This is a fun 30 mile roundtrip path. There are a few intersections where you have to watch for cars, but otherwise it's paved, flat, and safe. Part of the Rails to Trails paths.

Ran here early in the morning (6:30) while staying downtown on a business trip and was the only person on the trail until nearly the end. It may be a better biking trail than a running trail but for both it is very nice. Until ~3mi you are running under power lines but 3 onwards are gorgeous. Would recommend to... More

Florida is blessed with many good bike trails, and the Jacksonville-Baldwin Trail is one of the best. Well paved, away from motor traffic, the trail passes through some lovely wooded areas. Wildflowers are abundant in Spring, Summer, and Fall.

My daughter and I have biked, hiked (and she even roller bladed) on this trail. It is paved and has a lot of shade...perfect trail for the whole family...and your dogs, too!

Lovely trail with history, shade, and exercise. Depending on when you go-you may need bug spray and be sure to carry drinking water. Beautiful nature trail with plenty of green and animals. Lots of families take advantage of this free trail. It is a blast.

This is an awesome bike trail. It is very long but you can turn around at any time. There is a variety of landscape and scenery. The are a few roads to cross but they are not big. Large portions are covered in trees so even in the heat of the day there is cover.

This is also a great place for us older walkers, especially if you park at Ft. Milton. It's in the middle portion of the trail, and you can either head toward Baldwin or Imeson, learn about the Civil War encampment history, or enjoy the solitude. ALWAYS bring your own garbage bag and water, and remember to Take Out What You... More

The trail is clean, mostly flat, spacious, and scenic. Went the full 29 mile round trip from trail head on Imeson to Baldwin and back on my bike with two others. There is plenty of space to do a few sprint intervals and ride leisurely if you so chose. I do recommend you bring your flat kit, though. Some parts... More

The path is paved and shaded for the majority of the ride, providing beautiful views and a break from the Florida sun. It's rarely crowded and there are plenty of places to stop off to the side and enjoy a packed lunch. A favorite activity in Jacksonville, be sure to bring plenty of water!

As an older bicycle rider I'm a big fan of Rails to Trails and have been on most of them around Florida. My favorite by far is the stretch of the Jacksonville-Baldwin trail that starts at its Camp Milton mid-point and goes on to Baldwin. Camp Milton is itself is a nice park with a boardwalk and benches on which... More
