Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice Ride

March, 2020 by twopalms_2

We rode the entire trail and enjoyed the variety of northern Florida scenery--forest, farmland, and swamp. Some sections parallel the highway but are separate from it with only a couple of well marked highway crossings. Our only question is -- where are all the people?? There were so few riders out on this pretty Sunday afternoon. Not complaining. Just saying.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Super

Georgia Coast Rail-Trail

A Little Bit of Everything

February, 2020 by weluvnascar

My husband and I rode this trail today and loved it! The scenery is a little bit of everything and all beautiful. We started at the Satilla River parking area and rode south. The trail takes you along the river, through a quiet residential area, then through the woods. Lots of trees and bird feeders through the residential area. The trail is in great shape, and it’s an easy ride. We will do it again!

Amelia Island Trail

Amelia Island

Beautiful trail, loved this! Many crossings but drivers were very considerate of bikers. Rode from Big Talbot Island to Fort Clinch and back. Stopped at Sliders Grill on the beach for lunch. Perfect day.

Georgia Coast Rail-Trail

A complete waste of time

January, 2020 by bob_culliton

Little to no scenery and close to a busy state road. I had to apologize to my family for wasting their time.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great Trail

January, 2020 by gar.snider

Parked at the Vermont Blvd location and rode all the way to Palatka. Great trail that has a nice wide paved surface. A lot of places to stop and rest along the trail.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Great trail

November, 2019 by dannesty

My husband and I rode this trail a few days ago. Started just west of Vermont heights and rode 14 miles west and back again. The trail is mostly shaded through woods. A few miles in the sun by Hasting through farms. Ate breakfast in Hastings at Nirmas which was quite good! . Would like to come Bach another day when it’s a little cooler and ride the entire trail.

From this point to palatka is fifteen miles etc

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Wife and I started in Palatka, we crossed over the St Johns River and followed the trail to Hastings. Good trail, lots of farms to see.
