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 :,)

Great Trail

January, 2024 by annkellylopez

Rode from Imeson Rd trailhead and went through Camp Milton park (where bathrooms are located on left, ~ 5.7 miles in). Great way to spend a chilly Thursday in January. Highly recommend!

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!

Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail

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

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.

Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

Wonderful trail

November, 2023 by barbscondo

We parked at the first trailhead closest to I-295. That is designated Mile #1. The first 2 miles does not have a lot of shade but after that it is a beautiful tree canopy! We are from AZ so love the trees! About 6? Miles in is Camp Milton. The best part of the ride! Traillink shows the turn off and a little circle of tail within the park. Keep going!! What it doesn’t show are all the beautiful concrete winding paths in the Park. They go on and on through the trees. And then we stumbled on the most wonderful mile or two of boardwalk built above the forest floor floor and winding in the trees

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.

Timucuan Trail

Nine miles now

October, 2023 by jn4wznbwb8

The bike pedestrian bridges and trail between Little and Big Talbot Islands have been completed. It’s now possible to ride 9 miles continuously from Fort George Inlet to the North end of Big Talbot Island. As of October 2023, the pedestrian bridge from Talbot to Amelia is still closed and in need of repair.

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.
