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: 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

Review: loved this trail ! Was staying in Daytona and decided to bring my bike to check out Graham Swamp, glad I did. Definitely intermediate with plenty of "Dangerous Drops" and lots of quick climbs. Plenty of places to get air, even though I was sucking air due to the rocky, hilly terrain. Anybody who claims there are no mountains in Florida didn't figure that you can make mountains out of molehills, or in Graham Swamp's case, multiple hills ! Beautiful scenery, relatively quick, fun 7 miles....just make sure to park in the Graham Swamp parking lot and not the Lehigh Trails one like I mistakenly did. Doh ! Props to the designer and caretakers. Great trail.

Review: Crazy, awesome trail in FL. No wondering why it's one of the best. Considered myself advanced enough to tackle it, but was sorely mistaken. This trail climbs like crazy, has fun fast drops, and plenty of jumps to get some air time. You'll tackle sugar sand, rocks, and roots on your way up, and then again on your way down. It's been said a hundred times in these reviews, but let me reiterate--NOT FOR BEGINNERS! It's seven miles long, so if you don't have the intensity to do it, save it in your wish list and train your intervals! Also, this goes without saying, wear a helmet. You'll go down at least once and you'll be thankful you have it!

Review: Fantastic trail. It was quite sandy during my visit. My inexperience lead me to crashing on a downslope from the soft sand. Very fun trail to ride. I had to walk a few steep climbs because it is difficult. A lot of variety to see and experience. I came across two wild hogs. Not sure who was more scared, me or the hog. He took off much faster than me.

Review: Great trail. Lot's of sand, ups and downs, rock obstacles and drop offs. If you're in the area, this one is worth riding! First time there, so I took it slow and easy. Many short, steep climbs, but nothing more than 20 yds or so. They will sneak up on you around a blind turn and if you don't have momentum, it'll be hard to complete the climb (I walked a couple...). Some really steep drops which usually go up the other side of a shallow valley. Several obstacles have an easier route to avoid the more technical stuff. And did I mention the sand? Perfect trail for fat tire or regualar or plus 29, plus 650B.

Riders with good balance (Trials) or those seeking challenging drops and air time, ride here!

I'll go again next time in the area!
