Rode this trail with our 9-year old son. We parked right off the trail at the northern end at the Culverhouse Nature Park parking lot. We started in the early afternoon on an 86-degree sunny day. If we had to do it over we would have started later to get a bit more shade as the sun would have been lower in the sky. Having said that, somehow we completed the whole trail. Our previous record was only 11 miles! This trail has lots of stops with cover, which really helped. A handful of port a lets throughout the trail; but seemed to be more concentrated towards the northern half. Just a couple of bridges over some roads that my wife and 9-year old son walked their bikes up. I wasn't super impressed with the Depot. We looked around for a few minutes, hydrated, and headed back.
I ride this trail all the time.
Fun, relaxing 7mile asphalt loop. Great fun!
A great find in Florida and the best part is there’s lots of shade! Loved it!
Amazing view and the steep bridge was a challenge
Have done all trails in West Fl. This trail is flat, has many evasive plants and has little to no cover. It’s a narrow trail and there are many better trails on west coast.
Beautiful waterside drive. Parked at maximo Park. Wandered around there a little bit and then hit the trail. Some of the trail , the water is hidden. Conditions were great. Very smooth trail. Enjoy
Nice ride. Great for beginners. My 10-year-old daughter and I started ridinf the trail. At first we were only able to get 10 to 15 mi now she's up to 30 mi when we add the Venetian waterway.
I only wish it were longer. About 7 miles round trip. We parked at Maximo Park. Be careful crossing underneath 275.
We went during the even to watch the sunset and see the skyway lights. I’ve biked this trail twice in the evening (7-9pm) during the week. If you choose to park at the rest stop just be aware that you will have to bike on the road to get to the trail. That area is quite busy on the weekends with people fishing, kayaking and doing water sports, so we preferred to go when it’s not as HOT and with less traffic. The trail is close to Maximo Park. That’s the closest parking to the trail in the South side or you can park at the rest stop off of I-275. Maximo Park closes at sunset although they seem to keep the gates open later than that. We road from Maximo and a little further than the map indicates and it was almost a 10mile ride round trip. There are 2 bridges and from one of the bridges you can see the skyway. Beautiful scenery as the trail is a long the water half of the way. The only downfall is the trail is right next to I-275 so it can get pretty noisy.
Lots of things to see including primates! You can make extended trips by going to parks, beaches, out to lunch or on the sponge docks of Tarpon Springs. Great trail!
Fantastic ride, even on a hot summer day. A stop in Dunedin for lunch and gelato at the bike store made it even more enjoyable. Not as much scenery along the way but lots of great stops in the small towns.
