Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Great trail

November, 2020 by kboi215

Very nice trail for outdoor adventures.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Perfect luck for a late Oct ride

October, 2020 by wallbaumt

Weather was unusually perfect at 70F for our ride, a small cool window. I could imagine the cooling of the forest canopies on much hotter days. Trail was exactly as described and suited me and my wife very well. I think we had more Fall debris on the road than expected. Four stars from us. Started at trailhead Twin Lakes and headed both ways eventually to put on the miles.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Keystone - Palatka - great trail

September, 2020 by jimbocollins3

Great trail, we started from Twin Lakes parking area in Lake Geneva. Bathroom and lots of parking. Excellent surface, half shaded. We went the 20 miles east to end of trail (the mile markers are incorrect at this point, the trail ends at the "6" mile marker, eventually it will go into Palatka - hopefully). Presently you would have to jump on the highway (100) to go into Palatka. We rode back through Keystone to the end of the trail a few miles the other side of Keystone Heights. Did not find the Hometown Restaurant, but a nice lunch at Clydes (only open until 2 pm).

Beautiful shady Trail

August, 2020 by fi7uzmivxh

Terrific trail with lots of nature and shade!

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Great shady ride

June, 2020 by deester1

Picked up trail across from airport. No real trailhead, just a dirt parking area. That’s the only downside of the entire experience. At 7 am We rode 15 mile out and back. 90% shaded. Imagine it would be 75% shaded even later in day. Saw only 2 or 3 bicyclists and one walker the entire 30 miles. Well maintained, clean and swept except for a small 3 mile section. Stopped at Florahome trailhead where they have facilities. That’s the only trailhead we saw on our ride.

Amelia Island Trail

It is a great 6 mile paved path. We actually went off the path to American Beach. Stopped at a road side stand and bought oranges. We had a wonderful day.

Great trail. Not hard and would be great for kids and seniors. Trail is mostly shady. Lots of parking.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Great Trail

May, 2020 by swamp3815

Trail is well maintained. Nice parking areas with good small facilities at Imeson Trailhead. Baldwin has excellent facilities. Between mile markers 8 and 9 another timely facility. Halsema Rd parking has a few picnic tables and portable restroom. I was there on Memorial Day Sunday. It was crowded. Most riders practice road etiquette, but a few don’t...be careful. I will definitely do this trail again

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Nice Trail

May, 2020 by swamp3815

I started my ride on State Road 100 just west of Palatka Regional Airport. Very nice well maintained trail. My intentions were to make it to Keystone Heights. Unfortunately, after two knee replacements I found I was not ready to make the complete round trip. While I enjoyed the trail very much, a restroom would have been really nice to see.
