Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

West Jacksonville rural trail with plenty of horizon

August, 2018 by dean28

I rode the trail for the first time this morning. Very wide trail, and it appears like the horizon is all straight paved trail. Smooth ride into the shaded areas. I went a good four miles and headed back. great trail to test bike performance, certainly a good trail to test all 21 speeds on my 21 speed. I look forward to biking the trail again, further and faster.

Amelia Island Trail

Amelia Island

July, 2018 by clemsonbrian

Nice paved path but very close to A1A. You cross the busy road a couple of times so be careful. Can be very busy on the weekends. If starting at the northernmost part you can go over the bridge and continue on the Timucuan Trail.

Enjoyed my bike ride very much, lots of side trails to veer off that head right to the beach.

Jekyll Island Trail

Jekyll Island

July, 2018 by clemsonbrian

A great way to tour the Island. I have biked and walked it. Many different types of scenery, marsh, wooded, ocean. Plenty to see and many places to stop and sit. Make sure to take time and enjoy, especially Driftwood Beach.

Georgia Coast Rail-Trail

Former Seaboard railbed

July, 2018 by clemsonbrian

Two trails hopefully merged to one someday. I enjoyed the trail in White Oak, walking across some of the old trestles a better chance to see wildlife and the beauty of the marsh.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Twin Lakes Park

June, 2018 by kevinkaren

Parked at Twin Lakes Park on a weekday before school was out, so nobody around. Felt like a safe area, picnic shelter and restroom but no shade to park under. Flat trail (of course), wide, smooth pavement. Came across one short stretch of trail that was underwater, but only a few inches deep and I coasted slowly across without getting my feet wet.
Rode east to the very abrupt end, and saw that it appears construction is actively taking place or will take place this summer. Florahome has nice new facilities and feels very welcoming. West from Twin Lakes Park became suburban and quickly more urban. I turned around at the first stoplight and rode back to the car generally satisfied with the ride.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

2018 Construction Coming along

May, 2018 by otherland

Lots of good things happening on the trail in 2018. The construction east of Roberts Lane is coming along nicely and should be finished in the fall of 2018. At this time the bridge over Rice Creek is close to being finished.

Also in the news..

The ribbon cutting for the NEW pavilion at the Florahome trail head took place on May 23, 2018. A really nice pavilion with 4 tables (handicap accessible). A nice spot to get out of the sun.... Or rain in Florida.

Also a ribbon cutting for the NEW playground at the Florahome trail head took place on May 20, 2018. A really nice shaded area for the kids to play.

Coming soon to the trail head an information kiosk filled with history of the park and grounds that used to be the Florahome train depot. The park that the pavilion and playground are a part of is called Palmetto Park.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice trail in progress

May, 2018 by SoFlaKettwiesel

¿
Started from the Vermont Heights ¿ trailhead, ¿
new restrooms here, not finished yet.
Rode north 2.4 miles to the end near I-95.
Rode south about 6.2 miles to the new trailhead at Armstrong Park. Restrooms, parking and picnic tables available.
West about a mile to the end in Spuds at CR-207. Can see trail work in progress West of CR-207.
¿
Crossing CR-207 both times easy with Flashing lights and cooperating drivers.
Returned to Vermont Heights for a 17.4 mile ride.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Palatka- Lake Butler

April, 2018 by nkstravelfl

The trail was fantastic! Parked at Twin Lake Road and headed toward Palatka. Some minimal debri but smooth cycling with plenty of wild life. I’m really looking forward to the trail being complete so I can cycle safely to St Augustine. April 20, 2018

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Always worth the trip

April, 2018 by bikechopper

We have rode this trail many times but not lately. It is an 82 mile drive from our home. It is still worth the drive, You always have the feel of the old rail line as the trail sits atop a tram bed with the ditch on both sides, it reminds you of the work that went into building all our railroads. Bugs were only bad if you stopped for a long time. It was Easter Sunday and it was well used but not crowded, We saw two rattlesnakes and many birds. The description on the page says there is plenty of restaurants and stores at both ends, this is not true. In fact there is none. The construction of the US 301 bypass by Baldwin does not really affect your ride. If you are in North Florida this trail is always a good trip,

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Very nice Trail but beware of vandals

March, 2018 by mschmidt55

Rode this trail yesterday, end to end. A great trail but... when I returned to my car at the Roberts Lane parking lot I discovered my car window shattered. Nothing was stolen, just pure vandalism. Park somewhere else.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Great Ride

March, 2018 by powerfade

My buddy and I road the full length and back (40 miles) this month, 3/2018. Due to the length of this trail the number of bikers/walkers were spread out so was not at all croweded. The flooded area mentioned by previous review has subsided and is not an issue. We would love to see a timeline on when the east trailhead to Palatka portion will be completed. It appears work is in full swing and even on Saturday the crew was working. This is a great trail with only a few road crossings except for in Keystone Heights.
