Mountain Biking Soldier Creek Park

****   Add a review
#133 of 283 mountain bike trails in Florida
#9,023 in the world

This 1.5 mile track is great for beginner and intermediate riders who want to learn dirt paths. Soldier Creek Trail follows along/around Soldier Creek and makes for interesting sight seeing while riding. The wood features are built well enough. The trail is pretty easy to follow. The parking lot reconstruction added a bike wash and repair station for riders.

Overall, this trail is very good for riders who want to start learning a few technical skills without pushing it too far. There are a hills, flat land, and some jumps. The trail is short enough to loop a few times to try something different each time.

    A nice trail system with a few bypasses and alternate lines. Some sand here and there and wet spots in the lower areas after a rain. It seems to be about 2 miles and goes in a loop back around to the trail head which is nice. As of July 4th the water at the bike wash station is out of order. There's a paved trail that cuts through the system as well.

    I'd give this trail a 6/5 if I could. I rode through four times in one day and didn't get to try every line. Constant splitting paths really add to the excitement of the ride. The trails are cut by people who clearly care and it really shows. I'll be back here a couple hundred times.

    The course is full of tree roots. Not in good condition at all. I would not recommend this course to anyone.

    A lot has changed...

    They had to move the entrance over because of the parking lot reconstruction. Which is fine! The parking lot is wonderful and they added a bike wash/repair station. The entrance picks up just a little after where it originally began. There is also a small section missing from the first turn around (after the seminole trail) where they are doing construction on 17-92. It's been moved back some.

    As a first time rider, you will really enjoy this trail. It's mostly easy and an enjoyable ride. Only down side is that there is some sugar sand. Actually, a lot. There doesn't need to be, we just need to stop clearing the path of leaves and small branches, it's ruining the trail. We shouldn't have all that carpet on the trail. There is a lot of splits in the trail that are not getting rode as much. Maybe we can touch those trails a little more :)

    What you don't know is, if you're a returning rider, there is a lot missing. The last quarter of the trail is missing. It's just a straight path towards the end. There used to be some other trails that took you through some fun features to ride. I was able to find my way through the path that took you to the pool, but I had to go over and under some fallen trees. There used to be a lot of here; some of the wood features are still there. I did find an abandoned bridge that had been completely flipped over. I'm assuming that and a lot of the fallen trees are from Irma. Besides the damage, these paths have been completely removed or over grown. The good news is that it's a lot more organized. The last section was a little unorganized.

    Overall, still fun to ride.

    Unfortunately the bridges leading to the beat section (the optional in section 4) have not been replaced yet. So it's just a quick out and back at the moment. Totaling 1.3 miles, I'll need to ride this thing a few times back to back to make it worth the drive. Sure would be more fun if there were more features.

    I really enjoy this trail. Though it is short, it is a pretty ride through the woods with some challenging sections. A good place to learn and improve!

    Small trail. Not not very fun if you want a challenge. Don't waste your time if you don't leave near.

    Decent trail for the Orlando area. Not very big. Only a couple miles. Environmental study side was flooded out but baseball field side was open and trails were nice.

    Great trail for riders who are comfortable with moving up from paved trailed. This trail is good for practice before moving on to more difficult obstacles. There are hills, few jumps, and wood features to get the hang of things.

    I learned to mountain bike ride on this trail and it was great as a beginning course. It is pretty easy with a couple features to help teach skills. The bridges are a bit sketchy but are a good way to learn bike control. It is short so take a few laps to get the most of it. And be prepared to get dirty! And watch out for hikers; they have absolutely no trail etiquette and treat the trail as if it were made strictly for hiking.

    This is a nice small trail that has a good amount of features. It is about 1.5 miles long and is great for an after work trail.

    A nice little singletrack near the city. It is family friendly with some harder options. Some of the bridges are scetchy, I know a few people that have fallen off them but they aren't that high. It is great if you don't have much time and you want to get a little riding in over the weekend.

    Great little trail. Fun from beginning to end. Keeps you on your toes for the most part.

    THE ADDRESS IS DECEIVING... The address gives you the park on the West side of 17-92. The trail from that spot is accessed by riding the bike path east, over the bridge that takes you over 17-92, and the trail will actually cross the bike path. There is signage on the path, but not at the park where the listed address takes you.
    It's very short. That being said, it has become My 9 year old son's "home practice track." Nine year old's have to have titles for everything. This also tells you a nine year old can ride the whole trail. What I like about it though is that the trail itself roams safely around Soldier Creek at a beginners level of difficulty. Built into the sides of the trail are a number of a bit more challenging off shoots that all then merge back into the main trail. A few wooden bridges to keep things fun, and enough ups, and downs to give the impression of "mountain biking." Not sure I would travel to this spot because of the short reward, but since I only live about 7.5 miles away, I ride there, ride the trail 2-3 times, and head home. That's a decent ride.

    Great little trail. Rides fast and fun. Several new spurs have emerged to bypass a few water damaged areas. Signing could help until new path is completely established.
