Timucuan Trail

Wonderful ride!!

June, 2024 by hspnby2xqc

Since moving to Fernandina Beach from the Florida west coast, we had been looking for a good trail at a decent length. This is a perfect route with very few driveways and the ability to really get your heart rate up. Plus, the scenery is amazing! We are in love!

Imeson parking lot under construction

June, 2024 by kevievn

We went last week and the Imeson lot was under construction. Had to go to the one near Camp Milton. Too bad this isn't listed on any site. Otherwise the trail is in great shape. Nice smooth asphalt.

S-Line Urban Greenway

1-speed rider

June, 2024 by crooks1746

S-line appears to be holding its own, but has never expanded east across Bolivard street.....sorta dead ends. Noted lack of signs. Has been connected to the new Emerald Trail, which ends at the old Union RR station just west of the downtown area. Crossing Kings Road is a thrill we could do without.

Black Creek Trail

Disappointing

June, 2024 by mlafferty54

I had an appointment in the area so decided to combine a ride. Not worth the trouble. The trail is poorly maintained and the long section of wooden bridge is old, warped and teeth-chattering. Traffic noise made conditions worse. Overall an unpleasant ride. I hope NE Florida will up its trail game some day.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Clay

June, 2024 by 85osprey

Rode this trail from Keystone Heights east for about 12 miles (6 out and back) years ago not long after it opened. Today, I rode west from the trail head in Keystone Heights (located on SR 100 one block west of SR 21 between the CVS and Wendy's). The trail went 9 miles west toward Lake Butler before it ended at Navarre St in Hampton. There is a decent sized green space area off the road for parking if wanting to begin the ride at this end. The first three miles from K.H. had quite a few road crossings and then the next six miles had a few more. Most of this section was shaded (I started at 8:30). There were a handful of cyclists, one runner, and one walker with a baby stroller. Going east from K.H., the first couple of miles had many road crossings. Afterward, most were dirt roads leading to people's property. Three miles from the trail head is the Keystone Soccer Club and six miles is a Sunoco Store for those who might need bathroom facilities. After that, there was nothing until the Florahome Trailhead at 11 miles. This is where I turned around and headed back for a 40 mile ride. This section of the ride was barely shaded (after 10:00 by this time) and I didn't pass any cyclists and only a few walkers/runners. This was surprising. However, I did come across at the Florahome trail head a small group of cyclists that I rode back with. That was nice. Overall, the pavement that I rode was in excellent condition. Next time I ride this trail, I'll probably start at Florahome and ride to Palatka and back.

Great trail

June, 2024 by mbretscher_tl

Wonderful trail. Lots of shade over 2/3 of the trail.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

decent skate trail

May, 2024 by brookeypav

This u a decent quality trail for quad & in-line skating. Skated from the Palatka end to the St.Augustine end near 95. It’s about 42 miles both ways for me. The bridge is difficult on skates but otherwise, the quality is fine. I enjoyed Hastings a lot…although watch out for wind beforehand because that open section can be brutal on a windy day. Otherwise, the worst part is the highway intersection. Saw a copperhead about a mile from the St.Augustine end so watch for snakes !

Timucuan Trail

9 miles plus connects to Amelia Island Trail

May, 2024 by fkelly17

This is one of the best trails in North Florida. It traces what used to be part of the Buccaneer Trail. It is 9 miles one way from end to end so you can ride 18 miles out and back. TrailLink needs to update their map. Plus it connects to the Amelia Island trail for another 10 plus miles.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Friendly Folks

April, 2024 by shaarp1956

Hi everyone, My great niece, her friend and myself parked at the most westward trail head. We had a nice ride, visited Camp Milton, saw a beautiful Blue bird, continued on to the Imeson Rd. Trail Head. Turned around and on the way back we had the pleasure of seeing a deer on the edge of the trail.

Jekyll Island Trail

Jekyll Island Never Disappoints

April, 2024 by jallen1804

This trail is a nice wide path that runs around the island in wooded area and along the beach. It is a beautiful ride. The trail is crowded in places on the weekends.

Timucuan Trail

awesome trail. map is outdated

March, 2024 by bentfins

This was a terrific ride. Just beautiful. And the trail conditions are excellent. Once again, another outdated TrailLink map. The map as of March 2024 shows incomplete sections all along the A1A. That is wrong. It is a continuous run all the way up to the Crady Pier bathrooms.

Amelia Island Trail

Beautiful but Dangerous and Noisy

March, 2024 by bentfins

Way too many road and driveway crossings, noisy roads, and the white-knuckle major bridge crossing with interstate-speed traffic, all really diminish what would otherwise be a five-star trail.
