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

Awesome!

January, 2021 by matt355

Great trail! Nice wide paved path perfect for road bikes. Nice rolling hills, enough to challenge your legs a little on the way up and then you can enjoy the quick pace on the way down. The guy that wrote the review about the figure eight path went to the wrong trail head... he was on a different path. I almost made the mistake by going to the path he wrote about but I’m glad I went to the trail at 3080 SE 80th, had a great ride there. Highly recommended!

Withlacoochee Bay Trail

An unexpected jewel

January, 2021 by svancore

Not only is this trail very well-maintained but the wildlife is fantastic, the views are amazing and there are periodic outcroppings that are well done and well-maintained so that you can park your bike and walk out to an overlook. We saw a deer and at the end of the trail watched a dolphin hunt in the shallows. We found the contrast of the natural beauty against the distant view of the power plant to be one of the best sites in Florida. Easy access too

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

A Perfect Florida Winter Trail

December, 2020 by bike4-2

“Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway”. 65-75 degrees no breeze crystal blue skies. Perfect Florida winter weather on a perfect Trail for a tandem. Start at Santos Trialhead for the round trip. Probably the best trail we’ve done in Florida. Part of the unfinished Coast to Coast greenway. Curvy and rolling, canopies. Perfect asphalt, but if you are into mountain bikes, there are probably a hundred miles of dirt trail offshoots.

Palatka Urban Trail

Nice urban trail

December, 2020 by drfredlee

The trail officially begins at N 1st St and Main. This part is not so interesting. The interesting part starts at the railroad station and going north and then west from there. Parking is easy at the railroad station, too.

Nature Coast State Trail

Start in Fanning Springs

December, 2020 by rdavies

As others suggested, we started in the middle and went down each direction until it went by busy highways. Stay in the cabins in Fanning Springs cabins if you can- really cute.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

St. Augustine to Palatka

December, 2020 by kmsill9599

This is a nice trail running from St. Augustine to Palatka. We started at the trailhead in Vermont Heights and we rode to Palatka. The trail is well maintained, smooth and restrooms along the trail. We enjoyed this trail very much and if we’re in the area again we would probably ride this again.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice ride to Palatka from St. Augustine

December, 2020 by kmsill9599

Rode this trail from St. Augustine to Palatka last week. It’s a nice trail, smooth and wide and well maintained. There’s restrooms/water along the trail. Parts of the trail parallel a busy road/highway so take care in crossing as the trail crisscrosses the highway. We rode to Palatka and had an early dinner. It was a nice trail! Bonus was going past the town of Hastings, Florida where it was called, Florida’s Potato Capital!

Ichetucknee to O'Leno Trail

Easy ride for cruising bikes

December, 2020 by terry117


Easy parking just north of the O'Leno entrance. The trail is alongside a county road with a few rolling hills through the Florida countryside. We found the trail easy to ride but there are a lot of root bumps and a few sandy areas and broken glass from broken beer bottles, and because of that, I would not recommend riding a road/race bike on the trail. My wife rode her E-trail bike and I rode my gravel bike which were perfect for this trail. For the gravel bikers, there is a lot of nice dirt and gravel roads to explore. We will ride it again and explore Ichetucknee State Park.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Easy & carefree

December, 2020 by dmisner_tl

Pro flat, shaded, not too many road crossings, well maintained. Con Not a lot of scenery, isolated, no food or drinks anywhere around.

Withlacoochee State Trail

Love the southern half the most

November, 2020 by bretthburkey

The entire trail is terrific but if you only want to do part of it, I suggest the bottom half. The other day we drove to Floral City Park and accessed the trail about a quarter mile down the road to the east. We began riding south on mostly uninterrupted and canopied trail. Along Istachatta Rd with beautiful fields and ranches. We connected with the Good Neighbor Trail at about mile 10 from the terminus and rode southwest. It’s a newer straight trail to Brooksville. We saw two other riders and nothing but trees. Turned around at the end and returned to Floral City. A beautiful 40 mile ride.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

really great trail

November, 2020 by claywebster

This trail was wonderful. Very smooth ride, not very many people and beautiful scenery. I rode from Hastings to the north end and back. I will ride this again.
