Easy ride. Seems safe. Mostly shaded. Plenty of restrooms along the route, not sure of cleanliness of all. Worth it especially for endurance training/vacationers.
This is a great trail that connects east Tallahassee and Southwood community to the St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail. (Access to the village of St. Marks - 16 miles to the south and the university/capital’s downtown area). The surface is excellent asphalt. The landscaping by the city is beautiful and well maintained. Water fountains are placed along the trail. Very few cross-traffic intersections to navigate.
This trail has something for every skill level for mountain biking. It is also an excellent walking trail that meanders past dikes, and has a beautiful bridge with great views.
A very wide gravel trail with plenty of shade, hills and great scenery. There’s a bathroom and water stop in the middle.
Why Spend money to build a trail If you are not going to maintain it? The asphalt is in decent shape, with the expected cracks and upheaval. The benches along the trail are mostly rotted as is the fitness stations. The bridge near the north end is not safe - many rotted planks. Parts of the trail have a lot of litter. The restroom at the boat ramp is pretty gross. After all that the trail was a good short exercise experience. Signage to the trailheads are non-existent.
We rode from southern terminus 10 mikes north and back on a Saturday afternoon in January. Plentiful parking there. Trail is tree lined on both sides. Includes mile markers. Ample covered benches and bathrooms. Miles 12-13 were a little bumpy from tree roots. Moderate usage but never crowded. Most road crossings were lightly traveled. Overall, a really nice trail.
I typically ride this trail very early on Saturday mornings, from just south of Capital Circle trailhead down to St Marks and back. It’s a real joy to ride.
It’s heavily shaded, in very good condition and with clear mile markers. Major road crossing at about mile 9.7 or so, as well as a few others marked on the map. Scenic and a joy to ride, with ample opportunities to kick it into high gear if that’s your thing. The St Marks mile marker says “16” but it’s actually 15.75 miles.
As with any longer ride, I strongly suggest you bring rain gear, a pump, extra tubes and basic tools, as well as snacks and two water bottles.
Very good idea to put flashing lights on your front and rear to get the attention of drivers at road crossings, especially since you may get a little zoned out after a few hours of cycling, and since some drivers may run a stop sign or otherwise cause issues even when you have the right of way. Also good to wear orange!
Good solo ride, duo or group ride. Flat and mostly straight. And fun.
this is a very easy, flat, paved trail that is good for walking, running or cycling. there was no one on the trail when we went. and i didn't find it very shady, as another reviewer found.
overall there is nothing not to like. it's just not the most diverse landscape but aside from that, a good, fairly short trail.
This is an easy trail and the town people are friendly. Hurricane Michael devastated this area. Riding this trail will make you realize how powerful a category 4-5 hurricane really is. Blountstown is more than 60 miles from the coast and Michael still landed a major blow here. Hats off to the folks that cleared this trail! Still nice but not as much shade for reasons you will discover!
Great trail for hilly terrain and good views.
My husband and I really enjoyed this ride. We parked at the airport and rode by the golf course. It was relaxing and quite enjoyable. Just a few small crossroads. Very nice!
Great for marathon roller blading. I would like to see the State of Florida add mile markers.
