I personally feel this pro has the best trail system in Tallahassee! The different trails offer different experiences. There is a nice sort of greenway at the heart of the park too. It’s never been crowded anytime I’ve been.

Fun to bike! Trail biking trials also available at one point.

The Leon Sinks Geological area has about 5 miles of trails total - the one mapped here is the Sinkhole Trail/Crossover Trail. This trail goes by all the big sinks and has informational signage along the way about how sinks form, Florida's karst geology, etc. The Crossover Trail portion has a fun boardwalk through a swamp, and they've recently redone all the boardwalks and observation decks. There are bathrooms with flush toilets, sinks, and water fountains at the trailhead. There is a small fee for this area (honor system).

This trail is easy, well-marked, and well-maintained. Moderate is overstating this trail's difficulty. Great for families and usually see lots of trail runners.

Very new to hiking/exploring so this is from a beginner. The park would be amazing if it were maintained better and had better markings.

Beautiful walking trail and amazing mountain bike trail! My favorite scenic spot inside of Tallahassee. Lake Piney Z and Lake Lafayette are good for paddling too if the water isn't too low. Ospreys and Limpkin can be spotted here.

Two good loops - east and west. They offer different experiences. West offers a lake view, east is more wooded. Both are well marked and mildly challenging.

What trail?

This is a good trail if you want to go out for a walk, but if you're trying to get "in nature," I would pass. Part of the trail has you basically walking through the backyards of homes in a subdivision. Otherwise, the lake at the end is gorgeous and there was cool wildlife out there.

Great series of connected bikes trails running from Weems Road east past the lakes, up through the heavily wooded hills and even across lakes to Billy’s Trail and Alford Greenway. Very diverse topography, and lots to see. There is truly something for everyone on this trail system! It’s one of my “go to” bike trails for a good work out and beautiful scenery. Easy to moderate.

Flat and easy wooded trail in the heart of the city. Easy to get to and fun! Park under Blairstone Road overpass, trailhead starts on other side of RR tracks.

Nice open trails with a lot to choose from. The West Loop is nice with a view of Lake Jackson. The East Loop is more in the woods. Easy to moderate trails. Good diversity.

Gorgeous trail!

We ended up walking a little over 6 miles because we got a little lost. Definitely plan to return again.

nice wide trail! Like all trails in Florida, bring bug spray! Great trail inside Tallahassee city limits!

great trail well manta gorgeous views

We enjoyed this short trail. The steepheads are interesting and the bridges over the creek are nice. We didn’t see any remains from the Butler Mill site but the trip is worth it just to see the Indian mounds just before the trail.

Such a pleasant surprise! Near the park ave area, there is another little set of trail systems accessible via fern trail. Fun adventure.

This trail is a true North Florida gem! Needs a little maintenance but still a great trail. Did the outer loop (4.5 miles) which started with the Sinks Trail and connected to the Gum Swamp Trail to get the maximum distance.

My favorite trail in Tallahassee. The dog loves it too. Usually not busy, great views of the lake.

Great moderate trail, few roots and marginal elevation rises. My wife and I love the open pine forest terrain! Definitely our favorite trail, long winding runs in the open forest!

Nice easy trail with just the right changes in terrain and scenery. The Tupelo Swamp was the highlight of hike.

We love taking our dog to this park and we hike here often. I would not rate any of the trails as moderate, however.

Nice flat rail trail. Headed south and very little traffic. I'd suggest taking a partner with you as some areas are remote (hardwood trees making the trail not visible to the local traffic).
