Mountain Biking Lines Tract

#187 of 285 mountain bike trails in Florida
#6,134 in the world

$1 day-use fee. Bathroooms, but not water. Flat trail, no real technical stuff. Layout is OK, but I got lost a number of times. Trail is marked, but I still got lost with a map that was available at the Kiosk and a GPS. Trail is mostly in covered areas under trees and runs a good ways along Lake Talquin. I did have to pull off 11 ticks when I got done with this ride. So be warned. The site is broken down into two loops for shorter rides. But if you do the entire thing, it's almost 10 miles.

    The trails are pretty covered in pine needles. It is hard to see the trail. Some trees have fallen and it is difficult to see the blue trail markings on the trees. If you stick to the dirt roads you can ride in the park. But the single track is just not very good right now.

    Trail report:
    Hiked the trail today and saw where the State forest maintenance crew had recently mowed so trail is brush free.
    Looks like they also cut downed logs.
    Pine cones and small branches on trail but nothing over wrist size and easy to pull out of the way.
    I picked up a fresh brochure at the kiosk and followed the slightly faded red blazes.

    Not a bad trail, very well marked and plenty of elevation change. This is a great trail for what it is, a backcountry trail. If you are expecting super well maintained berms and features this is not the trail for you. Honestly it reminds me more of TN or Carolinas more than anything in FL. The more usage this trail gets the better it will be as well. Definitely give this trail a shot if you're looking to camp or just get out of the city away from people for a few hours.

    Trail is in need of some serious love and attention. Longleaf loop overgrown to the point of almost being unridable with lots of downed branches, overgrown bushes and grass, and a thick layer of dead leaves. Talquin loop was much better, but still overgrown in spots and a thick layer of dead leaves. If it was maintained I think it would be a nice, fun ride for something different to the usual Tallahassee trail systems. If you're interested in riding this trail I'd recommend checking when the last trail maintenance was or putting a group together to put some work into the trail.

    Description does not explain well at all... NOT flat, but not a lot of elevation... true FL scenery... signage is not quite clear but it all comes back around (loops)... small scenic loop by (Talquin?) Lake.

    Scoot2101 ^^^^ the trails were cleared of overgrown vegetation, downed logs pull aside and paint markings on trees refreshed (January 2015)... should be much easier to ride now.. enjoy.

    On Jan 17th, 2015 we had 24 volunteers from TMBA working on the Lines Tract. Goals accomplished were clearing the trail and refreshing the painted slashes marking directions. The trail should be better to ride and easier to navigate. Thanks to all that participated.
