Trail Description
About this trail
Winding singletrack network, can be difficult to figure out the first time- study the map at the trailhead carefully, and even then it can take a few visits to understand the layout, because trails are poorly marked. However, the riding is excellent- starting north from the trailhead, the paths start easy then become more challenging near the creek and then up by the Econ River. The western half of the park features tight, technical riding to keep things interesting. Minimal elevation change, but some short rises near the creek or river. Jeep roads run throughout the park if a bailout is needed. Most resembles Hanna Park in Jacksonville, but the loop is longer if you ride the whole thing.

Review: This park is not for beginners by any means. If your looking for smooth compact trails with big turns, do not approach. This park is for those who enjoy a technical challenge. Root game here is wild. Trails are kept up decently, but the rain and summer storms really tear it up and swamp the place. Show up on a cooler day with lots of water, low tire pressure, and dry conditions for maximum fun

Review: Sugar Sand. The trails are in bad need of some rain. Unfortunately for for this trail system, it's either mud, or sand. The trail crews do as good of a job as you could possibly do. But, it's an uphill battle.

Review: Great set of trails, lots of roots and sections can flood after heavy rain but always a blast! Great place to get some miles in.

Review: Green and Blue for Florida. I didn't expect so many roots, but it would explain all FS bikes except my friend and me on hardtails. Still had a good time and I'll be back.

Review: Some technical challenges but not many. Would be nice if obstacles were added. Pretty much flat for all trails. You will see gators if it's a sunny day.

Review: This trail can be as challenging as you like. Yes it's mostly green, but pick up speed and enjoy the switchbacks.

Review: Solid trail, definitely would recommend for anyone into dirt/trail mountain biking. Beautiful scenery with plenty of wildlife. For a 360 video of a portion of the trail, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDoUv27_BVg&feature=share

Review: Area has different trails for different levels. Quite a lot of fireroads that trucks can ride on that are easy and wide open, but the sun is intense on these paths. Next are beginner level tracks with tight turns and some roots to navigate and minor (less than 6 inch) drops. Then there are more advanced trails with technical sections that have flow and drops averaging 12 inches to some that are 24 inches. Most of the larger drops ha e alternative paths to bypass them if you aren't up for them. Now has bathrooms and a bike wash at the main parking area. Great variety of trails close to Orlando.
