I'm glad these are back in the hands of the State Parks. These give everyone a place to stretch out. But they're especially wonderful for families getting the bikes out or skating. Paved all the way so wheelchair accessible as well. Take the binoculars and...More

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

This is a Rail to Trail bike route---NO cars! Bathrooms along route. Almost flat, shady. Great experience!

We rode to St Marks, had lunch, and then returned. Seemed to be a lot of shade on most of the the trail. It is flat and conducive to an easy ride, walk, etc. There are several trail heads so you can start and finish...More

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.

This trail goes all the way to the edge of the coast at St. Marks. Beautiful biking. Terrific off road trail, Munson Hills, that is a favorite of mine. Just technical enough to have some fun without needing full on bike chops to survive it.

My husband and I rode our bicycles from Tallahassee to St. Marks and the gulf, about 16 miles. It was so very lush and beautiful. There was not many other bikers nor walkers so we really felt we had it to ourselves. There is plenty...More

I'm sorry but don't know that. We stayed at a wonderful studio on AirBnB.

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.
