I rode this trail today (3/19/2018) and it is so pleasant. I stopped in Brooksville and had an expresso and muffin at Mountaineer Coffee. What a nice downtown square. Parked at the train depot museum with great bathroom facilities. The trail runs further than the map reflects today. The trail runs all the way east on Richbarn Road to the Croom WMA. I hear that this trail will be a part of the east west connector. So very pleased with the ride. I will watch for the extension into Croom WMA and return. After the ride I drove down to Dade City for good country cooking at Steph's Southern Soul Restaurant.
Ride this trail every morning. On a warm day after a cool night, lots of birds and big iguanas north of Yamato. The Yamato crossing was precarious but by observation the tunnel under the road seems finished (still some barrels there on Mar 18). This will make the almost 5 mile run very nice. I'd park at Costco, go around the back and catch the beginning (north end).
The trail which is wide and in good shape leads directly past Spectrum Field where the Threshers play and in March you can catch Phillies spring training games. Also very convenient for commutes to St. Pete College. The path is broken up by frequent cross streets with adequate signage and a signal at Gulf to Bay, but riding some portions at night would not be advised due to poor or little lighting. More suited for casual rides, walking or skating.
Got on at "The Long Center" on S. Bellair Road. Fun ride to Safety Harbor. You pass the Phillies spring traing facility, so if they are on the practice field there will be a few guys with gloves waiting for a home run. A couple of decent climbs, one is over a 4 lane roadway. Safety Harbor is a beutiful place with a boardway to the bay. We locked our bikes up at the hotel /spa, bike rack outside. There is a GREAT sandwich shop at 3rd & Main, get a seat outside if you can. Great for all levals of ability.
Road this trail with 2 other couples. Started at Gulf to Bay and road towards Tampa. Such a great experience. Very easy for all levels. Do not be frighten by the mid ride bridge, it was constructed to be a easy climb. Whiskey Joe's at the end is a nice reward. Only complaint, does anyone in this state say "on the left!" It is aways a surprise when you get passed. This is the same on ALL the trail we have walked or ridden in Florida in the last two months.
Put this on the bucket list, you won't be disappointed.
Rode this trail yesterday, end to end. A great trail but... when I returned to my car at the Roberts Lane parking lot I discovered my car window shattered. Nothing was stolen, just pure vandalism. Park somewhere else.
I recently rode my bicycle on the part of the trail from Cross City to just past Old Town where the bridge across the Suwannee River is. It is a wonderful ride... an easy, scenic ride. Can't wait to do it again and ride on even more of the trail.
Just a caution that much of this trail goes, or will go, thru areas popular with hunters, in season.
My buddy and I road the full length and back (40 miles) this month, 3/2018. Due to the length of this trail the number of bikers/walkers were spread out so was not at all croweded. The flooded area mentioned by previous review has subsided and is not an issue. We would love to see a timeline on when the east trailhead to Palatka portion will be completed. It appears work is in full swing and even on Saturday the crew was working. This is a great trail with only a few road crossings except for in Keystone Heights.
Rode from Titusville to Edgewater, 33 miles of bicycle trail. The only impediment is a bridge under construction along Maytown Rd and it looks close to completion.
This trail is right down Hwy 17, so you have the auto noise constant. The path has alot of root growth so its not smooth, and the condos and subdivisions along the trail use the trail to walk there dogs on the trail, the smell on the southern part of was very strong. Not my favor-it trail.
Nice trail overall, the crossings, I hope they can improve on. A bridge a tunnel or a direct path would be nice. The scenery was beautiful as it was my first time. It was a cool morning so not much Iguanas, thank goodness. I did not make the connect past Lyons rd, more signage would be nice. I looked at the map but it didnt work out as planned, I was tired anyway, so I just headed back home. If they could add better crossings, improve the Lyons road connect and add more rest stops, it’ll be perfect. 8/10 as is.
