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.

This is a paved over former railbed and provides some of the easiest and safest cycling around. There are a few intersections with car traffic, but it is mostly car free. It actually starts downtown, but you don't want to go through that part -- it's a high crime area. Start near Baldwin.

The Rail Trail is a great place to ride without worrying about traffic while you ride. The trail is 14 miles one way so it is perfect for anyone training for longer rides. My BIL does the BRAG (bike ride across GA) and trains at the trail to help build endurance. The trail goes through some beautiful wooded areas that... More
