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.

West Orange Trail

Great trail

September, 2018 by markbarndollar

Beautiful trail. Started in Apopka and ended in Winter Garden where my girlfriend and I grabbed lunch and rode back to Apopka. Not many bikers for a Sunday afternoon.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

Wilderness galore

August, 2018 by janskinj

Let's clarify - the name is a misnomer, it is not a loop. It is out and back on same path. Plentiful gators, up close and personal. We planned to stop at covered picnic area to find it populated by a few 4 footers. Fortunately, they scattered as we approached on our bikes. Needless to say, we sat atop the table back to bak to ensure a 360 view. Much larger gators in water and crossing path.
Love that there are long stretches to allow you to gain speed or cruise and take in scenery. We spotted an owl, soft side turtle, cougar prints and more.
Nice place to get out int he wilderness without travelling far.

Good Neighbor Trail

Withlacoochee State Trail

Enjoyable trail ride

August, 2018 by zurstadt

We used Inverness as our start/finish since the parking is perfect and we love the town of Inverness. The trail is well maintained with a good blend of sun and shade. Well marked and a good feel of “Old Florida”.

What happen

August, 2018 by dannyg748

Been riding this trail for over 15 years and it's been a very good place to ride until about a month ago(06/2018 when everything change.The weeds along the trail haven't been cut,the trail has weeds growing in the cracks,the trash cans are always full of trash,and the bathrooms are a mess,no toilet paper,trash on the floors,toilets plugup.The bridge near the Polk City trailhead has been under construction for over a month.Maybe they should bring back Ross.He got the job done.

Spring to Spring Trail

Wonderful Trail

July, 2018 by randycroce

We are new to riding in Florida, and after searching Trailink, I found that this awesome trail was only a few miles from our place. We decided to park in Osteen and take the south end of the trail, before crossing over the bridge over 415. The trail is well maintained with bathrooms located in all of the parks which the trail rolls through. Our overall experience was a wonderful experience. Meeting a few turtles, road runners and yes, some really nice humans too along the way was pretty cool. The aqua colored Sulphur spring was incredible to see as it seemed to actually glow. When we rolled into Gemini Springs, it was amazing to see the large fish swimming below us in the crystal clear waters. The final destination was the added trail around Lake Monroe, which had it's share of sunlight, and but also had much more of Gods Balconies to shield us from the sun. Because of the weather, we had to cut our ride short on day one as we barely got back to our car before the storm hit. Day 2 was a perfect day with loads of sunshine, so we started at the northern end with plans to cover what we hadn't seen on day one, but ended up riding the entire trail once we got rolling. Thanks to all responsible for this wonderful trail.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Trail scenery and Lake View = SPECTACULAR

July, 2018 by lualra

I visited this Bike Trail for the first time yesterday AFTER our typical afternoon rain showers. Luckily for me Sun came back out, Trail was nice and cool. The views from the trail and the lake are AMAZING! Great Leg Workout too. Little hills in Florida - who knew?!?!? LOL

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Lator Gator

July, 2018 by heochief

WOW I can not say enough about this trail. We rode all 29 miles of it from end point to end point for 60 miles total. The trail is totally flat. No incline at all. The trail wisp through marsh lands, Wooded land, Pasture fields and small towns at each end point trail head. There is plenty of shaded areas however the areas in the sun can get quite hot for long stretches. Lots of water is required for this ride. Along the way we say 6 10 to 12 foot alligators one 4 footer and numerous baby's about 1 to 2 feet long. We saw them from one of the many swamp overpasses. We saw none on the path or near it. The ones we saw were close to us but below us. We saw numerous turtles, pelicans, cows,panther,numerous style birds. The trail is about a 50 minute drive from Clearwater and we did that in rush hour. There were nominal places to eat or water fountains in comparison to typical trails. The trail is maintained well. There are sheltered areas to cool off about every 5 miles. The trail was also pretty well traveled the day we were on it. Still it was a pleasant ride. This is a great trail and I rank it 5 stars. I have traveled across the country on great trails. This is in my top five. Just be prepared for the unexpected and bring water. Limited food too.

East Central Regional Rail Trail

Osteen to Green Springs

June, 2018 by cwright402

We packed lunch and headed-out to the Osteen Community Center on Hwy 415. Parking and restrooms are excellent. We went west over the pedestrian/bicycle bridge and rode approx 6 miles to Green Springs. Easy ride with about half of the trail covered by a canopy of tree limbs. We visited the Springs and then had lunch at a park bench by the boat ramp over-looking Lake Monroe. We then rode the 6-miles back. A very easy-going enjoyable 12-mile ride. I will return to do the complete ride on the east section of Osteen and then turning back west and ride past Green Springs on the one-way 12-mile ride at a higher rate of speed. Must be a great kept secret as there were only a few people out on a Saturday!
Thank you for the trail.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Cross Seminole Trail

walking

May, 2018 by logancody247

Good shade well maintained but mileage is poorly marked. Boombah softball field is a good rest stop with rocking chairs, shade and clean restrooms. Walking is fine not much of bike path due to all the stops.
