Great adventure

s

A fun adventure I almost did not come because of the short mileage but discovered a gem of a park and ended up completing 7.7 miles in exploring the park and trail.

Inside the park the trail is not marked, I just rode on the hardpacked shell roads and explored, outside the park entrance, there is a beautiful concrete wide trail that is totally shaded, a beautiful gem but that section is short.

I parked inside the Tomoka state park (do have to pay a fee to enter) at the "Tomoka Outpost" which unfortunately is closed on Wednesday as it seemed to have everything. The restrooms were open, and the view of the river/intercoastal was fantastic.

Parking was confusing at first, by the outpost most of the parking spaces are for cars with boat trailers as that is also the boat launch. Right next to the building they reserve a bunch of spots for customers/quick drop offs. There is a lot more parking right across the streets but no signs to direct you there.

I first road north on the hard packed crushed rock/sand road and had no problems on my hybrid bike. I even rode my bike on the nature trail (on one end marked .5 miles and on the other end marked 1 mile) it was hard packed and just wide enough for the hybrid. I explored several side roads, one leads to picnic areas on the intercoastal and that road has some big dips that could fill with water but must drain fast as it rained the night before and they were dry but muddy for my ride, I could easily avoid on the edges. The other side road leads down to the RV camping area.

Upon leaving the park entrance, you cross the road and that is where the concrete and totally shady trail is. Beautiful but that section is short.

You can continue on down N Beach street on a sidewalk all the way to Ormond Beach at W Granada Blvd. You don't have views of the intercoastal but the houses are nice and it could make for a nice ride. There are some pretty gardens at Granada Blvd and you can also connect to the Halifax River trail (really a sidewalk but with an intercoastal river view)

I only take 1 star away for the lack of signage, and its a fun adventure on a hybrid bike or mountain bike. Not a road bike trail.

Tail of two trails

s

This is more like two trails. We parked at the Inglesa Road parking lot south of the main park entrance. The first mile is a wide concrete path that meanders through the forest for a scenic and leisurely ride. Once the entrance to the park is reached, you will need to pay the $2 per bike entry fee to continue. The concrete soon gives way to a sandy road that is a little more resistant to ride than the initial path. This made it a bit of a challenge for my disabled wife on her trike. Restrooms are available in the park and there is a general store where snacks can be purchased or you can book a fishing trip.
Rather than ride the trail multiple times, we elected to ride the wide sidewalks down Beach Street for additional miles. We encountered no other walkers or riders in this quiet neighborhood.

Tomoka trail easy peasy and lots of wildlife

s

Super easy ride! Lots of wildlife, you're sure to see deer, birds, maybe a bunny or two, armadillos,turtles and more... And the trail being under the canopy trees is a nice touch. Even in the dead heat of FL summer you're covered nicely by the canopy. Great if you have the little ones in tow too!
