Deer, alligators, raccoon, etc...Lots of wildlife to see up close.
We did the second half of this trail through the boardwalk and to the Amelia Island bridge. Chose not to continue on pavement as it was busy Sunday road traffic. The bike trail was beautiful, interesting and over way too soon!
My hubby and I ride rail trails every weekend. This is my least favorite as there are too many crossroads. Too much traffic. For me, it was NOT at all relaxing.
However, I loved that we started at the ocean and could relax sitting and walking on the beach after our ride in both ends of our ride.
Nice paved path but very close to A1A. You cross the busy road a couple of times so be careful. Can be very busy on the weekends. If starting at the northernmost part you can go over the bridge and continue on the Timucuan Trail.
Enjoyed my bike ride very much, lots of side trails to veer off that head right to the beach.
A great way to tour the Island. I have biked and walked it. Many different types of scenery, marsh, wooded, ocean. Plenty to see and many places to stop and sit. Make sure to take time and enjoy, especially Driftwood Beach.
Two trails hopefully merged to one someday. I enjoyed the trail in White Oak, walking across some of the old trestles a better chance to see wildlife and the beauty of the marsh.
We ride this often. The actual trail is 19 miles. You do some dirt, road, bridges, go through woods, over creeks, through ancient oaks and in front of the beach. Very nice. Needs lots of repairs and cleaning after Hurricane Irma.
We road from the State Park on the southern end to Peters Point and back. We thought this trail might have some ocean views but it doesn't, except at the endpoints. Its a nice ride but it's literally right next to busy A1A highway. The trail crosses it 3 times and there is a lot of road noise from the big trucks on A1A. You will be safe on this path, but if you want a quiet ride, this is not the trail for you.
The northern starting point with free parking and facilities is Peters Point Park right on the ocean. Heading south the trail along Amelia Island Parkway is narrow concrete so the high speed bikers might find it confining but I loved the curves and the already blossoming spring flowers. You do have to be careful at the many drive ways. I loved the fact that they had sanded off the bumps where one payment had risen above its neighbor creating a bump. There is an alternative wider trail starting at the same point and running along the main highways also to the south. Youker
The scenery is by far one of our favorites, the ride takes you from the marsh, to historic buildings, blending to the beach and ocean views, along the way you will encounter shopping and resturants, golf courses, the water park and nature. Simply a relaxing ride with mostly wide paths to alow traffic in both directions. No matter the season you will fall in love with this treasure of the coast. From the fast paced rider to the laid back cruiser, Jekyll offers something for all. We take our 6 year old nephew with us on some rides and he loves it even on his smaller bike. The trails are a very nice ride for our cruisers and our friends ride road bikes and they also found it a pleasing ride. There has been alot of improvements over the last year to the riding paths. I don't see many being disappointed after their experience here. Come for the day, stay for the week, or discover your home away from home.
The Amelia Island State Park parking lot address is actually listed on map as 8148 1st Coast Highway, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034, USA. It is on your right side just after the bridge. I put in the 8162-8164 Florida A1A, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034, USA as coordinates but could not find the state park until I found the correct listed address. Amelia Island State Park cost two dollars for the day to park. The booth was closed so they had an honor system. You can also go through the first parking area to the second, if you want to get to the nice white sandy beach area to swim or fish. There wasn't much traffic or bikers being it was the middle of the week and day.
I walked from the park to the third rotary which was exactly 3 miles. The trail was a pleasant walk. The trail was curvy and hilly and pleasant to walk and even though it was next to 1st Coast Highway (A1A). The ride up the coast to the park and back home was beautiful and enjoyable.
