Mountain Biking Okeeheelee Park / Pinehurst / Green Acres Freedom Park

***   Add a review
#223 of 282 mountain bike trails in Florida
#11474 in the world

3 miles of tight technical turns with more logovers than I have seen on much longer trails. There are propably 15 or more but good ones very tight assembly. Like most of the Palm Beach Co. bike trails it is a lot of sugar sand and cabbage palm roots but if you catch it in the rainy season it can be reasonably fast.

Rider questions

Q: I personally like seeing people and pets enjoy nature. I dont think it would be a big deal. If you encounter any dbags just say ok sorry.

Q: Is this trail dog friendly
A: I've seen people walking the canal sides of the trails with their dogs. I personally like it, just keep a leash in hand just in case.

    The trail description needs to be updated - there are 5 miles of trail now and some very technical sections - this park is a ton of fun now!!

    This is a fun and moderately flowy system. Some sections have a lot of roots. Last time I was here around 11/27/17 the trails were running good. Somewhat poorly marked in certain sections. Just stay on a path and eventually you will see a road, park canal or trailhead. The canal sides looked like a bulldozer destroyed parts of the trails, but the system is still ride-able and worth checking out. I've seen people with dogs and runners out too, which is nice. Thank you FORCE.

    Its awesome for a quick workout. Not my style though. Its not a fast flowy trail, i guess some people enjoy getting slowed down by sand, ridiculous roots. Some areas make no sense to me when your moving at a fun pace and all of a sudden get bombarded by roots and sand. But i cant complain when its close by and a good place to practice. Maybe one day we can get notice of a trail maintenance day and everyone can come together to rid the trail of slow annoying areas. I would definitely contribute

    The trail is open as of today. There is still a close sign on the south entrance but the trail is open. There are a lot of trees cut down and shrubs removed. I don't know why I liked it more Woody. Just an update

    I like this trail because it has quite a lot of canopy coverage. I Florida that is a big deal in the summer. There are a lot of roots but that make for good practice. There are some more advanced sections towards the middle. Fun trail.

    Start by parking in the Freedom Park. Then ride the side walk back out the entrance and go south to the trail entrance. The trail is fun tight single track, it just has too many roots to be nice and fast. Also has some sugar sand that needs to be covered with something eventually. All in all good trail!

    11/19/13 Trail is in very good shape after light rains. I was pleasantly surprised with this trail system. It has some fun, tight flowy singletrack with some berms, jumps, and log piles thrown in. Short at about 3.5 miles but 2 or 3 laps will give you a good workout.

    A lot of tight trees, sharp turns, and log overs. Excellent trail for sharpening up technical skills. Not a long loop at just 3miles... so what. Just do it again!

    The renovation of the new bike paths has been outstanding with two big drops with carpets on them has made the trail a smooth ride on the sides that makes the bike wheels bite in them! This is I think an Intermediate Mountain bike trail with the new improvements and maintainance in my opinion..with a Novice technical paths and skillful routes. With a few camel backs along the way you will make yourself a good workout for the day w/ 3 miles!!!

    Great track, very fast. First time riding took only 45 minutes. Some good drops and a lot of log overs. Not much climbing. A lot of sections with roots but there are bypasses. There is a lot of tree cover so the sun / heat was not an issue. Very little sugarsand but it has been raining lately. This is a great track to do twice in a row. Its about 3.6 miles long

    Fun trail. The second half after that incline (near a factory or something) is nice and flow-y, easily my favorite part to fly up then down. That said, getting to the second half is something I still have trouble after riding here 4 times. There is an area where there isn't signage and I end back up at this log that is splitting the trail two different ways (if you go left it takes you to an uphill then a down-hill drop with a gap in it). I'm not sure what I do different to get to the second half and I wish I knew because it's kind of frustrating. The roots in the more technical sections at the later half are a bit difficult for me still, but thats my lack of skill.

    Other than getting lost, it's a great track that I'm trying to ride 3 times a week.

    So many log-overs...the trail was fun. This trail has those absurdly large roots.

    This trail is a great fun quick ride. I usually ride it three times with a break in between. The first half of it doesn't have much flow to it but the last half definitely does. The last half also has some jumps that I couldn't/wouldn't do. This was the second trip I made out there and would go out again. It was kinda of confusing the first time but you understand it more the more you ride it. There are some trails that branch off the main trail and you should take those if you want a longer and more difficult ride. One of the loops has a very technical cabbage/ palmetto root section. It has some aspects of both the green circle and the blue square so it fits somewhere in between those. The trail builders have laid down carpet where the sand pits are so it's not band anymore.
    The entrance to the trail is at the SW corner of the soccer fields.
    What are you doing reading this??? Get out and ride!!!

    Nice ride. It is very much for beginners. I am brand new and I finished no problem. People have been keeping it up have done a great job. I only encountered one place with sugar sand. ** Ok I have ridden it a few more times and there is quite a bit of sugar sand depending on which trail you are on. Some challenging parts for the more experience.

    Like someone mentioned before very tight fit in places where you will catch a handle.
