It’s a nice area around the lake but not a nature trail at all.
Good area for some training runs. Only good hill section is the bridge over the turnpike. Some sections of the paved route are being pushed up by tree roots so be careful if doing any night running. Also street crossings across Neptune Road can be a bit adventurous and time consuming. Not all the street crossing buttons work. No parking at the end of the route in Saint Cloud but I park at Partin Triangle Park and then jump on the trail since I live on the Saint Cloud side.
I took this as a diversion to the East Central Trail only a short ways. It was only a wide sidewalk right next to a very busy road with many intersections. Maybe this will one day be a good connector or maybe it gets better towards Sanford but for now it's not worth the effort. Hard to see how Florida can call sidewalks trails. I guess it's better than riding on a busy road with no shoulders.
I rode parts of this trail I hadn't been on before namely Edgewater to the split. Finding the parking area was easy but getting on the right trail wasn't. After you cross busy Park Ave you go on a narrow sidewalk and then take a right turn. At that point a wide paved trail (apparently a city trail) lies straight ahead with no marking, so I took the logical path and eventually wound up dead ended in front of a high school. To get back to the trail from where I was at I had to take a very busy, no shoulder road (Old Mission) to connect to the East Central Trail. On the way back, the ECT dead ended with no signs or arrows. Whoever manages this trail needs to install signs or at least arrows. Also, as far as signs go it would be nice to get some idea of point-to-point distances. For markings and signage this trail gets a BIG RED "F".
And while they're at it why not put in some porta-potties and water fountains--there are NO facilities or stores on this trail--so pack in your water & food supply.
With that said this trail was very nice & smooth with lush vegetation on both sides. Why not add to what's been done to make it more user friendly.
This is a great trail. Like the curves and gentle hills. The scenery is perfect. Makes for a perfect 30+ mile ride.
2019.11.29 Black Friday, yep! Busy Shopping Centers & traffic...nope, NOT for this guy. I took my bicycle with me on an easy 20 minute urban train ride, from downtown Orlando to this BEAUTIFUL PARK in Kissimmee! The SunRail station is a short distance from Kissimmee Lakefront Park. FYI ...SunRail only operates during the weekdays. Ample Parking, Great for Bike rides, walks, jogging. I will return and explore the ride along side Neptune road
The Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway is the epitome of what a bike trail should be.The asphalt blacktop looks newly paved and is almost perfectly smooth the entire 15+ mile ride. It is plenty wide for two way traffic and passing with lots of nice curves and some hills passing through some truly beautiful woodlands in Central Florida just outside of Ocala. Wildlife abounds along its entire length. An added bonus is the 100's of miles of mountain bike trails that intersect along its length in many places. It is super well maintained and marked throughout on the pavement for any emergency that may need reporting. There are only a couple of road crossings with the majority being underpasses and a very unique overpass over Interstate 75. Anywhere there is a blind corner there are large round cornering mirrors and signs to notify you to slow appropriately. There are water and toilet facilities at the Santos Trailhead and further down their is an equestrian campground that also has accessible facilities. If you plan for a down and back ride it is a great workout and make sure to bring some hydration. A large part of the ride is shaded but there is enough sun exposure to warrant sunscreen. All and all, this is a top teir bike trail and worth the drive to get there if you have to travel. Truly My New Favorite Bike Trail! Highly Recommended!!!
Beautiful scenery but ride is very rough, part of the trail is concrete that’s coming apart.
My wife and I started at the Lake Monroe park and boat launch. Rode this portion north and east around the lake and then picked up the west end of the East Central Regional trail. I'm guessing about 32 miles round trip. Definitely a 5+ rating. The scenery and wildlife was amazing. We saw 2 bald eagles and a family of deer along the way. Visited Gemini Springs and Green Springs too. Also, at every street crossing we came to, all the motorists were so considerate. Evidence of a community that embraces the trails and the folks who use it. After our ride we drove to Central 28 brewing for a beer. We could have rode our bikes there but it was getting dark. Their beers are really good and they had a great food truck that night. For those that read this review I'll give you a tip. If you ride your bike to the brewery on a Sunday they will give you a beer for free !!
Awesome bike ride for those who don't need paved trails. There is nature galore with many species of birds and alligators everywhere. If you go down all the various paths you can easily exceed 30 miles of riding. The paths are from decently smooth to very rough. Recommended that you have a bike with suspension for your own comfort. A regular bike could make it of course but many areas with a very rough ride. There is a bathroom and water fountain at the trailhead but only porta potties in a couple of other places. Cars are alowed in certain parts from Friday to Sunday but shouldn't be a real issue for bikers.
Trail is very well maintained, rest areas plentiful along the way. Nice scenery
Its not as easy to find nice camping and a beautiful bike trail as you would think. Blue Springs campground is right on the trail! You can ride into Town, never have to drive. This whole trail system is really growing. Very exciting.
