Trail Description
About this trail
The trail consists of approximately 7 miles of varied terrain including technical single track. Most of the trail winds through old phosphate mine land therefore the trail has a good mix of terrain. The most unique aspect of the carter park trail is the narrow single track through mine "spoil piles". Hours are approximately 8 to 8.

Review: I ride here as much as I can, great track to get a good work out and get some good mileage in. Worth checking out, good scenery and decent difficulty. When it's dry it's a pretty fast track, very enjoyable.

Review: 1st time here. New to Fl MTB. Had a great time here. Something for everyone. Narrow single track to really good technical. Riding along water and running into a snake or two will keep you on your toes. Gators are active here.

Review: I personally love this trail. It's classic Florida scenery with huge oaks covered in spanish moss and bright green water. The trails are tough, rooty fingers out into the water and offer some great views. Just don't look around too much or you'll end up in the swamp. The trails can be narrow and slope right into the water.

Review: I have not posted in about a year on this trail. This trail system has came a long way over the last year. It is fast with a lots of flow to it now. I really enjoy riding carter road. Thanks to the ridge riders mountain bike club!

Review: The trails are fun and challenging. It is a large loop that goes out with many trails that connect on the way. check out the fingers, big momma's house, the moe, and the beast if you are up for a challenge. The other trails are fun and less technical. The ground is mostly hardpack with a good amount of tree roots.

Similar Trail: similar to Alafia

Review: I just moved down here a few monthes ago from SE Indiana, this was my first experience with Florida mountain biking and I had a lot of fun on these trails. I've been three times, I haven't been on all the trails it gets a little confusing as there not marked very well, but still fun to ride. If your not from Florida and haven't been riding because you think it's flat and boring, these trails will surprise you and make you work harder than you expected. Ride them at least once you won't be disappointed, and the local riders I've met have been really nice about giving pointers about where to ride and one even rode with and showed me around for a little bit.

Review: The trails keep improving under the new RRMBA leadership. New berms have been built along with some bridges and plans are underway for more. Nice flowing trails with harder options to head into. Narrow trails in the Fingers make u work on the climbs and drops. Different kinds of terrain with most of the hard options are on singletrack right by the swamp. Trails are well maintained. One time through on all the hard options gets you 10 1/2 miles. With names like, Snake Ridge, the Beast, Big Momma(aptly named for the 8ft gator that sometimes suns on the trail) and the Moe you certainly get a great workout on different types of terrain. My favorite place to ride.

Review: Awesome trail. Rode with some buddies and had a blast. Got there early and there was a race scheduled for later so only got in a couple of hours. Great scenery and challenges for every level. I do agree with some of the other reviews in that you do hit some turns and or crossroads with no markings so you kind of have to guess which direction to travel for certain trail levels. An awesome place and hope to get back many times in the future. Worth the 2 hour drive!
