Top 5 Amelia Island Bike Trails by Nick Abruscato

  1. Egans Creek Greenway.

Leaving from the bike shop, less than a half mile away is the entrance to the trail. Peaceful and scenic and only 2 miles in length, everyone has a great time. Described by the Fernandina website as “grass-covered roads serve as a network of trails that are suitable for walking and bicycling, and its environment exhibits a variety of natural wildlife and vegetation.  Local wildlife, such as alligators, snakes, bobcats, and many birds, may be enjoyed from a distance. Benches and interpretive displays are located throughout the Greenway, and restrooms are available at the Nature Pavilion, located at the Greenway entrance behind the Atlantic Recreation Center on Atlantic Avenue

  1. Fort Clinch State Park.

Just under 2.5 miles from the shop. Riders enter after the Egans Trail adventure. The roads through the park are 3.3 miles to the fort. A bike rack for locking the bike and a visitor center allows for a bit of relax time while visiting the historic Fort. There are access points to several miles of beach with hard packed sand that can be ridden with large tire bicycles during low tides.

  1. 1st Avenue to Amelia Island Trail.

Follow 1st Avenue to Bill Melton Rd and then out to South Fletcher down to the Harris Teeter. The asphalt trail starts and winds along through the forest to the Big Talbot and Little Talbot State Parks. The route is over 20 miles round trip so a bit of planning and preparedness is required. Our 7 speed bicycles are well suited for this ride.

  1. Old Town Fernandina.

After Fort Clinch, pick up 14th Street to get out to Dee Dee Bartels boat ramp. An 11-mile ride from the bike shop and back wandering through the scenic roads of Old Town Fernandina. You will find rolling hills along the route.

  1. Downtown Fernandina.

A 4.5-mile ride to town from the shop and you can park at many locations with bicycle racks. Enjoy lunch while looking out over the intercostal and Fernandina Harbor Marina.
