Rode the trail this morning hoping to get in a good ride unfortunately the Trail Bridge is still out. No signs stating when it may be repaired!
Rode on Saturday Veterans Day. The parade in Palatka was great. We parked at Riverfront Park. Rode across street to the Quality Inn parking lot and right there you can catch the trail over the river. Rest of trail easy to follow. It’s 3.5 miles to the start of the tree canopy portion. Trees end at 6.7. Then a straight hot ride along Hwy 207 to Hastings for a total of 11 miles. It was 84 today so feeling the heat and humidity. I was expecting a longer section of tree canopy. I’m glad we did it but most likely would not be in my list of repeats.
We parked at the first trailhead closest to I-295. That is designated Mile #1. The first 2 miles does not have a lot of shade but after that it is a beautiful tree canopy! We are from AZ so love the trees! About 6? Miles in is Camp Milton. The best part of the ride! Traillink shows the turn off and a little circle of tail within the park. Keep going!! What it doesn’t show are all the beautiful concrete winding paths in the Park. They go on and on through the trees. And then we stumbled on the most wonderful mile or two of boardwalk built above the forest floor floor and winding in the trees
Traveling US 17 to the trailhead at Black Creek Park the bridge was coned off and caution taped with a sign saying trail close. About midway the bridge was collapsed in one short section. We went to the trailhead and walked south to the water and then north to the next intersection so Yoo-Hoo could stretch her legs. The trail wasnt that appealing as it paralleled US 17 with a lot of side street and commercial driveway crossings to contend with. The traffic noise was also a factor. Its probably more of a good neighborhood trail but not one to do for an enjoyable recreational ride.
We rode the trail from Prairie Creek Preserve to Depot Park in Gainesville. Shaded with beautiful trees, nice hills & curves on the way. Great lunch at Goldie’s Burgers at Depot Park.
The bike pedestrian bridges and trail between Little and Big Talbot Islands have been completed. It’s now possible to ride 9 miles continuously from Fort George Inlet to the North end of Big Talbot Island. As of October 2023, the pedestrian bridge from Talbot to Amelia is still closed and in need of repair.
Beautiful trail and absolutely worth the time. Went on Sunday afternoon about 1:30/2pm and the trail only had a few people (less than 15) for the first couple miles. After that we were the only ones on the trail. Pavement has some bumps due to tree roots here and there, but they are mostly mild. Trail follows along a stream on both sides for portions of the mileage. Overall beautiful and 90%+ shaded. Gorgeous!
You now can pedal from Keystone Heights to the town of Hampton, adding about six more miles of paved trail to enjoy.
Rode the trail end to end. It is a nice trail, nothing really sticks out except spud farms and view going over St. John’s River. Mostly open to the sun when riding along SR 207, shaded when trail deviates away. Surface was pretty good, better heading west than east.
I was able to add a few more miles in Palatka than shown on map, finished with 48 miles. Will ride again.
...A very good walking path, but always a work in progress due to Neverending construction...I for one miss the Landing!
...Best in the South!
...This is a great walk path, a bit noisy with the bridge traffic, but overall terrific...
