There’s a little bit of parking at the start of the trail. This is a paved trail. You can bike or walk. It’s only about a mile to get to the bridge. The walk was not very exciting since there were private homes next to it. I imagine the other side of the bridge may have been better. The views from the bridge were nice. There’s a few benches to sit and relax

32-mile T-shaped trail for walking or biking. Trailheads located in Chiefland, Fanning Springs, Trenton, and Cross City. I found the southern leg to/from Chiefland to be the most scenic and shaded. A must-seeks the Suwanee River railroad bridge on the trail just east of Old Town. Nice, wide,fully-paved path the whole distance. Also provides easy access to Fanning Springs State Park and Manatee State Park.

How sweet it was to take a bike ride from Fanning Springs to Cross City. Had we had more time, we would have kept on riding! The trail was so well maintained; in fact when we were riding, we passed a worker clearing the trail with a blower attached to his golf cart. He was so very respectful. The views were nice, giving a flavor of this part of the country.

The bridge was the highlight. Signage was helpful when it came to any roadways we were to cross. Most of this part of the trail was exposed, so if you are sensitive to the sun, beware! Thanks to the Florida State Parks system. You've done well with this State Trail!

I love this trail! Hubby and I rode about 24 miles of it. I can't wait to go back again.

Flat, well taken care of.

I especially loved the bridge over the river. Next time we ride I'll have to stop and take some photos.

Great place to ride. Flat and very scenic. Very few folks out there. The trail is 32 miles and I rode about 10.

Advertised as Florida's best-kept Secret and I can see why. Kind of isolated. I started at the Chiefland Chamber of Commerce parking and biked up to Old Town. Chiefland seemed to be a bit of a depressed town very few amenities for bikers. I wish I had time to go to Trenton. I would say that the signs at the intersection should be a little bit more informative. Rather than just giving direction they could had miles on them to. It would make a great Trail if it would some day to connect to Withlacoochee State trail. I meant a true biker on the trail biking from Texas interviews the movie this week when she got to Chiefland she had to ride rode.

This is a great rail trail. They keep it clean and well repaired. Although as a skater, you do have to watch for pavement cracks and acorns that will trip you up. The trip down to the river is very pretty and if you go in the early morning quietly, you may see deer.

The trail is wonderful! Easy to do with lots of scenery. It is joyful to see an entire family riding bicycle. It's flat and wide making it easy for young or inexperienced riders to navigate. Dogs are welcomed and much of the trail is suitable for horses. I have seen deer, owls and the chirping birds add to the entertainment. The trail connects various towns.

I've done a couple of rides on this trail and loved it both times. I've been when the weather was perfect - not too hot or cold and a beautiful blue sky. Easy riding, no hills, pretty scenery, places to stop and rest along the way. I highly recommend it. I've done the part between Cross City and Fanning Springs and part of the way to Chiefland. Fanning Springs State Park is a nice little place to rest and hang out if you want a break in the ride, maybe a quiet place to have lunch. The spring is pretty.
