Mountain Biking Morris Bridge Park

***   Add a review
#62 of 283 mountain bike trails in Florida
#2,013 in the world

The bike tail begins behind the rest rooms, follow the footbridge under the road, then follow the two-track south. The trails are a little sandy in spots and it floods during heavy rains. If summer, spray yourself with anti-mosquito spray. Approximately 10-15 miles of trails. If you hook-up with someone who knows the area, they can connect you with another 10-15 miles of trails.

    Great beginner to intermediate trails and a fun way to spend the day. Park is well layed out with many options for Trail entrance and a great way to ride about 13 to 17 miles off-road through flowing wooded old Florida.

    Kudos to SWAMP for building and maintaining this trail system. For an area lacking topography for a 5-star trail, the local team has done a great job. 7 days past a rain, the trails were surprisingly hard-packed.

    Morris Bridge is what it is-flat easy trails through the woods, with a sand pit from what I remember. It has been a while since I have ridden this, since there are much better options available in the area with Balm and Alafia. If you need to do some miles or an easy loop, it is an ok option, but there was a lot of sand and poor trail conditions in the past, which drops it a star. Go check out the other local superstars instead. Worth the extra drive.* Review edited 2/18/2012

    This trail is great for newer riders, and great for those who want fast XC miles! you can get about 30 miles in if you hit every trail. There is also a Tuesday eve ride which turns into a night ride in the fall/winter time. For more info on these trails see www.mywta.org * Review edited 11/21/2010

    Pretty easy trails, nothing really crazy just like the other reviewers have said, but definitely a nice weekend local ride. The mosquitos are out in full force- stop for longer than 2 seconds and they are all over you. Bring repellant! Lots of sugar sand in the main trail areas, not so much on some of the offshoot trails. Indian was closed, but all the other trails were open and in good shape. I rode "Gator Bait", which was supposed to be very difficult; didn't find it that tough at all, and I am a novice MTB'er. The trails at Alafia and Santos are much tougher than some of these. Lots of roots, not as much as Alafia, but still a good amount on some of the trails.
    The Pit area right off the main riding area is nice, but all the sugar sand made it a pain to ride. Still, you can select some good lines and have a good time powering up small hills and doing some small jumps here and there. Too bad they didn't make this area larger, it'd be a good skills area. Overall, I was happy with the setup.
    If you enter the Wilderness Park area, there is a spot to make a donation for the trails; I did, and it's one way to preserve some good riding areas. Please donate! There isn't a bike wash area here; you have to head up the road a bit to the main park area, where there is a small boat ramp, and then you will find a hose to wash off your bikes.
    Good ride for families and beginners. Intermediate riders will also find a lot of fun stuff to explore as well. Advanced riders-head to Alafia or Santos.* Review edited 7/12/2008

    Rode last wekk here for the first time. Not bad, pretty big, a little variety, but so easy to get lost in. I am going to have to do it backwards next time, because I could not figure out how to do the whole loop without getting turned around even though there is a good marking system that is supposed to help you... guess Im a noob.

    My son (8) and I rode this for his first trail ride. Excellent choice for children and beginner riders of all ages.

    I only rode a short portion with my son, but I dropped $5 in the donation pole on my way out because I enjoyed the area so much. I love the singletrack where you're in nature and have to pay attention rather than think about how your tail hurts riding the road. It's beautiful, peaceful, and fun to ride. A GPS really makes things nice and a map is a necessity, you can get a few good ones from http://www.outdoortravels.com/biking_fl_wildernesspark.html.

    I am a beginner myself, so I'm no authority, but these trails were a blast for me. A huge network of single- and doubletrack through pine forests, palmetto thickets, around lakes and over creeks, etc. Some tricky spots with lots of tree roots and tight turns between trees. OK, I went down twice and bled once. I'll be back here.
