General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Our first visit to this trail

January, 2021 by 8gfczrqgsp

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!

Auburndale TECO Trail

Morning Ride

January, 2021 by dmurrayn6

Easy ride. Trail is clean-has a few leaves & sticks. Easy to park & go to the trail.

West Orange Trail

Cute little towns line the trail as it weaves in and out of locations. Not intended for someone trying to get in long continious miles. Several street crossings.

Little Econ Greenway

Greenway Trail

December, 2020 by pattiiwaldo

Park at Blanchard park. The trail is asphalt and well maintained. Very scenic. Worth the ride.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Did 11 miles great experience love this park.

Did 11 miles great experience love this park.

Little Econ Greenway

Going east on the trail at Rouse Rd there is no marking as to where to continue. I thought i was at the end. I'll have to go back another time to complete it.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Ride on December 18, 2020

December, 2020 by OldTerry

Experienced a bit of difficulty finding parking but eventually solved that problem. The trail is nice and the section my wife and I rode was scenic. In all honesty this trail is too urban for my tastes but I can see how it would appeal to locals for walking, running and recreational riding.

Hancock Trail

Challenging but beautiful

November, 2020 by pkrauss_tl

We started at the golf club. We only rode this trail for a very short distance - but what we did see the trail was absolutely beautiful. It was too challenging for my wife and I - we are in our mid 70s. Glad we gave it a shot. (Wish we were 10 years younger!

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Favorite Daily Route

November, 2020 by b8vfp9dcym

I pick up the trail at Destination Parkway and go all the way up to Oak Ridge (3 miles total). It's well maintained, and really quite beautiful and peaceful. I incorporate these two sections into my daily ride and love it every time! The Destination Parkway to Sand Lakr road section is 1 mile along a canal setting. Lots of Sandhill Cranes to be seen, and some snakes (be careful, they're pretty venomous), but never any gators, which I have seen on the Sand Lake to Oak Ridge section (2 miles) in the lakes/ponds. This is a popular multi use trail, so be aware of people walking/running.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Very nice but short

November, 2020 by cprado2005

Trail is in great shape.. nice view as you ride.. It is very short 8.5 mile round trip..

Neptune Road Recreational Pathway

not impressed

November, 2020 by cprado2005

Trail is average.. no much to see.. 90% of the trail is next to a busy road... Trail is not road bike friendly... ok if you have mountain bike.. I will not recommend!!

Little Econ Greenway

great trail

November, 2020 by hyltons

Great for biking, skating, running, walking you name it. Nice wide paved path so there’s room for everybody. Scenic ride along the water with fun spots over and under bridges. Lots of benches and water fountains to stop at along the way.
