blueThe Beresford/Blue Spring segment of the St. Johns River to Sea is now open for nearly 12 miles extending from north of Beresford Park to the south end of Blue Spring State Park. On Sunday lots of people of all ages on all types of conveyances were out enjoying the trail and celebrating the open of the new segment.

A Trail is as good as the things it connects! At the moment this trail connects the North terminus, Beresford Park, Blue Spring Park, and the South Terminus... good but not good enough. Those two dead end terminuses keep challenging us... One day it will connect the north parts of Saint Johns River to Sea Loop (St Augustine, Palatka, Deleon Springs) to the south - Debary SunRail Station and the Spring to Spring Trail and on to Titusville and via the East Coast Greenway all the way from Maine to Key West and via the Coast to Coast Connector to St Pete and the Gulf Coast.
