Mountain Biking Guana River State Park

***   Add a review
#250 of 281 mountain bike trails in Florida
#11863 in the world

About 10 miles of mostly beginner and some intermediate scenic trail. Completely flat. Beginners will be right at home on these trails. Intermediates will find trails to be easy, fun to ride in large groups, and good for introducing beginners. Experts: You're going to the beach anyway so you might as well get a short ride in! Not challenging at all.

Before you go
  • No Drinking water 
  • No E-bikes permitted 
  • No Fat biking allowed in winter 
  • No Fee required 
  • No Lift service 
  • No Night riding allowed 
  • No Pump track 
  • No Restrooms 
Getting there
From the South: Take I-95 North and exit East on SR 207. About 7 miles later you'll need to head north on US 1 and then north on SR A1A. From the North: Take I-10 to I-95 South. From I-95 South, exit on SR 202 and head South on A1A from Ponte Vedra. There are several signs for Guana River State Park, but you want the main entrance (not the beach area). Pay the entrance fee and park on the west side of dam. No, there's no shade.

    Very easy, it is a good trail for a beginner or someone just looking for a workout.

    I don't know why it has gotten poor reviews. It's listed as a beginner track and I thought it was an excellent one! Beautiful scenery, plenty of wildlife, clearly marked, convenient parking, and bathrooms. Be sure to bring $3 per vehicle and bug spray! It's a fun easy track you will enjoy.

    We were staying in St Augustine Beach and this was the closest trail system I could ride my bike to. It is a fun little ride, of course some sand, mostly open riding on double track.

    Ok, i havent been there in over a year so i dont know what its like now, but when i went, it was dreadful. The trails were unkept, so sandy, that my little brother and my mom, had to walk. My dad and i had a hard time but managed. There was a multipurpose trail, so there were bikers, hikers, and horses who were all destroying the trails. Then they had a controlled burn the day before, so we had to deal with smoke, debris, burning embers(which one guy had to walk his bike out because the tire popped from the ember) and ashes all dusted up in the air. Not for beginners.

    Rode today with my wife. Got some sandy spots but just makes for a good workout. We rode 10 miles. Not much challenge, but can get a fast pace ride in, and nice area.

    First time at this trail. Trails are wide with plenty of room. Had rained the night before so not too sandy, but can see where it could get loose.

    Very easy but also nice place to ride. There is alot to look at and loads of wildlife. The trails are well marked and very fast. The orange loop is still the most fun and only single track. Watch out for hikers!

    Went today with my Wife and we loved it the Orange trail is the best. It is real singletrackish. We saw 6 Baby Boars and 2 White Tail Deer running down the trail it was great. The breeze coming off the water made it awsome as well* Review edited 4/27/2010

    Pretty good for what it is. Easy trails for a speed workout and yes, there was quite a bit of shade. Very scenic near the marsh and on the wooden bridges. $3/car to drive into the park- closes at sunset. There were a couple of sandy spots but w/ the rain yesterday they were barely noticeable* Review edited 12/27/2009* Review edited 12/27/2009

    Parked at South Entrance - some of the area was part of a "prescribed burn," so the ground was all turned up and I had to walk my bike through it. Otherwise, though, the trail was good! Saw turtles, wild turkey, raccoons... Be sure to pick up a map at the entrance b/c all trailways aren't marked clearly! The main road of trail is well marked, wide and easy to ride.
    North Entrance - more people, awesome trails for beginners/intermediate. Pretty flat, but some nice twists and turns here and there!

    Coastal trial ideal for beginners. Around five miles of jeep roads in this State Seashore. Contact: a.lmilton@worldnet.att.net
