Neptune Road Recreational Pathway

on its way to something good

April, 2024 by sharon_wb

The northern portion is gorgeous with Waterview to the west and a nice ride through beautiful parks. I went a little further and did the regional trail just north of this one and it was absolutely beautiful but very short. The section after the high school heading north is dangerous for unsteady cyclist. The local community is actively working to improve this 3 to 5 mile section of trail Once that is complete the trail will be quite nice. The majority of the trail is a double wide sidewalk, so it is not good for a zone four or five ride. It is perfect for a leisure zone 2 ride. The Northern section is excellent for a family bike ride. On my way back heading south. I avoided the double wide sidewalk and rode the generous bike lane until it ended.

Withlacoochee State Trail

BEAUTY of a Trail!

March, 2024 by nume0112

On Easter, we parked in the Hernando lot and drove south to Floral City, before returning! Scenery ranges from beautiful partially shaded trails, several lakes and waterways, turtles, and alligators. LOTS of potential restaurants for a break (seafood, pizza, ice cream, etc.). We sat on the deck at Stumpknockers (5 blocks off trail) for an horsdoeuvre and bevvy! This portion of the trail was 29 miles round trip. We’ll be back to do the Northern portion!

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

Lots of wildlife

March, 2024 by bannerman

Pick a cloudy day and maybe a mountain bike. Lots of gators and birds. We started from the green mountain trail head and I would start at one of the other trailheads instead. They spent so much on the trail head that there is no money to maintain the trail and the first two miles are extremely rough.

Chain of Lakes Trail

Cute trail

March, 2024 by hitchcock.anita1

This is a short city trail ride but well maintained. There are sections of it which are quite pretty. There are amenities along the way, and with a Dunkin Donuts, 7-11, and a Diner at the trail end.

Leesburg-Wildwood Trail

Stay Away!

March, 2024 by kmdagostino

Very disappointing. Nothing special about the trail itself. the homeless encampment and trash was unsettling. Also many men loitering about. I did not feel safe. So many other nicer places to bike this is just not worth it.

Leesburg-Wildwood Trail

nice, but.....

March, 2024 by slin7

This was nice and level, easy parking at either end, part sun and part shaded (although mostly sun), but you will be passing by a few homeless encampments. No one came out to bother us, but just something to be aware of your surroundings. As an older female rider, I probably wouldn't do this ride again alone. But it was an interesting ride, nonetheless. When we got to the end in downtown Leesburg, there are lots of great places to eat.

Seminole Wekiva Trail

Too much traffic!

February, 2024 by gjprutgers1978

I started this trail at the southern entrance. I got less than 3 miles into my bike ride and turned around. Too many intersections with heavy traffic. Perhaps this trail is better towards the northern end.

Good Neighbor Trail

2/26/23 trail closed BUT…

February, 2024 by crckco

Parked at historic train station. Headed east and after a mile or so found the trail is closed by Duke Energy to update electrical poles. Back to the truck, reloaded our bikes and headed to Mondon Hill Road and parked the truck. Took off for Withlacoochee Trail. On the return ride we spotted a fox squirrel, a hawk having dinner, and a free range chicken. Nice ride!

Orlando Southeast Trail

Great Ride during the Holidays

February, 2024 by jallen1804

I ride this area at least twice a week. The trails are wide & the scenery is pretty good. It is great place to ride at night if you enjoy that. The neighborhood is always well decorated at Christmas.

Hancock Trail

Hill work

February, 2024 by vbellatplay

On our visit to Florida and first time in the saddle in six months we opted for a short day, about 20 miles. We parked at the Copper library which was convenient and had nice bathrooms and water. There are new developments and a shopping complex since the details to this trail were written. At about mile 5 there is a Publix, Starbucks and a few more retail stores. There were a lot of roads to cross and hills to climb. We opted for a 6 mile round trip down the intersecting Lake Shore trail to Minneola Lake. That was a nice, scenic section. Overall a good day to start our season.

Brevard Zoo Linear Park

Florida Ride

February, 2024 by psoukup

Cute little trail. Very smooth with many boardwalks. Perfect short ride after a day at Kennedy Space Center. Blessed with a red shoulder hawk!!!!

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Great Trail

February, 2024 by pdreger

Rode on a cold day but still saw otters and deer. Be careful because Google maps will take you the wrong way. The northern most part of the trail is in Mabel FL off Highway 50. The access road to this point is horrible but short.
