Completed the largo to Clearwater section and detoured to the beach for lunch. We drove from Bradenton and parked at Scott Taylor park -It had bathrooms and connects to the trail. Will definitely do this again but wanted to share how to get there because I looked for others that might have detoured to the beach for lunch and didn't see exactly how to do it. Follow the trail from Largo to Clearwater and take a left at turner street. You will see the sign that says "to beach" follow that! ( we didn't do that and ended up riding with traffic) It has a paved sidewalk with a yellow strip on the side with signs to show you the way. You also mostly stay off the road this way. Also--this will keep you away from traffic on this side that goes over the Clearwater bridge. When you get to just before the roundabout- use the crosswalk to walk over to the right side of the road and take the roundabout north. We wanted to have lunch right on the beach at frenchys Rockaway grill. You are on the sand with umbrellas! It was magical. Turns out there are several frenchys restaurants - so go for the "rockaway grill". There was also the Palm Pavillion restaurant but it has a patio and you aren't directly on the sand. This was a decent ride and the only hard part was the hill up the bridge- we walked some of it. Not that bad but we were out of shape. We originally were thinking we biked about 7 miles round trip. Turns out it was 13 total. We were shocked because it didn't feel that long. The ride is close to one hour each way. Not including lunch- which we spent about 1.5 hours! We didn't want to leave it was so perfect. I hope this helps someone who was like me looking for help to plan a a detour to the beach. Definitely doing this again! bridge.
We were very disappointed in our Jan 2021 visit to this nicely shaded and straight as an arrow trail. The surface is kinda bumpy where roots have caused the asphalt to rise making for an uncomfortable ride. Saw only 1 turtle and 1 rat snake. Had hoped for other wildlife so we found it pretty boring. The Withlahoochee remains our favorite!
Easy ride. Trail is clean-has a few leaves & sticks. Easy to park & go to the trail.
Trail is great once you get to it. Nice ride from Palm Harbor! Shaded, lots of trees and nature. Rode to the North end and stopped at all the parks and nature trails. Flat smooth ride.
I used live in TotW and loved being so close to ReamWilson. Moved to Spring Hill 3 years ago and riding trails are far a few between
This is a very unique ride as it is so urban. You pass numerous buildings including offices, warehouses, apartments, single family homes, small businesses, etc. There are also several bicycle bridges that cross roads so you don't need to stop for traffic. They were quite cool and a great leg workout riding up so many of them. The other great feature of this trail is its length... it is nearly 50 miles long so for those who love long rides you have plenty of trail to explore.
Since this trail had such high reviews my wife and I drove over from Orlando to give it a try. The first 5 miles or so were nice but then, after crossing Ehrilch Rd (heading north), it got a bit "sketchy" as the trail passed through some less than desirable neighborhoods. The entire trail was well maintained but this last section was not very appealing from an aesthetic point of view and my wife told me that she would not feel safe if I were not with her.
Did 11 miles great experience love this park.
and not a drop to drink... for 10 miles
Very good bike path. Good distance with a great incline over a bridge to make the ride challenging and interesting. A good 21 mile round tripe workout.
The entire trail is terrific but if you only want to do part of it, I suggest the bottom half. The other day we drove to Floral City Park and accessed the trail about a quarter mile down the road to the east. We began riding south on mostly uninterrupted and canopied trail. Along Istachatta Rd with beautiful fields and ranches. We connected with the Good Neighbor Trail at about mile 10 from the terminus and rode southwest. It’s a newer straight trail to Brooksville. We saw two other riders and nothing but trees. Turned around at the end and returned to Floral City. A beautiful 40 mile ride.
Being relatively new to Florida, I sought out a home near good/safe cycling. I was hoping for secluded roads, but found the Suncoast Trail instead. The SCT was a major reason I purchased a home were i did. A bad day on the SCT is better than a good day on the road! You can ride for miles and miles without the fear of cars. There are some major intersection crossings but if you obey the lights and use common sense safety, you'll be fine. Bring plenty of water. There are some convenient stores along the route, but you'll need to venture off the trail for a half mile or so.
