Canopy of trees keeps the trail cool on a hot day. Not too much traffic. Beautiful surroundings. My favorite place to ride my bike. Plus you can stop at Riverside for lunch or a drink before heading back. Or check out the boat dock and have a picnic instead.

this is a great trail to ride on...however watch for rattlesnakes because you are near the the woods. My son's teacher years ago hurt herself on her bike trying to get away from a rattler! Be Safe!

If you are in Tallahassee you MUST go there! Also Wakula Springs boat ride on untouched river is unforgettable experience! You will see alligators, herons, turtles, sea cows, plenty of interesting plants, amazing sounds, etc.

Walk, jog, ride your bike...great trail. Next to a main road, so you won't get lost. I biked 15 miles round-trip from Tallahassee to Woodville & back in less than 2 hours. Enjoyed every minute of it.

Straight & flat, scenic, a few historic markers make this a very pleasant trail. Take your camera for some interesting pics. St Marks trailhead is a good place to stop rather than start -- a few colorful places to eat before the return trip!

I've ridden the paved section of this trail numerous times and it is very adequate. The trail has recently been repaved making for a smooth continuous ride all the way down to the St. Marks river. The only qualm I had about the ride is that it can get boring. It is a 16 mile straight shot with almost no... More

I like long rides with no automobile traffic, 30 to 60 miles in length, and I was delighted to discover the St Marks Trail, in Tallahassee. The round-trip ride is a perfect workout, and I always try to get in a few quick-paced rides every time I'm in the area. The St Marks is one of the flattest trails I've... More

Unfortunately, it's one of the only bike trails in the area. But it is good enough that we take it a few times each year. The entire trail is something like 22 miles long, but we generally just do the portion from St. Marks 16 miles (32 round trip) to the edge of Tallahassee. There are a couple of parks... More
