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.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

One of the best trails

February, 2023 by jodwhite1959

My husband and I would ride this trail together. I rode it today for the first time alone and was a beautiful day. For a semi-tough ride the hills on this trail are great.

Halifax River Trail

Not 6 miles

January, 2023 by jlindgren_tl

I was looking for a 12 mile run so I thought this would be great - just run it back and forth First I drove the trail and it was 4.7 miles from start to finish as shown on trail map. Then I ran it w GPS on watch and back and forth it was 9.5. So just a heads up this 6 mile trail is 4.7 miles. Other than that it was fine though there is currently a lot of sidewalk damage, but very flat, and yeah the Ormond Beach park was nice, had restrooms, and clean.

Lehigh Greenway Rail Trail

Well maintained trail

January, 2023 by dan263

Parked at east end of trail in a very nice parking trail head. The first stretch goes through a wetlands area on a well built boardwalk. Signage near crossings are weak, especially just after 95 crossing. Wooded stretches make for a very pleasant ride.

Spring to Spring Trail

Hog Heaven/Haven?!?

December, 2022 by duttonl

Rode December 27, 2022… Great path! Smooth, well marked, not a ton of traffic. Started at Green Springs and rode NW to Lake Beresford Park trailhead. Wished it was finished…wanted to go to the north end but only connection was via busy roadway! On the trip back we took the trail to the South Gemini Springs Trailhead and encountered a wild hog as we headed back to the main trail!! We knew there had to be more because we could smell them! Yikes!! Seen a lot of things on trails as we have ridden trails in all 50 states and all the provinces/territories in Canada, but this was a first. We’ll be back!

Spring to Spring Trail

Great Trail & Good Parking

December, 2022 by barbscondo

We rode this on Ebikes Dec 12&13, 2022 - perfect weather.
Day #1 parked at Green Springs Park. Trail does go along road for a few miles but path is good and we enjoy it all. Took the turnoff to Debary Hall Historic Site-beautiful and good restrooms. Closed for tours on Mondays. Then back out to main trail and took the cutoff down to Lake Monroe. Saw a big black snake slithering across bike path and a few armadillos. Round trip about 17 miles.
Day#2 parked at Lake Beresford Park. Great scenic ride. About 4-5 miles down to Blue Springs State park. $2 entry for bicycles & explore the park. Unfortunately, did not see any manatees this day but lots of other stuff to see. Back out on trail and cruised for a bit. Round trip about 16 miles.

Simply put, the best in the area. A must ride.

Black Creek Trail

Serious Maintenace Needed

December, 2022 by stevewhitten59

Asphalt needs repair in many places. Vegetation needs to be trimmed along route. The northern end meds serious landscaping attention. The northern wood bridge needs much repair work. The best part of this trail is 220 to Black Creek.

I have gone to this trail a few times and enjoyed it everytime. There are plenty of trees for shade and a smooth ride for rollerskates.
