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...More

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.

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...More

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...More

Out here on Sunday at Fanning Springs so I stopped by. This is quite nice. 32 miles of trails that connect 3 counties. Built along old rail lines. It runs right alongside Hwy 19 so you can still be close to anything in a town...More

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...More

This is a great 60 mile route for bikers who want to get away from the roads. There aren't too many crossroads to stop at and there are many sections that are shaded. There aren't any restrooms at any of the trail heads (not a...More

In Florida, shade is important. We parked at Fanning Springs, and rode 9mi to Chiefland. Trail is well maintained, and flat with a few very gentle grades. It is shaded most of the way, with a canopy of mature trees in many spots. Then we...More

this trail is a good place to get in some miles without traffic but it is pretty flat and most sections are very straight and a little monotonous. No facilities along the trail but you do pass thru or near some communities with convenience stores...More

Oddly, given the area, I don't remember seeing a single bike shop. Which is odd because all around the springs in the area, there are bike shops from Fort White to Crystal River. So I tried to search it up. It seems the... More
