Biked the entire trail twice this week. Trail is well maintained but there are some places where tree root upheavals may create problems with your bike if you approach them too fast. Most of these have been marked with bright orange spray paint. Advise not to bike too fast so you can see the bad spots in the shady areas. Otherwise a scenic and pleasant ride. Thank you for providing this great trail!
We just finished riding this entire trail. Is it perfect no, but it’s definitely rideable, an a lot less crowded than others. It is maintained but it’s mainly covered by shade tress, so guess what? There are leaves, a corns and root upheaval. If you can’t handle that then I suggest sticking to riding exercise bikes in the comfort an safety of the gym. If I can do it on a 26in mountain bike pulling a 4 yo in a trailer (75lbs total) an average 11mph. Anyone with a road or hybrid should have no issues. Scenery wise this trail is beautiful. And although not perfect in terms of conditions, it’s well worth the trek.
I've read other reviews and hope then I will give readers as objective a review possible. My wife and I went to Madison Florida to visit friends and ride the four freedoms trail. We are in our 70s and ride at an average speed of 9 mph. We took two days to ride this rail trail in its entirety. The trail is best referred to as a canopy trail. For the most distance, the trees provide a cool pleasant ride. Yes, there are some problems that one experiences. Tree debris and surface debris. I met parks and recreation rep who indicated and demonstrated that efforts are being made to repair the trail. If you are a speed rider don't go right now. If you would like a lovely ride and are willing ignore some faults this trail is a must.
I rode this trail on July 14, 2017. I should have believed the reviews. The trail is in severe neglect and you should not attempt to ride it on a road bike. I suffered a flat at mile 10.5. The trail north of Pineta is in the worse shape. Many tree root upheavals. Lots of debris from tree limbs. At approximately 3 miles south of Pineta I encountered a fallen tree blocking further progress on the trail. I was required to dismount and walk on private property to get around the fallen tree. It looked to have been there more than a couple of days. It was obvious that this trail is not maintained on a regular basis. I will not return. Too many other good trails in Florida to waste time on this one. Ride this one at your own risk...
We parked at the Capital Circle Trailhead, where there are bathrooms, a water fountain, a pavilion, and a nice bench area.
Heading south, the trail is wide and smooth, with trees on either side, providing shade but not much "tree debris". The section along the Woodville Highway has a lot of road noise, but further down the trail, it runs along a less busy road and the noise drops off. The trail runs past older residences, and a few businesses. We turned around after 7 miles, but will definitely come back to explore the rest of the southern section another day.
Heading north from the Capital Circle Trailhead, the trail is obviously older, with a yellow center line. This section has few trees, and runs by businesses such as used car lots, and is not very scenic. The trail ends at a street, across from a working train yard.
This trail is a treasure to the region, and we look forward to returning again.
It's hot in South Georgia during August, so ride this trail in the morning. There is a good bit of shade but about 1 and 1/2 miles are out in the open. Best place to park is at the Lower Meigs Road trail head. It's a nice parking lot, but no restrooms. You can go north to downtown or south to the airport from here.
We started at the downtown end and road south to the airport. The portion from downtown to around the West View Cemetery really needs some attention,i.e. garbage strewn along the trail, broken glass and grass over-growing the edges. After that rough part, the trail was very nice and is used extensively by walkers, runners and bikers. Crossing US-319, a major four-lane highway, was all right, if you pay attention and use the crosswalk which has signals. The first mile after crossing US-319 is out in the open with a number of driveways and road crossings, then it slides back into the trees until you reach the airport. Shady and peaceful along this part.
Overall a good ride, (we did the entire 15 miles out and back.)
We loved this trail. We rode it mid-day in July and were able to keep a decent pace because of the abundance of shade. Bring your drinks and snacks because there aren't stores on the first 10 miles. We will be back to ride the whole trail when time permits.
I enjoyed the trail for the most part. It was mostly canopied and had some elevation changes to add some interest. Nothing too steep, though. But along with the tree canopy comes the asphalt upheaval from the roots so it was pretty rough in places.
If I could add half a star, I'd give 4 1/2 stars for this event. The trail is very nice, much of it wide enough for three abreast. The "trail proper" is attractive, intermittently shaded, and well off the road. As mentioned in the reviews, connecting trail areas are somewhat less appealing. Also, I agree that trail signage could be improved, as well as adding numerical addresses for trail heads.
The apres ride aspect of Moultrie's square? 5 stars! Lunch at Three Crazy Bakers (wonderful!) and interesting boutique shopping around the picturesque courthouse square. Pick up BBQ to go on the way out of town at The Barbeque Pit. Last stop before Valdosta? Peaches in Barney!
all cleared w/i 48 hours of major storm debris. we see the same folks often. 32 miles from Woodville head to St Marks r/t.
Three of us rode the four freedoms trail this weekend. It's was a beautiful clear day. The trail is in pretty good shape except for the part just south of pinetta. On that stretch of the trail there are a lot of bumps from tree roots. We were not planning a fast ride so slowing for the bumps was no problem for us. In Pinetta there is a small park with public bathrooms. They were very clean and newly painted. The trail went through some beautiful country and we found the ride very enjoyable. The trail crossed the road several times and a couple of times the trail was essentially a very wide shoulder of the road. We didn't have any trouble finding where the trail went.
While some parts of this trail are ok for the most part the trail needs some serious maintenance done as tree roots are tearing it up. It even caused a flat. So not happy with that.
