South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Kenny

September, 2017 by ken.kentner

Great bike trail! Beautiful ride around lake in the town of Clermont. Nice challenge heading east with lots of rolling hills. Great work out and great scenery! Connects to West Orange Trail so you can ride for miles and miles. Fast or slow it is a very fun and enjoyable ride. One if the best around!

Withlacoochee State Trail

Can be dangerous

July, 2017 by mjbunny

I learned the trail is not patrolled by law enforcement making escape from an attack impossible. My bicycle was destroyed and I was severely beaten by two bearded bicycle riders I never encountered before. Can be a dangerous ride.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Nice and Serene!

July, 2017 by crowculbertson

I parked up at Depot Park and rode down to Rochelle and back. I had entertained parking down at Boulware Springs Park but got there in early morning and for some reason did not feel comfortable leaving my car there (safe?). I found the terrain easier on my return from Rochelle (east) as I could build momentum to climb hills. I then drove to Hawthorne and rode the west end of the trail out and back. The trail is undergoing resurface with fresh asphalt in areas on west side of trail. If they complete this resurface end to end up to Depot Park it will be wonderful. From Depot Park it is somewhat confusing to find the leg out of the park to a connector trail to GHSPT. As I interpret the GHSPT would terminate at Boulware Springs Park with a DT connector up to Depot Park and into downtown. Confusing for me given unfamiliarity of the area. All in all a great ride!

Suncoast Trail

found smoothies

July, 2017 by orthodevil

I'm always looking for food on this trail. I found a great smoothie and wrap place on trail. It is juicy's juice bar. It is right off the trail on Powell.

Archer Braid Trail

Longer than what is shown on the map

July, 2017 by larryvaughn

At the east end, the paved trail continues north to Haile Plantation at SW 46th Ave/Haile Blvd. and east to SW 75th street. Plans are for it to continue through Celebration Pointe, a shopping area next to I-75. That area is under construction now.

Nice straight trail, the part through Haile Plantation is shaded and attractive.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Great Rural Trail

July, 2017 by kipsmith57@yahoo.com

This trail delivers. It is remarkable to have a trail go over 10 miles with only 1 road intersection. surface is in above average condition. the trail is shaded most of the day, except midday when I was there. Turtles, hawks and other animals are a bonus.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

scenic and hilly but too many stops

July, 2017 by kipsmith57@yahoo.com

I got a great workout on this trail but the many stop signs, crossing roads and yield signs took away any sense of relaxation, escape and enjoyment.

Suncoast Trail

Beautiful and relaxing, currently missing it!

July, 2017 by gfili829

I just scored a new bike in Fort Lauderdale and figured I'd post how much I loved riding this trail when I lived in Tampa! Scenic, a decent bit of shade on some of the upper sections, wide enough for multi-use function, and you might even see a couple of horses on your route. We need something like this on the east coast!

Withlacoochee State Trail

withlacoochee trail

July, 2017 by rah168

Great ride! We're training for the Climate Ride in September 2017. The Withlacoochee Trail was part of our miles training. We started at the Lacoochie/Dade City trailhead on day 1. Ended 46 miles later and peddled an additional 2-3 miles to Dunnellon where we stayed for the night. Day 2 peddled back. The trail is wide, debris free, safe, shaded and the restrooms are clean. Floral City is a great half way point for getting water or Gatorade. There is at least one convenience store in Floral. The bike store, Trailside, is essentially on the trail. However, they are not open on Sundays.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Easily one of the best trails in FL

May, 2017 by dlippino

Long, uninterrupted flats. Curvy hills. Bathrooms. Water refilling stops, or convenience stores at either end of the trail. Short side trails that lead to scenic over looks. You can even do repeat hill sets on the climbs near the Boulware parking area. If you've had enough of the trail you can take any of the side country roads for miles and miles and low traffic central FL road biking.

Best done in the morning or the late afternoon, but then again that applies to everything outdoors in Florida.

Dunnellon Trail

Short Easy Trail.

May, 2017 by charliebiking

Hard surface trail. Nice country trail but close to odd house, Estates etc. Nice bridge over looking river. couple of animals. nice and easy hour circle cycle. Well maintained Trail.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

plenty to see along the way

May, 2017 by stefaniespencer

There's always something new to see on the trail...I've seen goats, horses, deer (literally crossing in front of me), turtle, snake, woodpecker, and a hawk. It's nature in all its glory along the trail. There are a couple of hills but nothing crazy, flat ride for the most part.
