Mountain Biking St. Marks Trail
#161 of 285 mountain bike trails in Florida
This paved path runs 16 miles to the coast; about one mile or less from the start is a sand trail that runs into the woods, I think a four mile loop. Nice thing about this trail is that you can peel off and head into the National Forest. The trail is pretty tech at times dependent on the weather- the paved path is leisurely, and at the end @ St Marks is absolutely beautiful.

"State Road 319 circles Tallytown, catch it and come around the south side of town to hit Woodville Hiway which will run you south. About 1/2 mile on the right is a parking lot that will begin the St Marks Trail.
You can find the single track trail head about twenty feet in front of the bathroom by the parking lot. A great ride after or during a good rain especially because when the trail is dry, certain sections can become sandy. A descent beginner trail if you're looking to avoid any sort of strenuous climbing or any major declines. A word to the wise though, pay attention to where you're going because it can be kind of easy to get turned around. (not so fun trying to find the parking lot in the middle of a heavy thunderstorm... trust me I know...) * Review edited 8/12/2009Thank |
bout 2 mile. down pavment there is off road section roughly 8 miles figure 8 track. pretty sand will test your stability great to haul on. technical sections are suprising fun OFF ROAD portion off of the ST.Marks trail.Thank |
Actually Starts 1 mile south of Stadium off Lake Bradford Road. Just make your first left right after the train tracks. You can't miss it. Pretty good ride. One of the only safe places to ride in Tally. Crowded on weekends by trailhead. Kept up immaculately. To put it in short. A flat fast ride to St. Marks.Thank |
I agree with the fish & chips and ice cold brew at the river... you deserve it after logging 16 miles... I'll have to try out the sand loop off the beaten path...Thanx for the reviews...Thank |
Great training ride, straight out 16 miles and then back another 16 will finish you with 32 miles. I like to top off the whole ride with a fish and chips basket and an ice cold Corona at the restaurant on the river. Good times...Thank |
