Love this place, so much wildlife and such a beautiful breezy ride. Wasn’t sure how to get the the other trails though? We decided to turn around at pump house, that was enough for us seeing as though we are beginners.
Totally appreciate the Suncoast Trail for its excellent surface conditions and length. There are cold water stops and a few benches along the way that provide a place to rest and refuel. A great trail to maintain fitness on a bike, jogging or walking. Summer rides should be accomplished early as possible during the day as it can get quite hot by midday on. Wind will be part of these rides on most occasions so be prepared and budget your ride accordingly. Afternoon shade develops eventually as the sun angles to the west. Adding Starkey Park Trail will add about 6.5 miles one way if you go all the way to the park‘s entrance at Starkey BLVD. The northern end of the Suncoast has some small rollers while the southern portions of the Trail remain flat. Adding the Upper Tampa Bay Trail portion accessible from the Lutz Lake Fern Trailhead parking lot to Van Dyke Rd and incorporating all of Starkey Park’s Trail you can do a Century Ride using the entire length of the Suncoast Trail to Ponce de Leon BLVD Parking lot and back the parking lot on Lutz Lake Fern Rd. For long or short bike rides, the Suncoast Trail is one of the best in Florida.
Rode this trail a couple times. It just seems to be a collection of three circles that intertwine. You just keep going in circles or in my case, connecting two loops with a figure 8. Confusing trails here. This trail is okay. Surfaces are good and plenty wide but not very pretty.
My favorite trail
We had walked at Santos on the forest trails and always enjoyed the beautiful forest. After it was paved we decided to bike it. We did our first ride yesterday. Beautiful ride, great pine smells and birds singing their songs!!
We rode the entire trail and enjoyed the variety of northern Florida scenery--forest, farmland, and swamp. Some sections parallel the highway but are separate from it with only a couple of well marked highway crossings. Our only question is -- where are all the people?? There were so few riders out on this pretty Sunday afternoon. Not complaining. Just saying.
Rode the Van Fleet RT Feb 21-22, 2020. Combined with the semi-rural
Aburndale TECO trail the distance is 35.6 miles. If you like nature you'll
love the Van Fleet. Fully paved with mowed lawn on sides, then cypress
swamp and longleaf pine forests of the 322,690 acre Green Swamp Preserve. Saw a bobcat, a small snake and plenty of birds. From Park on
SR 33 in Polk City there's access to Aburndale trail going south and the
Van Fleet north. Parking at north end in Mabel take 121st Ave off route 50,
a 100yd long lumpy dirt road to nice parking area.
Rode entire length northbound on a Thursday morning in February. Busy trail: walkers, road bikers and many recumbent bikes. Trail was in very good shape with occasional short bumpity sections and a few divots at edges. Lots of benches. Well marked. Easy to find trail access points. Beautiful park in Inverness. Would definitely ride again.
Well signed. A few hills. We took the short side trips to see Paynes Prairie State Park sights. Trail side tools and air pump was a plus. Some road crossings but generally they were little used roads. Busier towards Gainesville side on a Saturday morning. My wife and I would definitely do it again.
Very nice, wide trail with lots of beautiful views of the lakes. Also there are opportunities to go off the trail into the town of Clermont. Some reviewers commented about the hills... there are some decent hills for Florida on part of the trail, but they're not bad.
Easy to ride and it has beautiful scenery. I had such a nice ride I didn't I had gone over five miles. I will most definitely be back
We rode the entire trail from Dunnellon to Dade City. Wonderful ride with plenty of benches, if needed. Don’t miss eating at Southern Harmony Cafe. Great food and great people.
