Mountain Biking Jonathan Dickinson State Park

****   Add a review
#155 of 282 mountain bike trails in Florida
#9799 in the world

It has three levels of difficulty from the novice to the more technical riders. Green is easy, blue is intermediate, and black is hard. Know your limits enjoy. Trail is single track, with roots, jumps, wooden bridges, and switch backs. You can take it easy or make a day of it. Although the trails are short, they offer some nice elevation changes and are designed to be very flowy. During the summer there is pretty much ZERO shade so be prepared. Tortoise and Hare trails are a blast to hammer down and just go. All routes lead back to the main parking lot. Camping in the area is also great, and you can ride the paved trail they have from the campground to the off road sections and add a good amount of miles onto your day.

    Great continuous track of trails, well maintained by local club. Lots of man-made features like ramps and berms as well as a nice flow from beginner to intermediate to more advanced technical riding skills (you go from gentle bumps at the trailhead to some deep sand and roots out on the Root Loop and Osprey trails). If you're going to ride here over time joining the club is a good deal (save money on a year's worth of park entrance fees). Club Scrub volunteers are on site at the trailhead many weekends with info, food for sale, and advice.

    Trail itself is nice. I used to rate it 5 stars for the area but after several issues with trail nazi's trying to cause me harm I have to change it. You are not allowed to jump or loop the fun sections according to this new no sesion rule. This gives them the entitlement to hurt you for breaking the rules. If you do more than 3 passes it will be enough time for a bored volunteer below to walk up and try to crash you on your next pass if one happens to be around. If you decide you want to do the jumps make sure you got a witness.

    The people monitoring the trail are more dangerous than the trail could ever be. They justify wrecking people with "Well you broke the rules you deserve to get hurt." This is why Florida sucks for true mountain bikers.

    Now that the finished renovating Bunker Hill this whole entire trail is a ton of fun and full of challenges. Everything from rocks, sand, jumps, table tops, roots, and of course speed. My favorite trial by far in Florida

    Really enjoy riding here! Well maintained and fun!. The park does too many controlled burns through the bike area, so no real ability for any shade to grow. Great in the winter, BRUTAL in the summer!!!

    Plenty of flow to be had here, do not let the videos fool you. Tortoise > Prickly Pear > 8/10 > Silo > Hare > Bunker Hill is a real fun/fast segment to run through if you do not want to hit the entire trail. The berms here are very well built and can handle quite a bit of speed. Top marks to the Club Scrub for putting together such a fun trail.

    I LOVE THIS TRAIL. The trail gnomes here are fantastic. It's fast and hard packed in most areas, great scenery. One trail on the back side was still flooded, but there is still lots of singletrack to be ridden. There is not a lot of canopy so I can imagine it being hot in the summer. It was 5 dollars to enter and you can ride all day. Bring water. The main trail head has a technical section good for warm ups.

    Went before irma and had a blast. Enough little features on the easy trails to have fun even as an advanced rider. some tight little sections and skinnies, one trail called 8/10 is literally just a really, really long pump track. Jumps and drops are littered throughout the park. Recommend to anyone with a bike and open mind.

    Right now the back half is almost unusable it is so sandy. We really need some rain to help pack it. If you go right now I would recommend staying on the front half by turning left at the first paved road you would normally crooks to the right to continue. There are still some very sandy spot in store but manageable. I am running Noby Nics 2.6 and an 11-42 rear cassette and used the big cog frequently on the back and still had to walk through sand that was over my rim in some cases.

    AWSOME trail with some slow climbs and fast and flowy descents with lots of fun little table tops....Oh and there is a pump track and technical obstacles at the trail head.

    Today was demo day and the Giant/Liv reps tuned are bikes today and taught us a lot! The tracks was dusty but they really keep it up and have made it safer than it was a year ago and have added a lot of features as well. Very involved Scrub Club always improving it.

    Great trail to ride when all the others are underwater. The Gator trail is ridiculous as the roots are so close and so high... I end up walking over them. Some really nice boardwalk style snake banked turns and options for various levels of skill.

    After years of owning a mountain bike and riding on the street I finally tried a MB trail. 2 different worlds. I stayed on the easy trail so I didnt kill myself. I had just an incredible time, talked to a few others riders who gave me guidance. The park itself is also a nice ride as fairly flat with some inclines but it was the MB trail that drew me. Will be back for more on the easy level and possibly try the intermediate at some point. Just awesome!

    Down in Port Saint Lucie for the holiday weekend from Ga, decided to take the 20 min drive for some mountain biking and man was I impressed. It was my fiances first time mountain biking so we started on the skills course and pump track to get her comfortable, she warmed up pretty quick so we took the easy trail which was fun and short. We rode roughly 4 miles on the intermediate track before we called it quite due to a lack of water. The trail was awesome though, loved how much flow there was and how easy of a ride it was. They do a great job building and maintaining the trails. It was cool to see alot of people out there that were into biking, and the people were super friendly! Check it out if your close by!

    Fast, fun and flowy trails with plenty of small jumps, berms, switchbacks etc. Suitable for all skill levels but nothing too difficult.

    Club Scrub keeps improving the trails, over the past year this Trail has gone from ok to great. It's fast paced with fun features that will keep you coming back.

    A very nice trail network overall. The further you get from access roads the less maintenance. The further south you go the less maintenance with more roots and sand. Mostly uncovered. Some areas with a lot of sand and roots..further south. Quick up and downs.

    Very easy Little Cat / Bob Cat at the trail head (north end). The start of the trails is a relatively easy Tortoise. You then have options to go further south on Ranger, back to the trailhead on Hare, or a quick loop on Prickly Pear, 8/10ths, and Silo. Take a picture of the map at one of the many stations.

    Thanks to Club Scrub for keeping this place a great 1-2 hour ride.

    Excellent ride. The day was hot and there is very little shade so bring lots of water. The trail in the front was like a crushed gravel and had good flow. The back trail section had a lot of soft sand and was a little difficult when we rode it. The trail overall was a nice trail and i felt any experience level could ride it as there were several bypass areas around harder obstacles.

    Rode the trail yesterday & it was absolutely awesome with lots of new jumps, drops, tabletops & the downhills are faster than ever! The amount of work & improvements done to the trail is nothing short of amazing. JD is definitely the best local trail!
