My husband and I rode the entire length and back of this trail today. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a ride. We had a heck of a ride to Baldwin with the strong headwinds the entire ride. The east and west trailheads were very basic. The east end had a bathroom. The west end had a port a pot. Just in from the west end about 3 miles you will find the Baldwin Train Depot, we stopped and rested a bit there. There was a bathroom at the nature preserve a little further along. Close to the midway point was another trailend. The ride was nice, but not much to look at. We did see some gopher tortoises, I spotted a. Deer, but that was about it.
We had such a wonderful hike here and were able to take our dog and it was so beautiful.
This trail is gorgeous! Lots of shade, a steady cool breeze, and so many bunny rabbits! We timed our ride to watch the sunset from the bridge on the way back. It was stunning!
What a wonderful ride from Baldwin to mile marker 5 and back. With my bad knee, I have to keep it under 20 miles, and this was a lovely mostly shady ride.
Did the 14.5 miles on my ebike taking many photos along the way, Restrooms are available along the way, Definitely a must do.
My husband and I road a section of this trail today. We entered at the Cora C. Harrison Preserve Trailhead and rode toward St. Augustine. We turned back around at the point where you need to cross a 4 lane divided highway with no signal. I felt too nervous about crossing. It was a nice trail for the most part. Some shaded areas, and some in full sun along side the main roads. I do appreciate that the trailheads have clean bathroom facilities, and picnic areas. The Cora C. Harrison Trailhead had a decent sized parking lot as well. The path is fairly level, with views of crops growing, and some cabbage was being harvested today. We did see a family of wild turkey as well. We will ride this trail again!
Well maintained trail, only a few roots pushing up under the asphalt in a couple of places. Beautiful scenery. I saw an otter scurry across the trail on one ride. Watch out for the squirrels!
I ride this trail often for exercise, its pretty smooth, there is one very bumpy section just northeast of Spuds for ~ 100 yards for those with low pressure tires it shouldnt be a problem. Overall a well maintained pleasant ride.
I started at the Twin Lakes Trailhead. There are facilities there at this trailhead. I did not understand why there isn’t any benches or areas where you could take a small break. I traveled east to the end, there was the park at Farhome? And a small area had a couple picnic tables closer to the end. This was a 20 mile trek, and 20 miles back. Enjoyed it!
Me and a friend started from the Imerson Rd trailhead and rode West. Parking lot w capacity of over 50 cars was almost full. But as we rode 2 miles onto the trail traffic disappeared. It’s paved, well maintained, very slight inclines and of course straight. We got stuck at the rr crossing just west of the 301 underpass so after 10 minutes we turned around . We were very satisfied with a 24 mile ride; stopping for lunch at the picnic area around mm 10. Great putting!
I ride this trail at least three times a week. Trail is becoming a little bumpy due to tree roots. I start at the trail head on 207 just south of St. Augustine. I ride to Hastings, about 10 miles. I then leave the trail and take the country roads out to the river. I see maybe 3 cars a day on those roads. I end up with a round trip of 27 miles. Check out Google maps to find the roads that lead to Federal Point from where the trail crosses Main Street in Hastings. The trail crosses 207 twice. Bvery careful, cars don’t even slow down when you are waiting to cross.
The east trailhead is an unmarked, unpaved sandlot just past the airport with no facilities. It looks like a sketchy place to park if you aren't familiar with the area. Trail mile markers begin at 6.0 miles here.
There are several unmarked and facility-less parking areas before you get to Florahome, and there are no services of any kind until mile 18.5 at Florahome, where there is a pit toilet, water fountain, picnic tables, and convenience store. There are no services until Twin Lakes Community park in Keystone Heights, about mile marker 27. The trail passes right by Walgreens in Keystone Hts, mile marker 30.
The trial is awesome: straight, relatively flat, and shaded most of the way from Palatka to Keystone Heights, which is about 24 miles. it parallels Hwy 100 but is separated but a buffer strip of trees.
