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.

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!!

Review: Youtube Ride Here: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=lrAIesZtNNo A great trail for intermediate or advance riders! I would not recommend for a first time MTB adventure. It takes a good amount of endurance and skill. See you there!

Review: A nice long track. Lots of steep technical climbs and steep drops. Not a beginner trail. More than likely you will see or hear wildlife.

Review: Update from my last review regarding Hurricane Irma: The trail crew was working on the trail yesterday (all day). Currently, the majority of the trail is open thanks to these hardworking and dedicated individuals. I clocked 6.1 miles of open trail on my GPS today. The crew made a couple modifications around a couple flooded sections, but the trail is clearly marked. You can expect a few muddy sections in the lower half of the trail followed by sand, with immediate uphill climbs; pretty much the norm. Also, next weekend November 18 is Trail Fest; it's going to be a great time for those participating, again thanks to the trail crew.

Review: I stopped by yesterday to ride Graham Swamp, and I admit it's been a while since I rode this trail. Luckily before riding I met an individual who helped clean up the trail after Hurricane Irma. He told me that only two of the seven mile trail is open... Since I really wanted a longer ride I to went to Mala Compra, which is just a couple miles a way...

Review: Great trail, at least what I saw of it. I'm a beginner and ignored all the reviews that said "not for beginners". Turns out, everyone was right. What I did see of the trail was a ton of fun, but man was it hard. I'm surprised this is a blue trail.

Review: The best mountain biking Florida has to offer. Plenty of places to catch air; it has rock gardens, technical descents, steep/technical climbs, drops, and it all ends with a 20' table top jump. Not for beginners or those without a bit of stamina. It is only 7 miles but they are very tiring 7 miles. Best ridden after a lot of rain.

Review: Used to be 8 miles, but something changed in the trail recently so now its 6.9 miles. Takes me about a 45 minutes to complete. If you are a cycling monster the best time is 35 minutes or so. This trail will beat the life out of you. Of all the trails in this area this one is the most physically challenging. Make sure your climbing gear works properly. You are gonna need it. Be ready for some rooty drops. ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Next nearest trail of this caliber is Grapefruit or Santos. But if that's too far there's mala Compra, and Chuck lennon which have some equally challenging parts to it.......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... There Is confusion as to where the trail head is. The nice parking lot with restrooms is the wrong place. The real trailhead is about a mile north. Its is an orange dirt parking lot with a wood ranch style fence around it. ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... https://goo.gl/maps/tcvLVvFM7Qr ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Single tracks webmaster please allow text formating so our reviews can be a little easier to read. Dropping line of periods is no fun. Thanks
