Trail Description
About this trail
Alligator alley is a nice short trail that takes you alongside Bivens Arm and offers some nice views of the lake. The singletrack is fairly difficult in some spots due to roots but overall it is rideable by most. The trail has some slight elevation changes here and there. Its fun to ride but it’s very short. It’s usually used to connect you with other trails that are spread out through Gainesville.

Review: Short trail that runs along the north end of Bivens Arm. The trail can be accessed at the end of Shealy Drive behind the UF Vet College. Some roots and elevation changes makes it a fun trail, and worth hitting when tying to other local trails. This trails gets muddy with the rain.

Review: I enjoyed this short little trail. Plenty of things moving around when I rode through it around 5:30 in the afternoon. I changed from factory pedals to flats and it was an easy ride.

Review: Looked like no one had rode this trail in awhile. This trail has some potential with some elevation change and interesting roots however it definitely needs some work done as there was evidence of some destroyed features and the bridge is looking pretty sorry. Also this is a quite short trail so not really worth going to unless your next to it and note if it has been raining recently it tends to get muddy.

Review: Nice, but quick little trail. The bridge at the end is starting to fall a part though. You can usually hear a gator splash back into the water as you ride by the lake.

Review: One of my favorite parts of any southern Gainesville ride. Riding by the lake is quite nice, and the trail offers a nice array of hills, log overs, and, if my memory serves me, a teeter-totter. Definitely check it out along with Sweetwater Branch/Homeless hills.

Review: This trail is alot of fun. I wish it could be developed more because it could be awesome. Dont travel for this trail but if you live in Gainesville check it out. Mostly used as a connector for trails that run through Gainesville. If you ride it as an out and back you will not even get 2 miles...very short or it woud get more stars
