Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Payne’s Prairie is a gem

April, 2021 by surmano123

Trail riding the GHT is certainly a excellent ride but stopping frequently to take photos and walk the creek and LaChua trails are the best way to spend an afternoon. I’m heading back out again next week to shoot some more film.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

March, 2021 by surmano123

Did the 14.5 miles on my ebike taking many photos along the way, Restrooms are available along the way, Definitely a must do.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great Ride

March, 2021 by ckoher

My husband and I road a section of this trail today. We entered at the Cora C. Harrison Preserve Trailhead and rode toward St. Augustine. We turned back around at the point where you need to cross a 4 lane divided highway with no signal. I felt too nervous about crossing. It was a nice trail for the most part. Some shaded areas, and some in full sun along side the main roads. I do appreciate that the trailheads have clean bathroom facilities, and picnic areas. The Cora C. Harrison Trailhead had a decent sized parking lot as well. The path is fairly level, with views of crops growing, and some cabbage was being harvested today. We did see a family of wild turkey as well. We will ride this trail again!

Suwannee River Greenway at Branford

Not worth it.

March, 2021 by termayn

In rough shape & no noise buffer along Hwy. 27 east of Branford. You cannot enjoy looking at the countryside if you’re having to focus all your attention on the trail surface. The section in town is decent. Be very careful when crossing the narrow bridge to connect to the Ichetucknee trail.

Nature Coast State Trail

Right trail-Right time.

March, 2021 by hkdorr

Only rode from Fanning Springs to Old Town and river bridge area. Beautiful day and couldn’t ask for a better trail section. All thumbs up.

Withlacoochee Bay Trail

A Hidden Gem

March, 2021 by kmsill9599

We rode this trail for the first time this past weekend and it was beautiful! The elevation changes were a surprise and the trail was well maintained and clean restrooms!

Nature Coast State Trail

Old Town trail head

March, 2021 by dgp13123_tl

Very nice trail. Certainly would rate this Very Easy. Flat and straight. I Started from the trailhead in Old Town. There is room for parking along side the road. Old Town to Trenton is an easy 20 miles round trip. Old Town to Cross City is also about 20 miles round trip. Old Town to Chiefland is about 26 miles round trip. The trail is well maintained. The trestle bridge provides a beautiful view of the Suwannee.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great Trail

March, 2021 by tunahawk

I ride this trail often for exercise, its pretty smooth, there is one very bumpy section just northeast of Spuds for ~ 100 yards for those with low pressure tires it shouldnt be a problem. Overall a well maintained pleasant ride.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Flat and Fairly Straight

March, 2021 by csbstar

I started at the Twin Lakes Trailhead. There are facilities there at this trailhead. I did not understand why there isn’t any benches or areas where you could take a small break. I traveled east to the end, there was the park at Farhome? And a small area had a couple picnic tables closer to the end. This was a 20 mile trek, and 20 miles back. Enjoyed it!

Withlacoochee State Trail

Great trail!

March, 2021 by cathyham

Nicely maintained, smooth trail through the wilderness area. We started out on the Good neighbor trail and the road north from there on Withlacoochee. Did 35 miles RT Total. Lots of shade and some nice benches or picnic tables. Yes, plan on drinking your own water, so pack accordingly.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Wonderful ride safe and easy

February, 2021 by jasperpjm

Me and a friend started from the Imerson Rd trailhead and rode West. Parking lot w capacity of over 50 cars was almost full. But as we rode 2 miles onto the trail traffic disappeared. It’s paved, well maintained, very slight inclines and of course straight. We got stuck at the rr crossing just west of the 301 underpass so after 10 minutes we turned around . We were very satisfied with a 24 mile ride; stopping for lunch at the picnic area around mm 10. Great putting!

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

great trail - can be extended

February, 2021 by fljulsm

I ride this trail at least three times a week. Trail is becoming a little bumpy due to tree roots. I start at the trail head on 207 just south of St. Augustine. I ride to Hastings, about 10 miles. I then leave the trail and take the country roads out to the river. I see maybe 3 cars a day on those roads. I end up with a round trip of 27 miles. Check out Google maps to find the roads that lead to Federal Point from where the trail crosses Main Street in Hastings. The trail crosses 207 twice. Bvery careful, cars don’t even slow down when you are waiting to cross.
