Rider Questions

Q: I was wondering if the easy loop would be manageable for an adult just starting out? -Verrybusy

A: Yes, the easy loops are good for beginners. There's a few tight spots and can get rather bumpy but nothing hard. Just follow the signs / map.

Review: Best trail system in Fl. Plenty of trails for all levels. The blues are probably blacks in most other Fl trail ratings. The blacks are serious and for experienced riders. Make sure to do a "test" ride first.

Review: As with skiing Green, Blue and Black. Rated fairly. They're awesome trails, all of them. It takes good cardio and skill to complete any blue. Completing North Creek and then roller coaster without stopping, one guy posted, you're in pretty good shape. It took many rides on each one just to be able to complete it based on difficulty. It was great practice for 2 years, twice a month for 6 months. So 2 years netted 12 to 20 runs. It was good training for headin to MOab, which Ive visited twice now. Short steep drops, turns, ups etc. You won't be able to ride even the Blues without a few recon runs. Unless your an avid dedicated rider. You won't be disappointed.

Similar Trail: All good riding.

Review: Hit this place up for the first time yesterday and was thoroughly impressed. I've mtb'd at Santos & Mtn. Dora and this place is much better. For starters, all the trails are centrally located around the parking lot, bike shop, playground, picnic tables, and bike wash. Favorite trails were Twisted Sister, North Creek, Roller Coaster, Serpent, and Spitfire (personal fav). There is an entrance fee of I believe $4 but it's well worth it. Trails are clearly marked and will definitely be coming back to this place as I live in Orlando.

Review: Great Fun, Something For Everyone! I Consider Myself Somewhat Of And Advanced Rider And I Found That No-Where On The Easy Trails To The Gnarliest Descents Was I Bored, Or Just Felt, Un-Challenged. I Give It Five Stars For Fun, For Diversity And For All Around Just Feel That The Trails Have. I Consider It Better That Santos, And Potentially Even Vortex! Now That's Hard To Compete With.

Review: What a great trail system. We live about 2.5 hours away, and I see us making frequent trips here to improve our skills. We rode River Loop, Rock Garden, Garden Ridge, and Roller Coaster. River Loop and Rock Garden were very easy, with just a few up hills. The trail features were easy but fun. Garden Ridge had a few step uphills when traveled clockwise, but was much easier counter-clockwise. Roller Coaster was awesome! What a great trail! We can't wait to head back!

Review: Stuck to the green trails as I was riding with a new biker. We had a great ride! Conditions were extremely dry so the Sand Pine trail was a real challenge.
