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 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!

Review: I am fairly new to mountain biking, but i had so much fun here! There are lots of fast, easy sections and plenty of technical obsticles. I did ride the "Far East" trail and I probably shouln't have, especially by myself. I agree with the signs, beginners probably should stay out. Some of the descents made me nervous and i couldn't make a lot of the climbs. In total I rode about 9.3 miles according to my iPhone GPS app, but there were a couple small extentions I didn't ride. I live about an hour away in Naples, and I am planning on coming back every week from now on. Good fun and good exercise!

Review: "CRP" is broken up into three sections; all connected to one another, and all single track. (No fire trails, other than escape routes) As soon as you take this trail for granted, it will come up and bite you if you are pushing hard enough. In general, the ~13 mile course is a fun mixture of fast flats in the sun, a small share of climbs\descents, tight narrow turns through the thick trees and over the many roots; some rocks. GREEN trail: - Southern front section is 75% fast open field hard pack, with a sprinkling of rollers, berms and rocks. 25% is fun root inhabited, narrow through the trees, 9 or so quick\steep climbs\descents, and a small narrow bridge. - Northern front section is 80% along a wooded 8-foot ridge, adjacent to a stream; subtle climbs, descents, and turns ... and narrow through the trees with more roots and some small stumps. ... The other 20% is same as Southern front section - fast and flat. BLUE trail: Hard pack, fast, flat, lengthy, plenty of switch backs. Mostly through tight trees, plenty of roots, but also plenty of open field trails\S-turns. Scattering of firmly planted rocks. 4 small narrow bridges 6" off ground. Very few logs. BLACK trail (aka "Far East"): Take all of the above, cram the best parts together, add more difficult climbs\descents, along with some off cambers. Good SWFL course for all-comers.

Review: This was a great park. The mudcutters do an excellent job maintaining it. The trails were mostly hardpack. Most of the trails all riders can handle. The far east trail was rated advanced and had some nice challenges.

Review: Great trail system that I just rode for the first time. Has a nice flow to it with obstacles placed in perfect places to keep the trail from getting boring. Was unable to take the advanced section due to current knee problems. It's a shame it's so far from home or I'd be here more often.

Review: Good trail for a beginner. I have done the beginner trail twice to get the hang of the layout. Going to try the tougher trails this weekend if no rain! Almost nailed a turtle on the trail the first time; second time there was a feral hog in the parking lot and saw three deer on the trail. Parking is now $1 an hour or $5 for the day.

Review: The additional East section almost takes it out of beginner, but not quite. Mostly flat, uninspiring, but if you're in the area, run it fast and get a quick workout.

Review: If you haven't rode this trail recently it's worth another look. New section added to "Far East" section making the trail a bit more difficult and fun to ride for more experienced riders. There are no more drops, climbs and ridges. It's no Mark-ham Park or Alfia, but certainly a great local ride. Go crazy.

Review: A great singletrack for the Southwest Florida area. I was pleasantly surprised at the difficulty of the optional trails; very tight and narrow. Riders were friendly and helpful. I look forward to going back soon before it gets too hot and humid but, I understand that the trail gets flooded in the late summer months due to heavy rains.

Similar Trail: Markham Park in Sunrise, FL or any trail in the Ocala / Gainesville area.

Review: There is a brand new trail in the back section of the park. It is for expert riders only. It is technically challenging. There are a couple of drops which you would need plenty of speed. The trail does not have many climbs and drops although there there are a couple. I like that you can really get some speed going. About 1 hour to get through to the end. there you find an area that has some jumps and other cool stuff. the park is great for begining.* Review edited 5/17/2007

Review: I was here today, Sunday 4th. And I saw the trail in very good condition and excellent to ride. They did a great job cleaning the park. I recommend for any biker to come to this trail and check it out.

Review: By the way, the Florida Mud Cutters spent many hours installing a wooden bridge (for better or for worse) over a section of the trail that becomes muddy from July to September each year.

Review: I rode this singletrack again on April 22, 2004. At the time there was little to no precipitation, therefore, no mud. Many of the low lying areas that are under canopied areas are filling up with sugar sand, likewise on many of the ascents/descents. In several places the trail is filling in with vegetation. A lot of leaf litter has fallen, therefore, the speed of the course suffers a bit. The Mudcutters have a scheduled maintenance day in mid-May, and that should help shore up the trails. Will be riding this singletrack again today, May 7, 2004.
