Great ride! Only car Traffic was parking lot! This was a very nice ride. Straight to the Gulf of Mexico! We’re from Louisiana so it was nice to see the Gulf again with no hurricane. Hahaha! Loving the Florida Sunshine State!!!
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!
We rode this trail today and it's one of our favorites so far! Smooth paved trail, we saw a deer, turtle and snake!
So relaxing. Lots of shaded areas and rest stops. Definitely recommended!!
Would anyone recommend this trail for longboarding?
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.
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.
First time on the trail we started at the Croom area. Restrooms were well-maintained and we saw the deputy sheriff twice. I look forward to riding the complete 46 mile trail. Thank you everyone for taking great care of this trail.
We rode this trail in January of 2021. Well maintained and pleasant to ride. We highly recommend this trial.
We rented ebikes to try them before we get ours and this trail was so much fun. The hills and it’s shaded made it enjoyable. Highly recommend.
Very beautiful, smooth, shady, and well marked trail. Started at the Santos trailhead. It was 151/2 miles to the end. Turn around is a cul-de-sac for the 15+ miles back. Went on a Sunday in the summer and had a mix of walkers, runners and cyclists. No water or restrooms except at the Santos trailhead.
