Jacksonville-Camp LeJeune Rail-to-Trails

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Jacksonville-Camp LeJeune Rail-to-Trails path extends along abandoned rail beds from the Marine Corps base at Camp LeJeune (Midway Park area) 5.2 miles northwest to Marine Boulevard in Jacksonville. The plan is to make the rail-trail part of a 172-mile network of pedestrian paths that will link with a number of notable Jacksonville sights, including Riverwalk Crossing Park and the Beirut Memorial.

The Marine base has agreed to open 54 miles of its paths to the proposed trail system. The Jacksonville-Camp LeJeune Rail-to-Trails path is a proposed part of the East Coast Greenway, which runs from Maine to Key West, Florida.
