Bethel Bike Trails are a network of trails (Pine Lizard, South Pine Lizard, Badlands, Couch Trail,
Turtle Back Trail, Briar Patch, and South Bethel) which used to be Motorcycle trails. The trails
are in the Desoto National Forest. They are primarily single track with the occasional fire and
jeep trail. The trails are flat with only slight changes in elevation. The trails range from tight
turns in the trees to scenic rides along the creeks. Be prepared for a variety of soils ranging
from sand to hard packed dirt. I haven't ridden the trails enough to say what is the best route.
The Gulf Coast Bycicle Club has done a great job of fixing (especially since Hurricane Katrina)
and maintaining the trails. If you go to their website, you can get a description of each trail
individually and upcoming events. Being in the south, bring lots of water when you ride because
it will get very hot. It is an enjoyable ride, but also the only ride on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
