so nice

January, 2022 by bendtheredonethat

Curvy paths, shaded in spots, fun ride over and under highway. Clean paved trails. If you are more adventurous, mountain biking too. Great fun!

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

January, 2022 by neilmens

Spring to Spring Trail

Great ride & amenities

December, 2021 by marilynmeeske

We parked in Lake Beresford Park and rode south to the “current” end of the trail which is Rob Sullivan Park. Lots of shade, great parking and amenities (bathroom, water) at both ends. Highly recommend. Round trip is approximately 18 miles. This trail has curves and hills. Felt great!

Spring to Spring Trail

Connector Trail … more like a sidewalk

December, 2021 by marilynmeeske

We rode the northern section of the trail, from DeLeon Springs to W. Minnesota Street. A good portion of this trail is a narrow sidewalk. We had breakfast at Ponce DeLeon State Park (you cook your own pancakes) and then we hit the trail. Next time we will ride the next segment that starts near Lake Beresford Park. We checked it out, lots of amenities.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great Ride

November, 2021 by loveymac

Rode this today starting on the east end into Palatka and back. Saw maybe 10 people on the trail the whole time. Lots of beautiful canopied sections. Since it was not sunny today the other sections were just fine. Will definitely ride this route again!

Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway (Santos Trailhead to CR 200)

Beautiful Ride

November, 2021 by deborahdebmartin

We rode this trail today and it's one of our favorites so far! Smooth paved trail, we saw a deer, turtle and snake!

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

so peaceful and perfectly shaded

October, 2021 by i3tgr6je8i

So relaxing. Lots of shaded areas and rest stops. Definitely recommended!!

Spring to Spring Trail

beautiful trail, needs some maintenance.

September, 2021 by juli8

This is one of the most naturally beautiful segments of trail in the area. That said, there are many segments that are not complete yet, and there are many segments that are showing their age, with treacherous rough surfaces, cracked pavement, potholes. The whole area could use some love, but it’s so beautiful. Better suited to walking/jogging than cycling simply because it’s twisty and worn out in places.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

bad and getting worse

August, 2021 by martindc

I have been cycling this wonderful trail for a number of years and it is sad to see the deteriorating condition of some parts of the trail due to a lack of maintenance. The trail is usually covered with debris in places and the weeds are taking over parts of the trail. Tree roots have made the asphalt surface so rough in spots that it is actually dangerous.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

palatka to st Augustine

August, 2021 by jeffdeitrick60

We started in palatka. Highlight of the trail was right at the beginning at the bridge. We parked at beat western as the trailhead was a bit sketchy. Once crossing bridge path was a little rough for a mile. After that the trail was great for the next five miles. Lots of shade. Very hot day. The trail then runs along 207 for about three miles and the traffic was a bit loud. Overall it was a good time.

We rode this trail in January of 2021. Well maintained and pleasant to ride. We highly recommend this trial.
