Rode all the way from the south end (near 372 and 98 intersection) to Sopchoppy and back. Parked just slightly east of the water tower as described by the last reviewer. Although the trail parallels 372 the entire way, traffic is minimal, especially once in the Wildlife Reserve, very peaceful. As the last reviewer stated, the trail is continuous, no break as shown on the map.
First time on this trail Jan 2020. Great trail for a good leisure bike ride. Well maintained and a wide paved trail with bike maintenance stations at several locations along the trail.
It’s a nice area around the lake but not a nature trail at all.
Good area for some training runs. Only good hill section is the bridge over the turnpike. Some sections of the paved route are being pushed up by tree roots so be careful if doing any night running. Also street crossings across Neptune Road can be a bit adventurous and time consuming. Not all the street crossing buttons work. No parking at the end of the route in Saint Cloud but I park at Partin Triangle Park and then jump on the trail since I live on the Saint Cloud side.
This is one of our bike from home routes. The interesting thing is that you have the Biscayne Trail from Old Cutler down to Black Point on 87th Avenue. That's true and correct, but it's only the start. It then becomes a gravel, levy trail from Black Point all the way to Card Sound Road. That levy trail was designated the Biscayne Trail before the 87th Avenue section. You can opt to turn around at the entrance to Biscayne National Park or continue on down to Card Sound. I do not recommend riding on Card Sound Road, but you can turn back up the levy, or you can choose to ride up Tallahassee Road which is dirt road down there and goes back up to the motor speedway but you are no longer on Biscayne trail then. We rode these routes for decades before it was ever a designated trail. Great in the winter months for bird watching and spotting crocs and gators. There are often also manatees in the cross canals near the water gates.
We rode the trail on January 2, 2020 and found that the trail is continuous from Sopchoppy all the way to the end at highway 98 and 372. There is no break as the map shows. The trail is paved all the way and is about six feet wide or more. We only saw one other rider. Two GPS's showed the trail to be 9.9 miles long.
The easiest way to find the southern end is to locate the water tower. There is a covered picnic area and a huge parking lot almost underneath it at the trailhead. There's also a porta-potty concealed behind a wooden screen.
At the north end in Sopchoppy the trail starts just southeast of the Dollar General on the south side of 319 and does not extend into town. The railroad museum and its restrooms are only open on Saturday and I suspect they wouldn't appreciate someone using their very limited parking for 2-3 hours for a bike ride. On of the closed days there shouldn't be a problem. There's a park across the street with some parking and locals said to just park off the road anywhere but in a business's lot. There are restrooms at the Exxon station and the Dollar General and these places would also be a good place to buy a drink or snack for the road.
We usually park at the trail head on Hwy 98 on the lot of the former, famous Oaks Restaurant. If you’re from these parts, you know about the Oaks. (Garlic butter in a shrimp boat with a boat-load of crackers!! Yum.) The ride over to Sopchoppy is beautiful. Sometimes there are broken beer bottles on the path, and sometimes some yahoo is parked on the path, but otherwise - and usually - the trail is really nice. If there is a headwind, the ride is much tougher (for me). Also - sunscreen and hydration are a must. Enjoy this trail; we certainly do!
I took this as a diversion to the East Central Trail only a short ways. It was only a wide sidewalk right next to a very busy road with many intersections. Maybe this will one day be a good connector or maybe it gets better towards Sanford but for now it's not worth the effort. Hard to see how Florida can call sidewalks trails. I guess it's better than riding on a busy road with no shoulders.
My kids and I tired about 6 miles of this trail today. We started in Dunedin to Honeymoon Island back to Dunedin our to Clearwater Beach and ended back where we began. It was about a 26 mile loop. We stopped at local spots to picnic, stretch, and snack. It was a delightful way to spend the day! We live far away, so we rented bikes at Kafe Racer. We usually ride road bikes, but I’m glad we did the hybrids as they were great on the off road sections we explored on Honeymoon Island. The staff there were excellent. I really enjoyed this section — yes, it had interruptions. Yes, it was busy in spots.
The trail over the Clearwater Causeway is big and sweeping. It’s well signed. It’s definitely loud, busy, and along traffic. I really enjoyed moving at least twice as fast as the cars slowly making their way out to Clearwater Beach. The East section has steep climbs. This isn’t an “easy” ride. The stretch up onto the causeway is a spiraling corkscrew. Fun, but might make you just a little dizzy!
We parked at Fisherman’s Village walked to the 41 bridge. Lots of bikers and walkers and dogs but the path is wide enough for all of us. We will go back. We went out to eat downtown and then had ice cream at the other end. Next time we will park over there and walk the other way. More parking. Highly recommend.
Black Water Heritage trail in Milton, FL. is a flat, short (10miles - one way) trail that winds through Milton and then ends our near the Naval Aviation area. It’s an easy, fun little paved trail, away from traffic and the noise of the highway.
