Winding alongside Capital Circle SE/ US 319 in Tallahassee is a multi-use path stretching from Woodville Highway to Hill Lane. The trail itself is a moderately sloped, paved trail along the landscaped side of the busy arterial. The trail starts off Appalachee Parkway as a concrete sidewalk, but likely widens soon after as it travels past neighborhoods, schools, government offices and a range of businesses. Its true value, however, lies in its ability to connect users to some of the city’s most cherished greenways and natural spaces.
Close to its southern endpoint, it links up with the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail which continues south for 20 miles to the St. Marks River. Off Shumard Oak Boulevard, you will find the Capital Circle Conservation Area, which hosts a nature trail. You can also use the bike lane on Capital Circle to continue north of Apalachee Parkway for about 4 miles to connect to the Lafayette Heritage Trail.
There is no dedicated trail parking.
The description fails to mention that the the St. Marks trail also goes north and ends there in Cascade Park, and also connects to Railroad Square and the Gains street area.
This is a great trail that connects east Tallahassee and Southwood community to the St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail. (Access to the village of St. Marks - 16 miles to the south and the university/capital’s downtown area). The surface is excellent asphalt. The landscaping by the city is beautiful and well maintained. Water fountains are placed along the trail. Very few cross-traffic intersections to navigate.
