Chain of Lakes Trail

August, 2017 by bluefox1930

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Great Rural Trail

July, 2017 by kipsmith57@yahoo.com

This trail delivers. It is remarkable to have a trail go over 10 miles with only 1 road intersection. surface is in above average condition. the trail is shaded most of the day, except midday when I was there. Turtles, hawks and other animals are a bonus.

Too short. Too ugly. Too bad, it could be better if it connected to something else.

Auburndale TECO Trail

Connects to General James Van Fleet

July, 2017 by brianleesawyer

I rated this as a 4 only because it connects to the Van Fleet trail. It in itself is nothing special but the fact that it connects makes the total length 35 miles. So if you're ready for Straight flat ride of 70 miles that is nice with about 40% shade this is a great ride. Bring lots of water. The trail end has awful water and it's a long way back to the water supply. The trailhead here is also safer than the Van Fleet trailhead in Polk city.

Fort Fraser Trail

My Home Trail

July, 2017 by brianleesawyer

I ride this trail 3-5 times a wk. Starting at the north end: the N trailhead is next to a sheriffs office so it is a little safer. No RR or water there. 1 mile into ride there's acovered bridge. .5 Mi. to spur to a nature preserve (Circle B Bar) The spur is nice for wildlife. One can continue into the reserve with mt bike for terrain. I just ride the .5 spur and then back. After 2.5 miles total there is a trail head (highlands city). RR and water. Across street is Bike shop. The trail goes another 3 mi. to another spur. This one is 2 mi. Then 2 more mi. to Bartow, fl. To trail head Another covered bridge. After bridge is major highway with no easy way to cross and only 100 feet of trail on across hwy. I'd stop at bridge. Good ride. 3.5 stars!

Auburndale TECO Trail

Enjoyable trail

June, 2017 by jekrae

Flat, slightly scenic, quiet. Rode from Myrtle Park to Vanfleet trailhead and back. About 13 miles round trip. Enjoyable ride.

awesome trail

March, 2017 by keithsnyder30

I love taking my bike out to this trail. It's safe and the park service goes above and beyond keeping it up. You'll see lots of wild life and gorgeous scenery. Great for everyone

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Beautiful Setting + Nice Amenities = Great Trail

February, 2017 by endlesspursuit

Wonderful way to spend the day in Kissimmee. Start off with a walk or ride and when it gets warm rent a kayak and paddle along the canopy covered creek. Can't wait for the future segments to be built and the trail connect with the Coast to Coast Connector!

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

Stress the word "lost"

February, 2017 by dhotmire

There is no trail, where there once was a nice one. Years ago I traversed it successfully, but today only a few miles of it are open. Sections were to be worked in a bit at a time, originally. However, when a new section has begun construction other sections are not re-opened. 30 mile sections are shut down for two miles worth of construction. By the time the construction is finished most of us will not be around to enjoy the trail. I'm sure we will all be safer as a result of today's version of messing with nature to "improve" nature is complete. According to projections, the dike will be complete and reopened when sea level has risen above it.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Lots of nature and an easy ride!

January, 2017 by wreinsel

We rode this trail on Friday January 27th from about 10am to 5pm. We started from the Mabel trailhead which is mile 29.5 and there is a restroom there. The main issue on this trail is that there is no water except at the Greenpond trailhead at mile 10. That is where we turned around after refilling our water bottle. There was one other restroom at about mile 20 at the Bay Lake trailhead which was a compostable toilet and there was parking and picnic tables there.

We were not riding for speed but to see the wildlife and there was a lot of nature to see. It was 20 degrees below normal so much chillier than normal with some sun and no wind.

We saw river otters, great blue herons, egrets, ibis, sandhill cranes, cormorants, and hawks from the bridges crossing the water. There were many types of woodpeckers and warblers too. Alligators were also out in the water.

While this sraight and flat trail can be used for speed it is also a great trail for a relaxing day of wildlife watching.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Back to Nature

January, 2017 by jmk355

Beginning in Polk City and riding to the other end and back, there is an abundance of wildlife and vegetation. Only needed one gear but a sharp eye helped a lot to see a number of gators (some fairly large) in the waters along the way. They aren't interested in cyclists fortunately. A super ride to relax and enjoy the beauties of nature. Water is not abundant, but easy to manage if you make good use of the fountains at mm10 in both directs.
