Unknown, other than several of the roads lead off of the City of Jacksonville property.

Overview

This area was once the NAS Cecil Field aircraft armament storage site, known as Yellow Water. It is bordered by Normandy Blvd., New World Avenue and I-10, to the north.

The trailhead is located between the Cecil Equestrian and Cecil Aquatic centers. The area includes a network of old asphalt and gravel and/or dirt fire roads. There are no technical features that I have found yet. This is a good place for gravel-grinding. It does have potential for future single-tracks, dependent upon City of Jacksonville approval.

Need to Know

Bring hydration, bug spray. There is an area on the northeast side that is used by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) for roadway training. Although the gates to this area are open, No Trespassing signs are posted.

Description

Cecil has the potential for a decent "gravel" style race if the City of Jacksonville would approve. It also has the potential for a singletrack trail on the eastern side of the park area.

Currently, it is a pretty decent place for beginner to learn off-road cycling and then progress onward towards, Losco Park, Tillie Fowler, Nocatee, Hanna Park, Mala Compra, Graham Swamp, etc.

Note that my track is the one in GREEN and starts at the Center trailhead and works northward.
