We’ve biked this trail before. It’s always a pleasant ride. Excellent weather today. Some of the trail is covered and some open.
Very nice and enjoyable ride. Only suggestion would be to mark it better!
Clocked 3.3 miles from one end to the other took some side trails on way back. 6.8 total. Granted I didn’t do all of the sides but there is no way this stretches to 15miles. There are also “speed bumps” throughout. Probably some type of drainage solution. They weren’t bad but worth noting
Mostly secluded, good canopy of shade, wide trail you can ride two abreast on your bikes, goes all the way down to the Gulf Several nice benches for resting along the way; also restrooms spaced along the trail and several parks, Wakula Springs is a 5 mile detour if you want to go swimming, excellent for mountain bikes or racing bikes
Easy ride. Seems safe. Mostly shaded. Plenty of restrooms along the route, not sure of cleanliness of all. Worth it especially for endurance training/vacationers.
This is a great trail that connects east Tallahassee and Southwood community to the St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail. (Access to the village of St. Marks - 16 miles to the south and the university/capital’s downtown area). The surface is excellent asphalt. The landscaping by the city is beautiful and well maintained. Water fountains are placed along the trail. Very few cross-traffic intersections to navigate.
This trail has something for every skill level for mountain biking. It is also an excellent walking trail that meanders past dikes, and has a beautiful bridge with great views.
We rode this morning and encountered a handful of other riders and 1 runner. Great 12 mile trail. Thank’s to Trinity Lutheran Church for the parking. The path is in great condition and the trees made the feel like temperature 15-20 degrees cooler. Can’t wait for the eventual connection to the sea.
A very wide gravel trail with plenty of shade, hills and great scenery. There’s a bathroom and water stop in the middle.
We walked this in two different sections. The first time we started in Madison, where you have to just park on the side of the road, and walked almost to the picnic area just outside of Pinetta. The next time we parked in Pinetta at the parking area in town by the picnic tables and restrooms and walked to the river and then back to the same picnic area outside of Pinetta. Most of the trail is very shady, which is great in our southern heat. If you are heading to the river, be sure and spray with Off or some other type of bug repellent as the biting flies can be pretty bad at times. Wish I could figure out how to upload my pictures because it is really a pretty hike.
From beginning to end the ride took about an hour each way. The shade and rest spots along the way were a welcomed reprieve from the sun and gave us a chance to apply more sunscreen and drink some water. The ride takes you past numerous pastures and livestock. Shady oaks cover most of the trail. It was a bit difficult to find parking. We ended up parallel parking on a residential street.
The Four Freedoms Trail is a pretty 12 mile trail that parallels a state highway for much of the way. A strip of trees provides a buffer from the road noise and wind. It has several sections of oak canopy and traverses some very pretty countryside. The final two plus miles north of Pinetta are more isolated and do not parallel the highway. Unfortunately, as others have pointed out, the trail is poorly maintained. I rode my road bike (with cyclocross tires) on today's ride. There are numerous tree roots, some potholes, sandy spots, and a lot of debris (leaves, twigs, branches) on portions of the trail. The majority of the trail is doable for road bikes but the section immediately south of Pinetta (miles 7 to 8.5) is very rough and is best suited for mountain bikes or hybrids. The trail has great potential if someone from the state or county is willing to take care of it.
