Great ride.

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

Just a short ride
Mar 2020 • Solo
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.

Great to walk or roller skate

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.

Walk, Run, or Ride!

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.

NIce Trail!
Mar 2018 • Solo
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.

Beautiful scenery!

I've been on the Trenton to Old Town portion of the trail many times--walking, bicycling and rollerblading (the bridge is a little bumpy on rollerblades, lol!) and love it! So pretty and feels safe. Great exercise and a nice way to travel around.

Way down on the Suwanee River
Jan 2018 • Family
My son and I did a section of the nature Coast Trail when we stayed overnight at a cabin at Fanning Springs State Park. The park makes a good base because it is almost directly across highway 19/98 from the Fanning Springs trailhead at the center of the T formed by the trail spurs. We went to the Suwanee River and then down toward Chiefland mostly along the highway. Had grandiose plans of going almost to Chiefland , then following hwy 320 into Manatee Springs State park and back Didn't make it all that way, but some other visitors at Fanning Springs had been to Manatee Springs earlier and said there were no manatee there anyway- too cold on a chilly winter day, I guess. No, the trail is not more than 100 miles long like Chesapeake and Ohio canal or have tunnels or waterfalls but I did enjoy experiencing the scenery of that part of Florida at less than 65 mph. Trail is flat and multisurface so easy to bike, walk, jog, or push a wheelchair or stroller. Gas station in Fanning Springs by trailhead parking lot has boiled peanuts for a quick snack or to take back to your cabin, motel, or tent.

Flat trail
Jan 2018 • Couples
I like to ride my bike, but I do not like hills. This was perfect. The very good rating, as opposed to excellent, is due to the fact that there is not much scenery along some sections of the trail. It is well maintained. There are stops along the trail where there are restroom facilities.

Nice trail
Mar 2017 • Couples
This trail has 3 Spurs roughly T shaped. Flat terrain with lots of wooded areas. Ride out to the old train trestle towards old town. Neat old bridge over the Swanee river. We were there in early March and pretty much had the trails to our selves.

Nature Coast State Trail
Dec 2016 • Friends
The Nature Coast Trail highlight is the senic train trestle about four miles west of Fanning Springs. The trail is 31.7 miles of paved bike trail, there are three spokes to three small towns ( each with less than 2,000 people: Cross City, Trenton, and Chiefland ). Everyone stops at the train trestle to look at the swiftly flowing Suwanee. You will need to go over to Manatee or Fanning Springs to see Manatee, but the senic stretch from Fanning to North of the trestle you will see a lot of trees, birds and animals. The 7 mile stretch that goes to Trenton has shade from the trees along the farmland. All three towns have a pavillian, parking and restrooms.
