Duke Energy Trail

Great Trail

March, 2024 by jpjjt

I rode this trail yesterday 03/03/24 and it was amazing. I can’t wait to ride it again.

Starkey Wilderness Park Paved Trail

Great Trail...Trail information is a bit inaccurate

March, 2024 by 4jxs28d2k4

The trail is over 6 miles long if you start at the Starkey Park Bike Trailhead. The map on here that starts at Long Leaf is inaccurate. If you started at Long leaf and followed the path it would take you about 5 miles just to get to the park.

The park is free with ample parking and mostly good signage. There is a bathroom and water station at both ends of the nicely paved trail. Be on the lookout for snakes and tortoises on the trail!

Courtney Campbell Trail

Family Friendly

March, 2024 by dolsonfamily2013

Perfect trail for families with young children in their bikes

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

Nice flat trail. Lots of access points and bathrooms, benches, and picnic tables along the way. We didn't see very many people on a Saturday afternoon. We did see a gpher tortoise and black snake. No shade, wear your helmet/hat and sunscreen.

Nathan Benderson Park Trail

Great walk with wild life and excellent views of the rowing lake.

Upper Tampa Bay Trail

Great Skating Trail

February, 2024 by brookeypav

Did the entire trail (both ends) on quad skates (24 mile total). Amazing surface quality for skating. Lots of cute landmarks especially the old railroad bridges. Very enjoyable…except the random landfill bleh. But lovely trail. Definitely fun for the fellow skaters

Upper Tampa Bay Trail

trail closed at rocky creek

February, 2024 by jpxrn68cxh

February 8/24 disappointed!! We stared at Peterson Rd and trail closed ate Rock Creek over pass. Had great lunch at Florida Cracker Trading Company. Hope the trail is not closed at this point too long!

Tampa Riverwalk

good for walking

February, 2024 by britrosie

Tampa Riverwalk is okay for walking, but anything else wouldn’t work out quite well. I scootered there and it was kinda hard with so many people walking around. It’s a high traffic area.

Legacy Trail (FL)

New Favorite Florida Rail-Trail

January, 2024 by brookeypav

I travel the Florida rail-trails as a distance skater (I do quad & in-line). This trail is gorgeous ! Saw a bobcat on my way down to Venice. Started in downtown Sarasota and went the entire route to Venice’s Depot. Venice Depot is gorgeous …you cross over some water but it is amazing. Great trail surface. Beautiful scenery. Little elevation gain except two bridges near the Venice end. 10/10 recommend especially for fellow skaters

Suncoast Trail

Suncoast cruise

January, 2024 by sandymo

As others have said, much of the trail is adjacent to the main highway. That said, it’s a great trail and is perfect for getting in some miles. It’s not the most scenic and there are no facilities, but for making time and logging miles, it can’t be beat.

Upper Tampa Bay Trail

Quick Classic

January, 2024 by ryanmtator

I enjoy this trail as it weaves in and out of city and wilderness views. For me it’s a nice afternoon quick ride. I might bring a hammock sometime for the park.

North Bay Trail

Easy City Trail

January, 2024 by kelly_witherspoon

This trail is super scenic along the waterfront on the southern end and then hugs a semi-major road on the northern end. It’s an easy ride, very flat, and the path is paved and very large going both ways like a huge oversized sidewalk
