Review: For flat and no elevation ground the park is pretty good actually. As opposed to most bikers who don't enjoy too many roots and rocks...c'mon it's MTB, or in this case off road biking). It's part of it! You take away all that and you take the fun out of MTB. It's supposed to be a challenge, that's the cool part of this sport. The more technical it is (rocks, roots, more roots, more roots, turns) perfects your skills as a biker. Your skills as bikers don't come from riding flat surfaces and few turns, but places such as these and besides good work out for your forearms because of the bumpy ride lol. I do agree that the trails can get confusing since they don't mark them as well.

Review: Great trails, rode late January 2015 and the trails were perfect! Lots of rocky/rooty trails, hard on a hardtail.

Review: Awesome Park! The trails are very rocky/rooty, but great scenery and variety of trails. The gilligan's island trails are the best!

Review: Great single track trail, lots of roots, loose rocks.
Slippery when wet, what more can you ask.
For dry trail without obstacles, go else where

Review: great trails.....needs some tlc....after all the rain we"ve been having, dry for the most part. the few muddy patches in the usual spots.....and for Gilligan's Island trail> should be close 3/4 of the way in 2 foot high water. just skip it all together (until dry autumn season)

Review: Love this place. You'd never know it was there, tucked away in such a metropolitan area. Trails are very well maintained. Lots of rocks and roots, but still lots of flowy trails. Be sure to check out giligan's island. Best trail there.

Review: Great trails for being Florida and all. nice & long, distance wise. very rocky and full of roots, but worth it on so many levels. the best trail has got to be 'Gilligan's Island". take a breather before you even go in. it's only 2 miles, if not under...but IT WILL KICK your a$$.

Review: First time at Oleta. Fast, decent, well kept trails. Rental facility at Oleta doesn't have clips for mtn bike shoes, big let down. Couldn't use my mtn bike shoes. Would have had a lot more fun if they'd had the pedal clips.

Review: Good long trail with a lot of options as far as difficulty. Very technical, not flowy. Lots of roots, will definitely test ur hams on some sections. Plenty of switchbacks, man-made features sprinkled throughout. Careful with Gilligans Island u might get lost in there! Fun, challenging, skill-building trail. On-site bike shop with rentals and a bike wash.
