Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

A little rough in places

February, 2024 by suesettle08

We rode this trail on January 30, 2024 from the Vermont Heights Bike St. Augustine Trailhead to where the trail crosses 207 between the Cora C. Harrison Preserve Trailhead and the Bull-Hit Ranch. The trail is the best when it is away from 207 and there are stretches that are very bumpy where tree roots have pushed up the asphalt. There are several roads to cross as well.

Lehigh Greenway Rail Trail

Great Ride

February, 2024 by suesettle08

We rode this trail on Jan. 29, 2024. Based on the directions above, we couldn't find the trailhead and were fortunate to see the poles marking the end of the trail near the intersection of Royal Palm Parkway and Highway 1. We parked in front of a bike shop in a small strip mall and rode the sidewalk directly to the trail. About half a mile down the trail, we saw the bridge linking the trailhead to the trail. Farther down the trail we saw a spur to the east and headed down it. Another cyclist told us where it went so we rode across several bridges through the woods and swamp and across a high bridge that crosses highway 100. The trail then curves around to where we stopped at highway 100. The next day, we were heading down the coast and turned on the Royal Palms Parkway to see if we could find the trailhead and did so. There is a bike path that goes west along Rymfire in Rymfire Elementary School. Follow the path past the school to Ralph Carter Park - maybe half a mile - plenty of parking, restrooms and water.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Beautiful & Quiet

February, 2024 by brookeypav

Loved this trail as a distance skater! Did 42 miles on rollerskates. Started Keystone Heights in the morning. Quiet morning and saw the sunrise over the lakes. It was beautiful and just a quiet skate. Lots of little shrews & marsh rabbits spotted. Florahome is really cute. The surface is amazing…was perfect for skating. Averaged around 9 mph on rollerskates. Will be recommending this trail to any other skaters…just so serene :,)

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Lake Butler to Palatka

January, 2024 by kirsten.baker

Great trail! I would start in Keystone Heights and park at any business and skip the 8 mile connector from Mike Roess Goldhead state park! 21 is a busy road, loud, and not much to see but run down homes and businesses! The trail itself is Beautiful, with nice scenery, smooth surface and you can get as long of a ride as you want! Not crowded on a Saturday in December and we got in 30 miles!

Halifax River Trail

Dangerous

December, 2023 by vjtwx8kgw5

I rode this cycling twice once on the sidewalks and once on the street. I went from Holly Hill into the Tomoka State Park to get some distance and back 20 miles total Tomoka is beautiful state park but not bike friendly by any means. People speeding all through the park posted at 30 or 35 miles per hour. You could write speeding tickets there ALL day long as well as down Beach Street/Riverside Drive. There’s no place in Ormond, Daytona, or especially in Holly Hill (very unsafe) that’s safe or has any suitable bike loops with any distance of bike friendly streets after crossing Granada the most horrendous 1970’s sidewalks & very narrow streets with no bike lanes Disappointed in these cities who haven’t improved the safety of bikers or runners. I have nothing positive to say other than driving into the beautiful park by car is suggested for your safety.

Spring to Spring Trail

A great 2 day ride

December, 2023 by barbscondo

Dec 13 & 14, 2023. Visiting from AZ in our RV/jeep/Ebikes. We did this trail last year and loved it. This time we parked at the Lake Monroe Boat Park both days. The 2.7 mile leg from the Park is amazing. It curves and winds through the trees until it hits the trail where you can go East to Green Springs or West to Blue Springs.
Day #1 we chose East-it is a total of about 7 miles from the Park to Green Springs. Saw a baby alligator floating in the Spring. Somehow we did not realize that this connects directly to the E Central Regional Trail-so we continued another 3 miles for a total round trip of 20. Lovely tree covered trail for this portion. But you could take it all the way to the Atlantic!
Day #2 We went West to Blue Springs-it is about 11 miles to Blue Springs State Park. Gorgeous and we saw about 100 Manatees! in the lagoon area. Last year there were none so it was quite a sight.

On that new section just opened west of keystone heights, about a quarter mile in on the north side of the road is a house with two unsecured yappy dogs who are prepared to battle all cyclists on the trail. Be prepared!

Black Creek Trail

Black Creek Trail Bridge

November, 2023 by sixyearsto

Rode the trail this morning hoping to get in a good ride unfortunately the Trail Bridge is still out. No signs stating when it may be repaired!

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

OK trail

November, 2023 by barbscondo

Rode on Saturday Veterans Day. The parade in Palatka was great. We parked at Riverfront Park. Rode across street to the Quality Inn parking lot and right there you can catch the trail over the river. Rest of trail easy to follow. It’s 3.5 miles to the start of the tree canopy portion. Trees end at 6.7. Then a straight hot ride along Hwy 207 to Hastings for a total of 11 miles. It was 84 today so feeling the heat and humidity. I was expecting a longer section of tree canopy. I’m glad we did it but most likely would not be in my list of repeats.

Black Creek Trail

October 23 - Looks Like the Bridge is out

October, 2023 by pcturner0277

Traveling US 17 to the trailhead at Black Creek Park the bridge was coned off and caution taped with a sign saying trail close. About midway the bridge was collapsed in one short section. We went to the trailhead and walked south to the water and then north to the next intersection so Yoo-Hoo could stretch her legs. The trail wasnt that appealing as it paralleled US 17 with a lot of side street and commercial driveway crossings to contend with. The traffic noise was also a factor. Its probably more of a good neighborhood trail but not one to do for an enjoyable recreational ride.

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

Great Trail Got Longer

October, 2023 by gary.kirkland

You now can pedal from Keystone Heights to the town of Hampton, adding about six more miles of paved trail to enjoy.

Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail

Nice trail

October, 2023 by greg117

Rode the trail end to end. It is a nice trail, nothing really sticks out except spud farms and view going over St. John’s River. Mostly open to the sun when riding along SR 207, shaded when trail deviates away. Surface was pretty good, better heading west than east.
I was able to add a few more miles in Palatka than shown on map, finished with 48 miles. Will ride again.
