If you time it right, this trail can be a peaceful, serene place to walk, bike. If not, be ready for loud families, groups, cyclists and skaters as they bring their noise with them from the city. Some cyclist can sneak up on you, so keep your eyes/ ears open and stay to the right. Overall, when I go, I... More

The Baldwin Trail offers to my family a wonderful athletic experience of either biking, or walking or running. From woods to beautiful small home town secluded homes to an old train station.

The Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail is fairly wide of smooth asphalt with trees on both sides. It is approximately 14.5 miles long and has several restroom facilities and benches along the trail. I walk the trail with my wife, haven't done the whole trail yet, but will when I get a chance. Great place to bike, run or walk - get... More

This is one of the most popular sections of the local rail-to-trail course in the Jacksonville area. Good for bikers, hiking, running or just a pleasant stroll if you go early in the morning or when it's not too crowded. Mostly shaded and with pleasant natural views, there are a few spots with definite North Jax flavor, but for the... More

This trail is very near my home. My husband and I spend many hours walking along the trail. When we are up to it, we bicycle along the trail and view the beautiful Florida landscape. Everyone is very friendly usually.

The Baldwin Trail is fairly wide (8 feet or so) of smooth asphalt with trees on both sides. It is a fairly long trail, (30 miles) so you should be reasonably fit and have a multi-speed bicycle, preferably a road bike as opposed to a trail bke with thicker tires. It is a safe trail with just a few road... More

The trail itself is great. I've never made it to the end. There are beautiful areas off the trail to stop off and sit and soak in a little nature. Bathroom stops are nice. Parking is sadly inadequate. It's a long way for me to drive to have to leave due to no parking.

I have ridden the Baldwin trail quite a few times. The best time of year is in the fall when the leaves are changing. It's absolutely beautiful. It's a great place for leisurely to medium paced ride. The speed limit is 20mph. The trail crosses a handful of roads, so be prepared to stop for cars at the crossings. It's... More

It was a great trail! It is nice to have a bike trail. My only reason it did not receive all 5 stars is that it was super busy when I went and had to move off the trail multiple times because there was too many people on the trail.

This place is really special. Long stretches of pristine pavement broken up by farms and wildlife. After you get 5 miles out the traffic thins out and you have the trail virtually to yourself. The tree canopy is spectacular just after sunrise with the really special places being the small bridge near Camp Milton and the curve at the railroad... More
