At the risk of sounding picky, the Legacy Trail follows the path of the old Seaboard COAST Line Railroad (not the Seaboard Air Line Railroad).
We bought new electric bikes while vacationing in Palmetto, FL. It was a very nice long trail to try them out. Can’t wait to go back.
Enjoyed our ride. Will definitely do it again!
First time, will definitely do it again. Started at the park and plan to start at a different trailhead.
Parked on the end where the dog park is so that was a plus! Super easy walk… will definitely be back.
Very nice trail could use some maintenance, but it's still great for a road bike. Much better than most roads in Florida.
Very well maintained trail. Some maintenance needed but it's better than being on the road
Unlike the wonderful General Van Fleet Trail, I don't know how this trail rates a 5 other than as a way for extreme enthusiasts to add mileage. Even so, turning around and doing another lap would be better!
Started from the Polk City trailhead that serves both the General Van Fleet Trail going north and the Aurburndale trail going south. just an FYI, the initial trailhead is signed as Polk City Trail. Aurburndale-Teco signage doesn't start for 2 or 3 miles to the south. Be ready for the first 4 miles to follow a massive power-line right-of-way out in the full sun. The trail is not pretty to say the least as it goes underneath busy I-4.
Granted the last 2 miles are quite pleasant as others have described. Trees, shade, massive athletic field complexes. Just not worth the ride to get there.
I bought a condo a fifth of a mile off the trail so I can ride everyday without using my car.
Landed at a nice parking area and rode along a vast athletic complex with at least a dozen soccer/lax fields. Continuing on the ride became more rural along a large power line. Get in before sunset as the bugs come out quickly!
We rode this on our Ebikes Jan 7&8,2023
Day#1 Parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex and easily picked up the trail. First part along water and then through and by parks. Lots of shade. Really a great trail. A few boardwalks over swampy areas. We took the leg of the trail down to Mobbly Bayou wilderness. You do wind through two neighborhoods as part of the trail but very enjoyable and no traffic. The Mobbly part is about 1.5 miles of super hard packed sand and nature. Along the way there is a zipline that was busy both days. Total miles 14.5
Day#2 Again parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex. This time at R.E Olds Park on the map we turned north to the Cypress Lakes Preserve. First part is on sidewalk along streets with 2 signal crossings. Some won't like this but did not bother us. Worth it to ride through the Preserve. Saw an alligator in the pond. (From AZ so we are still excited to see these guys). Then when the trail ended instead of turning around and retracing our path we rode down the sidewalk on Race Track Road to pick up the trail again and repeat the Mobbly Park section and then back to the Sports Complex. Race Track Rd took us right past the Oldsmar Flea Mkt which is open S&S.. Total miles 19.5
Good trail - well marked and wide enough for pedestrians and cyclists- it was really fun exploring these trails during our visit to Tampa - a great way to see Tampa
