Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway (Santos Trailhead to CR 200)

A trail on the Withlacochee river

So much fun! Dirt road along the river to the bike trail. Easy paved trail along the river. Saw wildlife. Loved the trail

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Keystone - Palatka - great trail

September, 2020 by jimbocollins3

Great trail, we started from Twin Lakes parking area in Lake Geneva. Bathroom and lots of parking. Excellent surface, half shaded. We went the 20 miles east to end of trail (the mile markers are incorrect at this point, the trail ends at the "6" mile marker, eventually it will go into Palatka - hopefully). Presently you would have to jump on the highway (100) to go into Palatka. We rode back through Keystone to the end of the trail a few miles the other side of Keystone Heights. Did not find the Hometown Restaurant, but a nice lunch at Clydes (only open until 2 pm).

Withlacoochee State Trail

Great trail for beginners to professionals

September, 2020 by tama.brian

This trail for me is perfect, I am a brand new biker in my late 40’s and my wife is as well. She is an experienced tri-athlete and knows her way around a bike. This particular trail is all paved at least for the 15 miles we have traversed as well as the off shoot “good neighbor trail”. You have 1 place for water and rest rooms at the 6 mile marker if you start on state road 301 north of Dade City. We have 20oz water bottles and that for me on these hot days is not nearly enough. I am looking into purchasing camelbak style packs to have plenty more fluids. That is my only issue, little hills, big hills and everything in between. Highly recommend trying this trail.

Withlacoochee Bay Trail

Great short ride

September, 2020 by rrahrig007

Good, ample parking with indoor plumbing rest rooms at the trailhead. There is no canopy to speak of for shade. My fitness watch measured 35’ of elevation change throughout the ride. The trail doesn’t open until 8am.

Nice, flat trail

August, 2020 by rrahrig007

Rode from Inverness trailhead south to Floral City and back. Also north a few miles and back. Saw one deer and one squirrel. Nothing special, but not bad either. If you’re looking for a place to ride for exercise this will work.

lovely, shaded, undulating greenway trail

August, 2020 by travelkelli

This trail was unexpectedly beautiful, curvy and shaded... Nice change from the very straight Florida rail trails. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Saturday in the Park....

August, 2020 by elckook

Started at Fort Cooper area (off 41) and headed North toward Inverness. Great ride! Inverness is a quaint little town nestled right on the Trail and Waterfront. Farmer’s Market, water stops, restaurants in Inverness Square, David’s World of Cycle on the Trail, and beautiful Florida landscape and natural habitants

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Great shady ride

June, 2020 by deester1

Picked up trail across from airport. No real trailhead, just a dirt parking area. That’s the only downside of the entire experience. At 7 am We rode 15 mile out and back. 90% shaded. Imagine it would be 75% shaded even later in day. Saw only 2 or 3 bicyclists and one walker the entire 30 miles. Well maintained, clean and swept except for a small 3 mile section. Stopped at Florahome trailhead where they have facilities. That’s the only trailhead we saw on our ride.

Withlacoochee Bay Trail

Really nice short ride. Left a little late so eas very hot and not a shaded trail...that's my fault. No potholes, saw deer and the beautiful water. Impressed with how well it is kept up. Bathrooms at beginning which os always a plus. I
