nice paved and unpaved trails for biking or walking

I use this trail as a cardio trail. Nicely paved, not much shade in some places, bring sunscreen and hydrate properly. I can't wait for the entire trail to be completed.

There is a nice paved trail, perfect for biking. Very easy. Wear sunscreen as there is no shade. Gets really hot mid summer for this reason. The Florida trail and Cross Florida Greenway intersect here. A few hilly spots to mountain bike. Very peaceful. Lovely park with large playground at start of trail. Clean restrooms and facility.

st.petersburg to tampon springs a great ride. I go gulf North then Pinellas trail back home. great ride,many bikes

Not a lot of wildlife. Sandy at times. A couple creeks were nice to listen to. Generic Florida hiking.

Beautiful park! I even met an alligator!

Not much to look at. Good for exercise.

very easy walking

Loved this trail. Scenic with wildlife, lakes and beautiful town and homes to enjoy. The paved trail is a real bonus as well.

Nice, quite, park.

Great aside from the after Irma mosquitos

Great place to bike ride. Pretty much a straight line from start to finish. Not much shade in some places.

Probably the best trail in the Jax area.

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).

This trail was a bit disappointing from the standpoint of hiking and birding. It is mostly pine flatwoods, some planted and some natural with harvested areas in between. The trail itself as defined on the official map is essentially just a number of Forestry Service roads. The couple of side trails that are available are not included on the map and are neither well marked nor well maintained. They are very "brushy." The creation of more trails that are clearly marked that wind through the various available habitats would create a better experience.

Have ridden the trail several times, it is great.
Does anyone know if the trail is clear, after Hurricane Irma?

Lot of friendly people in the trail during the morning time. The trail is well keep and easy to follow. We hike a ten miles loop and enjoyed it very much. Watch for cyclists since they are majorly in the trail. No much to look at while hiking, however for bicycle rides it is great.

Great trail but watch for Pygmy rattlesnakes! I see them every time I go.

Nice, paved, wide trail. I live footsteps away - just about 1.5 miles in from the beginning so I'm on a couple times a week. Slight elevation gain between historic Milton and the NAS. Best used for biking but loses a star for all the stop signs early on and the couple of intersections with Munson hwy.

Both the Florida Trail and paved trails in this section are really nice.

I'll be back. I only had a Short time. Must see the tower!!

Contrary to the specified length its actually 14.6 each way. Mostly flat and well maintained. Some of the photographs showing a fairly narrow trail are not of the trail, but of an adjoining area known as Camp Milton, a civil war camp. Overall, its a good, safe place, to ride, walk, roller blade, run etc.

I had been looking forward to this ride for some time. Started from the north at Gulf Junction Trailhead in Dunnellon. I covered 16 miles to Inverness Trailhead which rolls through Wallace Brooks Park; situated on Lake Henderson.
Riding south it seemed that it was mostly uphill. Only one section do I recall where I didn't have to peddle at all. Mostly flat, cascading through the landscape. There were several patches of large trees overhanging the trail blocking the direct sunlight; almost arbor tunnels. There were also long stretches of open areas where the sun beat down pretty hard. Add the heat from the blacktop and it's a lot different than riding forested dirt trails. Being paved makes it a really neat experience and easy riding.
I figured I would see quite a few people along the way. Turns out only about eight that I passed in sixteen miles. There are several access points and park areas that are connected to this trail. It winds through the back of some residential areas and commercial areas as well. Be careful to obey the STOP Signs. The trail intersects in several places where the traffic is rather busy.
I'm looking forward to covering the rest of this trail. It was casual and fun. I'm sure I'll be posting the southern section soon.

easy but long, fun and beautiful scenery.

Awsome old railroad track trail that has been converted to asphalt. Alot of backyard outdoor scenery.

Is there a place to park your car in baldwin that is safe and secure?

I love riding my bike here. It's the right distance and difficulty for me. It's all right for walking but a bit hot. Sometime I need to try hiking the unpaved trails though. There's a playground at one end as well.

Did this one in April only did 7 mikes starting from the west side nice hike watch out for the speeding bikes and the snakes seen 5 snakes sunning around 1PM
