Trail Description
About this trail
A fantastic long trail with heavy climbs and switchbacks. Not marked very well in some areas, however, following the path is very easy. This trail will take you through different environments: along the swamp, flat woods, rocky hills, and thick forest. Trail can be sandy if it hasn't rained in awhile. Although there is quiet a few flat and smooth areas, it is mostly a challenge with steep climbs and fast drops that'll be a surprise around the corner. Expect wild life to be roaming around, as this is a conservation area. There is no doubt that this trail will leave you beat after 7 miles. Mala Compra is right down the road if you're ready for another ride.

There are restrooms, water, and a bike station about a quarter mile south of the parking lot at the Lehigh Trailhead. You can ride the sidewalk here.

Q: Can I bring my dog -Guest

A: I would not recommend it. I always find hikers on the trail a bit of a safety hazard. Nearly every trail in the state has them. I hate the double standard of not being allowed to ride on their hiking only trails, and yet they seem to be all over ours. I have gotten hurt a few times due to hikers being in the bottom of a drop zone. Hard to avoid them without getting hurt when you have so much speed.

Q: I can't find a single track. I'm new in town I'm here at the conservatory it says Graham swamp. But it's not a single it's a double that's flat please tell me where to go -Guest

A: Correct, enter the trail on the south side of parking. System runs clockwise. You'll come back to parking via north side. There are some climbs....short, nasty, rooty ones.... enjoy!

Review: Fellow pizza & beer seniors: this trail will kick your ass. Less than half is typical Florida, ducking low branches, hopping roots stuff. Mostly it's relentless steep hills. After a mile I was gasping, walking my bike up half the hill because I couldn't power through, even in granny gear. I loved the skinnies and robust decents...at least those mild enough for my XC bike which exceeded it's 4" travel numerous times. Have fun but you will be winded.

Review: Awesome trail, you can ride it every week and never get bored. Perfect if you have solid technical skills or just good judgement to avoid a nasty wreck. Most of the trail has great sprint climbs followed by some short, steep, drops. By far the best trail around, no comparison to the nearby Mala Compra. Ride this if you like a challenge.

Review: What a great trail. Just rode it for the second time. Steep drops, tight turns and plenty of hills. Great for any intermediate rider and above. It's definitely not for kids or the faint at heart. Rode great all day until the last mammoth jump. Crashed hard on the right side into my bros bike. Two bent wheels(his) and one cracked helmet(mine:). Best day riding yet.

Review: If you're looking for a ride that tests your stamina and riding ability. This is the place to go. Trails are kept in great condition and there are obstacles/jumps at every turn. There is opt- out turns for beginners so don't shy away. In all one of the best trails in Florida

Review: very technical trail, in my opinion. It will leave you gasping for oxygen, as there is much climbing. Of course climbing is followed by descending which is what makes this trail enjoyable, we went back and did many descents a few times before moving on. It is a long trail but very worth the drive down (from Jax) and the effort needed to ride. Kudos to the crew who keep this trail in shape, great job!!
