Miccosukee Greenway - TRAIL

Miccosukee Greenway - Trail, Tallahassee, Florida

This multi-use trail parallels Miccosukee Road in Tallahassee from Fleischman Road to Crump Road. The east end at Crump Road has a parking lot and is least used, although it is arguably the most enjoyable for mountain biking. It starts out as straightish double track, crosses Miccosukee Rd. after about a mile and becomes twisty singletrack for another mile or so. This section is mostly flat and can be taken fast. There are a number of spur trails in this section and I have spent an hour getting "lost" in here. It crosses Miccosukee Rd again and becomes wider singletrack and less twisty. After another mile and having crossed under I-10, you reach the next parking area at a big field. At this point, there are more walkers and bikers. For the next 4 miles, the trail is wide and firm with a number of roots. It finishes up a long hill, that is fun coming back down with the exception that the curves are rooty and it is possibly to loose control in places. Out and back takes maybe 1 1/2 hrs. This is a nice trail that can be hooked up to the Tom Brown/Cadillac trail/Alford Greenway back to the Miccosukee Greenway with only a few miles of pavement. This is a nice way for a longer ride of 2-3 hours.

Nice set of trails with a mix of easy singletrack and fireroads. I prefer the stuff to the north of I-10 form the Crump Rd entrance if just doing a short ride because the trails are nicer and see less traffic. The open areas can get HOT in the warmer months so bring plenty of water and suncreen.

I hate to share this trail because so far, hardly anyone uses it. I'd hate to slam into someone. Anyway, it is a good trail. On the singletrack section, you really have to look down the trail through trees for other horseback riders/walkers/bikers since the route is constantly changing direction. The westerner side is easier to see people and more open. It can be as aerobically challenging as you want. I gave it a middling score for that because it doesn't have serious hills, but you can time trial yourself breathless if you want.

Start at Crump Road entrance, go west to a side exit to Dempsey Mayo Road (pavement begins), turn up US90 to Weems, hit the backside of Tom Brown Park (offroad again) go west to the Cadillac trail to Lake Piney Z, through the Alford Greenway, onto Pedrick Road (pavement again). Go up US90 to either Edenfield Road or for a bit shorter route to Arendell Way back over to the Miccosukee Greenway (offroad again) back east to where you started....Or just do an out and back on the greenway.
