Panama City, FL -- Boardwalk Beach Resort to Timpoochee Trail
I'll be vacationing next week with children 7, 5 and 2 at the Boardwalk Beach Resort in Panama City Beach, Florida. It's about 15 miles east of the east end of the Timpoochee Trail (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4, link 5).
Q. -- Is it safe enough for bikes pulling kid trailers to go from the Boardwalk to the eastern Timpoochee trailhead? The path, I guess, would be to ride Thomas to Front Beach Road for about 13.5 miles, then about 1.5 miles on Hwy 98/30 over Powell Lake to the trailhead where 30A splits off of 98/30.
Q. -- What kid-friendly biking is there in the vicinity of the Boardwalk Beach Resort? When we vacation, we try to go everywhere on bike. The 7 year old now rides his own bike, the 5 year old rides a single-wheeled pedal-trailer behind mom and the 2 year old rides in a two wheeled baby buggy behind dad. We consider it a failure to use of the car to go anywhere after we arrive at the vacation site.
