Well paved and maintained! Very flat and not much to look at. Usual FL wildlife, we did spot TEN gators in the drainage creek alongside the path, which was cool! No shade, only one little store 5 mi from McDonald’s parking, so bring your own nutrition, water, & sunscreen!
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.
Pretty trail that begins at the zoo parking lot and ends in a beautiful neighborhood. These is no parking on the neighborhood side.
Basically, everything that he said was what I would have put in my review. Martin County (1/3) is better than St Lucie County (2/3) because of surface, shade, AND proximity to road. On the Martin side, you are probably 50-60 feet from traffic for most of it; on the other, you are about 10 feet. As a cyclist and a runner, the dips take a toll on your legs if you are not paying attention with every step. It would be very nice if they could extend this trail to the north across Walton Rd. and run along that for awhile but money's probably not there in today's budget. I'm also concerned about long-term maintenance. There's a big hole off to the side which actually touches the paved trail where they've put up a sawhorse to warn people from hitting it. So far, that's been there for quite a while with no sign of anything being done to repair it.
It's a nice place for locals, like me. It's nice to see people using it regularly. However, a round-trip is only eight miles, so don't spend a long time driving here to use it.
It is a beautiful spot if you are into wildlife. There is a pond right by the bridge which is at the county line and that pond has seen alligators, otters, wood storks, great blue herons, roseate spoonbills, and various others this spring!
My son & I enjoyed this trail. It’s scenic and clean. We took many breaks just to take photos. Tips: this trail doesn’t have restrooms, use it before going. Bring a first aid kit (thankfully I did since my son fell off his bike) & bring water. Overall, we’d recommend this trail.
My son & I love this trail.. very scenic & clean. We took a ton of breaks just to take photos & enjoy the fresh air. We’d highly recommend it. Please be prepared with a small first aid kit (my son fell off his bike, glad we came prepared), water bottles, & be advised no bathrooms are available at this trail.
This route is probably only about 9.75 miles or a bit longer. I walked it and that's what my Garmin said. Garmin could be off a bit, but probably not by 3/4 of a mile. Anyway, this route could use a few park benches along the way, as the only two places to rest are the two parks on opposite sides of the lake. Parts of this route could be run, but parts have many street crossings and driveways that make running difficult. I would not recommend bike riding along the three miles that front US 27 on the west side (although some ride there). I have walked and run many trails and I rate this one average. I think this route has potential to become a better trail with a bit of work.
Not a fun ride. Not sure how this is in the rails to trails guide, it would be fine if you needed to commute to work. All you hear is traffic and not much to see; trail is a little quieter once you get to the school. A lot of the pavement has roots, asphalt is in need of repair and there are poor transitions to the streets. Caution on the crosswalk as some cars ignore the crosswalk signal even while the lights are flashing. Lots of better trails to choose from in FL

I rode this trail today and it was really nice. The surface is packed sand and I had no problems riding on it with my smaller hybrid tires. In 15 miles I probably only had 5 total cars pass me . The scenery was very nice along the water and through the jungle. There were some areas with homes along the way.
My wife & I rode this trail today. We loved it. We parked at the Pelican Wildlife Refuge & rode south the entire length & back. 15 miles in 1.5 hours. Very few street crossings, a few bumpy spots.
This is a very flat trail with good, wide pavement. The westerly half is particularly rural, skirting large cattle ranches with oak hammocks. There are no trees for shade. There are many birds on this trail - hawks, herons, killdeer, kingfishers, storks, egrets, etc. - and the occasional alligator. It’s a good trail for spinning. Be sure to wear sunscreen.
Trail is average.. no much to see.. 90% of the trail is next to a busy road... Trail is not road bike friendly... ok if you have mountain bike.. I will not recommend!!
