We rode the trail from Panacea at a closed shopping center all the way to St Marks trail. Nice 18 miles one way. The trail was asphalt, great shape and recently mowed edges. Wish Ga had these trails near us. Very impressed!
The trail is now completed through panacea to the ochlockonee bay bridge. In the town of Panacea the trail turns into a sidewalk. But as the trail and sidewalk is new the ride is smooth. 36 of us rode the trail this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed being able to ride all the way from downtown Tallahassee to Sopchoppy without riding on the road. We now have four trails that connect together to make this possible. The capital cascades trail from down town Tallahassee meets up with the St Marks Trail which connects to the coastal trail. The coastal trail takes you all the way to the ochlockonee bay bridge where it meets the Ochlockonee Bay trail.
There are now 17 miles of trail completed. It stops just before Panacea. I would recommend starting early as there is very little shade. The trail is in excellent shape.
Great ride fully paved and smooth and nice views. A couple neat boardwalks over marshy spots. put in at the dollar general in sopchoppy. Ride through the wildlife refuge, past the ochlocknee bay. You do have to cross highway 98 just before the last four miles of it. You will also run out of trail and have to share the road for about 500 ft before it picks back up, then just before mashes sand beach cross the road twice to stay on bike path and once at mashes share the road for about 500 more ft. For this reason alone I would not recommend kids riding with you… unless your confident they are capable …. be very careful crossing highway 98! All in all I did really enjoy this one it’s 12 miles one way. There were portable bathrooms at mashes beach.
I began my ride at the North Trailhead in Tallahassee and ended almost 16 miles at the southern terminus in St. Marks. It was a very hot Labor Day but the trail is almost entirely shaded which provided relief from the sun. The trail is entirely paved, completely flat and well marked. There a few cracks in places that might give you a shake but won't cause you to pop a tire. There are many very small road crossing but I can count on one hand how many cars I encountered on them. The one or two larger road crossings were also very quiet. There are many shaded benches to rest and there are about three or four bathrooms along the trail but I can't comment on their condition.
My only complaint is the lack of scenery, its mostly flanked by small homes, brush and runs next to a residential street for the majority of the trail. St. Marks is a great little place to get something to eat along the river and enjoy a much deserved rest.
Two of us rode on July 16th, 2022. This was our 2nd foray but this time we started at the parking lot on Fleischman Road. A wide packed gravel trail that is just hilly enough. There are a few open areas but 90-95 percent of the trail is shaded. We logged 14.8 miles on our out and back ride and did not go on any side trails - yet. Available toilet facilities were clean and in good repair. We look forward to riding here on our next visit. Do not depend on water fountains as anything can happen at any time. Bring plenty of water if it's summer. The temp when we returned to the car was 100 degrees F in the open parking lot. The shade on most of the trail made it comfortable to ride.
It’s been awhile since riding this trail. I like it though it’s a bit short. Some of the pavement edges are in need of repair and the wooden bridge close to the park end of the trail is closed off because of unsafe conditions. This was also noted by a rider back in February. Maybe some repairs will be done in the near future. Hope so.
Great fun trail. Short up and downs. Crushed stone surface. The erosion control berms were fun. Had 34 & 38 mm tires. Trail under I-10 is the roughest. Total out & back - 14 miles.
We started skating the Sam Atkins park FL trail and after a few hundred yards bridge was closed:(No way to go further. The "temporarily closed sign" looked pretty permanent.
Jan 2022: Parked and started from the St. Marks end of trail and rode to Wakulla (crossing highway 267). Nice wide paved path with some cracking in the surface making for some less than smooth travel. Not severe but enough to give a bit of roughness. As with most rail-to-trails, lots of straight and fairly flat travel. Did see a few deer along through the woods, lots of woods to the sides. A few others trail users were out but was an early morning and coolish temps. Did see one informational panel along trailside. Plenty of rest stop places with benches and a couple nice looking restrooms. When a bit warmer day would ride further.
It was a nice cool Saturday morning. The trails were in great shape. They wind through tall pines and fields of brush. Very nice trails for beginner mountain biking. I would suggest you bring a map as it is easy to get lost as I did. The trails are well worn but do have some sandy areas. The west connector is red clay and runs faster than the other trails. This connector also has some mild hills. It was my first go on these trails but would highly recommend. I will return with my wife in tow for the next go around. Enjoy
We went to the south end of the trail to start our ride. We parked right across from the trail head on the Saint Marks river There’s a little parking lot there that is free during the day but not at night. There are a couple cute little restaurants in the town with outdoor seating and it’s fun to just ride around and look at the old Florida way of life. There are also several parks with restrooms along the water going north and a mini bike trail. Once you start off on the trail, you can go all the way to Tallahassee or do any portion. The trail is very well kept with very little buckling or tree route intrusions etc. it’s all a very nice asphalt trail surface. Mostly it’s shady with an occasional sun break. Lots of little Florida houses and old boats and trees to enjoy along the route. It’s pretty straight so you can go fast or slow. We went on a Thursday and there was very little traffic. It’s much less traveled than the north end of the trail but the whole trail is really really nice. We’ve done the north and the south end. It’s worse a bike ride it’s worth a car ride from Tallahassee down to this trail head
