Trail Description
About this trail
At least 10 miles of singletrack, possibly more. Many mile of hard pack, with a few areas of soft sand. It is pretty flat, but has some technical areas, a lot of switch backs. The trails are marked for beginner through expert. There are a large number of tree roots, which will beat up you and your bike.

Review: Fun intermediate trail system with an excellent campground too. There are essentially 4 trail systems at this park, a double track beginner loop, the South loop, a fun intermediate trail with good flow marked blue (intermediate), Z Line - a tight and twisty trail with a some fun technical features that is truly intermediate, (though it has a black, expert rating) and the E line - a trail system across the street on the boy scout camp side. This one, like the others two, totals around 5 miles of riding, but it is a loop with some spur trails as well. Mostly intermediate, and a bit easier than the other side, but has one root hill some will walk up when the direction is applicable. Enough speed, stay to the right, and you can clean it. Trails run single direction and are well marked, depending on the day. The cool thing is that you can ride Mon and Tues feeling like you got a whole new set of trails, good stuff. Watch out for the occasional unaware hiker, sometimes they dot find their trails to be exciting enough. Be patient, keep our trails open. Note- Lots of roots here, makes for some cool and interesting climbs. Not much soft sand, and lots of shade. If you like the beach, Hanna has an excellent beach, check it out. Lastly, the campground is very nice, and it's a great way to ride the trails at night.

Review: A rare Florida trail system with some fun natural elements! Note: the map given at entrance is deceptive because the hardest trails are outlined in green (oops, green is usually easiest) and intermediate trails are red. Also, trail markers do not correspond with the map (no trail names on map, no map junction numbers on trail signs!) -- or at least it's challenging to figure out for a first-timer. Trees/jungle-like foliage make line of sight navigation impossible but trails were fun and in great shape. Most trails are pretty fast, flat and easy with switchbacks and tight squeezes between trees. Roots once in a while, no rocks to speak of. A few short climbs. Great place for a beginner to test and build skills. Expert trails not that hard. Note some trails have reverse direction on certain days of the week.

Review: For Jacksonville and the immediate surrounding area, this is the most extensive trail system. Approximately 12mi of trails. (Don't know where they got 20mi from. I double checked the map and my math) Mostly singletrack. If you want to ride without having to repeat any trails to get your mileage in, come here. This park is pretty much in my backyard. I've maintained an annual pass here for 6yrs, and I ride here 3-4 days a week minimum if it isn't raining. PROS: 1.) It's at the beach! 2.) Most Jacksonville trail systems are very flat, but this one has its changes in "elevation" LOL. You have to ride the other local trails to appreciate Hanna. 3.) Tool station, bike wash, changing room at the park's entrance. 4.) Multiple exit points all over the trails. Makes it really easy to throw in the towel and go home or use... 5.) Bathrooms. Lots of bathrooms and port-o-potties. Some have showers for rinsing your body off. Or go into the ocean and do your business. CONS: 1.) This is a recreational park that hosts many different types of activities. So on the bike trails in particular, you will see hikers, XC runners, and weekend warriors/explorers. There is a dedicated pedestrian trail, but they seem to prefer hiking the bike trails. I've asked hikers why, and they told me because the bike trails received more traffic, and are therefore wider and better groomed. I have personally walked all of the pedestrian trails, and disagree. I would love to take my bike on the hiking trails just for a new experience. They should just allow ALL types of activities on ANY trail. I say this because trailheads and signage and direction changes are clearly marked everywhere, but many people don't read them or choose to ignore them. You must stay alert. 2.) Any obstacles, technical features, logs, smaller downed trees, anything that adds more FUN, will eventually be removed by park staff or SORBA Jax. Usually sooner than later. Maybe for liability? I don't know. You have to keep your eyes peeled and get creative. I'd like to end with saying that the Lil Joe trail is the most challenging and my personal favorite, but it's also the shortest trail in the park! 0.2mi. It'd be awesome to have a lengthier trail like Lil Joe. Also, ignore the black diamonds. Nothing here is truly "black diamond." Hone your basics here, get familiar with your bike. Have fun!

Review: Great for intermediate riding, some sharp turns, a bunch of roots that provide some challenges, and easy to access once inside the park. Awesome trails!

Review: The trails are running very well as of late due to all the rain. The "North Side", aka "E-Line" has a bit of water right at the beginning by the fence. Trails need some trimming due to the rain. The SORBA Chapter is working with the City to work on some of the erosion. A paver and lime rock project will begin in late August. The Chapter will do a few sections at a time over the next several months to help with some of the soft sand erosion.

Review: Had an absolutely great time riding Hanna Park all of the trails are pretty well-manicured could use a little bit of love in some areas it's good to ride right after a rain but it's a little bit slower many different trails to choose from and they change the directions on opposite days of the week so unlimited possibilities I recommend

Review: Awesome trails, and friendly people. Everything was well maintained and the tool/air area at the front gate was a nice touch, especially since I blew a tube after our final run on the way back to the truck.
