Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway (Santos Trailhead to CR 200)

Odd Trail

March, 2020 by pierceja

Rode this trail a couple times. It just seems to be a collection of three circles that intertwine. You just keep going in circles or in my case, connecting two loops with a figure 8. Confusing trails here. This trail is okay. Surfaces are good and plenty wide but not very pretty.

Santos Trail

March, 2020 by pattyenglish344

We had walked at Santos on the forest trails and always enjoyed the beautiful forest. After it was paved we decided to bike it. We did our first ride yesterday. Beautiful ride, great pine smells and birds singing their songs!!

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice Ride

March, 2020 by twopalms_2

We rode the entire trail and enjoyed the variety of northern Florida scenery--forest, farmland, and swamp. Some sections parallel the highway but are separate from it with only a couple of well marked highway crossings. Our only question is -- where are all the people?? There were so few riders out on this pretty Sunday afternoon. Not complaining. Just saying.

Excellent trail. Many things to do other than the main body trail which offers many options for multiple trips.

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.

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.

Lehigh Greenway Rail Trail

Lehigh Trail is a “Gem”

January, 2020 by gar.snider

First time on this trail Jan 2020. Great trail for a good leisure bike ride. Well maintained and a wide paved trail with bike maintenance stations at several locations along the trail.

Loved it

This is a great trail. Like the curves and gentle hills. The scenery is perfect. Makes for a perfect 30+ mile ride.

My New Favorite Bike Ride!

November, 2019 by clcpsalm23_tl

The Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway is the epitome of what a bike trail should be.The asphalt blacktop looks newly paved and is almost perfectly smooth the entire 15+ mile ride. It is plenty wide for two way traffic and passing with lots of nice curves and some hills passing through some truly beautiful woodlands in Central Florida just outside of Ocala. Wildlife abounds along its entire length. An added bonus is the 100's of miles of mountain bike trails that intersect along its length in many places. It is super well maintained and marked throughout on the pavement for any emergency that may need reporting. There are only a couple of road crossings with the majority being underpasses and a very unique overpass over Interstate 75. Anywhere there is a blind corner there are large round cornering mirrors and signs to notify you to slow appropriately. There are water and toilet facilities at the Santos Trailhead and further down their is an equestrian campground that also has accessible facilities. If you plan for a down and back ride it is a great workout and make sure to bring some hydration. A large part of the ride is shaded but there is enough sun exposure to warrant sunscreen. All and all, this is a top teir bike trail and worth the drive to get there if you have to travel. Truly My New Favorite Bike Trail! Highly Recommended!!!
