We rode this trail in January of 2021. Well maintained and pleasant to ride. We highly recommend this trial.
We were Rving at the State Park and completed a 34-mile ride using the 6-mile connector to get to the trail in Keystone Heights. If I were to do it again I would have parked in Keystone Heights as the 6-mile connector is adjacent to SR-100 and very uneventful. The area south of Putnam Hall was really pretty, but like many of these trails you do see the road, houses etc. Great surface for riding. We did see plenty of Gopher Tortoises out of their burrows, Fox Squirrels, and even saw a large brown snake going into a GT burrow.
Went down last week and rode with my daughter. It being a train route the trail is arrow-straight and pancake-flat. Saw folks rocking aero bikes and kids with training wheels. Lots of services available along the route. Well done!!
A lot of this asphalt trail is not shaded, some running just to the side of the road.
This trail was the third this week. We are tired, but- ONE more on the way home! It was nice, shady, had some bridges to go under. It truly is 14.5 so 29 round trip. It was smooth for the most part. It is a well liked trail and we saw many cyclists and walkers.
My husband and I rode the entire length and back of this trail today. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a ride. We had a heck of a ride to Baldwin with the strong headwinds the entire ride. The east and west trailheads were very basic. The east end had a bathroom. The west end had a port a pot. Just in from the west end about 3 miles you will find the Baldwin Train Depot, we stopped and rested a bit there. There was a bathroom at the nature preserve a little further along. Close to the midway point was another trailend. The ride was nice, but not much to look at. We did see some gopher tortoises, I spotted a. Deer, but that was about it.
We had such a wonderful hike here and were able to take our dog and it was so beautiful.
This trail is gorgeous! Lots of shade, a steady cool breeze, and so many bunny rabbits! We timed our ride to watch the sunset from the bridge on the way back. It was stunning!
What a wonderful ride from Baldwin to mile marker 5 and back. With my bad knee, I have to keep it under 20 miles, and this was a lovely mostly shady ride.
Did the 14.5 miles on my ebike taking many photos along the way, Restrooms are available along the way, Definitely a must do.
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!
We rode the loop and made a few off shoots for lunch and see a few sites. Very easy 95% paved trail. Parts of it you can ride the hard sand right on the coast, others your on a very hard packed sand/ dirt trail. It mostly paved and wide enough to allow on coming bikers to freely pass by. Numerous restrooms and benches. A great trail for a cool day. When it’s hot, parts of it are not shades at all and those areas would be uncomfortable. All the cross sections off the paved trail are fantastic shade and a fun leisurely ride.
