Rode the trail today parking at the visitor center (5533 Alabama). I rode north thru BWHT and the Military leg. Very enjoyable and well maintained. Water fountains and bathrooms available along the way (did not test the fountain or facilities). Rabbits, snake and squirrels in abundance. On my return from military base gate I rode past the visitor center south across Hwy 90 (difficult but with pedestrian signals). It is a nice activity bringing some diversity to a regular Navarre Beach day. I did not take advantage of the visitor center but from signs I felt it was open. I would ride this trail again and again.
I was surprised how isolated the trail was! It was very surreal !! Plenty of wild life and fresh air!!!
One with nature, smooth, wide trail. Love it.
It was a beautiful ride however several sections are in need of repairs
This was the day I was going to do the complete greenway, including both disconnected sections. I never got on the east section because the end point was Rt. 84 and Anglers, and as I pedaled up 84, I didn't see an Anglers intersection. I knew I had missed it by the time I got to 441, but what the hell, I kept going. Bad choice, because that's when 84 turned into a superhighway with ginormous trucks roaring by at 80 mph. I finally made it to University and got on the west section, which I was already familiar with. Only when you get maybe a mile past Flamingo, you hit construction which includes no more access to the greenway. I'm again going up 84, this time on the south side against the traffic. More racing cars and apoplectic trucks. Did make it to Markham at last, but by then I was so tuckered I only did one lap. I think I'll wait a few months before trying again.
As a long time user of the Withlacoochee State Trail I noticed the pavement over the past 10 years has been neglected. The paved surface is extremely bumpy and somewhat dangerous especially at the north end of the Trail. Passing other riders is dangerous because you never know when an edge pothole is going to take you out as you pass. In addition, it seems riders on this trail like to spread out making passing with available pavement dangerous. What ever happened to the rule "keep right". I would go somewhere else to ride.
Just moved here from Pasco County on the west coast of Florida where I was spoiled by the Suncoast / Starkey trails. Only been on two trails, St. Aug to Palatka (which i found depressing, and annoying playing frogger across two 4 lane divided highways and a stretch next to a manure plant).
This trail was a breath of fresh air though. It's mostly wooded, and sheltered from the winds for the most part. There are two spots to get fresh, clean, cold and GOOD TASTING water. Being creative with the routes to get 30, 35, 40 and 50 mile rides.
Only complaint is that there are sections that are very bumpy, and until you find the right lines you're going to get rattled around on a road bike with narrow tires...
There are 2 crossings over public roadways but otherwise a nice ride! Would recommend going during the week as I suspect the trail will be more occupied with Rinus over the weekend. Very tranquil lots of trees which blocks the sun making the ride more enjoyable.
Wonderful people safe and beautiful marked trails with with informative naturalist information. Can’t wait to try it in the fall and spring.
Loved the trail and I rate it as 3.5 stars for a trail to visit. As a roadie and as a local, I would give it 5 stars. Few crossings so you can cruise (speed limit is 15 mph).
Did not see the water fountains every mile, but many restrooms (port-a-johns).
Kind of a boring trail for some.
Did see 3 rabbits, 3 tortoise a black racer snake and I believe 4 scrub jays.
Ive read some of the other reviews and as for me?...Orlando and Orange County are doing great with getting trails in place. Seminole County should learn from them. This trail is pretty awesome if you live nearby you can jump on and off and get just about anything you want if you know the area. If you just visiting stay in Baldwin Park and enjoy all they have to offer.
