The trail was fabulous, paved and winding along Lake Minneola. I would love to give our experience 5 stars, but several trail users made this impossible. We had been looking forward to biking this trail on our cruisers and traveled over an hour from Seminole County. We came on a Wednesday afternoon.
The posted speed limit on the trail is 15 mph and those directions are to also use the right side of the path.
Most of the bicyclists were riding touring bikes and exceeding the speed by a considerable amount. In addition, only two out of the more than 40 touring cyclists alerted us when they passed us. Because we didn't hear them coming, a collision nearly resulted in one case. We noticed that several pedestrians and a couple of other bicyclists were also startled at different times by these cyclists with some riding at speeds we've seen when they ride along the highway.
Another issue was people walking in groups spread across the entire path. I was nearly involved in a head-on collision with three cyclists because A walker who was spread across to the far left side of the trail did not yield despite my calling out 3 times "ON YOUR LEFT!" I had no where to go but into a pole or a park bench until she finally moved to her right. At that point I was able to see the other cyclists feet away who were only able to pass just inches from me. It could have been a big mess of bikes AND pedestrians.
Earlier we heard a jogger telling other groups to "break up" due to the same situation. No one walking seemed to hear him either.
I'd like to think that people just aren't thinking about how their use of the trail affects others. I really don't like to believe people are selfish and inconsiderate. Regardless of intent, however, there were at least three incidences that we personally witnessed or were involved in during our one and half ride in which we or others could have been hurt pretty badly.
In the interest of public safety it seems that the trail should be monitored, warnings given to abusers and fines imposed if they choose to continue to behave without concern for others.
the trail has been extended on the southern end and now it's 9+ miles and ends at Plymouth Avenue instead of Denton Avenue
Fun ride, well maintained paved surface. Several points of interest along the water. Saw nesting bald eagles. Nice to ride away from the highway noise. Highly recommend this beautiful trail.
Beautifully laid out trail with benches strategically placed and restroom facilities. Fabulous area to view nature in all its glory!
Great little trail with plenty of shade, ample parking and spectacular sunset viewing opportunities from either of the county park trailheads.
The trail is paved and there are great views the entire way. There are parks along the way and places to eat. Such a relaxing and beautiful ride.
I live 5 min from this trail and my family and I have gone bike riding and running on it. I just picked up roller blading as a way to change up my fitness. If your into biking and running this is the trail for you but if you like rollerblading I would recommend another trail. I parked in the fitness parking lot and skipped going over the bridge. I would rank the road here about 6/10 lots of cracks in the road and the pavement is uneven in most places I would assume because of tree roots but it’s still good for rollerblading. I made a right at the crossroads to head toward the dump. This part of the trail is terrible. Very rough for rollerblading.
We used the new, temporary parking just off 2850 List Road, the entrance to the only on weekends Wildlife Loop for cars. This temp lot is open daily and you can walk your bike through the opening left at the gate. However, the wildlife on the trail and the fact that it's closed to cars during the week makes up for it. We rode to Limpkin Point. The trail varies in comfort, sometimes a bit rocky, definitely not for road bikes. We took about an hour, stopping to see the wildlife and scenery. There are clean port-a-potties at the pump house and close to the trail entrance.
FFYI - was there on the weekend. The start of the trail on W Cypress St is closed, suggest you park in Courtney Campbell parking sites to walk the later part of the trail
The parking lot is a little crazy, but fear not 90% of the crowd will be using the many many off road trails. Park in the second lot, and remember the off-road trails start under the arch, but the pave trail starts at the restrooms. We found no open restrooms after the trail head, so be prepared to be self sufficient. The end of the trail is just a culdesac with no services. There are very few access points along the trail, but a huge number of intersecting horse and off road bike trails.
Completed the largo to Clearwater section and detoured to the beach for lunch. We drove from Bradenton and parked at Scott Taylor park -It had bathrooms and connects to the trail. Will definitely do this again but wanted to share how to get there because I looked for others that might have detoured to the beach for lunch and didn't see exactly how to do it. Follow the trail from Largo to Clearwater and take a left at turner street. You will see the sign that says "to beach" follow that! ( we didn't do that and ended up riding with traffic) It has a paved sidewalk with a yellow strip on the side with signs to show you the way. You also mostly stay off the road this way. Also--this will keep you away from traffic on this side that goes over the Clearwater bridge. When you get to just before the roundabout- use the crosswalk to walk over to the right side of the road and take the roundabout north. We wanted to have lunch right on the beach at frenchys Rockaway grill. You are on the sand with umbrellas! It was magical. Turns out there are several frenchys restaurants - so go for the "rockaway grill". There was also the Palm Pavillion restaurant but it has a patio and you aren't directly on the sand. This was a decent ride and the only hard part was the hill up the bridge- we walked some of it. Not that bad but we were out of shape. We originally were thinking we biked about 7 miles round trip. Turns out it was 13 total. We were shocked because it didn't feel that long. The ride is close to one hour each way. Not including lunch- which we spent about 1.5 hours! We didn't want to leave it was so perfect. I hope this helps someone who was like me looking for help to plan a a detour to the beach. Definitely doing this again! bridge.
Great Trail! smooth surface, lots of curves and gentle grades made for a very pleasant ride. We have ridden trails across the country and would rate this one behind only the Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills and the Heritage Trail in Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore in Michigan.
