Great Trail. Very smooth asphalt path. 90% of the trail is in the sun. Farm animals visible from trail. It connects to the Suncoast Parkway Trail at Gunn Highway and Suncoast Toll Road. Address for parking lot is: 7020 Lutz Lake Fern Rd. The parking lot is practically right across from Seed World. Parking cost 2 dollars for all day, card or cash accepted. Full trail length is actually about 5 miles from one end to the other. Water is provided along the way but due to thirsty people be sure to bring water with you. I hope you enjoy yourselves!!! ¿¿
First time on this trail with my wife. Generally run 30-40 miles at a time on our Bents. Parked at the northern end which has a $3.00 self pay station. Seemed pretty safe with the highway traffic going by, more of a chance people will see and report incidents? Started out hilly and not much to view paralleling the highway, very hot so we turned around after five miles. No water stops up to that point or at trail head. A composting toilet would be a great thought for the trail head. (had to drive 5 miles to a grocery store for facilities) Decided to follow the trail from the highway and survey the sites. State Road 50 trail head had a great restroom facility but parking lot was secluded which made me nervous to park my vehicle there. The trail followed the highway the majority of the distance with what looked like little to no shade for most of the way. I would recommend this trail to those that are training for races but not for the casual biking trip. Definitely carry water on this trail and spare tube for emergency purposes. There are other trails that are more family/casual rider friendly.
Been on many paved trails from PA to FL. This rates as one of the best. Great scenery and solitude, wildlife everywhere! There are stretches where you will see no other cyclists for miles, especially early in the morning. Make sure to bring a tire repair kit.
This trail was a great start to our vacation as it is flat and about 22 miles long. We enjoyed the whole thing which has about 750 ft. of elevation change. Best part is Winter Garden which is a beautiful town with a couple of fantastic bike shops and lots of places to eat. It is about 6 miles in from the western end of the trail. Also loved the West Orange Bikes and Rentals as they set us up with great bikes for the week.
Now let's not get too excited, we are talking about 900 ft of climbing over 32 miles but it is nice since most everything else is flat. Great trail, segregated the whole way, easy to ride. Goes through Clermont which has lots of places to eat, some right on the trail.
We also did the Hancock extension to get the total miles up and it has a terrific view. Highly recommend this trail.
We started at the Mabel end because we wanted to get water at Green Pond and Polk City. There is no water at Mabel. Lots of shade, lots of animals on the trail. We were surprised that the trail outside of the State Park were just as good for viewing.
We saw lots of gators especially from the three bridges 2.5 miles north of Green Pond. We saw at least 5 gopher tortoises, a pileated woodpecker, vultures and deer along the way. Trail is in great shape but bring enough food for the whole day. Well worth the trip.
You can park at Veteran's Park. This trail is a nice 10 mile ride, however, I will say that it is definitely all sidewalk. If you are planning on riding your "road bike" ...don't !! If you do, you can ride in the road for part of it but the roads are very busy and then there is about 3 miles of the trail running along Hwy 27 which is very noisy & not enjoyable. Because of this, I took my bike with hybrid tires instead. No clip in pedals because there is too much stopping/starting. On Hwy 27, cars are wizzing past. Definitely no way to ride your road bike on roadway there. The sidewalks are at times, uneven and blocked with tree trimmings, etc....There are many driveways and cross streets to watch for. Pay close attention here for moving vehicles. I was able to follow the trail just fine around the lake but there are no markers to keep you on track. Just follow the lake. I made two rounds in about 1.5 hrs.
I rode this trail today (3/19/2018) and it is so pleasant. I stopped in Brooksville and had an expresso and muffin at Mountaineer Coffee. What a nice downtown square. Parked at the train depot museum with great bathroom facilities. The trail runs further than the map reflects today. The trail runs all the way east on Richbarn Road to the Croom WMA. I hear that this trail will be a part of the east west connector. So very pleased with the ride. I will watch for the extension into Croom WMA and return. After the ride I drove down to Dade City for good country cooking at Steph's Southern Soul Restaurant.
The trail which is wide and in good shape leads directly past Spectrum Field where the Threshers play and in March you can catch Phillies spring training games. Also very convenient for commutes to St. Pete College. The path is broken up by frequent cross streets with adequate signage and a signal at Gulf to Bay, but riding some portions at night would not be advised due to poor or little lighting. More suited for casual rides, walking or skating.
Got on at "The Long Center" on S. Bellair Road. Fun ride to Safety Harbor. You pass the Phillies spring traing facility, so if they are on the practice field there will be a few guys with gloves waiting for a home run. A couple of decent climbs, one is over a 4 lane roadway. Safety Harbor is a beutiful place with a boardway to the bay. We locked our bikes up at the hotel /spa, bike rack outside. There is a GREAT sandwich shop at 3rd & Main, get a seat outside if you can. Great for all levals of ability.
Road this trail with 2 other couples. Started at Gulf to Bay and road towards Tampa. Such a great experience. Very easy for all levels. Do not be frighten by the mid ride bridge, it was constructed to be a easy climb. Whiskey Joe's at the end is a nice reward. Only complaint, does anyone in this state say "on the left!" It is aways a surprise when you get passed. This is the same on ALL the trail we have walked or ridden in Florida in the last two months.
Put this on the bucket list, you won't be disappointed.
