We were in the Vero Beach area so we rode the trail one morning after a rainstorm. Note that if this is the case, the sand/dirt trail might have some puddles on it. Some we were able to ride around and others we had to get off our bikes and walk through since we didn't know how deep they were. We parked and started at the Pelican Wildlife Preserve which worked out great with restrooms access. The rest of the trail is pretty woody through the hammocks and not really much to see until you get to the golf courses where you can see the backyards of large houses. Since we went in late June, it was hot, humid and sunny. Since we live in Florida, we were prepared but bring your water with you, there are no stations that we saw. We passed 3 cars the whole ride with one local flooring it down the trail splashing mud everywhere in her Volvo. We also got behind a lawnmower near the gold course. It was a nice ride and we can say we did it but not one we would go out of our way to ride again.
Well paved and maintained! Very flat and not much to look at. Usual FL wildlife, we did spot TEN gators in the drainage creek alongside the path, which was cool! No shade, only one little store 5 mi from McDonald’s parking, so bring your own nutrition, water, & sunscreen!
Pretty trail that begins at the zoo parking lot and ends in a beautiful neighborhood. These is no parking on the neighborhood side.
Basically, everything that he said was what I would have put in my review. Martin County (1/3) is better than St Lucie County (2/3) because of surface, shade, AND proximity to road. On the Martin side, you are probably 50-60 feet from traffic for most of it; on the other, you are about 10 feet. As a cyclist and a runner, the dips take a toll on your legs if you are not paying attention with every step. It would be very nice if they could extend this trail to the north across Walton Rd. and run along that for awhile but money's probably not there in today's budget. I'm also concerned about long-term maintenance. There's a big hole off to the side which actually touches the paved trail where they've put up a sawhorse to warn people from hitting it. So far, that's been there for quite a while with no sign of anything being done to repair it.
It's a nice place for locals, like me. It's nice to see people using it regularly. However, a round-trip is only eight miles, so don't spend a long time driving here to use it.
It is a beautiful spot if you are into wildlife. There is a pond right by the bridge which is at the county line and that pond has seen alligators, otters, wood storks, great blue herons, roseate spoonbills, and various others this spring!
My son & I enjoyed this trail. It’s scenic and clean. We took many breaks just to take photos. Tips: this trail doesn’t have restrooms, use it before going. Bring a first aid kit (thankfully I did since my son fell off his bike) & bring water. Overall, we’d recommend this trail.
My son & I love this trail.. very scenic & clean. We took a ton of breaks just to take photos & enjoy the fresh air. We’d highly recommend it. Please be prepared with a small first aid kit (my son fell off his bike, glad we came prepared), water bottles, & be advised no bathrooms are available at this trail.

I rode this trail today and it was really nice. The surface is packed sand and I had no problems riding on it with my smaller hybrid tires. In 15 miles I probably only had 5 total cars pass me . The scenery was very nice along the water and through the jungle. There were some areas with homes along the way.
My wife & I rode this trail today. We loved it. We parked at the Pelican Wildlife Refuge & rode south the entire length & back. 15 miles in 1.5 hours. Very few street crossings, a few bumpy spots.
This is a very flat trail with good, wide pavement. The westerly half is particularly rural, skirting large cattle ranches with oak hammocks. There are no trees for shade. There are many birds on this trail - hawks, herons, killdeer, kingfishers, storks, egrets, etc. - and the occasional alligator. It’s a good trail for spinning. Be sure to wear sunscreen.
This was an incredible ride! From the Bridge all the way to US1. This is a pavement and Gravel trail. I did 15 miles round trip to US1 and back over the bridge. I thought I was going to die going up the bridge on the way back. This is my longest ride to date. Been riding for 3 weeks now. Really enjoyed this ride today.
This trail is well maintained and is perfect for riders of all levels. There is also ample parking and a welcome center. I saw a family of deer and a large amount of flora.
I really liked this trail. It’s paved and wide. I wish there were bathrooms available though.
