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.
The trail is easy and fun for a family day out. However, the path may not be ideal for roller blades. Parts of the path might be wet or have sand/dirt across it. Having said all of that I would still go back, 1.3 mile trail is a great distance for rollerblades (we did a down and back twice)!
Overall surface in great shape. Saw only a few riding all day. If your looking for speed you can ramp it up pretty good on this straight shot to St. Marks. Just pay attention at 4-5 roads crossing the path along the way.
Biked the stretch from the library downtown out to the golf courses at Cherokee and back. Nice stretch with 2 shaded bench rest stops with water. A few road crossing with decent sight lines. Saw a dozen folks working out and 2 folks transporting themselves via bike to/from work. Nice to see it used, miles marked, and two trailheads.
Rode this trail today. We parked off Suwannee St in Cascade Park., it was Friday but we found plenty of parking even though we were by the Water Park which was busy. First rode trail on side of Franklin St. and was thinking this is just a wide sidewalk. Quickly we were enjoying the ride though the neighborhood the gardens and landscape was beautiful and well groomed. We rode to Tennessee across from Leon High then turned back, there was a few road crossings but there were crosswalk lights. We passed back through the park and kept going to a nice trail bridge over Monroe and then followed FAMU Way on the trail. It did not end at Pinellas Circle so we kept going. Great views of the Capital, we passed some Canadian Geese who moved slowly from the trail. We kept going until we knew we were going south and went under Orange Ave. Then we realized we were on the Tall- St. Marks Trail. So the two trail do connect. We returned to our Van at the park and explored more and found the old Utilities Building is a beautiful restaurant Called The Edison. A great ride and a showcase trail for what a local city can do with its spaces and resources.
