Mountain Biking Bum Trails

*   Add a review
#228 of 285 mountain bike trails in Florida
#8,792 in the world

Singletrack trails through an oak/palmetto hammock. The area has alot of small hills for Melbourne. There is also a gully type depression that runs along the tracks just inside the woods. I'm guessing it's where they got fill to build up the tracks back in the day. There are some drops into this gully and some bridges and other fun things to play on along with the trails. Overall a fun ride, but not too long, it's on a limited amount of land.

    i checked out thses trails over the weekend, only because i live a few blocks away. trails is very overgrown, and trashed out, met some of the bums who were fairly nice and surprised to even see me out there. i would say the most challenging part was riding on the gravel next to the tracks.

    This trail is not a trail system anymore, it is trails for the homeless & bums (with or without bikes). Technically, there is no one allowed riding there bikes or to be out there, as this is municipal property and TRESPASSING is NOT allowed. The homeless & bums are overlooked by the City of Melbourne & MPD. The so called DJ's that are there are crap. Used to be a BMX system years back.

    Rode it today briefly. Not really impressed. Did see a group of homeless sitting in a circle drinking beers, hence the name of the trail.
