Mountain Biking Caloosahatchee Regional Park

****   Add a review
#53 of 282 mountain bike trails in Florida
#2559 in the world

The Caloosahatchee Regional Park mountain bike trail is strictly single-track and provides adventure and challenges for beginners and novice mountain bikers alike. The trail is composed of fast, flat, open areas that are intermixed with areas that cut through the natural canopy of Florida, providing a very scenic and tight ride feeling.

There are plenty of switchbacks, rock/root infested areas, mud pits, sugar sand ascents/descents and topographic relief. The trail has several optional areas that a mountain biker can ride or bypass. A feature that makes this trail awesome is the entrance and exit flips the first of each month, allowing for two unique adventures in one area.

The Caloosahatchee Regional Park mountain bike trail is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Restrooms (permanent and port-o-lets), bicycle washing stations, hot water, camp grounds and detailed trail maps are provided. A nominal fee of $3.00 per vehicle per day is mandatory.

The trail is maintained on a monthly basis by the Florida Mud Cutters www.mudcutters.org. We look forward to riding with you.

    This is a great trail, the best in the Fort Myers area. It's not very technically difficult but you can get some speed and flow through it for a lot of fun!

    Beginner to slight intermediate trails but a lot of fun for everyone. I'm teaching my 8 year old how to mountain bike there at the moment and she's loving it. At the time of this post the trails are in excellent shape and clean except for a few plastic bottles we ran in to. People this is the only trail for us for miles. Please pick up your trash.

    Awesome trail! Fast, flowy, technical sections a little bit of everything to ride. The work that has been done over the past several months has made it even better!

    The single track is in great shape. It's got lots of man made things to ride over roots, ruts & rocks.There were a handful of others riding on a week day morning.I augered in coming off 1 of the mogels. There was a rider at the bottom who was off the bike and i couldn't maneuver fast enough (new Guy) but not a hair outta place.

    Great beginning trails for my 8 year old son. His first experience with a mountain bike and he loved every minute of it. Don't be fooled though, there ARE some intermediate and advanced trails. Great location for all.

    Good trail for southwest Florida. Plenty of up and down single track with small technical loops make for a fun ride. More novice than intermediate but definitely a fun trail!

    Great Park, great maintenance and very friendly helpful writers, there are some significant elevation changes and yes I know it's Florida, sunburn Valley is the only area without significant shade and it's a great warm-up when the singletrack is running counterclockwise

    The trail direction changes each month and provides significant change in scenery and the feel of the track, it's not uncommon to see horses which share the trail and significant wildlife populations that include deer, and smaller forms in the varmint form

    Green, blue, and black runs abound and provide more than enough distance for a great day of riding, which is a good thing for Southwest Florida because it's the only real mountain bike trail available south of Alafi or west of Markham Park

    Definitely worth the trip

    Good length, mileage wise, sections of super fast and flowy trails. Decent little climbing/descent sections.
    Not too technical.
    Avoid when wet. This trail doesn't drain. It becomes very muddy. Not the enjoyable type of mud. Becomes near impossible to make it to the top of the climbs.

    About an hour drive N of Naples, FL with an acceptable review from fellow MTBers, rode it first time and the flow is pretty nice and fast which caters to beginners and intermediate riders. It's about 11 miles of riding and about half the trail is shaded. The tail end of the trail has some advance up hill that should be manageable on your 2nd attempt so you can adjust your gears effectively, for newbies there's always the bypass. Definitely coming back

    Was visiting the area and decided to try the trail. The first day it was closed due to a race. So we decided to come back the next day. I'm glad we did. It was a fast track that flowed smoothly into each loop. I will definitely come back.

    My wife and I rode this trail system and had a blast. She is a beginner, and I am an intermediate rider. The trails flow well and it is impossible to get lost. We met some friendly locals in the parking lot that gave us the lay of the land. I will be back next time we are down from Ohio.

    I can't give it a 5 star just because I am pretty new to this. Markham is good, but this was more fun. The trails are well laid out. The directions are easy to understand. All trails were well marked. Well taken care of. No question of which direction you are going or if we took a wrong turn. Very pleased with today's adventure ride. Mudcutters do a great job taking care of the trails ! Thanks for your hard work.

    Great fun trail. A little of everything: sandy flat trail, roller coasters, rocks and roots, boardwalks, skinny between the trees, steep short climbs, etc. Great for beginners to early advanced. Good afternoon ride.

    I am from Ky and have ridden this system a few times while in town visiting family. This is a very nice, well maintained system with about 10 miles of hardpack/sandy singletrack with easy to intermediate difficulty. The flow is good and you can really crank in sections, no significant hills but there are a few small steep areas. The far east section is my favorite and love all the drops and dips. They have recently added some techy wooden ladder bridges that are cool. This trail is located just a few miles outside of Ft Myers and well worth the short drive out. Parking is $1.00 per/hour. Check the website for status updates as the park is diligent about closing the trails post rain.

    BIG THANKS to the Mudcutters for building and maintaining this system.

    Awesome trails!! Great job to everyone that keeps the trails in such great shape!! I really like the variety & elevation changes of the terrain to ride from fast & flowy to rock gardens & wooden structures to black diamond sections! What more could you ask for!
