2019-03-05 Beautiful Saturday allowed me to enjoy an equally beautiful bike ride through this trail - which by the way can connect to Casselberry Trail ( if you want to make it a longer ride experience) I enjoyed the scenery. It is an easy Walk, Skate, In-line Skate, Jog or Bike Ride Come check it out for yourselves :-)
This trail is great when it comes to biking in Florida. Beautiful scenery, lots of forest riding and farms. Few miles of highway riding. Can make this ride 50+ miles easily.
This is more like two trails. We parked at the Inglesa Road parking lot south of the main park entrance. The first mile is a wide concrete path that meanders through the forest for a scenic and leisurely ride. Once the entrance to the park is reached, you will need to pay the $2 per bike entry fee to continue. The concrete soon gives way to a sandy road that is a little more resistant to ride than the initial path. This made it a bit of a challenge for my disabled wife on her trike. Restrooms are available in the park and there is a general store where snacks can be purchased or you can book a fishing trip.
Rather than ride the trail multiple times, we elected to ride the wide sidewalks down Beach Street for additional miles. We encountered no other walkers or riders in this quiet neighborhood.
This trail is basically sidewalk, but it is wide enough to comfortably pass oncoming riders and walkers, even though my wife was riding a trike. Paralleling the river, the trail passes several small parks along the way, including some fishing piers. Near the Daytona Beach end, one park had very nice restrooms. Back at Cassen Park, we crossed the street to the library and since it was Thursday, had lunch at the farmer’s market.
I had a fun day riding and exploring this trail. I picked this trail up right from the Kewannee trail connection followed it then over to the SR436 (Semoran Blvd) crossing) and into Wirz Park and it’s BEAUTIFUL Loop. This is the South side of the trail. To connect to the North side it travels along a neighborhood road at is farthest east end (Wilshire Drive). The North side of this trail is just as pretty, be sure to continue on S Triplet Lake Drive - there is an AWESOME spot to just admire the lake at the crossing of S Triplet Lake and Triplet Lake Drive. Continue on from there to BEAUTIFUL SECRET LAKE PARK - you will be happy you did! Round trip both North & South Trails + Kewannee Trail came to about 22 miles.
My wife and I cycled from the beginning of the trail in Titusville to about 2.5 miles past the I-95 overpass (which is ~10 miles from the start). Total trip for us was only 24 miles but it was our first trip to the trail. We will definitely be back. We parked at the Coast-to-Coast Bike shop in town. There was no signage from there to the trailhead but we were able to ask another cyclist for directions (the bike shop was closed on Sunday!). The first ~8 miles had several road crossings, some with limited views so you have to slow to almost a complete stop to make sure it is safe to cross. At the intersection of the I-95 there is a parking lot. This is a better place to start your ride to avoid the street crossings as it gets rural when heading north/west from there. The trail is excellent, very smooth and flat. There are no rest rooms or benches anywhere along the first 12 miles so plan accordingly. Well worth the drive to get to this trail - this will become a regular spot for our riding!!! Only gave it 4 stars because no restrooms/benches yet and too many street crossings (but way better than riding on the road).
Great mix of woods & open areas. Trail is smooth & well maintained. Several bikers on the trail today. Surprised to discover Florida’s Potato Capital of Hastings.
We started our ride at the Killarney Station. There are rest rooms there as well as a place to rent bikes. We rode to Winter Park, which is about 5 miles, where we stopped at Crooked Can Brewery. There are many eateries there too. We continued our ride another 4 miles before heading back and enjoyed the varied scenery. Although the paths are paved and wide and primarily flat, there are a number of rolling hills that added to our workout. As we finished our 18-mile ride, this seemed more evident.
My husband and I ride the rail trails every weekend. This truly is a fun, safe, and beautiful trail. LOVE THIS TRAIL 💞
We rented our bikes at Killarney station and rode past Winter Garden. The trail was in good shape. We wound through neighborhoods lined with Live Oaks and Sycamores. The weather was perfect and the trail is mostly shaded and protected from strong winds. We rode on a Wednesday so it wasn’t too crowded. Highlights were the cute towns of Tildenville, Oakland and Winter Garden. Can’t wait to ride it again!
Pros: easy access, clean, well-maintained and numerous restroom/pit stop/playground areas, Winter Garden (cool town with lots of energy), varied scenery (neighborhoods, town, golf course, highway frontage section, ball fields), great for families, excellent trail markings (if you got into trouble or have a mechanical, it is very easy to tell someone where you are).
Cons: if you’re a serious cyclists there are too many slow sections (through town) and intersections to post a solid effort, two sketchy areas where it wouldn’t be wise to get off your bike, crowded in parts (not dangerously though-folks we passed were respectful and moved to the right), the northeast end of the trail was not well marked and we couldn’t figure out if we were lost or the trail had ended.
We finally got to ride the western part of the Palatka to St. Augustine Trail today that runs from Hastings to Palatka. I reviewed the eastern part, St. Augustine to Hastings a few weeks ago.
There is plenty of parking in Hastings on Main St. but we parked in the Post Office lot a block off Main for safety reasons. The trail goes right through town and you pick it up on Main St. The first part is through local neighborhoods where unfortunately some locals find it fun to break beer bottles on the trail so use caution. Once out of town you border farm fields with an open trail which would be very hot in warmer months. A few miles down the trail though you get into some shade but not much. It appears the trail is not much used as we saw only 4-5 other cyclists but it was a week day. As you get closer to Palatka it narrows and then becomes essentially a sidewalk and once in town crosses many parking lots so safety could be an issue. The trail near Palatka also becomes very trashy and industrial.
All in all though this is a great ride. If you wanted to go from St. Augustine (actually Vermont Heights about 3 miles out of St. A.) to Palatka it would be a very good ride mileage wise. There is beautiful farmland, creeks with very nice bridges across, and lots of wildlife, mainly large birds. In Hastings there is a fantastic restaurant named Norma D's Kitchen, "The Local Spot" that has great food. Right on Main Street about 100 yards from the trail, it is open only for breakfast and lunch and is well worth either starting there after a big breakfast or ending there for lunch. We had breakfast and were very happy with the food and service, and price! Our next ride we plan to start there and back for lunch.
