A fun trail in the middle of a city.

Description

This is a short trail that runs along part of Soldier's Creek. It's in Longwood Fl but close enough to Sanford Fl. There's plenty of parking as it is part of the Soldier's Creek Park.

I've rated this trail green, but it's borderline blue since you're going up and down over roots and some rocks. That said, nothing is very extreme. There are a handful of manmade obstacles and bridges, mostly to cross over where the water runs into the creek, but some of them are fun. There are some uphill parts where they've laid what it seems like carpet, which helps with traction and the land (sand) sliding away.

Overall, this is a great trail to do a few laps on if you live in the city. Most major trails close to Orlando are significantly further from this one.

Also, there are other sections to this trail system that haven't been tracked yet. I'll be trying to post those soon.

Short and sweet. Was literally my first time on a trail on my new bike. A little harder than beginner I would say but you can go slow and be alright.

Short little loop trail with a bit of technical stuff. Not really great for a beginner

It's a rad loop trail that runs around a creek with small bridges and occasional "woop de dos" ( rolling humps ). 1.4mi — 0h 20m
