is a smooth, very wide , paved trail which follows the top of the elevated dike and provides expansive views of the fields , canals and Lake. There are vehice gates at each end and two near the middle with pedestrian/ bike pass thrus to one side. We parked in a huge, paved parking lot at the Moore Haven damn, suitable for cars, trucks and RV's. What a great bike ride.
