Flat as a pancake! Well, sometimes there's an altitude change of three of four feet, but most people can handle it. I used it for running. In its favor are the mile markers (which, when the temperature is 90 degrees, seem to get farther and farther apart), against it is its lack of variety (besides being flat, it's mostly straight)....

We enjoyed the sights and scenery on our 32 mile ride. A great feature for Tallahassee. It was cool but nice. There were plenty of benches and restrooms on the route and we enjoyed walking around Saint Marks when we arrived. It reminded us of the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville, SC. Would be nice if there were some shops... More

This is an awesome trail I love to take my bike on for the day. Ends at a beautiful view, and by a great place to grab a beer and oysters! I would highly recommend doing it if you have not already.

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
