Some reviews here are a little outdated regarding facilities. There are now cameras installed at the Imeson parking lot and a very helpful fellow explained that there haven't been any more vehicle breakins that he knew of. We had absolutely no problems. My camera battery died, or we would have had more pictures of the facilities. There are facilities and... More

The trails are wide and well maintained. There's plenty to see and u feel like your not in the middle of a city anymore. People are generally friendly as you pass by and there are places to stop, rest and use restrooms.

The trail is approx 14.5 miles long, a 29 mile round trip. We rode the trail on a weekend trip to Jax, end-to-end. We started at Baldwin, where there is a park with free parking, water, and restroom facilities. It is a rail trail, so it is well graded and paved. There are nice tree canopied sections and it is...

The Baldwin bike trail is a close in trail that offers people in Jacksonville a change to get in a good bike ride/walk and enjoy the nature of the area. Although marred by a few old, dilapidated buildings and shacks along the way, the trail gives people a chance to get away and also get in some intense exercise (if... More

You can believe everything you read. This place is great! The ride is smooth, straight and the trail is covered with a canopy of trees. We started at Camp Milton and went to Baldwin, can't wait to go back and do the rest of the trail. Very family friendly, felt safe.

This is an excellent bike ride. About 26 miles round trip but you can ride as much or little as you wish. See the woods of north Florida without all the traffic.

My brother and I were in JAX for the weekend and decided to go biking. My brother found this trail online and we decided to check it out. It's a nice trail through wooded farmland close to JAX. There were many people using this trail which accommodates walkers, runners, bicyclists, and equestrians. While the scenery could have been better the... More

Needed a good place to get in an early morning ride while in town on business. It was great--albeit flat & straight...well, this is Florida. Be aware, you may be solicited by the local security...A ROOSTER. He was not bothersome, but he did apparently expect some fee-d! Saw wild turkey and deer in the 7.5-8 mile portion I did starting...

14 miles of smooth pavement each way. There is a nearly total tree canopy which keeps you comfortable even in the middle of a warm day. Only a couple of street crossings, and the traffic was minimal. There is a Civil War site near the halfway point with restroom facilities. It's a good educational break. There is plenty of parking... More

Not Scenic. Paved all the way. Was previously a RR track. I enjoyed it. I started my ride in Baldwin,FL. If you cannot find the start, just ask any local.
