Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail-Trail

First time and did it all.

November, 2018 by keala_tl

We love hiking in the mountains and sadly that is not really something we can do here in FL. So my husband, 2-year-old and I went out for a fun family day. The trail was great! Friendly people, well maintained and overall a great day. We stopped and walked around the Civil War camp and went off to have lunch in Baldwin. I just wish they had signed it a bit better, we went all the way to the end and had to turn around because we missed the town.

Cypress Creek Greenway

Connecting Greenways?

November, 2018 by drjanajaffe

We took the trail at Markham Park (Sawgrass) yesterday to Hiatus and was hoping t pick up Plantation to Cypress Greenway. However, we need to turn around as the sun was beginning to set and didn’t want to ride in the dark. We live right near Fern Forest (Cypress Greenway). We are hoping to take Cypress Greenway to Plantation/Hiatus Greenway and then to New River Greenway. Hoping that works for a great ride that we plan to do often. I’ll revise and let you know.

Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway (Santos Trailhead to CR 200)

Very Safe Trail

November, 2018 by punkypenny

I really like this trail. It is shady most of the way. It crosses a few small roads in the beginning. The rest of the way it tunnels under roads and there is bridge that goes over I-75. There are mirrors at turns so you can see if anyone is coming. Clearly marked signs and crosswalk where other trails crossover. The entire trail is 15.66 miles and ends at 200 for now. There are plans to extend it to Dunnellon. Theres a Walmart a mile and a half from the end. I the scenery is beautiful and there were a couple of people out riding horses. Overall I felt very safe on this trail.

Trans-Florida Central Railroad Trail

New Trail with Potential

October, 2018 by bobwise32952_tl

Trans-Florida Central Railroad Trail: So read the lettering on a new pedestrian overpass spanning I-95. I'd never heard of it, and couldn't find it on the internet, so I decided to drive down and check it out.

I started at the Fellsmere Trailhead Preserve, just west of I-95 on highway 512. A young mother was watching her child on the playground as I unloaded my folding bike. Inside the shelter I found restrooms and a wall map of the Regional Greenway, which includes the rail trail (see pictures).

Pedaling around the trailhead, I saw no way to the trail until I came to a hard packed sand roadway leading north from the entry road. A road grader operator confirmed that this was the way to the overpass.

At the trail, packed sand gave way to a hard gravel surface with pinewoods on either side. I turned left, to find the end of the trail at a locked gate. Here the old railbed led straight west, through the woods of the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park towards Fellsmere.

Turning around, I pedaled a half mile eastward to the paved section, twelve feet wide, beginning at the approach to the overpass. Out to the left were several structures of the FIT Challenge Course: horizontal rope nets, wooden walls to scale- challenges I might have tried half a century ago.

Descending the overpass, the trail turned a few degrees south of east and ran board-straight between stands of tall pine to the vanishing point. Not much shade; a summer afternoon sun would shine straight down the trail, and this morning there were only a few patches of broken shade.

It was busy on this Saturday morning- two couples walking abreast, pushing a tandem stroller; two young girls walking a huge, furry poodle-ish dog; other couples and individuals pedaling or strolling. The mile and a half of pavement led to North County Regional Park and its large, well attended swimming pool. I could hear shouts and splashes as I passed. A trailhead shelter here was closed.

From the pavement's end, a nicely wooded mile of gravel trail meandered through thick woods, over several boardwalks across the wetter places and through an oak hammock with some magnificent trees. I passed a young lady jogger, then a fast moving male cyclist, who confirmed that the trail ran on into Sebastian.

It popped out of the woods at a bridge over an arm of the St. Sebastian River, where it joined a wide sidewalk on highway 512, continuing the Regional Greenway northeast into town. I didn't have time to ride it, but looked it over by car- a true greenway. More than half its length was set back from the roadway and screened by tall, thick rows of cedar. Some of these sections adjoined neighborhood streets. A number of walkers and cyclists were using it.

Four miles of greenway led from the end of the rail trail to the downtown Sebastian waterfront, at US 1, which boasted a mile of wide bike lanes. A block east, Indian River Drive followed the shore of the Indian River Lagoon, with a half dozen seafood restaurants overlooking the water.

Starting at US 1, a rider could go about six and a half miles to the east end of the existing rail trail. Plans call for the rail trail to extend about three miles further west, into downtown Fellsmere.

Fellsmere has two very authentic Mexican restaurants, one including a bakery, plus a local pizza parlor. Southern comfort food is on offer at the century-old Fellsmere Estates Building, in a small historic district along Broadway St. The town has the oldest operating library in the county, and was the first town in the south where a woman voted in a municipal election.

Despite its imposing name, the Trans-Florida Central Railroad was never more than a feeder for the main rail line along the east coast. It reached about fifteen miles inland, to the St. Johns marshes and the former town of Broadmoor, planned for development but abandoned after a hurricane flooded the area in 1916.

The rails brought lumber and building materials inland to Fellsmere, carrying out whatever products were harvested from the marshy land over the decades- sugar, citrus, potatoes, muck for fertilizer, pulpwood. Early in the last century, passenger service ran four times a day between Fellsmere and Sebastian.

This short rail line buoyed the region's economy for half a century. Its legacy is a pleasant greenway, well used by locals and worth a visit for anyone seeking a leisurely ride.

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

ride here often

October, 2018 by igh3

Gainesville-Hawthorne State Park Trail

October 19, 2018

October, 2018 by bonniegc65

We are fairly new riders. Rode 12 miles before heading back. Saw a deer and thought it was a nice trail.

Pine Island Bike Path

Bike Path? Not really

September, 2018 by lermfl20

This is a poor excuse for not providing a decent bike lane on the two lane road that was just re-paved and could easily have included a bike lane on each side. The "bike path" is overgrown and hazardous if you are on a road bike. I used the road and had vehicles blaring horns to move but nowhere to go.

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

Hidden Gem

September, 2018 by virgil2

The Eastern part of this trail is paradise lost - some really spectacular views - it slowly becomes ugly the farther west you travel. Has some hills (for Florida lol) - it's nice to go in here to the shade after the Courtney Campbell. The only thing lacking is a water fountain and restroom. I'll do this trail over and over and enjoy the views everytime!

Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Roller Blades

September, 2018 by schilker

Great for marathon roller blading. I would like to see the State of Florida add mile markers.

Black Creek Trail

Not much of a trail

September, 2018 by madonnavillarreal

Very disappointed on this trail.
Nice little parking lot and a shady beginning of the trail. That lasted for about 5 minutes. Then it was just a paved trail along Hwy 17.
Some of it was separated by trees but mostly right next to a busy road and lots of intersections you have to cross. I would not recommend this trail.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Nice Bike Ride

September, 2018 by kirby.lastinger

Rode from Green Pond trailhead and except for a few rain showers it was a great ride.
