Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Great Trail!

January, 2018 by dmckee622

This is a very nice trail. From the Gainesville side, it starts off a little hilly, but settles down after about 2 1/2 miles. The trail is very well maintained and nearly all has a nice canopy of trees. You have the impression of being in a nice forest. Even the portion that runs alongside the road, has trees between the road and the trail to give you the impression that you are surrounded by woods. Would highly recommend this trail to everyone!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Big things happening in 2018

December, 2017 by otherland

Another 5 miles of trail is being constructed east of Roberts Lane. This construction should be done around summer of 2018. The trail will then have a bit over 25 miles of continuous pavement. Not including the trail up to Gold Head State Park. This new section will bring the trail past county road 309C where you can then hop on a short 2 mile trail that will take you to a park with picnic tables and bathrooms (that are not always open).

Also coming in late spring early summer. Construction of a pavilion with picnic tables & a new playground will be completed at the Florahome trail-head. Thanks to the hard work of local residents and donations from business's..

My review, submitted December 2017, contains an error. I was referring to Hurricane Irma, not Matthew, in my review.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Extending trail from Robert's Lane to the Palatka area

December, 2017 by lmcorey

My husband and I love to ride our bikes on this trail. We noticed that the trail is being extended from Robert's Lane toward the Palatka area. Not sure how far it will go, but we can see work being done from Carraway all the way down to the road across from CR 309 C on the outskirts of Palatka. We are looking forward to it being completed.

They have cleaned up the trail since Hurricane Matthew even though there are still some trees down in the woods alongside the trail. There is minor flooding in one part of the trail between Grandin and Putnam Hall, but you can easily drive your bike through it. It's still beautiful and now has water in fields that were previously dry and now look like lakes!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Lots of work needed

November, 2017 by danabrodbeck

Lots of hurricane damage and closed sections between Palatka and Florahome.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

First timers here- nice place

November, 2017 by coconutbay

We've looked forward to this ride for a month. It was a nice ride as described. Didn't see a lot of animals on the trail, but somebody's yard held goats and horses and that was nice to see.

The weather was 59 degrees yesterday.

Hills were do-able with our recumbent trikes, but first gear was a so climb for sure. Loved the downhills.

Saw no signs on the trail for restrooms. Discovered that one portable style toilet looked just like a pump house from the trail. Wonder why there are no signs?

INSIDER INFORMATION:

+Budget 90 minutes (if you average 10 miles per hour) to get from Bouleware park to Diane's BBQ. We began pedaling at 10:10 and perfectly timed lunch.

+Street crossings on this trail are safe-most are driveways. No worries.

+At the Hawthorne trailhead, if you want to cross US Hwy 301 to have lunch, follow this path: Right on SE 71st Ave, left on SE 221 Street, then right on the next street (not named on the map!) so you easily get your bike over the railroad tracks. I looked at the satellite photos so would live to write a review. There's no traffic signal, so hold your breath and cross the southbound traffic and wait in the middle to cross the northbound.

+Hawthorne is tiny, and sadly, lacking much in the way of commerce. Good news for us is that an Ace Hardware is there in case you break something and need some hardware to get back.

+If you start at the Bouleware park, check out the old building that was closed in 1948. There are restrooms there and water fountains inside. You can smell the history from a building that was closed during Harry Truman's presidency.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Palatka - Lake Butler

November, 2017 by pjbradfield

Very nice trail, especially from Florahome to Key Stone Heights. One section has some minor flooding but it easily waded especially if you take your shoes and socks off.

The section from Palatka to about 6 miles west of the town has yet to be started.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Nice and Serene!

July, 2017 by crowculbertson

I parked up at Depot Park and rode down to Rochelle and back. I had entertained parking down at Boulware Springs Park but got there in early morning and for some reason did not feel comfortable leaving my car there (safe?). I found the terrain easier on my return from Rochelle (east) as I could build momentum to climb hills. I then drove to Hawthorne and rode the west end of the trail out and back. The trail is undergoing resurface with fresh asphalt in areas on west side of trail. If they complete this resurface end to end up to Depot Park it will be wonderful. From Depot Park it is somewhat confusing to find the leg out of the park to a connector trail to GHSPT. As I interpret the GHSPT would terminate at Boulware Springs Park with a DT connector up to Depot Park and into downtown. Confusing for me given unfamiliarity of the area. All in all a great ride!

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Excellent!

Tried the trail for the first time in July...hot! What a nice trail! Be very careful at road crossings. Great facilities and interesting stops along the way.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Easily one of the best trails in FL

May, 2017 by dlippino

Long, uninterrupted flats. Curvy hills. Bathrooms. Water refilling stops, or convenience stores at either end of the trail. Short side trails that lead to scenic over looks. You can even do repeat hill sets on the climbs near the Boulware parking area. If you've had enough of the trail you can take any of the side country roads for miles and miles and low traffic central FL road biking.

Best done in the morning or the late afternoon, but then again that applies to everything outdoors in Florida.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

plenty to see along the way

May, 2017 by stefaniespencer

There's always something new to see on the trail...I've seen goats, horses, deer (literally crossing in front of me), turtle, snake, woodpecker, and a hawk. It's nature in all its glory along the trail. There are a couple of hills but nothing crazy, flat ride for the most part.

Amelia Island Trail

Nice path but too close to the main road

May, 2017 by lsbd64

We road from the State Park on the southern end to Peters Point and back. We thought this trail might have some ocean views but it doesn't, except at the endpoints. Its a nice ride but it's literally right next to busy A1A highway. The trail crosses it 3 times and there is a lot of road noise from the big trucks on A1A. You will be safe on this path, but if you want a quiet ride, this is not the trail for you.
