Four Freedoms Trail

Good Potential but Poorly Maintained

May, 2022 by bobsteele

Rode in March 2022 and could not enjoy the ride because of all the limbs and twigs on the trail. Many stops to clear the way. Trail has good potential but because of the unknown condition at the time, I would check before using.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Western half of it is under construction still. Looks like it's almost done. We did sneak under the barricade (Not that I'd recommend it, we upset a Duvall workman). We were able to ride the whole trail.

Four Freedoms Trail

enjoyable over all.

March, 2022 by cyclingtom2014

Rode 8 miles out from Madison and back. Lots of tree debris and some really bumpy spots. Had to concentrate on riding. We weren’t bothered at all by the road noise and thought the variety of scenery and the elevation changes kept it interesting.

Ichetucknee to O'Leno Trail

Bike/walk

March, 2022 by dsznd5f6fj

I enjoy this trail for walking and biking. I live close by and recommend this trail especially near the Itchetucknee River. It would be great if there were a safe way to cross the 27 bridge. I’m hoping that the old railroad bridge will be added to connect this trail to Branford or add a pedestrian/bike path to the existing HWY 27 bridge.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

This trail is 29 miles long. It's a very safe ride, with a few road crossings, but not bad at all. Mostly shaded asphalt all the way through. Currently under construction, unfortunately.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Great Ride

February, 2022 by jimheinzman

This is a great ride. Its a little crowded on the Gainesville side, but beyond that very peaceful. The surface does need a little maintenance. The wood bridges probably need some new wood and there are several root spots.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

overall great trail

February, 2022 by jross8086

We started Imeson trailhead, great not to have to worry about cars, however we passed 2 all terrain motorized off road vehicles on the trail! Kind of scary seeing 4x4s coming towards you. Will try to get a picture and report them next time. Overall love this trail.

Four Freedoms Trail

recent repairs

February, 2022 by skyesdad

Went for a 16 mile run (8 out and back) from Madison while wife rode bike. The paved path was recently cleared of debris and several bumps from tree roots had been repaired with new asphalt. Not the most exciting of trails but it gets you off of the roads and offers some shade.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Loud

February, 2022 by waterdeva

The surface is great, vegetation is nice, but you’re riding within 75-100 feet of a highway with constant car and truck traffic. Anything but quiet and serene as the description implies.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Closed for Paving Feb-Spring 2022

February, 2022 by bentfins

This is a great trail but it is currently closed for major work.
