We drove 1.5 hours e/w to ride this trail. Had a wonderful day,l! This rating is for our overall experience, not just the trail. Even though it was a sunny Saturday, it was not crowded. We drove over in a 25’ Class C motorhome, Bridge toll to island is $6 for cars and $11 for RVs. Found a free place to park around 18th. Later saw RV/Bus parking signs around 5th. Rode our e-bikes down to the state park, through downtown, past 2 lighthouses, stopped to sit on the beach. $2 per person for bikers entering state park. Sunset drinks followed by dinner at South Beach Grill which was great. Beach/restaurant not dog friendly so we left our pup in the RV, but the trail and overall experience were great and one of our faves so far!
Although it is very straight, the landscape on both sides is beautiful, so unlike what I’m used to in the upper Midwest. Everyone on the trail is super courteous. It’s perfect for a 10-12 mile workout. And we always see some amazing birds when crossing the Coral Creek.
We did this today, we took a right at 1st intersection, which took us into the “new tamps nature trail”. After turning around and getting the correct route, it was wide, open and flat!!!
If you are looking to use a racing bike and just get a ride in, this would be the trail. It is a smooth ride and well maintained. It is not for the casual rider. There isn’t much shade, water stations or even stops. You will find a noisier ride since you are paralleling a major highway. The one great surprise is at approx 4 miles north of 56, you will find an entrance to Starkey Park where you can take a peaceful ride in the park.
This trail winds through 2 parks and you are either in the shaded woods or on the water, where you can see dolphins playing. Worth riding on to Philipe Park too
This trail is underwhelming compared to other trails in the area. But as a connector trail on a route, or as a commuter trail it is fine. Just not worth going g out of your way for
My wife and I have ridden this trail many times and have always enjoyed it. We usually park the car at the Publix parking lot (Alt 19 and Curlew road) adjacent to the trail and from there one can go North or South for quite some distance. We have ridden all but the last northern 4 miles of this trail (46+ miles) and really enjoy the beautiful, well maintained trail. There also multiple other trails off of this main trail. Our longest round trip ride has been 38 miles. I highly recommend this trail.
This trail is a very nice , well maintained asphalt trail. The trail provides users with different terrains and exposure to different types of wildlife. I highly recommend this trail.
The Oldsmar trail is a beautiful trail that takes you through many parks and provides many waterfront views. The trail is well manicured and gives the rider/hiker a variety of beautiful landscapes.
Fanatic trail, gorgeous views, and will recommend to everyone¿¿¿¿
Perhaps I didn't go the right direction on this Trail but I walked it and it was all concrete. There is almost no shade in this is back in August so I was miserable on the white pavement.
It’s a nice trail but needs some tlc! The views are nice and we had the trail all to ourselves.
