Need to Know
Fee of $2 per rider. Pay at the self-service station before you get to parking.
Trailhead is difficult to locate. Park in front of a bathroom that will be on your left after the pay station. The trailhead is to the left of the bathroom, to the left of a picnic pavilion, downhill towards a lake.
The trailhead is marked by a sign with a couple of benches next to it (see photo). Several trails depart from here. See the photo for help locating the Dutch & Faye Tiemann mountain bike trail. Follow the blue markers, Many markers are no longer blue due to fire.
This fast singletrack rolls through typical Florida pine woods. It's a bit wider and less twisty than Crooked Creek Bike Trail
, but more scenic. This trail rides well in either direction. There are some swampy areas, older pines, and huge pinecones.
There is a very pretty picnic area along a river just off the trail. At about 3.6 miles going CCW, the trail turns left and follows a short stretch of dirt road. Turn right on the logging road and go about 100' to the picnic area.
