Continue up Janes Memorial all the way to the end. It's about 6 miles of dirt road. There you can either take the trail to the right or continue on an additional 6 or so miles of Janes that is now closed to traffic. The trail to the right is an old raised railroad bed and is a great cross country ride through the swamp. At the end is a camp site, lake and fire pit. This place is loaded with wildlife including numerous alligators. You need to be aware that they can be anywhere along the trail. Great ride and it can get muddy and wet after heavy rains. Saw 8 alligators last time on that rail. One was actually across the trail itself and didn't want to move. Had to wait it out.
Is this a somewhat boring concrete path: yes, agreed! However, if you have a cruiser bike, mountain bike, or any fat tire bike, try leaving the Stringfellow Road bike path, for the quiet, green unpaved side roads that run east and west generally.
Not a lot of shade so I wouldn’t recommend in mid summer but during winter is perfect. We really enjoyed it. We did entire length ended up a bit over 28 miles down and back
Wonderful people safe and beautiful marked trails with with informative naturalist information. Can’t wait to try it in the fall and spring.
Camped overnight on the island and did two days of casual bike riding. Trails are awesome, they even have water fountains.
This bumpy sidewalk is not even a bike path......what a mess ! Will never even think about going there again. I am an experienced cyclist. How could anyone give this place 4 stars ?
Excellent trail located in a city environment. Wide bike and pedestrian asphalt roadway. Good chance to see a variety of waterfowl along the canal.
Starting at the NW Trailhead Colonial Blvd and Ortiz, there is a three mile section heading west that is completely off road and a very nice canal ride. Two road crossings. At that point I encountered a sign claiming the trail ended. I made my way south on Metro Pkwy in a well marked bike lane turning left (west) on Colonial Blvd for a block before getting on the Yarbrough trail again (TenMile Canal). At Daniels Pkwy there is a section that advises going down the the crossing lane, and since it is a very busy and wide Pkwy, I followed that advise. Back on the canal the trail continues to the technical end at the 6 Mile Cypress Pkwy. I continued to ride it back up to my original start for a 19+ mile ride.
Loved the trail and the wildlife and flora along the trail. I chased a two foot long iguana for a short time, until it finally heard me coming up behind.
It's a well maintained trail, and well used. A great ride.
Some shade on northern half depending on time of day. Phillips Park about mid island is a good place to park.
We rode from St James to the middle of Pine Island. The trail was just okay. Nice cement sidewalk along side the highway. Not a lot to see. However, beyond the trail in St James we had the best seafood gumbo ever at The Waterfront Inn Restaurant and the Key Lime Pie was to die for!!
Stop at the visitor center as you enter the island to get a map. Free parking and restrooms at the SCCF Park 1300 Periwinkle Way, about a mile from the visitor center. Trails are all in good condition and separated from traffic. There are much more than 24 miles if you do all the trails. The trail is busy along Periwinkle, but then it thins out and you can ride as fast as you want. Bikes can be rented in a number of locations so there are a lot of kids and inexperienced riders, but they usually stay on their side.
First time on this trail and enjoyed everything around me.
