We rode this path from a beach park on south Hutchinson Island to downtown Vero Beach. It was a big ride for us 8 miles one way. Lunch and a drink made it worth the trip. It was mid July and a bit hot. A nice quiet afternoon. We will do it again in the Fall
I have done this trail first thing in the morning it does stay pretty busy. It is 2 miles each way. You have a choice of dirty or pavement. Nice trail on a relatively busy street with wild life and a resturants to the opposite side.
The first time we rode the trail we started at Torrey Island campground & headed south for about 10 miles .. it is paved with several gates to go around. The second time we started at Canal Point & went north . The trail is gravel & some parts are very tough. I wouldn’t do it again . We went about 10 miles to Port Mayaca damn. The trail ended & we could see it on the other side of the damn but seemed the only way to get there was to go out onto the highway. We opted not to & turned back. The third time we started at the Port Mayaca trailhead & headed north for 13 miles . All paved & a very nice ride . There are no w port Mayac
We had a nice leisurely ride around the lake on the sidewalk. Only saw one other person walking, and everybody was courteous enough to stand outside.
We rode the Moore haven East section of the trail from Moore Haven to Clewiston on Sunday January 28, 2023. The 11.5 mile trail (23 mile round trip) is a smooth, very wide , paved trail which follows the top of the elevated dike and provides expansive views of the fields , canals and Lake. There are vehice gates at each end and two near the middle with pedestrian/ bike pass thrus to one side. We parked in a huge, paved parking lot at the Moore Haven damn, suitable for cars, trucks and RV's. What a great bike ride.
This is actually a very small slice of the famous Florida Trail/Eastern Continental Trail :)
We rode this on our Ebikes 12/22/2022. The Jungle parking lot and restrooms were open as was the parking lot for the Pelican Island Nature Walk. The road is wide and hard packed sand. Pretty smooth overall. Great jungle scenery. Even though you are on a populated barrier island it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. Then part of the road runs along the channel inlet and past gorgeous houses and boats. We rode the whole 8 miles then caught the A1A road back up to the trailhead parking lot. Fun to do once for sure.
We arrived with high expectations but found the trail disappointing. We started at the Center St. intersection on the east side of the lake and headed north. As other reviewers noted the trail is a sidewalk. Using the road instead would have been our choice but there was no shoulder to speak of, too much traffic and the road curves and winds around the lake at that area of the trail which made it a dangerous option.
That part of the trail though is the most pleasant section. We took our time and checked out the lovely homes.
Just south of the parking area on the west side of the lake though, the trail becomes the adjoining sidewalk for US Hwy 27, a high traffic, commercial road. Very noisy, suffocating, and essentially-horrible. That section of the trail is about a third of the entire loop around the lake. The trail returned to a residential area at the southern tip of the loop. Here we encountered three wheeler bikes and more pedestrians than on the rest of the loop. Along with waiting at traffic lights there was a lot of stop and go as a result. We live in Florida and are always looking for quiet, traffic-less places to ride. This is not one we will return to.
We rode this on our Ebikes in early December 2022. Camped at Highland Hammock State Park (gorgeous) and rode 4 miles from the Park on the Hammock Trail to Sonny's BBQ on Rt 27. Crossed with the signal and the Lake Jackson sidewalk is right there. You could ride either direction about 10 miles around the Lake and arrive back at Sonny's for lunch. Part of the sidewalk is right on the Lake and some of it a bit off the Lake as you ride past the beautiful Lake houses. Sidewalk is a bit bumpy in spots but didn't bother us. We really enjoyed it. Fun to see all the houses and amazing landscaping. We are from AZ so the lushness is beautiful to us. I know many like the more remote trails and we do too, but also like the in town trails with lots to look at.
We were not able to connect the dots without a spill from a flat tire on a bridge in traffic. The nearby bikeshop was closed and only opens a couple of days a week. The trail needs signs and cleanup to allow for what this map displays.
Went to ride this today, however, the road is closed to the parking lot for the jungle trail. Also, the Pelican Island National Reserve was closed. Probably due to storm damage was our guess.
I would agree with everything said above re: conditions of the road. I would only add that I started at the northern end of the Old Dixie Highway bridge and used bike lanes to get to the south end of the GRP. From the bridge to the north end at Walton Road was exactly 7 miles, so it is adequate if you want a 10-14 mile workout. Only one big traffic intersection and one relatively easy roundabout to contend with along the whole expanse. Agree that I wouldn’t travel out of my way for this trail, but it’s nice to have close by.
