I like this trail because it's wide and designed for paved cycling, rolling skating and walking. I can ride as long (or short) a distance as my time and stamina will allow on a given day (There are facilities at intervals along the path). The...More

We visited this paved, well maintained bike trail early in the day. Bicyclists, walkers, runners and skaters coexist easily on this trail. Shaded, with plenty of restrooms along the way. Follows an abandoned railroad track, so it is very flat. We will definitely visit again.

I'm not much of a biker. But even I was once dragged (sort of) on a bike to do the entire distance between Tallahassee and St. Marks. When I did that, Posey's Oyster House was still at St. Marks and my friends weren't afraid to...More

What a great trail for biking. It's a very flat and wide paved trail. What was going to be a short ride turned into a 20 mile ride. Lots of stops along the way with benches water fountains and restrooms. Look forward to returning

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.

We had our own bikes so we didn't rent but there are lots of bike shops (it is a big university town) so you can look on line and find someone to rent from. We did not see one right at the trail head.
