Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Nice Trail

February, 2020 by jstasey

We rode from southern terminus 10 mikes north and back on a Saturday afternoon in January. Plentiful parking there. Trail is tree lined on both sides. Includes mile markers. Ample covered benches and bathrooms. Miles 12-13 were a little bumpy from tree roots. Moderate usage but never crowded. Most road crossings were lightly traveled. Overall, a really nice trail.

Ochlockonee Bay Trail

Nice Trail

January, 2020 by long.ja

Rode all the way from the south end (near 372 and 98 intersection) to Sopchoppy and back. Parked just slightly east of the water tower as described by the last reviewer. Although the trail parallels 372 the entire way, traffic is minimal, especially once in the Wildlife Reserve, very peaceful. As the last reviewer stated, the trail is continuous, no break as shown on the map.

Ochlockonee Bay Trail

Map Error

January, 2020 by jmurchison

We rode the trail on January 2, 2020 and found that the trail is continuous from Sopchoppy all the way to the end at highway 98 and 372. There is no break as the map shows. The trail is paved all the way and is about six feet wide or more. We only saw one other rider. Two GPS's showed the trail to be 9.9 miles long.

The easiest way to find the southern end is to locate the water tower. There is a covered picnic area and a huge parking lot almost underneath it at the trailhead. There's also a porta-potty concealed behind a wooden screen.

At the north end in Sopchoppy the trail starts just southeast of the Dollar General on the south side of 319 and does not extend into town. The railroad museum and its restrooms are only open on Saturday and I suspect they wouldn't appreciate someone using their very limited parking for 2-3 hours for a bike ride. On of the closed days there shouldn't be a problem. There's a park across the street with some parking and locals said to just park off the road anywhere but in a business's lot. There are restrooms at the Exxon station and the Dollar General and these places would also be a good place to buy a drink or snack for the road.

Ochlockonee Bay Trail

Local Favorite - Beautiful, back road

January, 2020 by sonja.guthrie

We usually park at the trail head on Hwy 98 on the lot of the former, famous Oaks Restaurant. If you’re from these parts, you know about the Oaks. (Garlic butter in a shrimp boat with a boat-load of crackers!! Yum.) The ride over to Sopchoppy is beautiful. Sometimes there are broken beer bottles on the path, and sometimes some yahoo is parked on the path, but otherwise - and usually - the trail is really nice. If there is a headwind, the ride is much tougher (for me). Also - sunscreen and hydration are a must. Enjoy this trail; we certainly do!

Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

One of the best trails in the country

October, 2019 by stathamross

I typically ride this trail very early on Saturday mornings, from just south of Capital Circle trailhead down to St Marks and back. It’s a real joy to ride.

It’s heavily shaded, in very good condition and with clear mile markers. Major road crossing at about mile 9.7 or so, as well as a few others marked on the map. Scenic and a joy to ride, with ample opportunities to kick it into high gear if that’s your thing. The St Marks mile marker says “16” but it’s actually 15.75 miles.

As with any longer ride, I strongly suggest you bring rain gear, a pump, extra tubes and basic tools, as well as snacks and two water bottles.

Very good idea to put flashing lights on your front and rear to get the attention of drivers at road crossings, especially since you may get a little zoned out after a few hours of cycling, and since some drivers may run a stop sign or otherwise cause issues even when you have the right of way. Also good to wear orange!

Good solo ride, duo or group ride. Flat and mostly straight. And fun.

Georgia Florida & Alabama Trail (GF&A Trail)

nothing not to like about this trail

May, 2019 by tabbtracy

this is a very easy, flat, paved trail that is good for walking, running or cycling. there was no one on the trail when we went. and i didn't find it very shady, as another reviewer found.

overall there is nothing not to like. it's just not the most diverse landscape but aside from that, a good, fairly short trail.

Ochlockonee Bay Trail

some observations

April, 2019 by jbalin

The northwestern start of the trail is at the Dollar Store in Sopchoppy. I suggest you park at the old train station/museum two blocks west, which also has modern rest rooms and water. There are NO facilities (not even a bench) along the trail. There is one trail head at the intersection of the trail and US 98.

Blountstown Greenway Bike Path

Trail cleared since Hurricane Michael, not as much shade

April, 2019 by deniseables

This is an easy trail and the town people are friendly. Hurricane Michael devastated this area. Riding this trail will make you realize how powerful a category 4-5 hurricane really is. Blountstown is more than 60 miles from the coast and Michael still landed a major blow here. Hats off to the folks that cleared this trail! Still nice but not as much shade for reasons you will discover!

Miccosukee Greenway

bike trail

Great trail for hilly terrain and good views.

Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Roller Blades

September, 2018 by schilker

Great for marathon roller blading. I would like to see the State of Florida add mile markers.

Goose Pond Trail

Okay, but not great for roller blades

September, 2018 by schilker

The trail is easy and fun for a family day out. However, the path may not be ideal for roller blades. Parts of the path might be wet or have sand/dirt across it. Having said all of that I would still go back, 1.3 mile trail is a great distance for rollerblades (we did a down and back twice)!

Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Nice Ride

August, 2018 by 01bicycle

Overall surface in great shape. Saw only a few riding all day. If your looking for speed you can ramp it up pretty good on this straight shot to St. Marks. Just pay attention at 4-5 roads crossing the path along the way.
