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: 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.

Review: Very fun place! My family has been here a couple of times thus far and it is perfect for my wife and I to meander through and technical enough to keep our boys happy. Very nicely maintained with the ability to traverse the terrain at any skill level.

Review: The blue trail has a good long section that is flat, twisty and rooty which makes for a great warm-up before taking the optional Cloud Nine black diamond section, which has technical sections enough to make your heart race (at least mine). Beginners can skip Cloud Nine and stay on the blue trail and you get a nice cool down back to the trail head. Very shaded which is great for those hot days when you want to avoid the sun. When you're done riding, go across the street and get some killer BBQ and beer at Captain's BBQ! Go to Facebook and like the trail page: Mala Compra Mtn Bike Trail

Review: This is one sweet trail system that can really test your skill level. From their flat easy trail that does have some technical rooty sections to the advanced trail with steep ups and downs, you'll find these trails awesome.
