Trail Description
About this trail
Very fast and fun single track maintained by Ocala Mountain Bike Association. It has a main yellow loop with good flow and blue options throughout. This is an intermediate trail due to it's speed and some tight spaces. It is very shaded and there are some amazing trees throughout. The Red section is steep with some fast switchbacks and sudden drops. Lots of fun with a little of something for most. If you go to the Lincoln community park and go to the dog park the trail entrance is on the far end.

Review: I just moved here from Ohio and while I have ridden some really nice trails.....this one made me feel like I was home!! I HAVE ONE ISSUE: Perhaps it's just me. While I don't mind seeing horseback riders out enjoying the same beautiful scenery as I do on the trail, I do struggle with them being on the same trails. A couple things: poop gets slippery when you're going fast and hitting the switchback fast. And, the speed I am going versus the speed they are is bound to be a recipe for a collision and I am afraid the biker is going to take the greatest loss. However, my greatest beef (because the horseback riders that I encounter were very courteous in yielding to the bikers) is the fact that they were riding their horses on the wooden obstacles and the Skills Park. ORBA did an excellent job of building this stuff super sturdy BUT - Are horses allowed to be on the trails and, mores so, on the obstacles??? If not, I would really be willing to pitch in for some signage.

Review: the access trail is downhill the whole way, that means uphill all the way back. Trails ares easy but not beginner trails, but very nice area and parks to ride around for beginners. could actually ride from trails to downtown for lunch, but did not see any bike parking areas.

Review: A decent trail. The ride was fun. The beginning was slightly confusing because it opens up to a wide path (with some erosion) . But, i was supposed to turn right and I didn't see it because i was moving quickly. It lead to the main loop, but i wish the trail had something preventing me from going straight, where i needed to turn right.

Overall, the trail marking was just weird. I don't know how to explain it, but there were several trail markers that made it seem like there were many trails, but you're still riding the same thing. You will cross paths. Take a look at the map on omba.org first to give you an idea of the ride before starting. (Map does not show Helter Skelter or Harry Scary)

Pure Adrenaline is a fun drop, BUT, all fun is ended almost immediately. You're going too fast to make the hard turn left. It needs something to flow after that drop. Extra crispy was really fun. Nice flow. Little Dipper was a nice jump. You have to sneak up the easy trail quickly to jump it again.

Review: Good park close to Orlando area. Intermediate section is not so hard. Skillville is my favorite part. Trails are long and Markings are ok they could be better. Sugar sand is fun if you power through. Like the other reviews say helter skelter is challenging and long don't leave it for last. All in all its definitely a good ride and worth doing.

Review: I've been riding several of the trails in Orlando, new to the sport but I can say this has been my favorite yet! Lots of fun downhill, great climbs to get your burn on, skillville was a blast. I'll be going back very soon. I typically ride Soldier Creek so this was a lot of fun to change it up. Conditions were a little wet the other day and the sugar sand wasn't fun, but only hit it on the downhill and powered through it.

Review: Great trail to go out and do a few laps to get the legs burning. The guys out there are always working on the trail making it better. Fun flowy sections, Good climbs, Small Skill area with some fun skinnys to play on. Then there is Helter Skelter, Super fun red with a real flowy downhill section, and technical climbs. It reminds me of a shorter tamer Moonscape. Overall not the longest trail or the most technical, but the quality is ace. Plus the best burger in town is right down the road at The Streat Corner.

Review: I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. It's short but had enough technical spots and obstacles to make it an exciting ride. The only tip I have is to not ride Helter Skelter last. It was not an easy ride. The whole time I was on it all I could think was, "when will this end?!" All in all, it was very enjoyable. There's a dog park right next to it as well as a Racetrac gas station. Part of the trail loops next to a couple of homes. Keep riding and you'll see 441.

Review: I was not a big fan but it's close to Orlando. Was pleasantly surprised to find a brand new expert loop separate from the main loop called Helter Skelter. The best part of the trail.
