The Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail currently runs through the communities of Armstrong, Elkton, and Vermont Heights in northeastern Florida. Much of the route follows State Route 207, hence its former name as the State Road 207 Rail-Trail. Views are a mix of woodlands and rural landscapes.
One day, the trail will stretch 19 miles from Palatka to the coastline's St. Augustine. Long-range plans include a connection to the Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail as part of a developing 260-mile, five-county regional network known as the St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop. The network is part of the East Coast Greenway.
A trailhead and parking are available off State Road 207 near Interstate 95 in Vermont Heights at the north end of the trail.
