Mountain Biking Bull Creek Conservation Area

***   Add a review
#181 of 283 mountain bike trails in Florida
#5,909 in the world

Terrain: Wetlands that border the St. Johns River. Open to hunting. Call first (407-846-5311 or 407-984-4940) for information on hunting status.

The 23,500 acres of Bull Creek are under the management of the St. Johns River Water Management District. There is an 8.5 mile loop road, an old railroad tram, and trails including a dike trail through this area. It would be best to go in here only after a prolonged dry spell according to my informants.

    I rode this trail 23 July 2016:

    NOTE: The current map showing the trailhead near powers road off of crabgrass road is incorrect. I found this trailhead at the Triple N WMA off of Hwy 192 at Lat/Long 28.131123, -81.020546.

    As described, it is a very flat, open loop set in sawgrass and isolated scrub pine trees. The road is a mix of gravel and sand, but not difficult to ride even when dry.

    The comments regarding not riding this trail during wet periods should be heeded. It had been relatively dry for two weeks prior to my ride, but there were 4 areas where I had to ride through water crossing the trail. One stretch of about 30 yards was over 2 feet deep. Luckily, geo-textile fabric has been laid to maintain the trail/river bed.

    I saw multiple white-tailed deer, a few gopher tortises, lots of free-range cattle, and a large eagle.

    Very quiet. I was alone the entire time on the trail. The main trail is a loop road that appears to be about 9 plus miles long. Almost completely exposed to the sun with only small stretches through tree cover. Bring plenty of water.

    The trailhead map noted that the area is open to "seasonal hunting", so you may want to check that our ahead of time. I was stupid enough not to, but didn't have a problem.

    This trail is primarily an unimproved road the entire length of the loop. It is described as being approximately 9 miles in length but I measured to be just slightly less than 13 miles. I rode the trail on July 9, 2010 and the condition of the trail was mostly dry for the exception of a few wet sandy spots and a one large flooded section. The flooded section was approximately 30-40 yards in length and was easily traversed on the MB with the deepest part of the water being approximately 1 foot deep. The trail is quite a bit away from the highway and is very quiet. Some wildlife was spotted and I was able to complete the entire loop in just under 2 hours (Second time MB’ing). I definitely got a good work out and plan on visiting it again. The track is definitely a beginner track and it does not have any obstacles, just calm peaceful open road.
