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.
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 paved trails with exceptional facilities at S Lake; very scenic and enjoyable trail - we plan for the late morning to allow the "pros" to fly through the course double breasted (during the Tour de France), you understand. But mid-day was a great riding time.
If you live in Polk Co and just want to ride without fear of getting hit by a car, then ok….although there are several areas where you have to cross streets and some of them being a little busy and questionable. We started at the south trailhead and once you get passed the homeless camps and run down industrial area, it’s a little better. I didn’t feel safe even though my husband was with me. I would never ride this trail alone. The bridges over the roadways are very steep and if you’re from Florida you might not be used to this kind of elevation. Glad it’s checked off our list but we won’t be back.
My husband and I were really looking forward to riding this trail. The parking area is nice and shaded which is nice to keep your vehicle cooler as opposed to sitting in the direct sun. There’s also restrooms here which is a plus…but if you’re looking to do more than 5 miles, this is not the trail for you. We hopped on our bikes and headed north. The tree canopy was great but just a couple miles up the path we’re huge power lines with NO trees or canopy and not scenic in the slighted.
My husband and I went this weekend, we started in Polk City and rode our bikes north. Very scenic, the entire trail is shaded by a beautiful tree canopy. We saw several hawks, a blue tail skink and gopher tortoise. The air smells so fresh! It was a great ride. We’re definitely going back again soon!
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.
