This trail is part of a nationwide, federally initiated Rails to Trails program designed to turn abandoned railroad lines into linear parks. The Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail is a 100-foot-wide Right-of-Way (ROW) currently extending approximately 14.5 miles from Imeson Road in Jacksonville to the town of Baldwin. A 12-foot- wide paved trail currently exists for hikers, bikers and rollerbladers to enjoy, with an equestrian trail paralleling the paved trail. The trail is contiguous with the Camp Milton Historic Preserve, which serves as a mid-point trailhead. There are approx. 8.5 miles of spur trails onto the Jacksonville Rail Trail Buffer Properties that are designated for unpaved day hiking and equestrian use. You'll find a parking lot dedicated to the Rail Trail.
