Mountain Biking Little Big Econ State Forest

****   Add a review
#23 of 286 mountain bike trails in Florida
#987 in the world

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.

Rider questions

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