Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Great Trail

May, 2020 by swamp3815

Trail is well maintained. Nice parking areas with good small facilities at Imeson Trailhead. Baldwin has excellent facilities. Between mile markers 8 and 9 another timely facility. Halsema Rd parking has a few picnic tables and portable restroom. I was there on Memorial Day Sunday. It was crowded. Most riders practice road etiquette, but a few don’t...be careful. I will definitely do this trail again

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Nice Trail

May, 2020 by swamp3815

I started my ride on State Road 100 just west of Palatka Regional Airport. Very nice well maintained trail. My intentions were to make it to Keystone Heights. Unfortunately, after two knee replacements I found I was not ready to make the complete round trip. While I enjoyed the trail very much, a restroom would have been really nice to see.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Better than Baldwin Trail

May, 2020 by mferna731

Loved riding this trail. It is more scenic in my opinion than the Jacksonville-Baldwin trail. And takes you through nice downtown palatka.

Black Creek Trail

Better options

April, 2020 by mirlkman_tl

Like most other reviews of this trail, I agree its just too noisy being right next to traffic and too many crosswalks. It starts out nice and wooded but doesn't last near long enough before the first crosswalk intersects. Just too much going on with this trail.

Black Creek Trail

many options

April, 2020 by barber_art

The main trail is cool, but I especially like the many different wooded trail options at the beginning. They’re a lot more fun and rustic, plus they’re all shaded. Beautiful views, they give estimates on how long most of the trails are which are accurate. I noticed there are benches spaced throughout, and arrows marking the many different trail paths.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

A Great Ride

April, 2020 by gar.snider

You ever have one of those days when you are out exercising and everything is going really good. The weather is perfect, your spirits are high, you feel really good and your bike is running smooth and fast. April 26, 2020 was one of those days for me. It was a great ride. I picked up the trail just west of the Palatka Regional Airport. This trail is nice and smooth and has very little traffic. I highly recommend.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Relaxing Ride

April, 2020 by darspang

Great trail with nice rest areas along the trail.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

a mix

April, 2020 by miranda.eslick

I like the hut with the fan along the trail, much of the trail is exposed to the sun, but I love how it goes over the St Johns River and allows you to look for manatees. Saw a cottonmouth on the trail!

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

shady and peaceful

April, 2020 by miranda.eslick

Nice escape from being stuck inside

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.
