A: I don't know if you looked through the pictures, but from the captions and comments, it looks like most of the man-made features were removed around 2012

Review: I really liked this trail - much better than the palmetto trail at myakka state forest I rode yesterday. Lots of shade. I rode the north loop. Not far from the beginning, there is a little bridge that I didn't trust - I walked the bike across, but it looks like the boards are rotting. Once you get to the "top" of that loop, there's an intersection, then a bench by the creek. Take a left at the bench for the return part of the loop. After that, there are a bunch of intersections, but I think any way you take will bring you back to the Price bridge. One intersection said "Parking to the left, Bears to the right" written in sharpie on a board. Not sure what's up with that but it was funny :) If it would have said Beers ---> I might have turned right! Perfect little ride for a lunch break workout :) Oh, I saw a cute little Doe too! She wasn't very scared of me :)

Review: Had some difficulty finding the trail head - when you cross the bridge look carefully and you will see trail. Overall, it was worth the drive - interesting and twisty. Plenty of palmetto routes which made it impossible to really get going but also added difficulty. Without them, I would have rated trails easy. Several times I felt like I was going the "wrong way". Going back in a few days to test flow in different directions.

Review: Rode the north half...first time. Lots of loops, hairpin turns, roots, tree gateways, short hillocks. Lots of fun...real workout. Looking forward to doing the southern half.

Review: [NOTE]: I met a local rider who gave me some insight on the location. This is more of speak-easy hidden treasure trail. There is concern for the trails getting rutted out and torn up, especially if wet or during the rainy season. Please be respectful to the local riders and call it a day or go to another location if trail conditions are wet. This is are very unique location an not like any trails I have ridden in South West Florida. There are several other trails within 20 min drive that will be rideable.

Trail Review:
Trails were nice this past week. I made my first 2 visits. It's rated intermediate, but if you try to maintain any sort of speed, some sections could easily be considered black, considering the obstacles, and lack of any real straight or level sections. Plan on standing on your pedals a lot, and if you have a full suspension, you'll probably want to setup for low speed, as the 'roots' everyone talks about are actually native scrub palm trunks. These types of palms grow the trunk along the ground. So many of the root sections are these trunks which average about 5 inches in diameter. The trails are along a creek/river basin which has a lot of natural levies for run off. Loads of drops and small climbs. Also, few of these are straight. You will be very busy picking your lines, diving into corners and concentrating on your next move if you are riding aggressive at all.

Locating The Trail:
I found the easiest way to access the trail is underneath the bridge on W Price, just east of the community center. Access from the east end of bridge on the south shoulder. Trails are both to the north and south of the bridge.

Review: Trails were nice and packed today. No soggy spots. Dam was able to be crossed. Great shape and fun. Didn't ride as far as usual. Wife is still healing from getting wiped out by a wild boar a couple of weeks ago at Carlton Reserve.

Review: Trail was pretty good, scenery exceptional. Rode from Oaks Park to dam. Dam was flowing pretty good, did not cross. Not very well marked. Some areas flooded. Overall a decent ride and will return.

Review: A little difficult to find but pleasantly secluded trail. Tons of roots which get annoying in certain sections. But fast, windy with a good amount of tight turns, small climbs, a few switchbacks, and beautiful scenery. Much of the trail runs along side a creek. It gets cut off by the dammed river/creek at one point so you have to detour through a neighborhood. It's out and back, and the trails aren't marked. We stuck to the right mostly and were fine. Watch out for gators!

Review: I had fun, what else can I say. The trail is a good intermediate trail with lots of switchbacks and small climbs. It runs along a creek and most of it is under the canopy. Decided to break up the drive on the way up to Balm Boyette and check this trail out. The trail was dry today and can be a bit rooty but fun when ridden fast. We were pleasantly surprised. The trail is not well marked, just stick to the right and you'll be fine. Oh, snapped a pic of a 10 foot alligator chilling on the tail.

Review: This was my first time riding trails on a mountain bike. I don't have any experience riding off road on a bike. It's definitely challenging as a new comer but I like the idea of it. I just need more practice and time. I can't wait to get back out and give it another shot!
