St. George Island Bike Path Description

St. George Island, in the Florida Panhandle, is a 22-mile barrier island with Apalachicola Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. It has a laid-back vibe and is known for its uncrowded beaches. A 6-mile paved path parallels Gulf Beach Drive, the island's main road, from just outside St. George Plantation (a private gated community) to the entrance of St. George Island State Park on the island's eastern end. Enter the state park and you'll have the opportunity to pick up hiking trails for exploring its dunes, forest, and marshes. Although the linear path lacks shade, it provides a non-motorized transportation link between businesses. 

 

 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is located adjacent to the Cape St. George Lighthouse and St. George Island Visitor Center, which are located at 2A East Gulf Beach Drive. The entrance to the parking area is just west of the physical address at West Gulf Beach Drive and Franklin Boulevard.

The eastern terminus of the trail is at the entrance to Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park (1900 E. Gulf Beach Drive).

St. George Island Bike Path Reviews

Can ride an additional 7+ miles, one way, at the state park at the east end of the trail. An update on the bike path continuing into the gated community. They are no longer as accepting of cyclists using their hallowed grounds. The gatekeeper came out of gatehouse as if foreign terrorists were trying to breach security and turned us away. ( I give him credit for his restraint; he didn't draw a weapon!).We ate at Paddy's Oyster Bar on E 3rd St. Friendly owner Patrick serves the freshest and largest oysters my wife and I ever tasted.

During the summer of 2014, the Plantation (west end) homeowner's association added more trail along the trunkline road down the center of this barrier island. The western end of the trail is in a gated community, but they don't give cyclists a hard time, so it's worth a ride.

Total trail length from west to east is about 15 miles- from Dolphin Drive in the Plantation to the East End near the state park.

Nice ride that follows the main road down the center of the island. Beautiful unspoiled area without the wall to wall high rise condos that have spoiled many Florida beach towns. The state park at the east end of the island provides for additional trail scenery. Several restaurants on the island (near the lighthouse); we ate lunch at The Beach Pit - Great Food & Drink, Oysters to die for.
The island is a well kept secret not to be missed.
