Where to Find the Best 30A Bike Trails
The Timpoochee Trail
One of the most popular bike trails along scenic highway 30A is the Timpoochee Trail. This 18.6-mile stretch of mostly flat, paved trail was named after an influential Euchee Indian chief. Believe it or not, the trail traces the entire length of 30A! It winds past many of the area’s vast dune lakes, a land formation found only in the Florida Panhandle, New Zealand, Australia, and Madagascar! Other sights worth seeing along the Timpoochee Trail include the filming location of The Truman Show in Seaside, FL, and plenty of beloved beachside restaurants and shops. Due to the length of the trail, it’s an ideal way to achieve your exercise goals while enjoying a day trip with your active family!
