I expected a fast ride down the double track trails (yellow, red, and white blazes). The first quarter mile on the yellow blaze used to be a grassy double trail with hard-ish pack on the sides. Now it's all soft sand. I guess it's a good workout.
The last mile of the yellow blaze is a mess. Branhes are all over the place and the terrain is soft. Again, good for a hard workout but pulling limbs and branches out of your spokes is no fun. The red blaze was much better. Not hard pack, but you could maintain a good pace.
The white blaze is in better condition. A decent pack with a few softer grassy areas.
Both north (white blaze) and south (yellow/red blazes) have their rewards. At the end of each trail, you end up at the St. Johns River. An amazing view of natural Florida. Also expect to see a lot of wildlife. Deer, gators, birds of prey, large and small birds, and a lot of cows (be on the lookout for patties).
