Recent Trail Reviews

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Great ride

January, 2019 by bethannsirois

Enjoyed the ride very much. The trail overall is in great shape and very smooth. Our only issue was after starting in Keystone Heights heading toward Palatka, the trail was completely underwater and impassable after only 7 miles so we had to turn around. I would put in on the Palatka end next time.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Hastings to Palatka ride.

January, 2019 by cfinnn1

We finally got to ride the western part of the Palatka to St. Augustine Trail today that runs from Hastings to Palatka. I reviewed the eastern part, St. Augustine to Hastings a few weeks ago.
There is plenty of parking in Hastings on Main St. but we parked in the Post Office lot a block off Main for safety reasons. The trail goes right through town and you pick it up on Main St. The first part is through local neighborhoods where unfortunately some locals find it fun to break beer bottles on the trail so use caution. Once out of town you border farm fields with an open trail which would be very hot in warmer months. A few miles down the trail though you get into some shade but not much. It appears the trail is not much used as we saw only 4-5 other cyclists but it was a week day. As you get closer to Palatka it narrows and then becomes essentially a sidewalk and once in town crosses many parking lots so safety could be an issue. The trail near Palatka also becomes very trashy and industrial.
All in all though this is a great ride. If you wanted to go from St. Augustine (actually Vermont Heights about 3 miles out of St. A.) to Palatka it would be a very good ride mileage wise. There is beautiful farmland, creeks with very nice bridges across, and lots of wildlife, mainly large birds. In Hastings there is a fantastic restaurant named Norma D's Kitchen, "The Local Spot" that has great food. Right on Main Street about 100 yards from the trail, it is open only for breakfast and lunch and is well worth either starting there after a big breakfast or ending there for lunch. We had breakfast and were very happy with the food and service, and price! Our next ride we plan to start there and back for lunch.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Outstanding Beauty with much wildlife sightings!

January, 2019 by utpaduke

This beautiful trail has 4 parking lots @ the 0-10-20-29-mile markers. On 1Jan, Tom and I rode from Mile 0 @ the Polk city parking lot to Mile-15 out and back. We saw several box turtles and a few Gators in the water! On 2Jan we parked @ the Mile-20 Parking lot. Rode out and back to the 29-mile marker, then back to the 15-mile mark out and back! We saw quite a few more box turtles sitting out front of their burrows; if I parked bike and tried to get close for pic, they would quickly scurry back into the burrow! We enjoyed watching one cross as fast as she could from the opposite side of the trail back to her burrow... Saw a gator happily sunning self on side of trail! This trail rides primarily alongside a swamp on both sides... it is awesome if you like a natural setting with only 3-4 total rural road crossing. All mile markers are painted on middle of the pavement! We came from NC to get away from cold Jan weather---this trial was a perfect choice for two days of riding. Benches with bike tools and Trash cans are provided along trail. It was extremely clean! Although trail has some age, the pavement is not "rooty" I highly recommend this gorgeous 29-mile rail-trail ride! I just might come next winter for another two-day out-back ride on this trail!

Spring to Spring Trail

Scenic but stretches are broken up!

December, 2018 by timbee205

I started at Lake Beresford Park which has a loop trail good for maybe 2+ miles. Head south towards Blue Springs which is an interesting place especially viewing the river & watching the manatees swim around where you could otherwise swim in summer. Surprisingly lots of people at the park for a weekday morning. Further down the trail there was some construction going on to extend the trail; after that riding on a wide sidewalk for mile or 2. I'm not sure how you'd get to the southern section via bike because of very busy road in DeBary.

So I packed up the bike & drove to Monroe Park and headed north & east. First few miles were very scenic over a boardwalk. The trail is good until just after Gemini Springs where it parallels a very busy road for a few miles but becomes a peaceful, scenic trail by the time you hit Green Springs. Here is meets up with the East Coast rail trail that goes another 7 miles or so to the gap.

It will be nice once this trail is continuous and also connects up with short stretches in DeLand where there's a lot of jumping around on sidewalks, trails, roads, etc. Some signs would be nice to help navigate. All-in-all a nice trail but needs connectivity work.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Pre-Christmas Ride

December, 2018 by pjbradfield

I rode from "downtown" Keystone Heights east through Florahome and onward through the new section of trail. I stopped at the 8 mile trail marker and think the trail is finished through to Palatka but had to turn back due to lack of time.

Withlacoochee Bay Trail

Great place to walk and see wildlife

December, 2018 by kaiserdr

My family and friends walk this trail all the time, and drive out to the parking lot. We always see animals and fish in their natural habitat. It would be unusual not to see dolphins here, fishing in the barge canal and at the end of the walk/near the picnic tables is great.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

New middle section complete.

December, 2018 by cfinnn1

We road the trail today from St. Augustine, actually Vermont Heights where there is parking and bathrooms, to Hastings. The section between Spuds and Hastings is now complete so you can ride all the way to Palatka. The new section is fantastic with some great bridges and farm fields. Most of the trail has plenty of shade also. There is still some finish work to be done but it is completely surfaced and ready to ride. It was great seeing so many people out today from serious riders to families on cruiser bikes. If you do the ride plan on being in Hastings early morning and hit up Norma's Kitchen for breakfast. We were not able to get there at that time but will plan around that next time.

Good Neighbor Trail

A Short But Nice Trail

December, 2018 by tonyjeeratuntasit

Nice well paved trail. The new extension is particularly pretty.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

no asphalt that I saw

December, 2018 by chemmenway

We came in on the north spur and headed east. If I knew how bad the road was I would have been better prepared. We started out on hard-packed gravel which wasn’t too bad, but as we traveled east, the road deteriorated to a bumpy semi-paved trail. This was much worse than the gravel. We had to slow to 10-12 mph. After we let some air out of our tires, it was a little better but had to closely watch the road for bumps and holes.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great ride

December, 2018 by wroundey

Ride this trail today on our tandem. I had been told about the unfinished gap between Spuds and Hastings. The gap is now completed and you can ride the trail the entire distance.

Spring to Spring Trail

Nice start & end, trail itself so-so

November, 2018 by buffettbike

Rode from Green Springs Park to Gemini Springs Park on 11/24/18. Both parks were worthwhile stops. The trail itself between the parks mostly ran along a road and was not scenic at all. Drive your car to the parks and bike somewhere else!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail
