Mountain Biking Sweetwater Preserve

A nice trail that is close to the center of Gainesville. Trail features a little climbing and descending, some tight turns and a couple of log crossings. Typical Florida terrain here…sandy in some sections but not to the point that it’s a pain. This is in an area locals call homeless hills due to some homeless camps in the area. A place worth checking out in Gainesville.
