Trail Description
About this trail
This is the truest XC trail in Florida, lots of distance with continuous gradual up and down grades. The whole trail is fine for anyone with just a little experience from a technical standpoint, when the trail describes beginner, intermediate, or difficult it is referring to the lungs you need to complete the hills. Very enjoyable. The trail is all network and small loops so you can easily ride 3 miles or 30 miles as your heart desires. Park is gorgeous in the trails except a little sun exposure on Tug Nut.

Review: Tough workout trail! Leg and lung burner for us older guys. Gradual climbs you don't realize you're on at first but the descents are the payoff

Review: Awesome trails that are well marked. Lots of hill climbing on some trails. Feels like you are in the mountains on tug nut. Beautiful scenery.

Review: Great trail to ride. not much Hike a bike at all, rode in December so in the Florida heat of July it may be different. also, it was very dry conditions. A little difficult to navigate but it is also a great place to get lost, there are utility line trails and double-tracks that can lead you back out quickly if plans change. I can highly recommend for all levels. Parking is 4 dollars at the entrance per car or 2 dollars if you arrive on bike or walk in.

Review: This place is amazing and way under-rated. I drove up to northern central Florida to ride Ocala, after 1 day at both Santos and Vortex, I decided to look for something else and found this.

I'm very happy I took a chance with it, now to be fair, if you're looking for highly technical terrain, this is not for you, most of the terrain here just flows, which is precisely what I liked so much, its odd to find such long flowy down and uphills in FL. What so great about it is how different it is from most highly recognized trails in FL (Ocala, Alafia, etc).

Admittedly, its complicated to navigate as the network is huge and full of loops, but you're never really lost if you carry a map with you. If you find yourself riding in the open, you made a wrong turn, all the good stuff is in the woods.

From a non mtb perspective, I saw a lot of wildlife on the trails, spent two hours there and spotted numerous deer

Review: I was originally skeptical based on reviews and YouTube videos. I only got to ride about 10 miles of trails. A very cool place. Everything from basic flat to longer climbs, switch backs, downhills. Probably best to plan a day with a break in the middle to ride all of it. The one downside some of it is not marked well.
