Trail Description
About this trail
Mostly intermediate trail, with a few red sections towards the middle of the trail. The trail has great canopy throughout and all hardpack, even in the middle of Florida's brutal summer. The trail contains some pretty good short technical, challenging climbs followed by abrupt, shifty descents. You'll find a few little bridges over water and some really sweet ridge line sections with a couple areas leaving no margin for error. Lots of roots towards the end of the trail, almost too much, a bit redundant after a while. The trail is, for the most part, well marked, but a few areas are bit confusing and you may need to stop and think for a second.

Review: Only the lack of mileage keeps this from being one of Florida's premier trails. Most of the trail is tight, twisting, root filled ride but the black/double black diamond sections are burly. Anyone less then an expert will find the natural & man made features very challenging. The Atlantic beach is only a .8 mile double track ride away and Captain's BBQ is just across from the TH on the intercoastal waterway only adds to attraction.

Review: I'm a pretty good biker and I brought my 12 year old daughter with me we stayed on the blue and it was pretty easy there was lots of fun roots and a few terrain parts that she did but is fun after we went on the black and it was pretty difficult but we just walked over some things but had a blast super fun PS we went during winter so don't know what the big situation is but heard its like any woods on Florida

Review: I really like this trail and the area. Captains BBQ always a must after a ride, if not for lunch at least for a tea and view of the inter-coastal. Only down side, there are a lot of roots.

Review: Coming from the mtns of western north carolina i didnt have much hope for this trail. boy was i wrong, it has some really nice fast sweeping sections and some other places that rival the technicality of the mtns. on section inparticular is set up with some nice drops and jumps noth too big but still good fun. my only coplaint is the roots and amount of sandy sections, usually right before a steep climb or decent its really sandy cant maintain any speed, and the roots at the top of the climbs/decents make you slow down and be careful. other than that it was great fun and ill deffibnately be riding there again.

Review: Great set of trails. Cloud 9 has some technical sections that you would not expect from such a small park.

Review: Very technical and tight. Not a fast trail with lots of rocks and roots. Very enjoyable trail. Wish it was longer but well worth the trip to ride it

Review: Tight and technical. Lots of roots and rocks. Very challenging ride for Florida. Would rate it 5 stars if it was longer but well worth a trip to ride it. Will be back to ride again

Review: Another fun FL trail system that's a bit different than nearby Graham Swamp. Less flow, more technical in the middle section, but still a good ride that offers much more shade than Graham Swamp.
