Need to Know

The start of Ridgeline is approximately five miles from the trailhead without any shorter route available. There's no water to be had either, but there is a nice rest area at the end which can be pretty crowded on a nice day.

Description

Usually closed during the Summer months due to the rain.
Unlike the natural terrain in Florida, this trail is an up and down roller coaster that takes all your courage to ride as fast as you can to ensure you can make it up the other side. It is mostly smooth and thus fast and flowy, but the extreme ups and downs are what makes it deserve its difficult rating.

This trail is almost completely shaded and there are no bailouts, which may be harder to walk than to ride. There are three extreme descents that are optional that divert from the main trail and quickly merge back in.

History & Background

Abandoned phosphate mine that was never restored and is now completely covered with a mature forest.
