Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Nice long flat ride

May, 2023 by pitsplace

We have rode this a couple times in the last couple months. We parked at north end point of main trail where future trail will cross HWY 100 north of Keystone. It’s not really a parking area but there is room for about 6 cars and I saw other people parking there so we did too. As other people have said it is within 20-30 yards at times of HWY100 but it ducks in and out of the woods and there is plenty of trail that isn’t close to the highway. We rode out 22 miles to south of the State Forest north of Palatka and then headed back. There is a little

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Great Trail

May, 2023 by eguydjr

Great trail, I only planned on riding 1/2 but the wife got ahead of me & we went all the way. Made the turn & it started the heaviest rain I've ever ridden in. we stopped at stations & under passes then stood in the rain as we waited for the train to pass. Finished up after the rain quit for a great ride.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

fantastic trail

April, 2023 by curtiscannata

We did the ride from Palatka all way through Keystone Hts this week and it was amazing. Some false flats mixed in with some nice downhills make for great road biking route. We too pushed past the endpoint in Keystone Hts into newly paved trail. Could only go about 2.5 miles then it disconnects. But looks like other paved all the way into Hampton. Does anyone know the plans for connecting this to Lake Butler or not? Total ride end to end was 56.5miles.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Good experience!

March, 2023 by gail laduke

Drove from Ocala to Palatka so we could start there and cross the bridge over the river. Unfortunately the bridge was closed off on Palatka side. We drove over the bridge drove over the bridge and parked at the Post Office which is right on the trail. Trail was in good shape except for edges in the woods where tree roots are starting. Rode 29 miles out and back. Enjoyed it! It was worth the drive. Closer to St. Augustine it was in sun along road that's why we turned around. Good beer at the brewery in Palatka for the end of the ride! A good day.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Poor Experience!

March, 2023 by m95hxm5nym

Majority of the trail is next to the main road (207) so little shade and quite noisy. Along the trail there is nothing to see but run down houses and cars. We were even heckled by two men who appeared to be homeless and under the influence. Didn’t feel particularly safe or fun. Wouldn’t recommend.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Great Trail!

February, 2023 by twdouget

It has been a number of months since we rode this trail. Today we found that at the "end" in Keystone Heights, mile 32ish, we were prepared to make our turn to return to Florahome. As we approached I saw that the construction to complete the trail to Lake Butler is going along nicely. Went across onto the "new" trail surface for just about 1.5 miles into the new pavement. Can't wait for the official opening.
Does anyone know how far this will extend the trail west from Keystone Heights?

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

pretty nice trail

February, 2023 by jrutch

We parked at the Jameson trailhead (parking lot fills up quickly) - rode 7.5 miles one way for a 15 mile round trip - did not see any exotic animals except for cows..... -- road crossings were quiet -- the only downside was that we were looking for the connection to camp milton and did not see anything on the trail for that --- oh well -- otherwise a pleasant warm ride on a february afternoon (coming from NJ that was a treat)

Black Creek Trail

WARNING:Northern Bridge has been closed due to damage

February, 2023 by oanmlldy

WARNING:Northern Bridge is closed due to damage with no signage at beginning of the trail. This means the only way to traverse the trail is to walk along the US HWY 17, a very high volume road leading to a potentially dangerous situation. Asphalt needs repairs on trail and road noise level is high.

Amelia Island Trail


January, 2023 by ffsswing

Great trail. Take it across the bridge to Talbot island and then take the path to the beach. Amazing

Amelia Island Trail

Bike friendly area

January, 2023 by dan263

Started at north end in a large parking lot along the beach. Trail is very winding and interesting but does have a few road crossings. People seem very aware of bikers making crossings easy.

Timucuan Trail

The very best of Old Florida

January, 2023 by malarkeycontainer

Despite being relatively short and still fragmented, this trail is still a very solid 5. We began our ride at the parking lot for the Fishing Pier / boat launch at the northernmost entrance to Big Talbot State Park. Parking is limited, but the $3 fee is nominal. Clean restrooms make this a very good staging place. This location also serves as great trailhead for the lower quality, but still worthwhile Amelia Island Trail. It is very safe to use the extra-wide, bike only lane across the A1A bridge connecting both the Ameila Island and Timucuan trails.

The Timucuan Trail is currently broken into 2 segments, but the bike crossing over the bridge connecting Big Island and Little Island State Parks is currently under active construction. Hooray!

We only did the Big Island State Park section along with the Amelia Island Trail. We just didn’t have time to re-stage our vehicle before needing to head on. That said, the 3 or 4 miles we did was stupendous. Take the Black Rock Beach spur to Driftwood Beach. Never found Black Rock, but the ¼ mile to Driftwood Beach is most definitely worth it. Mountain bike not needed, it’s very easy for a hybrid.
