Getting there
Go off I-95 at the suntree exit.Drive until you pass a school that looks like a factory and turn left at the stop light (post road).Go to the first stop light and turn right like you are going to go to the other school near there but keep going strait.You are going to go into a big parking lot and look off to the left and you will see a big pavillion.Park near there and you will see a gate just ride through the bike path and you will ride down a trail and end up in a park just look around for trail entrances and you`ll be there all day

    Just visiting in area and appreciate the work that goes into making trails available for cyclist. Nothing challenging here, but enough trail to break a sweat on a warm day. A bit monotonous as most trails look the same with no elevation change and no real features to break up the ride. Good place for beginners to get started with trail riding. i enjoyed the numerous tortoises, rabbits, and snakes I passed. Biggest danger were trail runners running the wrong way on single track bike trails rather than the multi use trails.

    Huge improvements have been made at Wickham park trails. BMBA and others have been working super hard. The trails are getting marked!!!!! So fun. I hear more structures are going to be added.... can't wait.

    I was pressed to decide between beginner and intermediate. There is nothing that isn't rideable, but it's not a smooth ride. As any MTB trail, there are muddy sections, sandy sections, rooty sections, and miscellaneous obstacles. No real elevation changes. I think that the only time that I shift down is when I'm in some tight winding turns. The wooded area at Wickham Park is limited, so when the trail was cut, space was well used. Hence, a lot of tight turns.

    It takes a ride or two to figure out the flow of the trail sections and where the forks lead. Once dialed in, it's a nice way to get some miles in. I personally prefer the south side where there is a better variety of terrains. A loop using all of the sections is about 2 miles long. If you get lost, it'll be about 5 miles.

    The north loop is mostly palm fronds, sand, roots, and some semi-solid single-track. The only section that I truly enjoy is the speed ridge that runs parallel to Croton Rd. on the north east side.

    This is a public park, so expect to run into some horses, dog walkers, hikers, and families without helmets. It's a fun trail, but don't go balls-out fast.

    Great Local Trail! I have been meaning to check this trail out since it is closest to my home. I am new to mountain biking, but have already visited the top rated Florida trail, Santos, and have checked out two others within 50 miles of my house. I must say this trail was a lot of fun. Not marked super well, but really a great beginner trail with some good small elevation changes, obstacles, and twists and turns. If you're in Brevard County, do yourself a favor and check this trail out.

    This is a good beginner trail in a local park, with lakes, bathrooms, and pavilions. My 11 year old daughter really likes it here. It is pretty flat with some tight turns. A few logs to jump over and a feature with a skinny bridge over a downed tree.

    Good close to home workout. Park at soccer field and ride to berm behind it. The trail has some small elevation with some pump track sections and even a small table top. The sand is soft to fall in, so push yourself. The areas that are not following the fence have some rooty technical spots but no serious rock gardens. You can get sweaty and have fun here.

    I ride a lot of very good trails in North Carolina, and this is not one of them. We rode this trail while on vacation. It's poorly marked and even more poorly maintained. But I liked it! We had several first time riders and they had a great time. With some attention from a mountain biking club this trail could be a solid 4 star beginner trail. Watch out for the turtles!

    This trail is a maze with no markings except at the entry/exit points. Very overgrown and poorly maintenance. Caution RV park on site with people letting their dogs run loose.

    Average trail for the area.

    The trail is very sandy, so be prepared for that. There are some "jumps" and a few logs to roll over, but generally it's not technically interesting. If you want to get used to very light trail features, without painful falls, it's probably a good place to practice.

    Also, be warned, some parts of the trail are VERY overgrown right now (9/21/14) and a few trees have fallen and broken up the singletrack areas. We got smacked with branches a few times and several areas were impassable. There are several routes you can take and we found one that wasn't overgrown, I will try to map it next time.

    Lastly, as another user warned, be conscious of where you are and bring a compass or phone with you, navigation can be tricky if you lose your location and it's easy to get lost in the maze of bushes. If you find yourself lost, the best bet is to find one of the horse trails and ride it until you get near the entrance. Bring water, it's Florida.

    Had not been on the trail in some time(fires out there years ago) went back out there with some guys from one of the LBS's and I must say. Once you fine the right trail flow it is a lot of fun for what it is. Its not santos by any means but its also 20mins from my house vs 2 hours. There are some tricky parts not super hard and a few fun little jumps all and all I call this a fun close to home trail.
    The local shop now meets up inside the park by the bathrooms on the east side of the park at 630 on thursdays. hope to ride there again soon. also hope to have the right sized bike soon as well, have fun and ride

    This is an OK single track. It's fairly short so you'll want to run it a few times. The trails are not very well marked so they can be extremely hard to follow unless you get to know the area. The trails are located in Wickham Park in Brevard County (2500 Parkway Drive Melbourne, FL 32935). This place can get pretty sandy in areas. Nothing to get excited about but an OK ride on the Space Coast. Wickham Park also has camping spots. I've attached a trail map and map of wickham park to this trail that shows the trails and parking areas.

    Went for a ride through the Whicham trails this morning with the dog and found a few trails on the south side of the soccer field road. I havent explored this side too much but found some faster trails that went in and out of tall grass and woods. No sugar sand to be found just grass trails, black dirt and some roots. The dog lost her energy before I did so it was only a 30 minute ride but I will be making it out there a few times a week.
    Nothing technical just a fun easy ride.

    The north side of the road has some fun trails as well but only if you make sure to stay in the wooded areas, or else its all sugar sand fire roads.* Review edited 7/28/2010

    Great for a weekend ride with the family. Pack a lunch and trail ride all day. Nothing too outrageous, just a lot of technical twists and turns and some amateur jumps. Literally a ride in the park (Whickham park that is). Go riding, swimming at the lake, and have a pick nick.

    I am an Ohio biker who traveled to Florida to visit relatives in Palm Bay in the beginning of April. Since I feel the craving for mountain biking any time it is warm nice weather, I had to check out any possibility for some mountain biking in this almost tropical climate. Well, I stopped at the ranger's station for directions, and still had to go around the entire loop before finally finding the trail. The signage ends at the trailheads. I am shocked I wasn't lost longer than I was. I even hit a dead end at a sewer or something at one point. Very few hills, too. However, it feels kind of like riding through a tropical forest, so that definitely gives it style points. Despite my hope for something a little more hilly, it still quenched my craving for a little bit of mountain biking after a long winter of no riding. Ok for my causes, but hey! it's still biking, and it was sufficient for my purposes. It would have a 2, but those style points gives it a decent 3 in my book. Good enougth that I will go back when I visit again.

    These trails are pretty fun and scenic also. I am a beginner in the MTB world, so I had a good time. Still looking around for more trails.
