Mountain Biking Gran Canyon

****   Add a review
#175 of 282 mountain bike trails in Florida
#10530 in the world

Open quarries left behind from former limestone mines now comprise 10 miles of Florida's most well-known mountain bike trails. These trails are by no means for the first timer. Outrageous downhills (for Florida) and lung-burning climbs make this a very popular destination. Admission is $3.00 per day.

Rider questions

Q: is this trail open?
A: Unfortunately no. The person who owned the property previously had an 18 hole disc golf course on it and allowed MTB. Then he sold the property in 2005ish to a man who was going to develop it. Long story short, the bubble burst, the market tanked and 7 years later the man died and left it to his wife. Since then she has allowed 2 disc golf tournaments there. I played in both of them. I just got into MTB, but I can say that DG there was awesome and I can see where MTB would be amazing. 40 acres of intense elevation changes in an old quarry. There has been loose talk about opening it back up with MTB and DG combined. Who knows?

    The climbs are very difficult and some parts impossible. There is no set trail with quite a few parts grown over or washed out. Yes, the downhill sections are technical and fast and very intense for Florida, but they are very short and definately not worth the enduring climb after three or four times.
    If your in the area, you should try it out for only three dollars, but I would stongly suggest against making a trip out of it.
