The Eastern part of this trail is paradise lost - some really spectacular views - it slowly becomes ugly the farther west you travel. Has some hills (for Florida lol) - it's nice to go in here to the shade after the Courtney Campbell. The only thing lacking is a water fountain and restroom. I'll do this trail over and over and enjoy the views everytime!
Rode from Green Pond trailhead and except for a few rain showers it was a great ride.
The trail now runs the 10 miles from Brooksville to the Withlacoochie. Paving is complete but not officially open. Rode on Sunday but were not allowed when workers present, today. Expect that will end soon. Inaugural Ride set for Oct 14, an event following the annual Withlacoochie ride on Oct. 7
The Upper Tampa Bay trail is a 'go to' ride for many reasons. Multiple access points within parks, a 'no-cost' parking option at the Citrus Park Mall (1 block from trail), a nice bike shop along the route across from a Tiki Bar style restaurant that will quench your thirst as desired. The route has contour following a waterway, street flyover to let your shift gears and climb the small hill, and plenty of shade along the route for the warm Tampa days. A good mix of riders, walkers and runners can be found throughout the day. The trail is quiet and safe - highly recommended!
We used Inverness as our start/finish since the parking is perfect and we love the town of Inverness. The trail is well maintained with a good blend of sun and shade. Well marked and a good feel of “Old Florida”.
A great ride across the upper Tampa Bay. In the early morning you will encounter groups of serious riders, runners etc. In the evening you'll see many people fishing, roller blading or getting ready for the sunset. The bridge at the halfway point is a fun/challenging/scenic distraction as well. Only downfalls are loud traffic nearby and no water stations. Certainly one of the better rides in Tampa though!
Been riding this trail for over 15 years and it's been a very good place to ride until about a month ago(06/2018 when everything change.The weeds along the trail haven't been cut,the trail has weeds growing in the cracks,the trash cans are always full of trash,and the bathrooms are a mess,no toilet paper,trash on the floors,toilets plugup.The bridge near the Polk City trailhead has been under construction for over a month.Maybe they should bring back Ross.He got the job done.
Great road & mtb trails, very easy and fast.. Only down fall is any kind of rain will end the ride.. trails flood very easy even the road loop.
Trails hold water for a long time, you can count on any kind of rain closing the trails for a couple of weeks.
Rode this for the first time today. Byclists were freindly/respectful of one another. Wild life to see and water stops were good. A $2.00 fee was fine if it helps with upkeep. Put this on your list to ride!
We rode this trail from Clearwater to Tampa. A great trail that hugs the water way (perhaps the international coastal way) The trail offers wonderful scenery of the waterway and the related wildlife as well as the city skylines. There is a bridge that is quite the incline however there was no issue climbing it. Great views from the top of the bridge that has lookouts on each side. The trail is well maintained and is asphalt. This is like the Chicago Lake Front Trail but in my opinion better. Less wind. For sure a commuter trail. After the bridge incline the trail is flat. There is a great display of Pelicans catching their daily meals too. Great trail.
WOW I can not say enough about this trail. We rode all 29 miles of it from end point to end point for 60 miles total. The trail is totally flat. No incline at all. The trail wisp through marsh lands, Wooded land, Pasture fields and small towns at each end point trail head. There is plenty of shaded areas however the areas in the sun can get quite hot for long stretches. Lots of water is required for this ride. Along the way we say 6 10 to 12 foot alligators one 4 footer and numerous baby's about 1 to 2 feet long. We saw them from one of the many swamp overpasses. We saw none on the path or near it. The ones we saw were close to us but below us. We saw numerous turtles, pelicans, cows,panther,numerous style birds. The trail is about a 50 minute drive from Clearwater and we did that in rush hour. There were nominal places to eat or water fountains in comparison to typical trails. The trail is maintained well. There are sheltered areas to cool off about every 5 miles. The trail was also pretty well traveled the day we were on it. Still it was a pleasant ride. This is a great trail and I rank it 5 stars. I have traveled across the country on great trails. This is in my top five. Just be prepared for the unexpected and bring water. Limited food too.
this trail offers a view of nature and wildlife at its best as you ride along the trail. you will need to be on the lookout for snakes and turtle crossing the trail. The trail is clean and well maintained.
