Great surface, excellent ride. Shade for most of the way.
We rode this trail on Nov 18, 2022 on a perfect 65 degree day. It's true there is no shade so something to consider if really hot. It was amazing to us: we are from AZ and old (76) and used our pedal assist ebikes. We usually ride paved or asphalt and this was a well packed dirt road and was no problem. There was so much to look at did not even think about the few bumps. We parked at Magnolia Park Trailhead. I read this used to be closed but open now-a beautiful park and great bathrooms. We only did about 8 miles up and then back-so much to look at. Saw 10 alligators sunning themselves a few feet from the path, 2 bald eagles, 2 turtles and many ducks and different birds. At the old pumphouse? maybe 5 or 6 miles in there are two shaded picnic tables. I would do again and again. The lady at Spin City cycles in Apopka told me sometimes you can 100 alligators. They do cross the trail apparently at times heading to the marshy wetlands on the other side of the trail. Trail is elevated like on a levee but not much above the lake.
The trail varies from south to north. The southern end from the Upper Tampa Bay Trailhead is flat, with open space, woods to the west, and the toll road to the east. In this section, the toll road is not buffered, so it is noisier and in places very close to the trail. As you go north there are more trees and a larger gap to the toll road quieting down the ride. Once you are north of Anderson Snow Park, the trail has a rolling terrain. From SpringHill drive to the end at 98 and back, I had 1,200 feet of gain. From Anderson Snow to the southern end in back, much less.
I did a few trails did about 16 miles today on and off the paved trail. Spotted a couple deer!
Overall, it is a very nice trail that winds through Minneola and Clermont. Very nice connecting trail to West Orange and Groveland that is only a mile from its end. Would like to see an extension towards Groveland as there is not even a sidewalk to go with SR50 in some portions for around half a mile. It would also be nice to see the trail get extended towards the Van Fleet trail as a connector between these two trails. Also, I do really like and appreciate the mileage markers that are present on this trail as well as the Hancock Trail. I know that West Orange does have Mile Markers, but it is done way nicer on these two trails as nice full posts that aren’t just yellow markers.
A Sunny trail that’s great for training on Hills. Trail is partially lit and fully paved.
This is one of the best trails in Tampa. This is my review of the paved trail. The unique feature about this trail is that you can make it as long as you want because it's a circle. In addition to water stations, smooth pavement, restrooms, park ranger security, wildlife, parking, no vehicles, no traffic lights and it's Flat ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
The trail is not that good anymore,building houses next to the trail,dirty,I remember it so different! Also the way to the Lake Apopka was closed and I came a long way with my dog ,because,the beautiful James van fleet trail,Groveland is temporary closed because of the hurricane IAN !!
This trail is my favorite; it's wide and smooth and well-maintained. The scenery is fabulous and there are enough stopping and turn-around points along the way that I can vary the distance of my ride as frequently as I'd like while still riding the same trail. The trail is well used but never overly crowded; I feel quite safe on it even riding alone at night or in the very early mornings. In addition to the scenery, you may see some interesting wildlife as well. I have seen bears, foxes, alligators, snakes, and turtles crossing the path!
It would be great to have one or two rating areas… picnic like stations. We enjoyed walking the trail! I’ll come back with my bike!
The De León Springs trailhead is nonexistent so we started from the post office. About 3.8 miles of the 14 miles to Blue Springs is on the road. Traffic was generally polite and safe. There are 2 busy street crossings. Route markings aren’t the greatest so this app is you friend. There are enough rolling hills to get your heart rate up a little. All in all a very enjoyable ride.
I ride this trail often but what is listed is not accurate. For instance, there is not trail/road that connect the hunters creek path to Osceolla. That path has not been built yet. Eventually all of these paths will connect but that is several years away. That being said, it’s a wonderfully great trail but the longest segment is only about 7 miles. The future will be great. Just be aware as you plan your ride.
