Mountain Biking Tillie Fowler Regional Park

****   Add a review
#159 of 281 mountain bike trails in Florida

You will pass the single track on the way to the parking area. There's a two-mile single track loop but it's not marked very clearly and additional side trails. On the other side of the parking area are a few more miles of trails, some muddy. It's not very technical but fun for the area.

    The off road trail here, (the one meant for mountain bikes), is mostly FLAT. But it's sprinkled with little jumps both beginner and intermediate level. They're challenging enough to get you injured doing what you love. The potential for getting airborne makes this worth the occasional visit. There is also a set of some consecutive wooden drops. They're steep, so they're fun. But don't expect too much else. The trails are 99% NON-directional, so you're prone to riding the same areas whether you mean to or not. I don't think you can spend a whole day here, just make a pit stop. There's a cool nature trail with an observation tower with a nice view that's a great place to take a break or a lunch.

    Perfect trail for beginners. Wide, flower, minimal roots stay on easy trail it's no prob. A berm runs thru park and there are a few ups n downs over it on different trails but fairly easy except the hard trail that one is tough.

    For FL this is a great trail. I was at the air station for a few days, saw that there was this trail across from the front gate so I decided to bring my bike. I'm sure glad I did. I'm super impressed with whoever designed and maintains the trails. The area is about as flat as possible, but they managed to build a trail with quite a few 10 to 15' mounds, and cleverly built the trail to intersect them multiple times. They also built some bridges and even jumps. I tip my hat to whoever works these trails, very well done. If you live in the area I highly recommend.

    Very fun park to ride. Trails range from beginner to intermediate. I rode all of the mtb trails and the tower trail. Trails at times were hard to navigate as they werent marked well and had many trails going off main trail. Still very fun to ride and will be back soon.

    Rode Noc this morning and decided to make it a two-trail kind of day...very glad I did! These trails are fast and fun. Not too technical until you hit Hoosker Doo. Got a tip for tackling the climb and drops from a local IMBA member. Thanks for the help and I'll definitely be making another trip here soon!

    This place is definitely worth checking out. Originally after reading reviews I was not sure if I wanted to try it but I am glad I did. Really cool place with some jumps and wooden features. The only other places I have ridden are Nocatee and Hannah.

    Fun riding, lots of jumps and drop offs, not very technical and flows well.

    There are 3 distinctly marked trails now, the main trail is beginner, and there are two other trails marked intermediate (named Nipsy Daiser) and advanced (named Husker Du), the latter having several steep ladder's and a nice birm on third ladder exit (fast ). The intemediate trail crosses and old road bed several times that is pump-able if you are fast enough, other than these features this place is totally flat! You have to work for every ounce of speed you can get, which makes it a good workout track. Typical north florida, roots every where, MTB up and tackle the roots! PS this is my local track and I am grateful for what I have, but do not make a trip just for this place, hit it on the way to Graham swamp or Santos, it's a flowy nice little warm-up.

    Great trail as always! Tree blocking the trail with first half mile before Nipsy.

    MTB trails were dry. As stated not marked real well, but doable. Island loop at the far end is very wet.

    SORBA JAX is not permitted to work on the north trails. They are maintained by The City of Jacksonville.

    It's a nice ride, short but interesting enough not to get boring after 4 or 5 laps.
    My only issue with this ride is that the trail is mostly bi-directional (one short run with the ladder bridges has a single riding direction)
    I always run into at least 3 or 4 people riding the opposite direction from me no matter which way I go, I'm just waiting for someone to sneak up on me in the middle of a jump or sharp corner. Though people are generally considerate and friendly, which is nice.
    The last time I was here was a few months ago, but since then I see some nice new berms, clearing & filling of the trail that made for a much better ride.

    This some sweet little trails. It is smallish, but it's well maintained. Low areas could use some drying time. Loved the brand new wood features( steep climb followed by drop ins to good berms and go do it a few more times.) Nothing else that isn't easily cleared by an adult with extremely modest skills like me.
    Also interesting stuff out there. The land has a history with the Navy dating back at least 100 years. You'll see man hole covers and fire hydrants, and the remains of an old brick road in the northern part.
