St Johns to Sea - Bicycle Greenway - Titusville to St Augustine

People that may want or need to pull off of Rt 17, Rt 207, Osteen Mayport Rd or US 1 between Titusville and St Augustine to park temporarily or access fishing and hunting lands adjacent to these highways should begin to follow a program called St Johns to Sea Loop Greenway. This will be a multi use greenway path for bicycles and other non motorized methods of travel.

Here's a link to more info (map) -

Only posting this due to the River of Grass Greenway (ROGG) debacle down south in our region.

ROGG would have negatively impacted traditional roadside parking sooner or later and many other things so we had to get rid of it.

St Johns to Sea bicycle greenway may be well underway but it is never too late to be aware of what outdoorsmen are usually NOT aware of that can hurt them and seriously address it..

    That's gonna be/is an awesome trail. Can't wait to access some new fishing areas by bike. I currently use the existing loop at Palm Coast. And many other people do as well.

    This trail is a win win for all.

    Possibly win-win IF it doesn't have a goal of reducing roadside access by vehiclular travelers in favor of non motorized as the River of Grass Greenway did - without doubt.

    It took 8-10 years for the truth to be exposed on ROGG which inevitably led to the de-throning of the Collier County's MPO bicycle pathway advisory committee.

    Nothing wrong with cyclists as long as the freebies they get (we won't get into that) don't cause others to Lose their traditional means of access via roadside parking.

    Looking forward to Ocala National Forest To Mantanzas Greenway,a component of Florida Conservation Corridor,compliment to Ocala National Forest to Osceola National Forest Corridor.

    Thank you Conservation Trust For Florida,Florida Wildlife Federation,my governernment and so many associated land owners,interests.

    As a hunter and user of the lands,it's great to bicycle the places, rub elbows with fellow cyclists,even if non-hunters.

    ** No "Debacle" **
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    Just informing folks so they don't get blind sided down the road - these are very complicated projects that don't search too hard for comments from folks (Joe Lunch Bucket Types who aren't well connected) that may be negatively impacted by these type projects.

    Any project may be good for a few but usually somebody gets left out or loses what they had.

    Gladesman....there are no Federal intrusion and denial of public access issues along these routes....the situation along the ROGG is totally different from these proposals....There are no environmental groups I know of attempting to use these routes as a way to prevent public access to public lands and hunting, but, as you say, it is a good idea to be vigilant as these radicals can come out of the woodwork at any time when they see a chance to stop hunting...
