We rode the northern section of the trail, from DeLeon Springs to W. Minnesota Street. A good portion of this trail is a narrow sidewalk. We had breakfast at Ponce DeLeon State Park (you cook your own pancakes) and then we hit the trail. Next time we will ride the next segment that starts near Lake Beresford Park. We checked it out, lots of amenities.
Rode this today starting on the east end into Palatka and back. Saw maybe 10 people on the trail the whole time. Lots of beautiful canopied sections. Since it was not sunny today the other sections were just fine. Will definitely ride this route again!
We rode this trail today and it's one of our favorites so far! Smooth paved trail, we saw a deer, turtle and snake!
So relaxing. Lots of shaded areas and rest stops. Definitely recommended!!
This is one of the most naturally beautiful segments of trail in the area. That said, there are many segments that are not complete yet, and there are many segments that are showing their age, with treacherous rough surfaces, cracked pavement, potholes. The whole area could use some love, but it’s so beautiful. Better suited to walking/jogging than cycling simply because it’s twisty and worn out in places.
I have been cycling this wonderful trail for a number of years and it is sad to see the deteriorating condition of some parts of the trail due to a lack of maintenance. The trail is usually covered with debris in places and the weeds are taking over parts of the trail. Tree roots have made the asphalt surface so rough in spots that it is actually dangerous.
We started in palatka. Highlight of the trail was right at the beginning at the bridge. We parked at beat western as the trailhead was a bit sketchy. Once crossing bridge path was a little rough for a mile. After that the trail was great for the next five miles. Lots of shade. Very hot day. The trail then runs along 207 for about three miles and the traffic was a bit loud. Overall it was a good time.
We rode this trail in January of 2021. Well maintained and pleasant to ride. We highly recommend this trial.
We rented ebikes to try them before we get ours and this trail was so much fun. The hills and it’s shaded made it enjoyable. Highly recommend.
Very beautiful, smooth, shady, and well marked trail. Started at the Santos trailhead. It was 151/2 miles to the end. Turn around is a cul-de-sac for the 15+ miles back. Went on a Sunday in the summer and had a mix of walkers, runners and cyclists. No water or restrooms except at the Santos trailhead.
The south part if this trail is one of the best scenic “woodsy” bike trails. You want it to go on longer. But Tomoka state where the map says it starts isn’t a bike trail. Very scenic and pretty but mostly for fishing and camping. I recommend doing the asphalt trail in the woods from Tomoka state park to Inglesa Ave. or park at Inglesa and ride to Tomoka state park.
We were Rving at the State Park and completed a 34-mile ride using the 6-mile connector to get to the trail in Keystone Heights. If I were to do it again I would have parked in Keystone Heights as the 6-mile connector is adjacent to SR-100 and very uneventful. The area south of Putnam Hall was really pretty, but like many of these trails you do see the road, houses etc. Great surface for riding. We did see plenty of Gopher Tortoises out of their burrows, Fox Squirrels, and even saw a large brown snake going into a GT burrow.
