New Trail Reviews

Can't wait to explore all of the trails along the Three Rivers Greenway. The Cayce Riverwalk is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL.

Its a asphalt all the way and very safe. Great fir families. My favorite trail.

Very quiet and serene! No crazy intersections and walkers and bikers alike share the trail well. I only wish it had been 10x longer, but I didn’t mind going back and forth several times for the exercise since it was so nice.

Beautiful because it runs a long ways and you can get wonderful sunshine back-and-forth. However, every mile or two you have to get off your bike (if you want to live that is) and walk your bike across an intersection which only gives you 30 seconds and there’s traffic everywhere! It’s relaxing and then every 5-10 minutes you have to cross these crazy streets — not worth it. I would rather find a neighborhood and bike up and down residential streets than get back on this trail. As an out of town or I did this twice and would never want to do it again. I don’t recommend. The hiatus trail is safer but still also has a challenge of crossing ridiculous intersections.

From Start point (Allegheny outfitters) to Smith Bridge (16 miles round trip???). This trail is well maintained, and though the portion we did, does not really ride along the river the entire time, the river is indeed very pretty. There was not a ton of wildlife or distinct features, but we did find a very cool old abandoned bridge to explore. Look promising for kayaking etc.

We parked at traveler's rest and roller-skated all the way to Greenville. Lots of small declines and slight hills. Some sections closed for maintenance but there was a detour that was not really well maintained. Nevertheless, there were some cool sights. Old train cars, old buildings, swamps, new houses, Furman University, and etc. Nice trail if biking or walking to see nature.

Biked out of Bethelview Rd trail head; did both south and northbound sections on mostly sunny Sunday. Lots of people walking and biking but not overly crowded. Some challenging climbs and great views/stopping points to catch breath.

We started at Hwy 49 and wanted to go as far as lake and turn back, but a little over 4 miles in the bridge was out and you couldn’t go further. Wish there had been a notice stating that. There is not a single bench to rest. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate.

We started at the North end of the trail (Boca Chico State Park) at 9am on a Saturday and rode south. Nice ocean views. We also saw a lot of container ships. Fun to ride past the dog beach. As you go into Huntington Beach, the path becomes crowded but still enjoyable. This trail links to the Santa Ana River trail (an additional 30 mile bike path). We enjoyed stopping in Boca Chico on the way back at the beach cafes for the live music.

We started at Boca Chico star Park, rode down the beach trail 8 miles, then connected at this trail. We rode about about 10 miles then turned around. Clean, away from roads/traffic and not busy. I would ride this for exercise more than the scenery. We will be back to try the entire trail a

The multi-year construction for the stretch from Como Channel to Warner seems almost complete. Indeed I can now ride from Warner on the new stretch to the Como Channel itself. Unfortunately there are two locked gates on either side of the channel itself, even though the last small segment looks complete. Indeed, sometimes one of the gates is left open, and so it’s complete except for getting through the remaining gate. I have not been able to find out the opening date; does anyone have that info?

We entered the paved trail off of Expo Parkway near Costco and rode towards the Fish Ladder. It was a beautiful sunny day and lots of trees shade the trail. Perfect cycling weather with temperatures in the 60s. It was a Sunday so the trail was busy, but still very enjoyable. Lots of port-a-pottys along the way. We rode 31 miles out and back, but didn’t go all the way to the fish ladder. We ate lunch at a peaceful spot in the river and saw deer, wild turkeys and ground squirrels. Great ride.

Great ride today over the Causeway to the Pinellas Trail. Then took it north probably pretty close to the end, north Tarpon Springs. The detour scheduled to be open March 1 probably won’t open as it wasn’t near completion today but the ride around is easy and well signed. Came back on the trail and rode out to Honeymoon Island as well. The trail wasn’t super crowded. This a great trail and there are many great eateries along the way. Highly recommend Ed.

Spacious Trails throughout lovely master planned communities and quaint downtown Lake Nona.Even connections that are not a part of the trail are fairly wide and an enjoyable ride.

Love this trail. Earlier reviews state the trail turns to gravel at Paradise. Not so anymore. Trail continues on, over the highway and connects to the 35 mile river loop. Trail is wide--6' at the narrowest and wider than a car in other spots. It is concrete and asphalt. Most street crossings had little traffic. A couple were busy enough to use the flashing warning lights and area residents seemed aware of the bikers and courteously stopped at crosswalks for them. The trail is a slight incline heading southward but mostly flat. I used a little pedal assist on my ebike heading south, especially in wind, but turned it off and pedaled manually heading back north to Acacia Park. No homeless spotted. A few pedestrians and dog walkers but not many. Even on a Saturday only passed maybe 12 other cyclers.
