Great trail, we started from Twin Lakes parking area in Lake Geneva. Bathroom and lots of parking. Excellent surface, half shaded. We went the 20 miles east to end of trail (the mile markers are incorrect at this point, the trail ends at the "6" mile marker, eventually it will go into Palatka - hopefully). Presently you would have to jump on the highway (100) to go into Palatka. We rode back through Keystone to the end of the trail a few miles the other side of Keystone Heights. Did not find the Hometown Restaurant, but a nice lunch at Clydes (only open until 2 pm).
Deep pockets of lush vegetation and eternal springs interspersed with four-lane vehicle parallels make this trail a notch below a five. Take in all the glory of live oaks, turkeys, sabal palms, gators, deep green springs to offset the noise and speed of the bustle of the road on the Lake Monroe leg.
We dropped in at the parking area just west of Gemini Springs, then headed east to Green Spring, taking in the Debary Hall on the way out and the Enterprise Museum on the way back for a little East End history tour.
The west trek delivered us at Lake Monroe to a boisterous boat landing, then back to the lot for a 17-mile RT journey. Finished with a Sanford Farmer's Market visit and a Smithwicks at Sullivan's to finish a glorious Saturday in late August.
You'll never find nirvana with all the cars between the two spings on this let, but you will find a great slice of Florida. Soak it in.
Great 17-mile out and back trail with deep lush canopies and natural springs. Trail headed at Gemini Springs then went East to Green and back to Lake Monroe. Do yourself a favor and check out the the Enterprise Museum as a n offshoot path.
Wonderful , beautiful trail . Great riding surface . The tree canopies made riding bikes in Florida even better . Beautiful farms and great butterflies habit along the trail .
We rode the northernmost part of the trail. We parked at Barkley Dog Park in DeLand, which has bathrooms and is relatively close to the start of the trail. We rode north all the way to DeLeon Spring. The entrance to the Spring is about a mile from the end of the bike trail but is easy to access. $2 per bike to get in to the park, but it’s worth it to take a dip and cool off before heading back. Looking forward to doing other legs of the trail. 16 mile round trip!
We parked our car at Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park which has facilities. We left the park and turned right on a Parker Avenue to pick up the Greenway Bike Trail. What a beautiful ride. We saw a couple turtles, butterflies and other bicycle enthusiasts enjoying the peaceful, natural setting. Glad I support Rails to Trails. Agi & Ray
Picked up trail across from airport. No real trailhead, just a dirt parking area. That’s the only downside of the entire experience. At 7 am We rode 15 mile out and back. 90% shaded. Imagine it would be 75% shaded even later in day. Saw only 2 or 3 bicyclists and one walker the entire 30 miles. Well maintained, clean and swept except for a small 3 mile section. Stopped at Florahome trailhead where they have facilities. That’s the only trailhead we saw on our ride.
We rode from Rotary Park 10 miles toward Maytown and returned. The trail is wonderfully maintained and a joy to ride. Not crowded at all on a Saturday, so I was very surprised. Very easy trail with a single overpass was the only “bump” on the trail we encountered. Both shade and sun but need to make sure to take water depending on the length of your ride. I’d highly recommend this trail for a fitness ride or to enjoy the nature.
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.
I live about 35 miles south of Titusville but have driven there many times to ride the trail. I park in Veterans Memorial Park in Titusville on the river. From there it is only about a half mile to the trail head by the visitors center. Of course it is usually a longer ride if I am driving that far, like 40-60 miles. One I love is all the way to Osteen to eat breakfast at the Osteen Diner and back. That is just over 61 miles round trip. Heading down this trail, much of which is through the woods, on a cool morning with about a 7 AM start is the highlight of my week. (Note that from Titusville the first 5 miles or so crosses several roads but after Mims you are away from civilization and just enjoying nature).
We walk and ride (mostly walk) various segments of this wonderful trail as we are extremely fortunate to have it just minutes from our home. It is truly world-class; among the very best we have used across the country. And the recently installed awesome signage and mile markers are just icing on the cake. One aspect of signage is sadly lacking, however. Some simple reminders of trail safety rules and etiquette are sorely needed. We are routinely subjected to bikers riding two and even three abreast who force us to have to step off the trail - if coming towards us; or flying up behind us (usually with no passing notice) and leaving almost no room as they swerve around us. The problem has become much worse recently due to a lot of "amateurs" on the trail seeking relief from the virus situation who have no idea of the simple, common sense rules that are needed to keep us all safe. Volusia County has posted temporary signs directed mainly at COVID-19 distancing guidelines, but they are being mostly ignored. The problem escalates on weekends to the point we choose instead to walk neighborhoods with good sidewalk networks rather than put up with the frustration of dealing with too many rude, self-centered and uncaring bikers.
Loved riding this trail. It is more scenic in my opinion than the Jacksonville-Baldwin trail. And takes you through nice downtown palatka.
