We rode from the trail head at Polk State College to Bartow Ford in the evening before dusk. It is a fairly level trail with lots of nature views. Finish up before nightfall, or you will have a face full of gnats and mosquitoes.

I really like this trail. I have risen it twice in the past two weeks. I enjoy using one of the side trails running off of this one. The one I like best links with Circle B reserve.

Nice bike trail. I have been using this trail for a couple of years now. The trail is well maintained and there's a lot of shade in comparison to many. I have only ridden from Bartow to Lakeland but my experience was good. People are...More

I used to run 20 miles plus a week on the trail. There were shady areas and areas in full sun. Since the construction on 98 there is far less shade. Juvenile trees have been planted in place of the trees that provided meaningful shade....More

If u want to use an old rail bed next to a 6 lane noisy highway this is the place for you. The trail goes from lakeland to Bartow. There is plenty of parking. Don't forget to lock your car.

This trail follows what looks like an abandoned railroad right of way. The trail is paved in macadam and well maintained. It parallels US Route 98 to the east side of the highway. A good place for a bike ride!

Feel safe riding your bike or walking, trail runs from Lakeland to Bartow and is really nice and not secluded.

I don't go often but enjoy the trail for walking the dog. You will see many different modes of transportation from feet to recumbent and regular bikes. Some shade, used to be more before FDOT tore down trees during the US 98 widening project. There...More
