About This Trail
added by Guest on December 31, 2002
 
Beginning is duo track, winding through the odd but cool looking forest. Very flat but bumpy b/c the Yuca plant roots are exposed. Very curvy in some parts. Eventually dumps you out on access road for about 1/8 mile, walk the bike, too sandy. Singletrack then starts, go right or left off of the road. Very narrow, slightly sandy. Places that are too sandy, carpet has been laid down, about 2 feet across. The vegetation provides for a low pine tree canopy, but, the best parts it closes in around you and over you, making it very, very tight and slow, but challenging to keep your balance. Some places become so thick and low, long board walks snake through the large patches and 3 feet over the ground. Very enclosed. It's actually quite scenic, feels other worldly. Very leisurely. No climbs, no downs. It's a nice ride for a vacation @ the great beaches. It's worth it just for the odd vegetation and to get away from everybody. There will probably be nobody else back there, these were just constructed in spring '02. Leads to the better known East Lake trail that has a parking lot.

Review: My wife & I chose this trail over Timberlake. This trail is a nice Beginner Trail as advertised. We are from North Ga. and I am an advanced rider. The wife is the beginner. Coming from the North Ga. mountains we are used to hard pack and I am used to elevation climbes out the waazoo. The trail was great, however, wet in a few spots and the riding in sand was a bit different.

Similar Trail: I haven't riden much here in FL but if your ever in the metro Atlanta area and in Cherokee County check out the trails at Blankets Creek. Mosquito Flats is the beginner trail at this location.

Review: Rode this trail today. Not bad. Some sand spots, but overall, not too long. You can get in a good workout. Heat is bad in Summer. A lot of the trail is uncovered. So it feels like a desert out there in the middle of the day. I was the only one on the trail. Definately something worth seeing. It's quiet back in there.

Review: This trail system is a hoot, despite the flatness. I have done 3 and 4 hour rides, and gotten lost as a goose, connecting the various combinations of singletrack, paved bike paths, road, and jeep trails. One feels VERY alone at times. High rating is due to proximity to nice beaches.
