Trail Description
About this trail
The Caloosahatchee Regional Park mountain bike trail is strictly single-track and provides adventure and challenges for beginners and novice mountain bikers alike. The trail is composed of fast, flat, open areas that are intermixed with areas that cut through the natural canopy of Florida, providing a very scenic and tight ride feeling.

There are plenty of switchbacks, rock/root infested areas, mud pits, sugar sand ascents/descents and topographic relief. The trail has several optional areas that a mountain biker can ride or bypass. A feature that makes this trail awesome is the entrance and exit flips the first of each month, allowing for two unique adventures in one area.

The Caloosahatchee Regional Park mountain bike trail is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Restrooms (permanent and port-o-lets), bicycle washing stations, hot water, camp grounds and detailed trail maps are provided. A nominal fee of $3.00 per vehicle per day is mandatory.

The trail is maintained on a monthly basis by the Florida Mud Cutters www.mudcutters.org. We look forward to riding with you.

Review: I can't give it a 5 star just because I am pretty new to this. Markham is good, but this was more fun. The trails are well laid out. The directions are easy to understand. All trails were well marked. Well taken care of. No question of which direction you are going or if we took a wrong turn. Very pleased with today's adventure ride. Mudcutters do a great job taking care of the trails ! Thanks for your hard work.

Review: Great fun trail. A little of everything: sandy flat trail, roller coasters, rocks and roots, boardwalks, skinny between the trees, steep short climbs, etc. Great for beginners to early advanced. Good afternoon ride.

Review: I am from Ky and have ridden this system a few times while in town visiting family. This is a very nice, well maintained system with about 10 miles of hardpack/sandy singletrack with easy to intermediate difficulty. The flow is good and you can really crank in sections, no significant hills but there are a few small steep areas. The far east section is my favorite and love all the drops and dips. They have recently added some techy wooden ladder bridges that are cool. This trail is located just a few miles outside of Ft Myers and well worth the short drive out. Parking is $1.00 per/hour. Check the website for status updates as the park is diligent about closing the trails post rain.

BIG THANKS to the Mudcutters for building and maintaining this system.

Review: I have done six trails now, and this is by far my favorite. A great mix of rock gardens, hills, intermediate challenges on the beginner loop, and expert challenges off the intermediate loop, as well as two expert trails that break away to the side.

Similar Trail: Dyer Park in Palm Beach County is very similar but only 3 miles. Good stop in if on the other coast though.

Review: Very well maintained hard pack trail. A nice variety of short intermediate stints and the Far East trail is a lot of fun. You can see how much care is given by the volunteers who maintain the trail. There are a couple nice spots with benches to stop and enjoy the peace and quiet of the park. Well done mudcutters!
