Ichetucknee to O'Leno Trail

Nice Trail!

January, 2018 by dmckee622

We did enjoy the trail. We would not recommend it for road bikes. We could see that it might be a hot ride during the hot and humid summer months, but it was fine when we rode it (January). We didn't notice any real bad places in the pavement, but maybe a few "rough" spots. We would recommend riding into the Ichetucknee Park and riding to the river. There are also restrooms and a small store there.

Nature Coast State Trail

Great Scenic Trail!

January, 2018 by dmckee622

We really enjoyed this trail! We took two days to complete the trail, there and back. Fanning Springs is a great place to base your ride. The trail to Chiefland is more covered by trees and might be a cooler ride during hotter weather or during the hotter part of the day. The trail to Trenton is more open to the sun, especially during the afternoon. The trail to Cross City is covered by trees for about half and some open the other half. We really enjoyed all sections of the trail. We also would highly recommend the Lighthouse Restaurant in Fanning Springs and the Taste of Dixie Diner in Cross City.

Suwannee River Greenway at Branford

Nice, but could be better maintained in places.

January, 2018 by dmckee622

This trail is rated 4 stars, but just barely. The northern section is very nice, but had some limbs and such on the trail. The eastern section has lots of rough spots and holes in the pavement, especially east of where US 129 crosses the trail. We rode recumbent trikes and it was hard not to hit the bad spots. This would not be a good trail for road bikes. Overall we did enjoy the trail.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Great Trail!

January, 2018 by dmckee622

This is a very nice trail. From the Gainesville side, it starts off a little hilly, but settles down after about 2 1/2 miles. The trail is very well maintained and nearly all has a nice canopy of trees. You have the impression of being in a nice forest. Even the portion that runs alongside the road, has trees between the road and the trail to give you the impression that you are surrounded by woods. Would highly recommend this trail to everyone!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Big things happening in 2018

December, 2017 by otherland

Another 5 miles of trail is being constructed east of Roberts Lane. This construction should be done around summer of 2018. The trail will then have a bit over 25 miles of continuous pavement. Not including the trail up to Gold Head State Park. This new section will bring the trail past county road 309C where you can then hop on a short 2 mile trail that will take you to a park with picnic tables and bathrooms (that are not always open).

Also coming in late spring early summer. Construction of a pavilion with picnic tables & a new playground will be completed at the Florahome trail-head. Thanks to the hard work of local residents and donations from business's..

Four Freedoms Trail

Thank you for providing this great trail!

December, 2017 by griffindd

Biked the entire trail twice this week. Trail is well maintained but there are some places where tree root upheavals may create problems with your bike if you approach them too fast. Most of these have been marked with bright orange spray paint. Advise not to bike too fast so you can see the bad spots in the shady areas. Otherwise a scenic and pleasant ride. Thank you for providing this great trail!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Correction on previous review

December, 2017 by lmcorey

My review, submitted December 2017, contains an error. I was referring to Hurricane Irma, not Matthew, in my review.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Extending trail from Robert's Lane to the Palatka area

December, 2017 by lmcorey

My husband and I love to ride our bikes on this trail. We noticed that the trail is being extended from Robert's Lane toward the Palatka area. Not sure how far it will go, but we can see work being done from Carraway all the way down to the road across from CR 309 C on the outskirts of Palatka. We are looking forward to it being completed.

They have cleaned up the trail since Hurricane Matthew even though there are still some trees down in the woods alongside the trail. There is minor flooding in one part of the trail between Grandin and Putnam Hall, but you can easily drive your bike through it. It's still beautiful and now has water in fields that were previously dry and now look like lakes!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Lots of work needed

November, 2017 by danabrodbeck

Lots of hurricane damage and closed sections between Palatka and Florahome.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

First timers here- nice place

November, 2017 by coconutbay

We've looked forward to this ride for a month. It was a nice ride as described. Didn't see a lot of animals on the trail, but somebody's yard held goats and horses and that was nice to see.

The weather was 59 degrees yesterday.

Hills were do-able with our recumbent trikes, but first gear was a so climb for sure. Loved the downhills.

Saw no signs on the trail for restrooms. Discovered that one portable style toilet looked just like a pump house from the trail. Wonder why there are no signs?

INSIDER INFORMATION:

+Budget 90 minutes (if you average 10 miles per hour) to get from Bouleware park to Diane's BBQ. We began pedaling at 10:10 and perfectly timed lunch.

+Street crossings on this trail are safe-most are driveways. No worries.

+At the Hawthorne trailhead, if you want to cross US Hwy 301 to have lunch, follow this path: Right on SE 71st Ave, left on SE 221 Street, then right on the next street (not named on the map!) so you easily get your bike over the railroad tracks. I looked at the satellite photos so would live to write a review. There's no traffic signal, so hold your breath and cross the southbound traffic and wait in the middle to cross the northbound.

+Hawthorne is tiny, and sadly, lacking much in the way of commerce. Good news for us is that an Ace Hardware is there in case you break something and need some hardware to get back.

+If you start at the Bouleware park, check out the old building that was closed in 1948. There are restrooms there and water fountains inside. You can smell the history from a building that was closed during Harry Truman's presidency.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Palatka - Lake Butler

November, 2017 by pjbradfield

Very nice trail, especially from Florahome to Key Stone Heights. One section has some minor flooding but it easily waded especially if you take your shoes and socks off.

The section from Palatka to about 6 miles west of the town has yet to be started.

Four Freedoms Trail

I just rode this trail

October, 2017 by legacycycles

We just finished riding this entire trail. Is it perfect no, but it’s definitely rideable, an a lot less crowded than others. It is maintained but it’s mainly covered by shade tress, so guess what? There are leaves, a corns and root upheaval. If you can’t handle that then I suggest sticking to riding exercise bikes in the comfort an safety of the gym. If I can do it on a 26in mountain bike pulling a 4 yo in a trailer (75lbs total) an average 11mph. Anyone with a road or hybrid should have no issues. Scenery wise this trail is beautiful. And although not perfect in terms of conditions, it’s well worth the trek.
