I was happily surprised to see a new section of this trail open, south of Oak Ride. There’s a good length that you can travel south all the way to Sand Lake Road. Beware a section that is being repaired just north of LB McLeod … but it’s possible to walk your bike past in the travel lane when clear. I do wish there was more signage overall
Fanatic trail, gorgeous views, and will recommend to everyone¿¿¿¿
Rode with 9 other recumbent rides (CRABS) on a beautiful day, starting in Winter Garden to the Horse Park near Apopka, returning to WG, then on to Killarney Station & back to WG for a nice 30+ mile ride. Beat the rain as well.
Besides a deluge of Biblical proportions during our ride, the trail was awesome. Some street curb cuts to negotiate but plenty of shade and plenty of places to get out of the rain, unless you are a ways away. Its Florida, its warm, so getting rained on is not the worst thing in the world when you are hot. Winter Garden is an awesome place to get your lunch or dinner after your ride. Lots of places to part to take your bike on and off the car. The various stations around the trail are also clean and have helpful Staff. Love this trail.
When we Winter in the Beautiful State of Florida we try and get to this great trail every year!
Rode the trail this morning and it is a nice ride. Low grade hills and mostly shaded. However, there is no potable water or open restroom either at the Brooksville trailhead or where the trail meets the Withlacoochee Trail. Restrooms in Brooksville are closed due to vandalism.
It’s a nice trail but needs some tlc! The views are nice and we had the trail all to ourselves.
We rode this trail from Maximo Park to the entrance to the fishing pier. Bikes are not allowed to the enter so we turned around. The trail could use some tlc as some of the shrubbery along the trail is growing up & over the trail. There’s also a lot of little debris on the trail from the highway such as pebbles, trash and just grit! It’s noisy but the views are worth it. Not much shade but a nice ride.
Had a really nice ride. Jack Willie’s Bar & Grill is an awesome place to eat!
We started at south end in Polk City and biked 8 miles north. There is plenty of parking and a restroom about .5 mile in. Nice wide trail with benches along the way. Plenty of tortoises! We also saw turkeys. We crossed a dirt road and a major 2 lane road on this section. 1/2 mile markers are painted on the trail. Mostly shady and so quiet-only heard the birds. Asphalt trail was mostly smooth but did have some bumps and rolling areas. I would bike it again if in the area.
This trail is definitely relaxing with the natural wildlife makes it wonderful. A straight well maintained asphalt bike trail. A great spot to ride your bike and not have a care in the world. Not a heavy over populated trail with tons of people who don’t know the rules of biking. Lots of shade riding the 30 miles one way. If you don’t like serene, middle of nowhere type of trails, then this is not for you.
Nice place to go since trail is shaded. Twigs and branches are in trail so difficult to inline skate at times. The bathrooms are filthy!!!
