On one hand (like many on here have said) if you enjoy a limited brief ride through the various towns, it is really awesome. Great scenery through the various towns and you could stop for some refreshments and such at many points.
However... if, like me, you want to get on a trail and just really ride and get some miles in, this isn't for you. I saw that it was a 50 mile ride and I was looking forward to a nice long 4 hour ride where i can maintain a certain speed and such. That doesn't happen on this trail, you stop over and over and over at every crosswalk. So you can't really get a good consistent ride in. Also at a lot of the crosswalks there is a small dip built into the pavement which I guess is there to remind you to stop. After a few hours of hitting these over and over I busted a tire... so things didn't end well for me.
So... if you like to get out and train and get some serious mileage in, this isn't for you. If you like a leisurely ride and stop and enjoy the communities then this is a perfect ride for you.
The trail is well kept and again very nice scenery.
Flat, next to the river. Short 6 miles. Good shade.
I love this trail! Just be sure to bring sunscreen. Not much in the way of shade but it’s a great run.
Trail is long enough with a mix of paved and gravel trail. Next to the ocean, not busy, Recommended.
Best ¿ ¿¿ way to connect with your Spirit. “Conquer anger with non-anger. .
These reviews are pretty dated. There are two sides of this trail separated by a bridge in the middle. The Clearwater and the Tampa side. The Clearwater side up to the bridge is nice and peaceful. Not a lot of pedestrians. There is a place along the beach to park on the Clearwater side, but it's expensive like $3 for one hour.
After the bridge, you're on the Tampa side. Here's where it goes downhill (no pun intended). It didn't used to be like this. I've lived here for 7 years.
When I first started riding on these trails, their wasn't too many people on them. They understood trail etiquette. You could get a good workout.
The Tampa side was always a little busier, but lately, it's gotten ridiculous. Tons of walkers and SLOW bikers who won't move over no matter how many times you call out. No trail etiquette. Kids play in the middle of the trail and their parents could care less. They let their kids run out in the middle of the trail no matter who is flying by.
Those two parts of the trail are only 7 or 8 miles long before you have to cross traffic. The park at the end on the Tampa side is dangerous if you're not paying attention. Cars do not watch out for pedestrians when turning into the park. In Tampa, in general, cars have NO respect for bike riders or pedestrians.
The trail continues on, but you have to cross a few dangerous intersections. You get to a concrete trail alongside the bay. It's hard to see around the corners, so you can't ride too fast. Again, not the best for road cyclists. It continues after the intersection that goes to the Hyatt. This last part of the trail is very bumpy. Not a smooth ride unless you have a cruiser or mountain bike.
If you're a serious road cyclist, I wouldn't bother coming here. It will be hard to get a good work out.
Pretty nice trail. Except for one strip, it’s probably more suited for walking than riding as it has some sharp curves
I biked from my house in Holiday to the top of the trail just north of the Key Vista Nature Park entrance. I rode it all the way to the Anclote River Park. It was a beautiful ride! The trail is smooth with minor inclines. The scenery is beautiful, and along this trail you have access to three wonderful parks. You can't beat that! I sat at the Anclote River Park along the water. They have plenty of park benches, picnic tables. a boat ramp, a swimming beach area, and restrooms. I highly recommend this trail.
My wife and I enjoyed the trail fro the waters edge in St Pete……up just past Clearwater in a little town named Dunedin! The trail is first class…..enjoy Urban, industrial , coastal and rural settings!!! A must if you are in the area!! Skip- Michigan
Sunny day in mid 70s. Really beautiful ride. We did round-trip on a 6.5 mile leg on electric bikes. Scenery is very open with ground pounds and young pines. Given the size of the park very few people there on a Friday afternoon. Recommend this place highly.
Very nice ride around Oldsmar. Take some time to learn history of area and connection to Oldsmobile. Lunch stop at Jack Willies was icing on the cake.
This trail was great. Well maintained, well marked, drivers were alert stopping and letting us through to continue on trail. There were plenty of places to leave trail to purchase drinks or to use restrooms along the way. The only thing we would do differently is start south and ride north we may not have had a headwind¿
