Unsure why Gold Head trails are listed as Mountain Biking Trails. The nature trails inside the park are solely for hiking. I've hiked them many times; when I saw this posting I called to park to verify before I drove out there and was informed by the ranger that bikes are not allowed on the trails.Thank |
We camped at the park and rode all the trails here, the florida trail and fire roads are quite sandy but the loblolly trail and parts of the ravine trail were really fun. Don't miss the trail that actually drops down INTO the actual ravine loop, intended for hiking but great fun on a mountain bike, the only caveat is pedaling back up, if you're in shape you'll love it, if not you'll have to walk your bike some. Overall the entire park is a bit sandy but the scenery and serenity was beautiful, a few lakes reside off the trails as well with clear aqua blue waters. Don't miss the loblolly loop, not as sandy and quite a bit of down/up hill.Thank |
Trail is mainly intended for hikers but i found it to be a very good workout. For someone in the local area it is worth ridding it is a little sandy but not to bad. Some nice elevation changes and great sceneryThank |
These trails are intended for hiking but its fun for mountainbiking. Sandy but fun.
