Mountain Biking Point Washington State Forest

****   Add a review
#96 of 283 mountain bike trails in Florida
#3,061 in the world

Trails are fun, mostly flat, twisty and somewhat sandy. There may be 20 miles of trails if one is willing to explore into Deer Lake State Park. I'll say straight out that these trails aren't in my top ten list but they were a great save when I was into town for work and needed a nice ride. On the plus side you can ride and then jump in the gulf!

    These trails are very sandy and not very good. Better for hiking than biking. There are some pretty wooded areas.

    A lot of double track and not much here. It was good for a new ride and needing some none road miles while on vacation. Anywhere natural surface is better than asphalt. Didn't ride a lot of the area. Was okay once just to explore somewhere new.

    I don't think there is a Point Washington State Forest trail per se, but there are 2 trails that I rode while on vacation in South Walton area that snake through the forest. The first is Longleaf Greenway trail which is an out and back that connects to Eastern Lake Trail, which is inside a state park and requires a $2.00 admission fee. Both trails feature similar terrain: flat, covered with pine needles, occasionally sandy and rooty. Of the two, Longleaf seemed a little twistier and funner, but I recall getting lost along the trail somewhere because of the numerous intersections with nature/hiking trails. Eastern Lake Trail was well marked and has 3 loops of varying lengths. Here's a really nice map to see where the trails are if you are vacationing in the area and want to get your ride on: http://www.waltonoutdoors.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/PointWashTrail.pdf

    I also rode on a 29er hardtail and did have to walk some of the sandier parts, but definitely doable without a fat bike.
