Mountain Biking Esterbrook Trails

It's really cool, it has tons of little bridges built all over the place. Lots of little sharp turns and steep mounds and drops. Not a huge place but a fun hour long ride.

    Trail has not been maintained in a while it seems, the bridges are still there, some need repair. trash and homeless campsites scatered about, the locals seem friendly though. Its ridable just not a spot I would send someone unless they were looking to get boozy with the people camping behind Lowe's.

    Unless I went to the wrong spot, it looks like there are no tresspassing signs allowed in a place near lowes, or if people mean LITERALLY right behind lowes, I rode a path that went behind a hotel for like 20ft before it dead ended....Am I at the wrong place?

    This place has the potential to be good singletrack. Some of the bridges are down and the place is just to small for me. Lots of homeless people living around the trail also, they dont bother riders tho

    Had to take the opportunity to check out this trail since it's only a few miles from my place.

    Had trouble finding the entrance at first and then realized it is directly behind the bus stop.

    Great small trail like everyone has said except that the huge bridge that is amazing looking in the pictures is down. Could of been from old age or someone might have had a hand at it.

    Other than that bummer, saw a couple of tents slightly off trail and may have ran over an abandoned bed that was covered in leaves. Good time, though.

    Went to Genni Springs this Labor day weekend and was lookin for a quick ride on the way home,so we came here instead of San Felasco. The trail was ridable but could use some TLC. For a small area the potential is huge, good work done by the locals on the bridges and skinnies. The skinney/bridge on the downed tree was very cool. The structures were solid but kinda old. This is a good trail but could be awesome. If I wasn't 3 Hrs away I'd ride it often. Oh yeah the bums are still there but didn't bother us.

    Short Trail, but super fun, lost of stuff built up, including homeless camp. Skinny bridges set up over water. Really fun, Must see for Gainesville.

    Short, fun, tight, plenty of wooden structures built up by local bikers. Some of the bridges are a real blast to ride up and down. Homeless people are a seasonal part of the trail it appears (tents, grills, the whole 9 yards) but they usually won't bother you too much.

    Located off NW 23rd Ave & 13th St heading west behind the bus stop/Lowes. Fun singletrack with quick ups and downs, good use of the creek that runs through and sinkholes in the area. Some homeless live near the trail but their dog was not aggro.

    This trail is really fun. It gets a little technical around some of the bridge areas, but other than that. it's a nice ride.
