Mountain Biking Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail

This is not an MTB trail but it is worth listing because it has over 16 miles of paved car free riding. You will pass through a beautiful forest where you will see wildlife and awesome scenery. This trail is mostly flat but there are a couple of areas where you will encounter a gradual elevation change. A local Gainesville favorite that will give you miles of great biking.
