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

great trail for biking

January, 2019 by john.gately8

This is a wonderful trail for biking, running, dog walking, etc. great for road bikers and mountain bike trails galore off the paved trail. Everyone in Marion country should try it & you’ll be coming back as often as you can.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

A nice ride

January, 2019 by billbrockman

We stayed the night in a nearby motel and this trail was a blessing after a day driving. Mostly flat, well paved, with only a few roads to cross with due caution. Perfect January weather helped!

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Great ride

January, 2019 by bethannsirois

Enjoyed the ride very much. The trail overall is in great shape and very smooth. Our only issue was after starting in Keystone Heights heading toward Palatka, the trail was completely underwater and impassable after only 7 miles so we had to turn around. I would put in on the Palatka end next time.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Hastings to Palatka ride.

January, 2019 by cfinnn1

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.

Spring to Spring Trail

Scenic but stretches are broken up!

December, 2018 by timbee205

I started at Lake Beresford Park which has a loop trail good for maybe 2+ miles. Head south towards Blue Springs which is an interesting place especially viewing the river & watching the manatees swim around where you could otherwise swim in summer. Surprisingly lots of people at the park for a weekday morning. Further down the trail there was some construction going on to extend the trail; after that riding on a wide sidewalk for mile or 2. I'm not sure how you'd get to the southern section via bike because of very busy road in DeBary.

So I packed up the bike & drove to Monroe Park and headed north & east. First few miles were very scenic over a boardwalk. The trail is good until just after Gemini Springs where it parallels a very busy road for a few miles but becomes a peaceful, scenic trail by the time you hit Green Springs. Here is meets up with the East Coast rail trail that goes another 7 miles or so to the gap.

It will be nice once this trail is continuous and also connects up with short stretches in DeLand where there's a lot of jumping around on sidewalks, trails, roads, etc. Some signs would be nice to help navigate. All-in-all a nice trail but needs connectivity work.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Pre-Christmas Ride

December, 2018 by pjbradfield

I rode from "downtown" Keystone Heights east through Florahome and onward through the new section of trail. I stopped at the 8 mile trail marker and think the trail is finished through to Palatka but had to turn back due to lack of time.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

New middle section complete.

December, 2018 by cfinnn1

We road the trail today from St. Augustine, actually Vermont Heights where there is parking and bathrooms, to Hastings. The section between Spuds and Hastings is now complete so you can ride all the way to Palatka. The new section is fantastic with some great bridges and farm fields. Most of the trail has plenty of shade also. There is still some finish work to be done but it is completely surfaced and ready to ride. It was great seeing so many people out today from serious riders to families on cruiser bikes. If you do the ride plan on being in Hastings early morning and hit up Norma's Kitchen for breakfast. We were not able to get there at that time but will plan around that next time.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Great ride

December, 2018 by wroundey

Ride this trail today on our tandem. I had been told about the unfinished gap between Spuds and Hastings. The gap is now completed and you can ride the trail the entire distance.

Spring to Spring Trail

Nice start & end, trail itself so-so

November, 2018 by buffettbike

Rode from Green Springs Park to Gemini Springs Park on 11/24/18. Both parks were worthwhile stops. The trail itself between the parks mostly ran along a road and was not scenic at all. Drive your car to the parks and bike somewhere else!

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

First time and did it all.

November, 2018 by keala_tl

We love hiking in the mountains and sadly that is not really something we can do here in FL. So my husband, 2-year-old and I went out for a fun family day. The trail was great! Friendly people, well maintained and overall a great day. We stopped and walked around the Civil War camp and went off to have lunch in Baldwin. I just wish they had signed it a bit better, we went all the way to the end and had to turn around because we missed the town.

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

Very Safe Trail

November, 2018 by punkypenny

I really like this trail. It is shady most of the way. It crosses a few small roads in the beginning. The rest of the way it tunnels under roads and there is bridge that goes over I-75. There are mirrors at turns so you can see if anyone is coming. Clearly marked signs and crosswalk where other trails crossover. The entire trail is 15.66 miles and ends at 200 for now. There are plans to extend it to Dunnellon. Theres a Walmart a mile and a half from the end. I the scenery is beautiful and there were a couple of people out riding horses. Overall I felt very safe on this trail.
