Courtney Campbell Trail

Courtney CampBell trail

June, 2024 by tiffanyblack5

This was our first time and we came on Fathers Day Sunday and arrived around 12pm and parked at Ben T Walton beach I think it was called and it was perfect spot to unload our e-bikes and ride. Parking was $7 for 4 hrs but we were done in 2 but it was really nice and the breeze off the water kept us cool! We were gonna hit the beach after but we needed to get home but u def could have done both! Also we loved it because there was hardly anyone on it :)

West Orange Trail

Great Trail

June, 2024 by wade.lanier

Scenery: 4/5
Shade: 4/5
Condition: 3/5
Crowdedness: 3/5
Amenities: 4/5
Road Crossings: 2/5
Signage: 3/5

This is a great trail, but it's not perfect. It meanders through several cute neighborhoods, towns, and wooded areas with a diverse array of pleasant scenery (woods, charming homes, open vistas, etc.). Stations and outposts all along the trail provide better amenities than most other trails. With just a few exceptions, shade is ample. The trail is very popular and can get quite crowded, especially between the end point at Killarney Station and the Apopka-Vineland outpost. Once you get past the Apopka-Vineland Outpost (heading east from Killarney Station) and turn north, the crowd really thins out and it's much easier to travel. Naturally, crowds are heaviest on weekends and when the weather is mild. The trail is in good shape for the most part, although there are places where it is noticeably bumpy due to root incursion. My biggest complaint is the number of road crossings - there are a LOT. Some of them are very busy with automobile traffic, and some of them are quite rough. All in all, though, it's a very pleasant trail, and I would certainly ride it again. It's important to note that this trail is relatively long. I have ridden the entire trail, and my observations apply to the trail as a whole. Some observations may not apply to certain sections of the trail.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Among the Best in Central Florida

June, 2024 by wade.lanier

Scenery: 5/5
Shade: 4/5
Condition: 5/5
Crowdedness: 4/5
Water Availability: 3/5
Road Crossings: 3/5
Signage: 2/5

This is one of my favorite trails in Central Florida. In this area, the West Orange Trail is the most popular, but I think the South Lake/Lake Minneola Trail beats out in terms of scenery and crowdedness. Except for the portion of the trail that follows the shoreline of Lake Minneola, shade is ample. It is less crowded than the West Orange Trail, except for the portion that runs through the lakefront park on Lake Minneola. This is understandable given the nature of the park. The crowded stretch is manageable as long as you take it slow and are patient, and it's relatively short compared to the rest of the trail as a whole. The scenery both through wooded areas and along the lake is great. On the western end, the section through Lake Hiawatha Preserve is beautiful albeit very short. Beyond the Preserve (heading west), there's not much to see. The trail is in very good shape, but there are a good number of road crossings. Overall, a really great trail that, in my opinion, is more enjoyable than the West Orange Trail.

Hancock Trail

Description Says It All

June, 2024 by wade.lanier

Scenery: 2/5
Shade: 1/5
Condition: 5/5
Crowdedness: 5/5
Water Availability: 1/5
Road Crossings: 1/5
Signage: 3/5

Skip this one if you have better options. The description pretty much says it all: not much scenery (almost entirely suburban), hilly (for Florida standards), no water, no shade. On a clear day, there is some scenery at the northern end where you can see Lake Apopka and the Orlando skyline on the eastern horizon, but rampant development is quickly wiping that out. There are a lot of road crossings, some busy. Virtually all of the trail parallels a rather busy, noisy road. The trail is in good shape (except for a few spots where roots have created bumps - mostly on the southern end), but I'm not sure why the description says that it is 14 feet wide. There may be short sections where that is the case, but mostly not. The trail is not crowded at all, but, given its shortcomings, that's not surprising.

Town-n-Country Greenway (Hillsborough County)

enjoyable

May, 2024 by jesuslorenzana

It might be short and might need more benches but one thing for sure is beautiful and if you walk along the Sweetwater Creek between you can see stingrays and manatees swimming. I recommend it.

Tampa Riverwalk

This section of trial was alive with people and activities on a Saturday evening. Walking was perfect, too crowded for anything else.

Neptune Road Recreational Pathway

on its way to something good

April, 2024 by sharon_wb

The northern portion is gorgeous with Waterview to the west and a nice ride through beautiful parks. I went a little further and did the regional trail just north of this one and it was absolutely beautiful but very short. The section after the high school heading north is dangerous for unsteady cyclist. The local community is actively working to improve this 3 to 5 mile section of trail Once that is complete the trail will be quite nice. The majority of the trail is a double wide sidewalk, so it is not good for a zone four or five ride. It is perfect for a leisure zone 2 ride. The Northern section is excellent for a family bike ride. On my way back heading south. I avoided the double wide sidewalk and rode the generous bike lane until it ended.

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

Good for running

April, 2024 by joenad55

Jogged the length of the trail recently in two separate runs. The bay portion very scenic, other parts tree covered and provide some shade. It goes through a couple of parks where there are benches and water fountains.

Duke Energy Trail

Nice trail

April, 2024 by joenad55

Well marked trail. Do have to cross over Drew St and 60, which can be a bit hazardous. Out in the open, no shade. Connects to the Ream Wilson Trail at the ballpark.

Withlacoochee State Trail

BEAUTY of a Trail!

March, 2024 by nume0112

On Easter, we parked in the Hernando lot and drove south to Floral City, before returning! Scenery ranges from beautiful partially shaded trails, several lakes and waterways, turtles, and alligators. LOTS of potential restaurants for a break (seafood, pizza, ice cream, etc.). We sat on the deck at Stumpknockers (5 blocks off trail) for an horsdoeuvre and bevvy! This portion of the trail was 29 miles round trip. We’ll be back to do the Northern portion!

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

Lots of wildlife

March, 2024 by bannerman

Pick a cloudy day and maybe a mountain bike. Lots of gators and birds. We started from the green mountain trail head and I would start at one of the other trailheads instead. They spent so much on the trail head that there is no money to maintain the trail and the first two miles are extremely rough.
