Trail Description
About this trail
Lots of ups and downs for the coast, mostly hardpack with a little sand. Some logs, bridges, jumps, and a lot of switchbacks are here. Some good steep climbs and descents. I'm probably low-intermediate. I find myself getting off over some of the rockier and rougher spots. My old ('89) Rockhopper would be the death of me otherwise. I keep riding in the hopes that a)I'll build my skills, and b) I'll get something lighter, with shocks.

I've heard of hoards of wild hogs on this trail, but haven't been there at a good time to see them. Ditto for deer. I've seen a ton of armadillos. I am a bit wary when the trail goes down to swamp level. I'm still new to Florida, and I'd hate to fly over my handlebars and meet a big 'ol snake or gator face to face, so I'm a little cautious at the bottom of the trail.

A: graham trail head is the north entrance, you'll go around a cattle gate to enter. you'll know you're in the right place when you see the series of gap jumps on the straightaway that leads to the trail

Review: Great trail! Love the mini climbes. Plenty of jumps. Some bridges and drops. Not for beginners. It's one of those trails you can't just do one loop. I had to do another. Who knew palm coast would have 2 of the best trails in Florida.

Review: One of the very best trails of florida, however not for the beginner. I would rate it right behind Alafia, above Santos. Plenty of opportunity to get air, plenty of technical climbs and super fun flowy sections. Worth the drive from anywhere in Florida. The loop is about 7 miles so make sure you have enough juice if you are going for your 2nd or 3rd or 8th lap. Or you can pair it up with Mala Compra for a real fun day of riding.

Review: The fun starts immediately at the "Enter Here" gate and doesn't end until the "Exit Here" gate. Santos and Alafia will outshine this trail just by the sheer amount of miles they have to offer. That said, they sure don't pack any more punch per mile. This is not a beginner trail; very challenging without being discouraging. Lots of drops, short sweeping downhills and steep climbs. A good mixture of technical features...........natural and man made. Had a blast and will return. My nominee for "Best MTB Trail Below Sea Level".
Bathroom facilities can be found less than a half a mile away at the Lehigh Trail (paved) TH.

Similar Trail: Mixture of the Vortex & Ern N Burn (Santos).

Review: Definitely not for the beginner. Most advanced trail I've ridden in Florida. The climbs and drops are steep and plentiful. Beautiful trail, well put together. Fitness and skill are a must.

Review: A top trail for Florida. Not a beginner trail. This trail is for riders who want a challenge. It is 6.4 miles long. There are gap jumps, 20' tabletop, rock gardens, bridges, and sand traps.

Review: This is sadly the dirt trail I have ever been on about a year ago with my cycle cross bike and it was very hard. Since then I have gotten in to the apart because of this trail. It my favorite trail next to santos. It's got some nice short downhill and some harder features that are always a fun way to test yourself. Another good trail to checkout while your there is Mala Compra on A1A.
