Trail Description
About this trail
Trails are fun, mostly flat, twisty and somewhat sandy. There may be 20 miles of trails if one is willing to explore into Deer Lake State Park. I'll say straight out that these trails aren't in my top ten list but they were a great save when I was into town for work and needed a nice ride. On the plus side you can ride and then jump in the gulf!

Review: A lot of double track and not much here. It was good for a new ride and needing some none road miles while on vacation. Anywhere natural surface is better than asphalt. Didn't ride a lot of the area. Was okay once just to explore somewhere new.

Review: I don't think there is a Point Washington State Forest trail per se, but there are 2 trails that I rode while on vacation in South Walton area that snake through the forest. The first is Longleaf Greenway trail which is an out and back that connects to Eastern Lake Trail, which is inside a state park and requires a $2.00 admission fee. Both trails feature similar terrain: flat, covered with pine needles, occasionally sandy and rooty. Of the two, Longleaf seemed a little twistier and funner, but I recall getting lost along the trail somewhere because of the numerous intersections with nature/hiking trails. Eastern Lake Trail was well marked and has 3 loops of varying lengths. Here's a really nice map to see where the trails are if you are vacationing in the area and want to get your ride on: http://www.waltonoutdoors.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/PointWashTrail.pdf

I also rode on a 29er hardtail and did have to walk some of the sandier parts, but definitely doable without a fat bike.

Review: Yeah, it's flat. It's also Florida.

Awesome fat bike trail. I found the trail to be well marked via seeming recent installation of colored metal arrows showing 3 loops. Trails are mostly flat with some neat bridges and splotches of forest along the way. You are able to either leave from the trail head or a primitive camp site accessible via sandy roads (4wd recommended). The camping is the real treasure, it would be very easy to bike pack into camp. Camp is located several miles in on the orange route. The ocean is accessible from camp via a 3/4 mile singletrack section separate from the 3 available loops. It dumps you right into town blocks from the beach. The trail dumps out onto OHV (off highway vehicle) trail every now and then and one could ride for many more miles if you dont mind riding the OHV trails (mostly sandy roads). If you are near Point Washington and need to get away from people this is a great place. Like I said, a great fatbike trail, not sure how much fun I would have had doing the whole loop on skinny tires.
