Unmatched coastal cycling opportunities await at Amelia Island State Park. Cyclists can park at this seaside destination, located at the south-end of this treasured barrier island. Protecting over 200 acres of maritime hammock, salt marsh and sandy beaches, this area is ideal for cruising through on your favorite bicycle. Begin your adventure with stunning views of the Nassau Sound, the prime fishing grounds in the region. Restrooms, refreshments and bike racks are available at the in-park concessionaire, On-the-Line Bait and Tackle, open Wednesday – Monday, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Once you’re ready to start rolling, head either north or south along the paved Timucuan Trail Pathway, part of the 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway that runs along the Atlantic Coast from the Florida Keys up to Maine. The Timucuan Trail in this area is a paved, mostly off-road pathway that runs north six miles to Peters Point Beach Park on Amelia Island, or south crossing the A1A bridge to Big Talbot Island State Park. The southern section brings you across the mouth of the Sound to a wooden boardwalk overlooking Spoonbill Pond, one of the premier birding spots in northeast Florida.
