The Ream Wilson Trail is a gem. Much of the length of the trail travels through parks, so accessing it is easy and it is clearly popular with the locals. It does have elevation changes, although this is Florida, so they are not severe. Access is easy, and at several points. I began in the middle, choosing to park at the Eddie C. Moore Softball Complex (and Park and Ride) on Drew and Bayview Avenue, where there is a maintenance road that leads directly to the trail. It is also convenient for getting water and access to public restrooms. Traveling East and North takes you into Safety Harbor. Much of the trail is shaded, and travels along the waterfront. If you choose, you can extend your ride on North Bay Drive, a lightly traveled road which will lead into Philippe Park, and a wonderful view of Safety Harbor. To the West, you travel through Cliff Stevens Park, and on to Long Center. At Old Coachman Road (Bright House Field, Spring Training home of the Philadelphia Phillies), the trail intersects with the Progress Energy Trail, which does exist along this corridor. It travels south as far as Belleaire Road.
This is one of the best trails the I have ridden in Florida, and would have received 5 stars except for two things: signage at cross streets is minimal, and the existence of crossings along the trail (although US 19 is avoided by an underpass, and McMullen Booth Road by an overpass). These distractions, however, are minor inconveniences along a wonderful, if short, ride (4.4 miles).
