Bridge closed just east of the 6 mile marker. No indication when it will reopen. A fun ride with a few small hills. Cross the road a few times but there is a traffic control at each crossing. Many shops and restaurants along the path.
My husband and I ride recumbent trikes, and I was looking forward to this trail. Our plan was to go from one end to the other and back to Topsail. The park we did was not trike friendly, and about 7 miles into the ride the trail was closed, so we were forced to turn around and cut our ride short- planned on 40 and got 14. The neighbor around are interesting, but many are gated.
Nice trail along the road. No shade at all so bring sunscreen. Was hoping for a few more options for snacks along the route, cafés, sports bar, something. There was a small gas station and one small restaurant that’s it. Lots of nice homes to look at while riding. Ends at a state park.
Rode the trail yesterday. Parked at the welcome center for Gulf County but signs for the trail were poorly marked. Had to ask a couple of people before we were able to find it. Some nice portions to the trail that ran through several neighborhoods but very disjointed. An average trail at best.
This is an outstanding trail. Smooth asphalt. Signals for road crossings. Discovered the conservatory and even more trails. They are compacted gravel and not for road bike. Will be back. Ended up with 30 miles and didn’t do all branches.
My husband and I walked the trail from the rail museum to the river and back today. Very nice trail to walk. We will be back to walk the north end very soon. Such a nice use of the old track. I wish we had one in our town.
Came from the east end of the trail. Parked across 98 where there was a little mall. Pretty well kept the whole way and goes through Seaside, Alys Beach, Watersound, etc. It does get very busy with foot traffic and when we went there were a bunch of high schoolers who had rented bikes so avoiding them was...interesting. You can take neighborhood roads off the trail to avoid some of the heavy foot traffic areas and also see some of the beautiful houses in these neighborhoods. The places in between the towns and to the west of the busy areas are great. Lots of places to stop and grab a bite to eat if you like.
We started out at Grayton Beach State Park it cost 5.00 to park ,it has restrooms and beach access. This is in the middle of the trail. We wanted to take our time so we divided it into two days, Day 1 took us down the trail which follows the road , there is about a 4 foot divider between road and trail in most places. You cross over the road a few times but at crossing system that alerts drivers to stop and let bikes and walkers across. You will pass many rental homes,stores and Restaurants. If you are there early you can have a great coffee at the Bad *** coffee company. We stopped several times along the way at stores and went to the end and went to Stinkys Restaurant for lunch. Very Good. Then made our way back. Day 2 Went to the East it was very crowded lots of bikes and walkers. In one spot you have to get off your bike and walk thru, this is by the park that has many Food Trucks. This trail crosses over the road a few more times then the west side. Shops and Restaurants all over. Take your time and enjoy the trail.
We started at Salinas Park, has a bathroom, beach access and a boardwalk. It is riding along a road that is not very busy. There are some shops and restaurants to stop by and enjoy. You are mostly out in the sun on this one , be sure to take water with you. Enjoy
the trail at Sam Adkins Park at the bridge has boards across it and is closed at this time. There is also a tree on the bridge as well. So skip this area for now
Nice wide paved paths in a safe area. Some of the paths are in scenic wooded areas. Hopefully they’ll expand the trails in the future. Take the path to the west and check out Conservation Park. Miles of dirt trails, some smooth enough for our cruisers. It’s a beautiful place. We did see a big cat cross the paved path behind us as we were leaving.
Great trail, busy beautiful!!
