Great fun trail. Short up and downs. Crushed stone surface. The erosion control berms were fun. Had 34 & 38 mm tires. Trail under I-10 is the roughest. Total out & back - 14 miles.
The trail is great and mostly in good shape except for the short stretch by the airport, tree roots are pushing up the pavement. Lots of shade along the way, water fountain and benches. We had a great ride!
Jan 2022: Parked and started from the St. Marks end of trail and rode to Wakulla (crossing highway 267). Nice wide paved path with some cracking in the surface making for some less than smooth travel. Not severe but enough to give a bit of roughness. As with most rail-to-trails, lots of straight and fairly flat travel. Did see a few deer along through the woods, lots of woods to the sides. A few others trail users were out but was an early morning and coolish temps. Did see one informational panel along trailside. Plenty of rest stop places with benches and a couple nice looking restrooms. When a bit warmer day would ride further.
It was a nice cool Saturday morning. The trails were in great shape. They wind through tall pines and fields of brush. Very nice trails for beginner mountain biking. I would suggest you bring a map as it is easy to get lost as I did. The trails are well worn but do have some sandy areas. The west connector is red clay and runs faster than the other trails. This connector also has some mild hills. It was my first go on these trails but would highly recommend. I will return with my wife in tow for the next go around. Enjoy
We went to the south end of the trail to start our ride. We parked right across from the trail head on the Saint Marks river There’s a little parking lot there that is free during the day but not at night. There are a couple cute little restaurants in the town with outdoor seating and it’s fun to just ride around and look at the old Florida way of life. There are also several parks with restrooms along the water going north and a mini bike trail. Once you start off on the trail, you can go all the way to Tallahassee or do any portion. The trail is very well kept with very little buckling or tree route intrusions etc. it’s all a very nice asphalt trail surface. Mostly it’s shady with an occasional sun break. Lots of little Florida houses and old boats and trees to enjoy along the route. It’s pretty straight so you can go fast or slow. We went on a Thursday and there was very little traffic. It’s much less traveled than the north end of the trail but the whole trail is really really nice. We’ve done the north and the south end. It’s worse a bike ride it’s worth a car ride from Tallahassee down to this trail head
I enjoy being able to choose to walk on asphalt or venture off into the forest. Great trail for walking, or biking.
The description fails to mention that the the St. Marks trail also goes north and ends there in Cascade Park, and also connects to Railroad Square and the Gains street area.
We started at the Riverside Cafe in St. Marks on the Tallahassee/St Marks Trail and took a left after 3 miles onto the Coastal trail. We turned at a convenience store just passed the Wakulla High School. The trail was in great condition and provided plenty of shade at various times. But there are parts under the sun too. We started around 10AM and except for a lady in a wheelchair, we never saw another person on the Coastal Trail. There were several convenience stores along the route which we took advantage to refill water bottles. It was a nice day, especially the beer at the Riverside Cafe upon completion.
We rode the trail in the late afternoon. We picked the trail up right outside our hotel (Best Western in Crawfordville)It was shaded and cool. In great condition. There are a couple busy streets you have to cross while riding, but all in all a great trail.
We’ve biked this trail before. It’s always a pleasant ride. Excellent weather today. Some of the trail is covered and some open.
Very nice and enjoyable ride. Only suggestion would be to mark it better!
Clocked 3.3 miles from one end to the other took some side trails on way back. 6.8 total. Granted I didn’t do all of the sides but there is no way this stretches to 15miles. There are also “speed bumps” throughout. Probably some type of drainage solution. They weren’t bad but worth noting
