Wonderful bike trail!

This is a Rail to Trail bike route---NO cars! Bathrooms along route. Almost flat, shady. Great experience!

We rode to St Marks, had lunch, and then returned. Seemed to be a lot of shade on most of the the trail. It is flat and conducive to an easy ride, walk, etc. There are several trail heads so you can start and finish at a location convenient to you.

If you want a shaded and flat place for a long run, this is your place. It is paved and crosses traffic only a very few times and on very small roads. It is quiet and yet has a consistent flow of bicyclists, runners, etc.

This trail goes all the way to the edge of the coast at St. Marks. Beautiful biking. Terrific off road trail, Munson Hills, that is a favorite of mine. Just technical enough to have some fun without needing full on bike chops to survive it.

My husband and I rode our bicycles from Tallahassee to St. Marks and the gulf, about 16 miles. It was so very lush and beautiful. There was not many other bikers nor walkers so we really felt we had it to ourselves. There is plenty of very clean restrooms and many parts you will be out in the wilderness hearing... More

We have walked on this trail many times in the Woodville area. We love it. We have allowed the children to use their scooters also. It is very popular with bikers. We see both young and old folks on the trail. It is always kept clean and safe and it is cool in the shade.

Good trail for exercise. Scenery is average. Good parking and clean restrooms at the north trailhead. We may be spoiled by the superior bike trail systems in Minnesota.

This very long blacktop trail stretches along the southbound side of the road leading from South Tallahassee toward Crawfordville. It's wooded along the right hand side most of the way, and sticks close to the highway on the left. I do recommend traveling in groups of three or more, as there have been a few incidents that require caution for... More

I did this once when the weather was just starting to get cooler. I loved every second! It is 16 miles one way. If you love bike riding this is a must do.

We rented bikes just up the road at "Great Bicycle Shop" (1 bike for 25 USD). The ride was nice and very easy, we saw some wildlife (birds, squirrels, snakes and angry dogs) and enjoyed a cold Cola and fried Shrimps at Riverside Café. The only thing i missed was more roadside signs showing distances to starting/ending points, nearest rest... More
