For hikers this is just so boring. If you think this is exciting, then you haven't traveled enough.
It is great for advanced bikers! Needs some maintenance on the challenges at some spots.
For locals it's a good jogging track too.
I did it in my flip flops (had blisters from hikes the days before) and took me an hour to do the trail.
I love to use this trail. its great for bringing people of all skill levels as there are parts that are easy but also pretty difficult. what I love most is being covered by the trails the whole time and how many quick turns there are. not very difficult but really fun trail.
Magnolia trail is a great trail! It's accessible from the west Tom Brown parking lot and, contrary to a previous review from another user, it is a full dirt trail. Also, the map showing the location on AllTrails is a bit off...the trail doesn't go as far west as it shows. Anyway, I really enjoyed riding this trail. It is also very well-marked with blue diamonds and ascending (or descending, depending on which way you take the loop) numbers. One of the best in Tallahassee in my opinion!
This is a great little trail in the middle of Tallahassee. It connects easily into Tom Brown Park and the Goose Pond, Magnolia and Cadillac trails. It's a good trail to learn on and it's very pretty. At the same time, unlike some other trails, it's very easy to bail out and get on the paved road or to a sidewalk to flag down help if it should be needed.
Magnolia is mostly a way to get to other trails in or from Tom Brown Park. Magnolia will connect you to the Cadillac Fern and Goose Pond Trails. It's paved and shaded and a short pleasant ride for beginners or a thoroughfare for the more adventurous crowd that is just passing through.
