Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Clay

June, 2024 by 85osprey

Rode this trail from Keystone Heights east for about 12 miles (6 out and back) years ago not long after it opened. Today, I rode west from the trail head in Keystone Heights (located on SR 100 one block west of SR 21 between the CVS and Wendy's). The trail went 9 miles west toward Lake Butler before it ended at Navarre St in Hampton. There is a decent sized green space area off the road for parking if wanting to begin the ride at this end. The first three miles from K.H. had quite a few road crossings and then the next six miles had a few more. Most of this section was shaded (I started at 8:30). There were a handful of cyclists, one runner, and one walker with a baby stroller. Going east from K.H., the first couple of miles had many road crossings. Afterward, most were dirt roads leading to people's property. Three miles from the trail head is the Keystone Soccer Club and six miles is a Sunoco Store for those who might need bathroom facilities. After that, there was nothing until the Florahome Trailhead at 11 miles. This is where I turned around and headed back for a 40 mile ride. This section of the ride was barely shaded (after 10:00 by this time) and I didn't pass any cyclists and only a few walkers/runners. This was surprising. However, I did come across at the Florahome trail head a small group of cyclists that I rode back with. That was nice. Overall, the pavement that I rode was in excellent condition. Next time I ride this trail, I'll probably start at Florahome and ride to Palatka and back.

Wonderful trail. Lots of shade over 2/3 of the trail.

Suwannee River Greenway at Branford

Trail Getting a Makeover

May, 2024 by gary.kirkland

For several years the paved surface has been in disrepair, but it is being reapaved. The section from the north end to the intersection of U.S. 129 is nearing completion and it appears the project will include a bridge over the Ichetucknee River.

Friendly Folks

Hi everyone, My great niece, her friend and myself parked at the most westward trail head. We had a nice ride, visited Camp Milton, saw a beautiful Blue bird, continued on to the Imeson Rd. Trail Head. Turned around and on the way back we had the pleasure of seeing a deer on the edge of the trail.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Great Trail

April, 2024 by diedrich

I had to add my 2 cents, don’t be discouraged by a previous review talking about steep hills and bumpy pavement in the 5 miles near Gainesville. I rode it in the pre dawn hours and took it really slow so as not to out run my light. Yes there are bumps - I had no issues and my tires are 23s. As far as hills, this path is what we call in the Midwest flat. Maybe some steep hills for Florida, but again not a real issue. Enjoy it - I look forward to riding it again someday!

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

The tale 9f 2 trails

February, 2024 by scottbholmer

The west end towards Gainesville is quite a bit different than the east end at Hawthorne. The Hawthorne end offers good cycling with a road bike. The Gainesville end not so much. It has a lot of severe tree root damage, sharp curves, and suprisingly steep hills. Once you get thru that in the first 5 miles the trail straightens out and runs parallel to a busy and noisy road. Great.
We rode it 3 times and finally agreed it wasn't worth the effort. With the 2 overlooks onto Paynes Prairie and the Al Lucha trail within the first 3 miles, this end of the trail lends itself to walking or riding an ebike. The ebike negates the hills and would have larger tires that would absorb all the bumpiness.
The east end was rural with fewer people and was more suitable for someone wanting to actually bike.

disappointed

I agree with another post, women should be very aware of areas of this trail. Many young men on drugs it appears in areas where things could go bad in a hurry

Not Great :(

February, 2024 by brookeypav

Rollerskates this entire trail in October of 2023. Sadly, not great quality always in surface. Lots of homeless tents along the trail. Ends by airport. Busy road next to it. No cool scenery. Glad I did it but not planning to ever do it again.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Beautiful & Quiet

February, 2024 by brookeypav

Loved this trail as a distance skater! Did 42 miles on rollerskates. Started Keystone Heights in the morning. Quiet morning and saw the sunrise over the lakes. It was beautiful and just a quiet skate. Lots of little shrews & marsh rabbits spotted. Florahome is really cute. The surface is amazing…was perfect for skating. Averaged around 9 mph on rollerskates. Will be recommending this trail to any other skaters…just so serene :,)

Suwannee River Greenway at Branford

Could have been a great rail trail.

February, 2024 by mhornick1

About a mile south of Branford the greenway leaves the old rail bed to run parallel highway 27. Why? The rail bed would have been off the road and a superior base for asphalt. Beautiful day and a nice ride to Fort White and back where from shock fork got a workout. Next Fort White to O’Leno SP on the Ichetucknee to O’Leno Trail.

Suwannee River Greenway at Branford

Road two trails

February, 2024 by mhornick1

Rode Suwanee Greenway from Ivey Memorial Park in Branford to Fort White and back. Didn’t know they were to trails. We enjoyed the ride as the weather was perfect. As previously reported, this greenway needs a complete re-construction. The greenway ends at the Ichetucknee river bridge. You take your life in your hands as you have to travel on the road across the bridge to Ft. White.
