Description: 

Limited opportunities for bicycling on paved trails exist within the park. However, many trails are available for mountain biking. At the campground and museum entrance, the paved road between the ranger station and the picnic area is 1.1 miles and offers opportunities for wildlife viewing underneath the shade of pines and scenic oak trees. Additional opportunities for bicycling on paved trails is available on the nearby Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.

Bicycling is permitted at the main entrance on the sidewalks around the headsprings and gardens. However, due to potential congestion, bicycling is not permitted in the immediate vicinity of the entrance boardwalk, town center, and glass bottom boat area. Please dismount and yield to pedestrians. There is a bike rack near the fountain but please remember to bring a lock. Helmets are highly recommended for all cyclists and Florida law requires helmets for cyclists age 16 and under.
