The east trailhead is an unmarked, unpaved sandlot just past the airport with no facilities. It looks like a sketchy place to park if you aren't familiar with the area. Trail mile markers begin at 6.0 miles here.
There are several unmarked and facility-less parking areas before you get to Florahome, and there are no services of any kind until mile 18.5 at Florahome, where there is a pit toilet, water fountain, picnic tables, and convenience store. There are no services until Twin Lakes Community park in Keystone Heights, about mile marker 27. The trail passes right by Walgreens in Keystone Hts, mile marker 30.
The trial is awesome: straight, relatively flat, and shaded most of the way from Palatka to Keystone Heights, which is about 24 miles. it parallels Hwy 100 but is separated but a buffer strip of trees.
The parking lot is a little crazy, but fear not 90% of the crowd will be using the many many off road trails. Park in the second lot, and remember the off-road trails start under the arch, but the pave trail starts at the restrooms. We found no open restrooms after the trail head, so be prepared to be self sufficient. The end of the trail is just a culdesac with no services. There are very few access points along the trail, but a huge number of intersecting horse and off road bike trails.
Great Trail! smooth surface, lots of curves and gentle grades made for a very pleasant ride. We have ridden trails across the country and would rate this one behind only the Mickelson Trail in the Black Hills and the Heritage Trail in Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore in Michigan.
My husband and I rode this trail for our first time today. It’s a very nice, level trail with lots of shade. There are mile markers posted along the way which is pretty nice. I saw a handful of bike maintenance stations to air up your tires, small repairs. The only bathroom was located just north of where the trailhead entrance is on the east end of the trail. There are benches along the path. I wish there were a couple of picnic areas, but that’s just me! We parked at Belle Terre Parkway and rode to the east end and back. Our next ride will include Hwy 1 to Belle Terre Pkwy. Looking forward to another ride!
Roadway is smooth curvy, hilly and scenic.
We parked at Humane Society Rd and did the whole trail. 90% is right next to the road so no fresh air - exhaust fumes instead. One section you have to bike on the road. We didn’t like that as the cars are going very fast, even though it’s supposed to be 35mph! There are pretty trees and quite a lot of shade, but I wouldn’t chose to ride this trail again anytime soon.
This trial is mostly nice for biking, but the one negative is the 1 mile section of wooden bridge. The slats are quite worn, noisy and hard on a road bike with thin tires. A mountain bike, however, would handle it well. You definitely wouldn’t want children to get ahead of you on trail as the crosswalks can be busy and dangerous.
Great trail! Nice wide paved path perfect for road bikes. Nice rolling hills, enough to challenge your legs a little on the way up and then you can enjoy the quick pace on the way down. The guy that wrote the review about the figure eight path went to the wrong trail head... he was on a different path. I almost made the mistake by going to the path he wrote about but I’m glad I went to the trail at 3080 SE 80th, had a great ride there. Highly recommended!
“Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway”. 65-75 degrees no breeze crystal blue skies. Perfect Florida winter weather on a perfect Trail for a tandem. Start at Santos Trialhead for the round trip. Probably the best trail we’ve done in Florida. Part of the unfinished Coast to Coast greenway. Curvy and rolling, canopies. Perfect asphalt, but if you are into mountain bikes, there are probably a hundred miles of dirt trail offshoots.
The trail officially begins at N 1st St and Main. This part is not so interesting. The interesting part starts at the railroad station and going north and then west from there. Parking is easy at the railroad station, too.
This is a nice trail running from St. Augustine to Palatka. We started at the trailhead in Vermont Heights and we rode to Palatka. The trail is well maintained, smooth and restrooms along the trail. We enjoyed this trail very much and if we’re in the area again we would probably ride this again.
Rode this trail from St. Augustine to Palatka last week. It’s a nice trail, smooth and wide and well maintained. There’s restrooms/water along the trail. Parts of the trail parallel a busy road/highway so take care in crossing as the trail crisscrosses the highway. We rode to Palatka and had an early dinner. It was a nice trail! Bonus was going past the town of Hastings, Florida where it was called, Florida’s Potato Capital!
