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.
The scenery is really good. We completed the ride just before noon and the trail was still very shaded. The pavement is very smooth, making for a very pleasant bike ride.
We stayed at a cabin in Lake Louisa State Park and drove to the winter Gardens trail head on plant Street. Although it was 30 minutes with traffic, we like the vibe of staying in the cabins when we’re biking. Plant Street is perfect because you can get your coffee at Foxtails before you leave, and get your beer at the Crooked can when you get back. We rode to the lake Minneola Trail in Claremont and back. Perfect day.
Visiting the area and had my skates with me so woke up early and hit all the different paths down and back. All in all did just about 20 miles total and only hit each section twice (down & back). Now there are a couple boardwalk sections either made out of wood or those plastic planks so be careful hitting the one with plastic planks when there is morning dew on the ground. Some parts are definitely more scenic than others! Saw deer, alligators, squirrels, and ducks. Maybe next time I’ll get to see a swamp ape too! Also if you decide to start real early before the suns up I recommend getting some type of light with you as some sections can be pretty dark.
Great ride. Mostly shaded with lots of natural habitat to see. Would definitely recommend.
Did the 46 miles and truly enjoyed it. Did it in three different sections. Will do this trail again soon.
We had a great day on this trail. In good shape with considerable shade.
We parked near Winter Garden so we could have a beer and lunch.
We did an easy 30 miles out and back.
Wonderful riding experience through the "real Florida". Trail is in great condition and well marked, with frequent benches and rest areas. Scenic throughout with much wildlife viewing. Bluebird boxes have been placed along the length of the trail and are being well used by the birds. The area along the water near Inverness was a particular highlight, but the entire length of trail is worthwhile for repeated trips.
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.
One of the best non-paved trails in Florida. Yes the trail is rough but no rougher than the C&O Towpath. Lot of wildlife to stop and admirer.
We started at a parking area on Cow Creek Rd and went south and then west to Maytown. I must point out that the Shack View from bike path is extremely underwhelming, but the trail is quiet and rural in this section. The bike trail through this are is in perfect condition at this time. We rode past a private airport with a few planes. There was a trailside stand for refreshments and produce near the Maytown junction. We got in about 25 miles in our round trip and want to return to finish the other legs of the trail. Highly recommended.
Started in Titusville and rode 20 miles yesterday. Found some delicious coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants in downtown Titusville. Rode 30 miles today. Trail flat and sunny if starting in Titusville - wear sunscreen. Will be back in the future.
