    Fun ride. Kessel run was tight and twisty and took more than 12 parsecs

    Very easy trail in the Wekiva Basin. The trails are not marked super well (no warning of upcoming trail splits.) It can get pretty tight in some areas with tons of pine trees. The trail though is VERY well maintained and in a beautiful area. For speed seekers, this is a perfect place! For nature lovers, this is a BETTER place. All-in-all this is the most local place that seems to be growing and improving. I can see some AWESOME potential here!

    Great track for the family. Smooth track with lots of turns, tight trees but a fast track. Great for beginner to intermediate riders.

    This is a good trail for anyone that likes good flat track. There is a couple of log overs but nothing too difficult. Some sections are still closed from irma. Pine needle punch had a section closed due to down trees. Some areas were still water covered but had re-routes. I'd recommend this for families or beginners, or even someone that wants a change of scenery with something flowy and mellow. Gatorback is fun with lots of roots to negotiate. Bathrooms and benches at the trail head with a paved trail nearby.

    great little workout. Nothing too hard except the palmetto roots on Pine Cone Puncture. I ride here once a week. Mount Dora trail is best in area for more advanced riding. but i enjoy this as a nice break. Nicely shaded. Mitch'd Up is good too. Fire roads available if out is needed. Pump and bathrooms available as well.

    Very Fun Trail and well marked. Local SORBA has put a lot of work into the trail and it rides very nicely, over 8 miles. certain sections are rootie but they are marked Blue for Hard. Ride it monthly and its a great trail for the area.

    Update:
    As of January 2, 2017 most of the "proposed 2017 expansion" is now open. Marked as trail named "Mich'ed up", this expansion includes an outer loop with an interior loop extension (did not ride) and another small extension loop (not open yet). The large outer loop is fresh and needs to be ridden in but is well marked. Generally tighter and twistier than the main Easy trails.

    I enjoyed having new trail to explore, but currently feel it is difficult to find any flow there. Will ride it more to see if I can adapt.

    Thanks to those that are maintaining and expanding this trail complex!

    Very simple trail, nothing much. The difficult trail is nothing more than a ton of roots, no speed, no dips. Needs to worked a bit.

    Great little trail! Thanks to the crew developing it. Shady and flowy at times. No tabletops or man made technical features but clearly marked and a lot of fun.

    Rode this trail today. Did not try the single Expert loop and only one of the Intermediate tracks. Rode the Beginner loop a few times in alternate directions and enjoyed it.

    Basically easy, little to no elevation change. A few technical (read roots and tight passages) areas to keep it interesting.

    Lots of shaded areas, which is nice in Florida in early September. Some terrain variations between pine needles, grass, and sand. 0verall, easy and accessible.

    I enjoyed my time and will try the intermediate (read: roots and stumps) sections again. The proposed 2017 expansion could make this the best riding trail in the region, in my opinion.

    Looking forward to seeing what develops. Much appreciation to those that made the trail what it is today!!

    Very easy trail. The only difficult part is through the palmetto roots, but that can be by passed. I took my 5 year old daughter here yesterday and she loved it. Great place to introduce mountain biking to the kids.

    Great single track through woods open and shade.
    Great for beginner/intermediate biker. Nice up and downs with a few technical turns and areas. Great local Mtn bike trail.

    Trail starts out real easy and then becomes more challenging as you along. Lots of twists and turns with a few small inclines and lots of trees. In open grass areas lots of cactus to keep you focused.

    This is a beginner trail. I took my 9yr old here today on his BMX bike and he rode a good chunk of the trails. The trail is fun, it flows. There is little to no elevation, but that's by God not design. Designers and cutters did a good job of making an interesting ride out of it. Reminds me of a trail I used to ride in Tallahassee, the Munson Trails. They brought in some clay and made a few speed humps and burmed some turns to make the ride a little more fun. I like it and I'll go back. You can push yourself through there and get a real good workout. I commend the folks who put it together. I'm stoked there are some decent trails popping up closer to Orlando.. Get out there and ride. A lot of that trail is real new and needs to be ridden in. It's in great shape after all this rain too.

    Rode last on Dec. 12, 2014. A lot of the tight turns have been worked out. Trail is still not well-defined yet. Look for orange and green tape and limbs on the side of the trail to guide your way.

    Got confusing by the pond area. The trail goes around and up and over a ridge several times and is supposed to create a loop to get out of there. I had to cut a section and double-back. The pond is kind of in the middle of the trail "system" if you look at a map.

    99% overgrown sand fire roads. Has a ton of potential if actively developed and singletrack trails were made.
    I would definitely be on board to devote some time to work on these.
    Plenty of fire roads to branch off from. At least 5 miles of fire roads I reckon..

    No signage out there yet, just pink tape on the trees to indicate where the trail is. It was overgrown in spots, making it difficult to find out where to go. With more people riding out there and more maintenance, it could be a fun place for beginners. I was the only one out there for the hour or so I was there. Some parts of the trail were so skinny that I couldn't fit my handlebars through the trees.

    A new trail system that is being built. It needs volunteers and people to help ride it in. Is a great start and great for beginners.
