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.

Q: How do I not get eaten by a gator.... sorry I'm new to Florida -Guest

A: You can't avoid it. You are dead already and you don't even know it. The gators are coming for you...they are coming for us all. Seriously speaking though, just keep a healthy distance from them and they will leave you alone. Don't do anything stupid and you will be fine. Oh, and for the love of God, if you value your life DON'T SWIM IN LAKE JESSUP. That's all. Happy riding.

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: 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.

Review: Solid trail system close to Orlando UCF area. Make sure to grab a map trails are not well marked. Access roads are very sandy so only use if you must. Snake trail is also sandy. Meat head, two bridges, outback, zombie, Yahoo are all great trails you will be sure to enjoy.

Review: I have a love/hate relationship with this trail. First the negative, there is a lot of sugar sand. A lot. Next the positive, it really is a great trail set and the trails were way better maintained than last time I rode them. They also put a bathroom at one of the trailheads... which is awesome!!! But it was locked... not awesome. Overall it is a good intermediate trail set.

Review: About 30% of this trail is very sandy. The rest of this trail is flat with very few technical obstacles, climbs, or descents. Very scenic trail, though, with many great views overlooking Econlockhatchee River. Tons of wildlife including turtles, fish, birds, deer, and gators. To get the best out of this trail, I would recommend to get a good map or the map on Strava worked pretty good for me.

Review: Trail SO difficult to understand - markers very difficult to find a lot missing. Very sandy. We rode 10 mi and got lost on way back. Tons of roots and nice natural obstacles - not an easy trail. Lots of sand. Trail along river very narrow and sandy not my favorite. This is a great ride but so badly marked that it was a bit stressful. Get a map from parking lot and map on your cell !!!!!
