Lake Apopka Loop Trail

Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

Nice Trail

April, 2021 by tagnrocky

We accessed this trail from Wall Springs park in Palm Harbor where there was plenty of parking. Rode north to Tarpon Springs. The trail was pleasant and separated pedestrians from bikers on separate paths in congested areas. We rode to the sponge docks but could not find any bike racks to lock up our bikes. A nice trail.

Hammock Road Trail

A good walk/run/bike trail

April, 2021 by wcprpsgt

The listed distance is probably too high. My tracker came up with 2.74 miles and I realize it can be off a bit, but probably not a mile. Anyway, this trail is a well maintained asphalt trail, six feet wide. Most of the trail has limited vehicle access, except on the east end. Five benches are on the trail. Much of the trail is shaded. The only drawback is the very east end that crosses US 27, which is very busy. This trail is a good connector between Highlands Hammock State Park and Lake Jackson. Public parking is only available at the west end of the trail.

West Orange Trail

Very nice trail. The ride is off the road. It's shaded in a lot of areas. It's good for beginners and intermediate riders. I ride this trail regularly.

Courtney Campbell Trail

Very nice. It connects to several other trails nearby!

Kissimmee Trail Loop

It’s a “Meh” Trail

April, 2021 by rtdutton

I didn’t find this trail very interesting. Another user had said that it felt like “an alley” and this is true for the section between Hoagland and John Young where it closely passes homes and apartments. The rest of the trail between John Young - Central and the southern section by the airport seem barren. The trail does connect to Shingle Creek and additional trails which are definitely worth visiting. Overall, this is the least interesting bike trail I have traversed in Florida. I will return to West Orange and Cross Seminole trails before biking this one again.

Coastal Anclote Trail

My New Close-to-Home Favorite

April, 2021 by dsterf62

I rode this trail on Sunday with my niece. We started at Wall Springs on the Pinellas Trail, heading North, took the spur trail at Tarpon Springs to Dixie Highway, crossed Alt 19, and made our way onto the Coastal Anclote Trail.

We rode every bit of the paved trail surfaces, and as much as I like the Pinellas Trail, I think I might like this new trail even more. I plan to do the whole ride again next Saturday or Sunday, but this time I will use my gravel bike and hit all the unpaved trails I can, as well. When I want mileage and exercise, I will take the Pinellas Trail, or make my way onto the Starkey Gap and Starkey Wilderness Trail. But when I want to clear out the mental cobwebs and brighten my day, I will ride this trail.

I highly recommend you spend an a few hours exploring these three parks and this trail system. Canopied paved trails, hard dirt trails, walking paths, parks, the Gulf, elevated observation towers, boardwalks, playgrounds, clean restrooms, picnic tables & kiosks, animals, flower gardens and butterfly gardens, the Coastal Anclote Trail has it all.

Take your time and soak up all the beauty this trail, and these parks have to offer.

Kissimmee Trail Loop

stay away

April, 2021 by cponzo

This is more like an alley between what are not nice areas.. felt unsafe. Plus the pavement is in bad shape

Skyway Trail

Great Vistas

April, 2021 by jwlald_tl

If you start at the southern end near the I-275 rest stop, you can combine this with the Pinellas Trail for a 20+ mile out-back ride to downtown St. Petersburg. Beautiful vistas of bay, Skyway Bridge and downtown St. Petersburg. City needs to improve the signage at key intersections, especially at the intersection of Skyway and Bayway trails.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Decent trail with lots of space to let it unwind

March, 2021 by timmyb1957

Went here for the first time in March of 2021. I can only talk about the first 12.5 miles going north from the Polk City trailhead.

Overall, the trail itself is in decent shape. It is a bit bumpy from tree roots (only occasionally) and also has some big dips where the ground has settled under the trail. Most of this is in the first few miles.

The trail was relatively well-maintained. No real issues as far as big potholes or trees encroaching.

The first crossing is about 3 miles in and it is a very desolate road, so you can ride for a good ways without stop-and-go. The second one in at about 5 miles needs your full attention. A very fast moving, busy two-lane highway with no flashers to alert motorists that you are crossing.

There are no restrooms at the trailhead, so if you need one before your ride, you're better off to stop at the convenience store before you get there.

Overall, we'd go back but we'll go to the next trailhead up so we can see a different part of the trail.
