Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Suncoast Trail

I keep coming back...

April, 2020 by mainebikah

Totally appreciate the Suncoast Trail for its excellent surface conditions and length. There are cold water stops and a few benches along the way that provide a place to rest and refuel. A great trail to maintain fitness on a bike, jogging or walking. Summer rides should be accomplished early as possible during the day as it can get quite hot by midday on. Wind will be part of these rides on most occasions so be prepared and budget your ride accordingly. Afternoon shade develops eventually as the sun angles to the west. Adding Starkey Park Trail will add about 6.5 miles one way if you go all the way to the park‘s entrance at Starkey BLVD. The northern end of the Suncoast has some small rollers while the southern portions of the Trail remain flat. Adding the Upper Tampa Bay Trail portion accessible from the Lutz Lake Fern Trailhead parking lot to Van Dyke Rd and incorporating all of Starkey Park’s Trail you can do a Century Ride using the entire length of the Suncoast Trail to Ponce de Leon BLVD Parking lot and back the parking lot on Lutz Lake Fern Rd. For long or short bike rides, the Suncoast Trail is one of the best in Florida.

Odd Trail

March, 2020 by pierceja

Rode this trail a couple times. It just seems to be a collection of three circles that intertwine. You just keep going in circles or in my case, connecting two loops with a figure 8. Confusing trails here. This trail is okay. Surfaces are good and plenty wide but not very pretty.

Blackwater Heritage State Trail

Great Trail

March, 2020 by georgimc79

Great trail to ride on. All asphalt and well maintained. One of my favorites so far!

Trans-Florida Central Railroad Trail

A perfect ride for a nice morning bike!

March, 2020 by carol.mcmanuspe

My daughter and I rode this scenic trail in North Indian river county. There is ample parking at a county park and getting on the trail could not be any easier! Lots of people using this lovely trail that had an easy grade overpass overlooking busy I-95. This trail is perfect for anyone looking for a quick stretch of the legs and a breath of fresh air!

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Historic Jungle Trail

Very nice!

March, 2020 by thom11187

Just did this one today and practiced social distancing along the way. There were a decent amount of bikers and walkers. The sand was a bit heavy and slippery in a certain section so be careful--I've got a hybrid so maybe if you have fatter tires it's not bad. Liked the water views, big homes and heavily "jungled" tree areas and the distance was very manageable for inexperienced & more active riders both. Was surprised they let cars on this road at all--there were just a few but when they pass they kick up a lot of dust due to the hard-packed sand surface. It was a great day overall and nice to do during this crisis.

El Rio Trail

Short ride

March, 2020 by ffemtchild

If you start from the North you can park at Delray Oaks Natural area 2021 SW 29th St Delray Beach, head south on Congress on sidewalk once you cross over bridge splitting Delray from Boca make a right that’s the beginning from the North. Nice trail all the bridges to Spanish River, Yamato and the Tri-Rail are complete so you go underneath the overpassed. I went to the south end Glades and headed back over North at Yamato and went back south to ride in the Spanish River Athletic field and around by library. If you start out at the South End you can park at the CVS 686 Glades Rd Boca Raton, FL , cross over Glades at and hook a right that will be the South Entrance.

Santos Trail

March, 2020 by pattyenglish344

We had walked at Santos on the forest trails and always enjoyed the beautiful forest. After it was paved we decided to bike it. We did our first ride yesterday. Beautiful ride, great pine smells and birds singing their songs!!

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

beautiful trail

March, 2020 by sailbum56

We connected with this trail from the Duke energy trail near spectrum Field. The ride is absolutely gorgeous, going through two parks. It is a viable way to get across US 19 going underneath, and riding above McMullen Booth. - Two busy roads.It is a great way to get to safety Harbor and ride along the waterfront there. This has become one of our favorite rides.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Amazing!

March, 2020 by n.caminero

We enjoyed this trail so much! So beautiful, serene and peaceful. Two mile mark from parking lot off of Bruce. B down has a water area which is great because going that far with children it’s nice to have a stop point where they can Reenergize. Great for all workouts ie cycling blading or roller skating and jogging due to smooth asphalt

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice Ride

March, 2020 by twopalms_2

We rode the entire trail and enjoyed the variety of northern Florida scenery--forest, farmland, and swamp. Some sections parallel the highway but are separate from it with only a couple of well marked highway crossings. Our only question is -- where are all the people?? There were so few riders out on this pretty Sunday afternoon. Not complaining. Just saying.

Four Freedoms Trail

Mixed feelings but definitely has potential

March, 2020 by gatorcritter

The Four Freedoms Trail is a pretty 12 mile trail that parallels a state highway for much of the way. A strip of trees provides a buffer from the road noise and wind. It has several sections of oak canopy and traverses some very pretty countryside. The final two plus miles north of Pinetta are more isolated and do not parallel the highway. Unfortunately, as others have pointed out, the trail is poorly maintained. I rode my road bike (with cyclocross tires) on today's ride. There are numerous tree roots, some potholes, sandy spots, and a lot of debris (leaves, twigs, branches) on portions of the trail. The majority of the trail is doable for road bikes but the section immediately south of Pinetta (miles 7 to 8.5) is very rough and is best suited for mountain bikes or hybrids. The trail has great potential if someone from the state or county is willing to take care of it.
