Suncoast Trail

Boring, Noisy

May, 2022 by hjinman46

It’s right next to a major highway…what else do I have to tell you?

Starkey Wilderness Park Paved Trail

Nice, but Boring

May, 2022 by hjinman46

For a short ride when you don’t have a lot of time this is fine. But it’s flat, boring and the same trees ad nauseum.

Tampa Riverwalk

not really good for a bike ride

May, 2022 by hjinman46

Walking it is better than taking a lot of time to unload a bike!


Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

Best in FL

May, 2022 by hjinman46

This beats the Legacy Trail to pieces! It’s got several bridges, but the scenery is much better than Legacy. Also St. Pete is a much better end than Venice (although Venice is very nice!)

Duke Energy Trail

Very Confusing

May, 2022 by hjinman46

We’ll-groomed trail but very confusing ( and not we’ll-marked) after you pass under Rt. 19. Watch out for the disc golfers! ¿

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Still Lack of Signage

May, 2022 by dan508

Not really sure why the lack is signage on this trail has not yet been improved. Has the county not read the reviews mentioning signage issues? It’s not like it hasn’t been a issue very long. The trail is nice. I rode from the Minneola Trailhead to the Winter Garden Station today. There were no maps of the trail that I could find at Minneola. When heading to West Orange you come to what is sort of a fork in the trail at Hancock Road. There is signage at the intersection but no arrows or plain direction to West Orange. I first took a right on Hancock and followed that trail which clearly wasn’t correct because it takes you to the very busy area in of Highway 50. I back tracked to the fork in the road then went left. Correct way. Still poor signage. Please Orange County fix this issue.

Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

Good and Bad

May, 2022 by sbtjosh

On one hand (like many on here have said) if you enjoy a limited brief ride through the various towns, it is really awesome. Great scenery through the various towns and you could stop for some refreshments and such at many points.

However... if, like me, you want to get on a trail and just really ride and get some miles in, this isn't for you. I saw that it was a 50 mile ride and I was looking forward to a nice long 4 hour ride where i can maintain a certain speed and such. That doesn't happen on this trail, you stop over and over and over at every crosswalk. So you can't really get a good consistent ride in. Also at a lot of the crosswalks there is a small dip built into the pavement which I guess is there to remind you to stop. After a few hours of hitting these over and over I busted a tire... so things didn't end well for me.

So... if you like to get out and train and get some serious mileage in, this isn't for you. If you like a leisurely ride and stop and enjoy the communities then this is a perfect ride for you.

The trail is well kept and again very nice scenery.

Oldsmar Trail

nice ride

Trail is long enough with a mix of paved and gravel trail. Next to the ocean, not busy, Recommended.

Lake Jackson Trail

Jackson Lake

April, 2022 by iammykl

This was a relatively flat sidewalk run that circumnavigates the lake. I started on Golfview Drive and went left. From here, you have the lake on your right and constant traffic on the left. Fortunately, there was a burst of rain as I started my run in the mid afternoon when it was really warm. At about three miles I was hot and needed to cool down. With the shore so close to me, I was seemingly deterred from approaching the shore because there were "private property" signs posted at every boat dock along the way. Nevertheless, this did not stop me from cooling off at the third mile.

I approached the clear water and made sure there were no dinosaur-type creatures lurking below before sticking my hand in the water. After dousing myself with cool water, I was able to carry on again. I am not a road runner and the concrete was a challenge for me as I was running in my Nike Terra Kigers. I walk a few times but this was primarily due to the heat. I didn't bring any water to drink and no calories to ingest. I pushed on, though. At the half way point, the lake is well behind giant houses with lavish exteriors and sprawling yards. This portion was rather delightful to see.

I saw a few runners going in the opposite direction and I waved. They waved in return. At the six mile point, I steered myself to a small beach and again doused myself with water. This was refreshing. Then I cruised again on the concrete pathway. At mile eight, the houses disappeared and the lake returned. The wind pushed against me and the sun burned my face, but I kept running. Up ahead, a street sign said, "Golfview Drive at next light." Hopeful, I pushed on. I reached the finish line, but realized it was about 9.8 miles, so I kept going until I got 10 miles. Time 1:39.

Courtney Campbell Trail

Used To Be Great

April, 2022 by cheryllightning

These reviews are pretty dated. There are two sides of this trail separated by a bridge in the middle. The Clearwater and the Tampa side. The Clearwater side up to the bridge is nice and peaceful. Not a lot of pedestrians. There is a place along the beach to park on the Clearwater side, but it's expensive like $3 for one hour.

After the bridge, you're on the Tampa side. Here's where it goes downhill (no pun intended). It didn't used to be like this. I've lived here for 7 years.
When I first started riding on these trails, their wasn't too many people on them. They understood trail etiquette. You could get a good workout.

The Tampa side was always a little busier, but lately, it's gotten ridiculous. Tons of walkers and SLOW bikers who won't move over no matter how many times you call out. No trail etiquette. Kids play in the middle of the trail and their parents could care less. They let their kids run out in the middle of the trail no matter who is flying by.

Those two parts of the trail are only 7 or 8 miles long before you have to cross traffic. The park at the end on the Tampa side is dangerous if you're not paying attention. Cars do not watch out for pedestrians when turning into the park. In Tampa, in general, cars have NO respect for bike riders or pedestrians.

The trail continues on, but you have to cross a few dangerous intersections. You get to a concrete trail alongside the bay. It's hard to see around the corners, so you can't ride too fast. Again, not the best for road cyclists. It continues after the intersection that goes to the Hyatt. This last part of the trail is very bumpy. Not a smooth ride unless you have a cruiser or mountain bike.

If you're a serious road cyclist, I wouldn't bother coming here. It will be hard to get a good work out.
