Trail Description
About this trail
There's approximately 10 miles if you follow all the trails available. Conditions vary depending on which portion of the trail you're on. What you're actually riding on is the fill left from when they originally dug the lakes in the park, so conditions go from rocky in some areas to hard packed sand in the forested areas. For the majority though I'd say the trails are nicely packed sand. About the only warning I can give is that unless you enjoy swimming your bike through gigantic puddles, avoid the park after a good rainstorm. The lakes have a tendancy of overflowing into the trails when it storms.

Review: Great place. Very easy access. Good user fee. My only problem was that some of the interior trails and a few of the exterior were not well marked. Although that may be adequate for riders familiar with the park it is a bit dangerous. A couple of times we found ourselves with no where to go but on advanced trails where a green or blue abruptly ended. This could just be us as it was our first time there, but it seemed odd. These should not end at a black as turning around is a no no. They should loop back. Overall nice facility. One of the best in my area. Clean. Friendly bikers.

Review: Went for the first time last week and it was pretty awesome! Lots of speed and cool bridges. The only trail that gave me issues was gun range, that trail was tough! I also thought it was a little too rough. Too many roots and rocks. Lastly, I wanted to do the jump section there but couldn't find it! it's either hidden from non-locals or they shut it down.There was only one decent jump in the whole park.

Review: Volunteer operated trail. Great job by the way! The intermediate and expert trails consist of roots, rocks, climbs descents, and for me the highlight was that long twisty bridge. You will be challenged, and you will have fun. Hats off to all volunteers, I will surely return! Eric M

Review: As everyone says, great trail system for SoFla. The trails are incredibly well maintained and within a park that can keep all kinds of people entertained (road biking, grilling, dog parks, gun range, etc).

However, if you live in North Florida and are deciding whether to drive into North GA or down to Markham, I recommend heading to the mountains, as these trails aren't too different from Santos or Alafia. Still, they are super awesome, but not very different from what Santos or Alafia have to offer, in terms of technicality and wooden features. Don't take this as a negative review, just not worth driving 5 hours south from N FL, when you could drive 5 hours north.

Review: Incredible trail system. Very well signed, easy to follow. Trail ratings (novice through double black diamond) are a true representation of trail difficulty/risk. Great mix of swooping, bermed singletrack, fast whooshing pine needle passages, and awesomely constructed bridges, ramps, and gnarly descents. Great trail!!!
