Awesome!

Awesome!

Spring to Spring Trail

Wonderful Trail

July, 2018 by randycroce

We are new to riding in Florida, and after searching Trailink, I found that this awesome trail was only a few miles from our place. We decided to park in Osteen and take the south end of the trail, before crossing over the bridge over 415. The trail is well maintained with bathrooms located in all of the parks which the trail rolls through. Our overall experience was a wonderful experience. Meeting a few turtles, road runners and yes, some really nice humans too along the way was pretty cool. The aqua colored Sulphur spring was incredible to see as it seemed to actually glow. When we rolled into Gemini Springs, it was amazing to see the large fish swimming below us in the crystal clear waters. The final destination was the added trail around Lake Monroe, which had it's share of sunlight, and but also had much more of Gods Balconies to shield us from the sun. Because of the weather, we had to cut our ride short on day one as we barely got back to our car before the storm hit. Day 2 was a perfect day with loads of sunshine, so we started at the northern end with plans to cover what we hadn't seen on day one, but ended up riding the entire trail once we got rolling. Thanks to all responsible for this wonderful trail.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Twin Lakes Park

June, 2018 by kevinkaren

Parked at Twin Lakes Park on a weekday before school was out, so nobody around. Felt like a safe area, picnic shelter and restroom but no shade to park under. Flat trail (of course), wide, smooth pavement. Came across one short stretch of trail that was underwater, but only a few inches deep and I coasted slowly across without getting my feet wet.
Rode east to the very abrupt end, and saw that it appears construction is actively taking place or will take place this summer. Florahome has nice new facilities and feels very welcoming. West from Twin Lakes Park became suburban and quickly more urban. I turned around at the first stoplight and rode back to the car generally satisfied with the ride.

Lehigh Greenway Rail Trail

Nice Ride

June, 2018 by rpbboz

My husband and I thought we were taking 6.6 mile bike ride as that is what the description said. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was much longer that that. If I had known, I would have planned to ride longer but with circumstances being what they were, we had to cut it short at 22 miles.

The path is scenic for the most part with very little stopping and starting which is what I like. I was hoping for more of a nature ride but got enough that I was satisfied. It is flat which makes it an easy ride and you can do as much or as little of it as you want. Finding the parking was a little challenging and of course there were no restrooms where parked.

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

Be careful

May, 2018 by chasen214

Others have warned on here of car break-ins, but recently a woman was held at gunpoint at the sweet water outlook and was demanded to give up her bike, phone, and wallet. This is a beautiful trail, but now I don’t feel as safe riding on it.

2018 Construction Coming along

May, 2018 by otherland

Lots of good things happening on the trail in 2018. The construction east of Roberts Lane is coming along nicely and should be finished in the fall of 2018. At this time the bridge over Rice Creek is close to being finished.

Also in the news..

The ribbon cutting for the NEW pavilion at the Florahome trail head took place on May 23, 2018. A really nice pavilion with 4 tables (handicap accessible). A nice spot to get out of the sun.... Or rain in Florida.

Also a ribbon cutting for the NEW playground at the Florahome trail head took place on May 20, 2018. A really nice shaded area for the kids to play.

Coming soon to the trail head an information kiosk filled with history of the park and grounds that used to be the Florahome train depot. The park that the pavilion and playground are a part of is called Palmetto Park.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Palatka- Lake Butler

April, 2018 by nkstravelfl

The trail was fantastic! Parked at Twin Lake Road and headed toward Palatka. Some minimal debri but smooth cycling with plenty of wild life. I’m really looking forward to the trail being complete so I can cycle safely to St Augustine. April 20, 2018

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Always worth the trip

April, 2018 by bikechopper

We have rode this trail many times but not lately. It is an 82 mile drive from our home. It is still worth the drive, You always have the feel of the old rail line as the trail sits atop a tram bed with the ditch on both sides, it reminds you of the work that went into building all our railroads. Bugs were only bad if you stopped for a long time. It was Easter Sunday and it was well used but not crowded, We saw two rattlesnakes and many birds. The description on the page says there is plenty of restaurants and stores at both ends, this is not true. In fact there is none. The construction of the US 301 bypass by Baldwin does not really affect your ride. If you are in North Florida this trail is always a good trip,

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Very nice Trail but beware of vandals

March, 2018 by mschmidt55

Rode this trail yesterday, end to end. A great trail but... when I returned to my car at the Roberts Lane parking lot I discovered my car window shattered. Nothing was stolen, just pure vandalism. Park somewhere else.

Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail

Great Ride

March, 2018 by powerfade

My buddy and I road the full length and back (40 miles) this month, 3/2018. Due to the length of this trail the number of bikers/walkers were spread out so was not at all croweded. The flooded area mentioned by previous review has subsided and is not an issue. We would love to see a timeline on when the east trailhead to Palatka portion will be completed. It appears work is in full swing and even on Saturday the crew was working. This is a great trail with only a few road crossings except for in Keystone Heights.
