I picked up the trail from the PineyZ neighborhood. I love the various terrains on this trail. I saw a lot of people walking, jogging and biking. I don't think it's kid friendly because of how close you can get to the lake. Other walkers pointed out to be aware of snakes and alligators. They said they won't bother you but just be cautious.

The shared use trail is very nice with some varied topography. Spotted a deer and a red shoulder hawk. Watch your step...there are some heavily rooted areas. I really enjoyed my hike.

A great escape in Tallahassee to hike. Well maintained and wherever you start on the trail it's a lovely walk :)

One of my favorite hikes, it is easy as a walking trail (biking trails look much more challenging). You can hike it year-round, but wear mosquito spray during warmer weather. It's in Tallahassee, with the easiest parking at the end of Pedrick Road.

Always a nice walk, and very convenient. The new overlook is amazing and the lakes are always a pleasant site. Great trail, if not a little too busy sometimes.

Use Billy trail to go all the way around the lake. Take Cadillac trail for a great trail run. Watch for bikes.
