    The trails are great, when they're smooth. On nice weekends, beware of the trails the equestrians use,as they are very muddy.

    Mostly intermediate that has a few Advanced features. Felt it was poorly marked. My first time on the trail and got horribly lost. I probably started at the wrong point in the trail but there were not very many markers stating what splits were what and where to go and had to go up on the main road to find my way back to my truck. Overall Trail is good and will still probably return to try the trail again.

    The best trail system you will find on the eastern shore. Trails are poorly marked. Stick with tuckahoe valley, pee wee, little Florida and creek side cliff as these are single track with some elevation change. The other trails in the park are not challenging at all.

    First time riding on tuckahoe and the first ride with my new trek and i had a blast.

    The "Tuckahoe Valley" trail was kinda slow and calm but a nice ride with a lot of nice scenery, wide trails and a few bridged water crossings.

    The "Pee Wee" trail, don't let the name fool you, was a lot more technical with plenty of winding high speed downhills and narrow trails winding down the side of tuckahoe creek. A few drop offs and plent of technical root obstacles. There is also some tough stretches of sand that can make it really difficult to move without walking the bike.

    The "Little Florida" trail was too over grown to ride, but they did have a sign that warned it was unmaintained due to the recent weather, so they did at least give us a heads up. Overall tuckahoe was a great ride.

    I rode the valley trail down and the pee wee trail back up for about a 7 mile loop. Definitely recommend this park if your in the area the only down side is the trail markers can be hard to follow, the trials are multi use trail for hikers, bikers and horses and there is plenty of horses evidence, if you know what I mean.

    This was a pleasant surprise, a great trail to learn on, or if you just want a not too stressful ride, the only problem I had was that we kept ending up on the wrong trail. there are so many cross trails for hikers, horseback riders, birdwatchers and nature lovers, but many of these trails look like good singletrack. Recommend keep a printed map if you want to stay on route or program gps ahead of time.

    I started out parking in the lot by Pee Wee's Trail. Overall some nice views and a few jumps and drops. Nothing too advanced although the sand adds to the challenge. A good leisurely ride and decent short climbs for the Eastern Shore. An enjoyable ride worth the visit if you are in the area.

    Some nicely built jumps and decent amount of steep but short climbs with a lot of sandy patches creating some technical controlled turns and braking. Very little to any rocks but some exposed roots .

    It was a beautiful day so i really couldnt have any complaints. The trails are basically flat, in terms of mountain biking. Great if you are just getting into mountain biking but would be very boring for advanced riders. Unless you're just looking for a leisurely cruise. Which I was. Trails were in great condition aside from a little sand but it's the eastern shore, what do you expect. Fun cruise with the gf and her friend.

    Fun ride overall. I like going from single track to gravel road. Keeps the ride interesting. The water trail is unrideable

    Unfortunately horses have done a lot of damage to many sections in the park and there's quite a bit of crap to avoid on the trails. I guess that's too be expected with an equestrian center there. There are also downed trees, overgrown parts and sections pretty washed out. I made the best of it and rode every trail except part of the little Florida trail which had a really muddy creek crossing ravaged by hoof prints. Riding on a lot of sand was new for me and a good challenge. Run lower pressure or bring a Fatbike here.

    Excellent trail, with moderate sloped. Lots of bridges and slopes to keep it interesting.
