Amelia Island Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Amelia Island Trail, on Florida's northeastern coast, runs from Peters Point Beachfront Park to Amelia Island State Park in the city of Fernandina Beach. Much of the paved, tree-lined route parallels Highway A1A, a scenic byway, and the trail is part of the East Coast Greenway, a growing trail network stretching from Florida to Maine.

The connection to Amelia Island State Park will allow trail-goers access to the park's acres of soft, sandy beaches, salt marshes, and maritime forests. Kayaking and horseback riding are popular park activities. Fishing is also allowed here, as well as at Peters Point Beachfront Park on the trail's north end.

One day, the trail's southen end will connect to the developing Timucuan Trail on the Talbot Islands. On its northern end, the trail will eventually connect to new sections of the East Coast Greenway that are currently under construction.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Amelia Island State Park (State Road A1A North) on the trail's southern end and at Peters Point Beachfront Park (1974 S. Fletcher Ave.) on the trail's north end.
