Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is part of Point Washington State Forrest. If you do the full loop (Orange), it will be 10+ miles. But there are two shorter intersections that allow you to do 3.5 miles (Yellow) or 5.5 miles (Red). The trail switches back and forth from double track logging road to singletrack. There is no water at this place. Maps are available at the Info Kiosk at the trail head. This trail has LOTS of sand. There are some sections that are practically unrideable. You'd have to dismount and walk your bike through it. For the most part, the intersections are well marked, but several are not completely clear - like they'll have a color in the middle of a 3-way T, but not tell you exactly which one to take. Only after going a little ways down do you see another indicator. In mountian biking, that's little more than a nuisance, but if I were cave diving, taking the wrong route because the paths are not marked well can get you killed. It's a good ride and long enough to get in some exercise, but be warned about the sand!!!

Review: I rode this trail while on vacation on my 29" hard tail mountain bike. Yes, it's a bit sandy in some spots, and it does get a bit confusing in some unmarked intersections, but the solitude is so gratifying after battling the pedestrian/beach cruiser bike traffic on 30A. It's by no means a challenge, but a nice trail to get some cardio in while avoiding the crowds on vacation.

Review: This trail is flat and sandy, especially near the trailhead which probably gets more hiking traffic. Not a whole lot to offer, but it is 10 miles... suggest going across the street.

Review: If your looking for 9 miles of pedalling through sand pits with short sections of decent single track to make it 11 miles then this is your place. If you want a nice smooth ride through the Florida woods head west to the longleaf pine Greenway trail.

Review: A flat grinder. Any speed will come from your pedals. A mixture of singletrack & FS road. Roots & sugar sand the only technical obstacles. Three distinct loops to vary your mileage. The orange (longest) trail has very little traffic from mile 5 to 10. Something to do when you tire of the beach crowd.

Review: Rode this today, and ended up taking the 3.5 mile route instead of the 10 mile full circuit; 1 reason SAND. As the main descriptor for this trail said, small parts of it are un-rideable and longer parts you feel like you got your brakes on (again sand). A few LARGE and long water puddles especially on the logging road (last rain 5 days ago. Some might enjoy this trail but I won't give it another shot, other trails in the area are better (just my 2 cents).
