Mountain Biking Grayton Beach Recreational Park

****   Add a review
#127 of 283 mountain bike trails in Florida
#3,941 in the world

Beginning is duo track, winding through the odd but cool looking forest. Very flat but bumpy b/c the Yuca plant roots are exposed. Very curvy in some parts. Eventually dumps you out on access road for about 1/8 mile, walk the bike, too sandy. Singletrack then starts, go right or left off of the road. Very narrow, slightly sandy. Places that are too sandy, carpet has been laid down, about 2 feet across. The vegetation provides for a low pine tree canopy, but, the best parts it closes in around you and over you, making it very, very tight and slow, but challenging to keep your balance. Some places become so thick and low, long board walks snake through the large patches and 3 feet over the ground. Very enclosed. It's actually quite scenic, feels other worldly. Very leisurely. No climbs, no downs. It's a nice ride for a vacation @ the great beaches. It's worth it just for the odd vegetation and to get away from everybody. There will probably be nobody else back there, these were just constructed in spring '02. Leads to the better known East Lake trail that has a parking lot.

Getting there
Florida State Rd. 395 to 30-A. Head towards Seaside (right @ intersection of 395 and 30-A). Pass through the Seaside village, minding the many tourists on bike and foot. Go about 1.25 miles past Seaside and you'll see a sign for Grayton Beach State Park and Recreational Site on the right and the entrance is on your left. It's best to go in there and park, only place close to do so. The trail entrance is about 300 ft. past the park gate on the right hand side, opposite side of the park. It's very easy to miss, no parking on the side of the road. The only marker is a small bulletin board back in the trees. Ask the park official @ the gate for a trail map.

    Ok area to ride when in the area for the beaches and you need to just get out and hit some dirt (sand).

    This trail system is a hoot, despite the flatness. I have done 3 and 4 hour rides, and gotten lost as a goose, connecting the various combinations of singletrack, paved bike paths, road, and jeep trails. One feels VERY alone at times. High rating is due to proximity to nice beaches.
