Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Nice Trail

February, 2020 by mhodges5

I was recently in the Jacksonville area and rode the trail. Trail is very nice from baldwin to the end. Well maintained and nice scenery

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Very Pleasant Trail

February, 2020 by jstasey

Well signed. A few hills. We took the short side trips to see Paynes Prairie State Park sights. Trail side tools and air pump was a plus. Some road crossings but generally they were little used roads. Busier towards Gainesville side on a Saturday morning. My wife and I would definitely do it again.

Amelia Island Trail

Amelia Island

January, 2020 by pjpaul39_tl

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.

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.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-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.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Beautiful scenery

It's a very peaceful and quiet ride the only thing I would want more is signage indicating the miles from and to
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.

Nice ride....

October, 2019 by blundgren70

Rode it today,9/30/2019. Nice canopied trail for most of it,which is important on a 90 degree day. Started on the Jax side of the trail. On the way back saw a few wild turkeys on the trail at about the 3 mile marker. Tip-bring plenty of water bottles if you intend on doing the full trail.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Favorite trail in the Jax area

August, 2019 by db75_75

Just moved here from Pasco County on the west coast of Florida where I was spoiled by the Suncoast / Starkey trails. Only been on two trails, St. Aug to Palatka (which i found depressing, and annoying playing frogger across two 4 lane divided highways and a stretch next to a manure plant).

This trail was a breath of fresh air though. It's mostly wooded, and sheltered from the winds for the most part. There are two spots to get fresh, clean, cold and GOOD TASTING water. Being creative with the routes to get 30, 35, 40 and 50 mile rides.

Only complaint is that there are sections that are very bumpy, and until you find the right lines you're going to get rattled around on a road bike with narrow tires...

UF Campus Greenway

Hybrid urban/rural feel

Nice ride

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

beauty and serenity

June, 2019 by davemarshall54

There are parts of this trail that take your breath away, with lakes and streams and boardwalks that take you out into nature. The trail is well maintained with lots of shade. It’s awesome!
