Duke Energy Trail

Done

August, 2022 by dsterf62

The trail was opened today, Friday, August 6.

There are some minor details that need some attention, and the gap at Tampa Road that needs a Bicycle / Pedestrian bridge over Lake Tarpon Outfall Canal, but for now, there are safe detours available. One is as follows:

At the corner of the trail and Tampa Road, face North and cross the road at the light, then turn East and cross the Lake Tarpon Outfall Canal using the sidewalk at bridge. Beware of glass. As soon as you see Five Guys restaurant on your right in the Booth Ranch Shoppes, look for a little informal footpath behind it under the elevated section of McMullen Booth Road. Follow the footpath it about 300 feet North as it dumps out into a series of connecting parking areas for several residential apartments. Work your way North thru the parking lots and soon enough you will see the trail again, on your right, adjacent to McMullen Booth Road. This will take you all the way to Keystone Road, where it will merge into the Tri-County Trail, and on to a series of trails all the way across Florida. Please be courteous when using this detour, people live here.

Duke Energy Trail

Darn Near Done

August, 2022 by dsterf62

I was on the new North section of the trail today and saw a lot of progress.

From Sunset Point Road, I rode the trail all the way to Keystone Road and did not have to divert once. There are still two road crossings that need the signal lighting to be powered and programmed, some areas needing clean-up, signage and marking, but the pavement was all in place, and they were working to cast concrete curbs at key locations.

When I spoke with the contractor's superintendent, he told me that his company had opted to double the construction crew and were also working longer hours, all to complete the job earlier. They hope to have the trail open for use in the next week or two, with a more formal opening a few weeks after that. I had to admit that I had already been using it and he laughed, when he told me he saw me zipping by early this morning. Apparently, I'm not as stealthy as I hoped to be.

There is a gap in the trail at Tampa Road, but I scouted a safe detour, and there are probably others. At the corner of the trail and Tampa Road, face North and cross the road at the light, then turn East and cross the Lake Tarpon Canal using the sidewalk at the short bridge. Beware of glass. As soon as you see Five Guys restaurant on your right in the Booth Ranch Shoppes, look for a little informal footpath behind it under the elevated section of McMullen Booth Road. Follow the footpath for about 300 feet North as it dumps out into a series of connecting parking areas for several residential apartments. Work your way North thru the parking lots and soon enough you will see the trail again, on your right, adjacent to McMullen Booth Road. This will take you all the way to Keystone Road, where it will merge into the Tri-County Trail, and on to a series of trails, all the way across Florida. Also please be friendly, courteous and respectful when using this little workaround. We don’t want to aggravate the good people living here.

Again, thanks to friendly superintendent I spoke with, I also learned that this last gap will soon be awarded as a separate contract. That is because they need a small, elevated structure to literally ‘bridge the gap’, which complicates things a bit.

Finally, this is Florida, and it is hot under those powerlines, especially with no shade in sight. Please bring plenty of water.

Withlacoochee State Trail

Withlachoocee Trail

August, 2022 by dawn.lucio

We love this trail! Has some shade, some sun. 46 miles of great riding. Love stopping in Inverness and Floral City. Good restaurants near by just of trail. And close to bike shops. Beautiful parks in Inverness.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Nice Trail for short run

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

I started in between Steffee Landing & Pioneer Village and ran 6 miles (there and back, with a few wiggles down different off shoots). Really well maintained, runs next to creek. A few people out and about near first light. Felt safe. Nice running over wooden bridges and through woods,

South Dade Trail

A Big Disappointment

July, 2022 by aw7464745

Terrible for a road bike. Most of the intersections are under construction, and the trail is generally not taken care of. It goes through some dodgy parts of Miami. I was very disappointed. I don’t know how this trail was rated so high.

Skyway Trail

One of My Goto Trails

July, 2022 by robandlisa

Near my FL home. Easy to ride and enjoy multiple environments from parks to nature preserves. Perfect on-ramp for the Pinellas Trail.

Miccosukee Greenway

A Gem!

July, 2022 by doubled3

Two of us rode on July 16th, 2022. This was our 2nd foray but this time we started at the parking lot on Fleischman Road. A wide packed gravel trail that is just hilly enough. There are a few open areas but 90-95 percent of the trail is shaded. We logged 14.8 miles on our out and back ride and did not go on any side trails - yet. Available toilet facilities were clean and in good repair. We look forward to riding here on our next visit. Do not depend on water fountains as anything can happen at any time. Bring plenty of water if it's summer. The temp when we returned to the car was 100 degrees F in the open parking lot. The shade on most of the trail made it comfortable to ride.

Plantation Preserve Linear Trail

This was a very nice trail. We saw lots of wildlife to include 2 little bunnies ¿. Very thankful for this app otherwise I would have never known was there.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Nice trail. Eat at Lilys on the Lake. There are restrooms and even park rangers.

July, 2022 by johnforr_tl

Very nice and well maintained. Great scenery.

Skyway Bridge Trail

Amazing views! great workout

July, 2022 by jeanettelopez02

The trail was safe and a beautiful experience! When you get to the top of bridge, the view is breathtaking. Watching the boats pass through and the beautiful water. The breeze feels god and cools you down after a good sweat!

Venetian Waterway Park

First time? Here's How To Do It

July, 2022 by coconutbay

You don't have to cross any bridges. Put this address in for directions:
257 Tamiami Trail North Venice, FL 34285

You will park in the shade under the overpass. This is the trailhead. Proceed on the sidewalk/trail that parallels the water. You will pass Venice High School, then cross some minor streets before turning left to rejoin the view of the water. You will eventually ride behind the Buick dealership on a wooden path. Turn left onto the concrete sidewalk that runs along US 41. Pass the car dealer, boat dealer and go under the bridge. You will see the airport, and eventually the end of the trail where there are restrooms and shade. Walk over to Caspersen Beach and ponder why you didn't do this great trail earlier.

Go back to where you started. You will pass places to grab a bit if you're hungry. Enjoy!

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

very disjointed trail

June, 2022 by plalli_tl

The two parts of (the northern section of) this trail could not be more different. From Eagles Nest Park to Millenia is along busy roads, crossing streets, poorly paved, unmarked, and unmaintained. But then starting at Artegon, over to Sand Lake Rd and finally to the current end at Destination Pkwy, is absolutely beautiful. Quiet, serene, and meticulously well kept, with signage and trail markers a plenty. I hope Orlando or Orange County will consider improving the first half of this section as they also advance plans to create the next phase of the trail, connecting it to its other part in Kissimmee.
