Once a part of the CSX railway line, the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail will be a thoroughfare for hikers, bikers, and equestrians when complete. This unique park provides a 14.5-mile greenway between Imeson Road and County Road 121, just past the town of Baldwin.

I did not ride this but my son did while training for a olympic triathlon. He said it was great for that. Not great scenery but safe and not much traffic to worry about.
