Good beginner trail. Has a few technical obstacles, several big hills to climb, and one big drop. If you're in the area, it's worth a trip.

    Rode the trail on a Trek Verve +3 in hopes the hybrid electric bike would handle it.
    The bike did fine. I kept it in low gear and max assist as I am 68 years old and out-of-shape. The trail is in need of some maintenance but wasn't too bad. I had to lift the bike over a log or two and lean it over and crawl under a fallen tree that was about four feet off the ground. I'll probably ride it again in the near future as I live in the area.

    I'm sure the trails here are much better maintained in the fall/winter months when they get more use, but in the summer months it's pretty overgrown. It's a fun trail though so I think it would be worth checking out again.

    First time riding here. Nice trail. Typical southern GA/FL Panhandle riding. No hills, some sand, lots of roots. Overall fun ride. Rode once around the BMX track at the finish. Worth bringing my bike again the next time I come down for work.

    Nice little trail, decided to give it a try while in town on work. My only complaint is I lost the trail at market 15 and then again shortly after that. I also picked the wrong day because they were doing a controlled burn and it was extremely hot.

    This trail has recently been upgraded. Road it today for the first time in about a year, it was a surprise to see how much better the trail is now. It is about 10 miles now of good single track.

    I think this is more of an easy trail than intermediate, but the sand and flat terrain make it tough. some long flat out areas for spped and some good wooded singletrack added in too. There is also a bmx track next to the entrance if you want to try your skill at it as well. Pretty well worth the trip to go out and ride. Also a zoo there and picnic arwas for the whole family to make a day of

    Local trail for me so what can I say. Very fast trail winding around the park. Not really technical, just fast as I said earlier. One nice climb out of the creek bottom, couple small climbs one with a drop off. Just a overall fun trail. You can camp, enjoy the wild animal park and enjoy the other offerings by the park. Also home to the "Fat Four" mountain bike race. Two years now and that has been fun.

    The trail has been extended to 7.8 miles by my computer. Im 41 and not in spectacual shape, i ride the loop in 40 min. at a modrate pace. Its fun with twisty sections and fast sections, one short decent and climb ( maybe 30-40 ft. ). There are some hard sandy sections making it slippery. And some root covered saections as well. The trail is well maintained and the biulders are friends of mine and they hope to have a lot more trail by this time (6/20/12) next year, as more of the park will be made avalible to biuld on.

    I biked chehaw to break up the monotony of the drive from tallahassee to atlanta, and I recommend doing so. It's a small leisurely trek. Nothing spectacular, but like I said, it's a nice stop. Maybe I missed something??
