Excellent trail to bike ride, exercise and see nature at the same time. We had a wonderful day!! Taking care of our health, body and mind. I love it!!
We started at the Floral City trailhead and rode to Croom. 13.5 miles. 27 round trip. All beautiful shaded tree canopy. About 6-7 miles from Floral City right on the trail at Istachatta is a great ice cream and sandwich shop. Would definitely ride again. We saw a deer and wild turkeys.
We enjoyed riding the Starkey trail this afternoon. Nice to see the upgrades to this trail. Still on the boring side but peacefully quiet.
This was fairly non-scenic, as the entire trail is the bike lane on the very active road up and down the peninsula. It’s mid November so very little walkers/runners and fellow bikers, but the road is very busy. There are spots to duck out to public beach access, but they are not rideable. The gulf is gorgeous however. There are a few spots along the way to eat/drink, if you’re interested. Parking at Overlook Park was ample. after the ride. The city
We live in Florida and have driven Hwy 98 for many years, always saying that we should ride this trail. Today was the day. We parked at the sheriffs station as someone had suggested. The trail is a very nice paved path for a very comfortable ride and well taken care of. Lots of shade and a chance to see the area at a slow pace. Lunch at Culver’s after our ride. A beautiful day.
Very much enjoyed riding this trail in Fort Desoto Park. Things to see along the way. Beautiful cooler day in early October.
I had a nice ride today at my first visit to the Fort Fraser Trail. Most of the trail parallels Hwy 98 so I wouldn't call this a deep in the woods nature trail but it is way off the highway so you feel safe. Trail was in excellent shape with only a few blind corners that encourage you to slow down. On this Friday afternoon there was very little pedestrian or bike traffic. Street crossings are well marked with stop signs and even the light poles have some cute motivational quotes printed on signs. Nice touch! I did find a diversion connector trail to the Circle B Bar Reserve. I will definitely go back there and explore some more.
Started at Dunnellon and after several miles turned back. There is absolutely no shade whatsoever and not much to look at as it runs behind homes.
Great workout, amazing views!! Easy to get on the trail from Maximo park. Can sit and enjoy the bay at the endpoint rest-stop and refill your water. Trail could use some talc, but we’ll keep this on our list to enjoy again.
Visiting from Ohio and looking for a trail to roller skate through the Florida wilderness. I thought this would be great but the asphalt looks like it hasn’t been maintained at all in the last 20 years. The portion along Starkey Blvd is maintained but not the 6 miles through the wilderness park. Very disappointing.
In three sections we completed this long trail, outstanding all through with side trips on connecting trails made for some longer rides. Many parts are tree shaded.
To the reviewer moaning about e-bikes you should grow up, stop spreading ridiculous ideas about them and get over yourself. E-bikes are a 40 billion dollar industry which is projected to be a near 120 billion industry by 2030. Florida classifies e-bikes exactly as any other bicycle. They’re not electric “motorcycles”. I find that “regular” cyclists seem to be salty for the sheer fact that there’s now just more bikes on the roads and paved trails which because of their self entitlement they believe are theirs alone. Get a grip, get a life and most importantly make love to the idea of e-bikes because you’re only going to see more of them. I’ve seen people, couples and even families put enjoying trails and riding exactly the same as other cyclists. Go out and enjoy the Pinellas Trail. It’s fun and gets you out of the house.
