We started in St. Marks, rode to the end in Tallahassee then back to St Marks for lunch. The rails to trails path runs through some lovely shady areas and passes through some great country side. Traffic was not an issue until we got right into tallahassee. We are big rails to trails fans and this one is one of our favorites.

I love this trail. I ride it a few times a year. The fishing town of St. Marks and San Marcos de Apalache State Park are with the ride.

The rail to trail bike (or running) trail is close to Tallahassee (Capitol City Circle), but takes you to the coast and through some varied parts of this section of Florida. There's even a spur that will allow you to go to Wakulla Springs.

There are frequent benches to allow you to rest along the 16 mile (one-way) trail and very nice porta-potties. However, several parks are also along the way, the one with the best children's playground is actually in Wakulla County at their trailhead (about 9 miles from the start in Leon Co.). Weekends and weekdays, lots of bikers make use of this great generally flat trail.

Whether you enjoy mountain biking, road biking, or just walking, these trails are beautiful and nice. These are not really for amateurs as there are many trees and obstacles inches from the road, but if you can ride proficiently, then you should have no problems.

This is an easy, scenic spin from Tallahassee to St. Marks. Once we reach st. Marks, we either ride up to the lighthouse, or tool around the docks. The entire trail is smoothly paved. The overhanging canopy of trees offers shade. One quick warning to female cyclists and runners: please bring a partner. I've never experienced any problems, but have heard about some safety issues in the more secluded sections of the trail.
