Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

Consider skaters

January, 2019 by dragonflyby4

This is a great lengthy trail. I have gone from head to head (more than once) and skate portions in between quite often. I want to love this trail but I can say that skaters were not considered with the surfaces and the upkeep. I have a roller derby team and we actual have an adopted mile on this trail and I often take the team out for trail skates, but I will say most of the members could not manage the rough surface that makes up most of the trail. Curious on how to get more involved with the trail to better help engineers consider all athletes.

West Orange Trail

A little bit of everything

January, 2019 by rwest1

Pros: easy access, clean, well-maintained and numerous restroom/pit stop/playground areas, Winter Garden (cool town with lots of energy), varied scenery (neighborhoods, town, golf course, highway frontage section, ball fields), great for families, excellent trail markings (if you got into trouble or have a mechanical, it is very easy to tell someone where you are).

Cons: if you’re a serious cyclists there are too many slow sections (through town) and intersections to post a solid effort, two sketchy areas where it wouldn’t be wise to get off your bike, crowded in parts (not dangerously though-folks we passed were respectful and moved to the right), the northeast end of the trail was not well marked and we couldn’t figure out if we were lost or the trail had ended.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Pleasant Surprise

January, 2019 by rwest1

We are avid cyclists and have thoroughly enjoyed this trail two times in the past year. The trail is well-maintained and we saw park patrol out and about during both of our trips. If you’re looking for a solid workout this trail is perfect. Minimal traffic, only a few intersections to cross and flat as a pancake. There are restrooms at both ends of the trail and at least one in the mid-point of the trail. Water fountains are sparse so make sure you’re carrying nutrition and plenty of water.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Now open from Tapestry to 192 - January 2019

January, 2019 by ctamplin

They have opened the section that joins the two pieces shown on the map. Thus one can join the trail at the Tapestry development off Dyer Blvd and go all the way to Kissimmee Lakefront or to Pioneer Village. Great addition. Looking forward to them finishing off the northern section up to Osceola Parkway next as they acquired the easement rights in 2018.

Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

enjoyable!

January, 2019 by walker9323

Nice trail! North of Tarpon Springs is a bit boring, but the entire trail is very well maintained!

Flatwoods Park Trail

Neat place

January, 2019 by tcreevanrn

I’ve been quite a few times, always nice. Lots of wildlife even saw a gator off the trail a few 100 feet or so. Not a place to go if not biking or riding something, few picnic tables. It’s somewhere I go without my kids and take them to other parks that are more kid friendly. Water stations along way, air pump and clean bathrooms

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Outstanding Beauty with much wildlife sightings!

January, 2019 by utpaduke

This beautiful trail has 4 parking lots @ the 0-10-20-29-mile markers. On 1Jan, Tom and I rode from Mile 0 @ the Polk city parking lot to Mile-15 out and back. We saw several box turtles and a few Gators in the water! On 2Jan we parked @ the Mile-20 Parking lot. Rode out and back to the 29-mile marker, then back to the 15-mile mark out and back! We saw quite a few more box turtles sitting out front of their burrows; if I parked bike and tried to get close for pic, they would quickly scurry back into the burrow! We enjoyed watching one cross as fast as she could from the opposite side of the trail back to her burrow... Saw a gator happily sunning self on side of trail! This trail rides primarily alongside a swamp on both sides... it is awesome if you like a natural setting with only 3-4 total rural road crossing. All mile markers are painted on middle of the pavement! We came from NC to get away from cold Jan weather---this trial was a perfect choice for two days of riding. Benches with bike tools and Trash cans are provided along trail. It was extremely clean! Although trail has some age, the pavement is not "rooty" I highly recommend this gorgeous 29-mile rail-trail ride! I just might come next winter for another two-day out-back ride on this trail!

Good Neighbor Trail

A Short But Nice Trail

December, 2018 by tonyjeeratuntasit

Nice well paved trail. The new extension is particularly pretty.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

no asphalt that I saw

December, 2018 by chemmenway

We came in on the north spur and headed east. If I knew how bad the road was I would have been better prepared. We started out on hard-packed gravel which wasn’t too bad, but as we traveled east, the road deteriorated to a bumpy semi-paved trail. This was much worse than the gravel. We had to slow to 10-12 mph. After we let some air out of our tires, it was a little better but had to closely watch the road for bumps and holes.

West Orange Trail

Almost perfect

November, 2018 by buffettbike

Rode various portions of the trail over the course of three visits to complete the whole trail. From Killarney Station to Vineland-Apopka Station is still the best bike trail in Florida. Skip the part from Vineland-Apopka Station to Lester Road. Even so, this trail deserves 5 Stars

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

Hidden Gem

September, 2018 by virgil2

The Eastern part of this trail is paradise lost - some really spectacular views - it slowly becomes ugly the farther west you travel. Has some hills (for Florida lol) - it's nice to go in here to the shade after the Courtney Campbell. The only thing lacking is a water fountain and restroom. I'll do this trail over and over and enjoy the views everytime!

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Nice Bike Ride

September, 2018 by kirby.lastinger

Rode from Green Pond trailhead and except for a few rain showers it was a great ride.
