Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

Trail can be sandy in places after dry spells. There are also some intermittent creeks running through the trails after heavy rains. Expect hikers, runners, and equestrians as they regularly use these trails as well.

Description [Suggest Changes]

To get to the trailhead, go to Pate Road which is off 10-mile Road. Note this is a private road, so be sure not to drive past the parking area, which is unpaved and is located on the righthand side before descending the hill.

These trails have small hills, can be rooty, and have a couple of sandy spots. For the most part, the trail is easy to intermediate but there are a couple of spots which could be considered difficult in the Blue Loop.

To get more information, be sure to visit the Pensacola Off-Road Cyclist website atporc.org.

History & Background [Suggest Changes]

Some of the elevation of the trails was created by an old log flume in the 1800s. Many of the trails are old dirt roads from the 40's and 50's, especially on the Games side. Many are also old motocross/ATV trails from the 80's and 90's. Once the property was given to UWF in 2000, motorized vehicles were no longer allowed.

Totally agree with your assessment. Great place for beginners to learn the fundamentals of mountain biking and intermediate to advanced riders to work on their skills. Also, to give these trails some credit, I dialed in my cornering technique on these trails. I'm convinced that if you can keep your front tire from washing out on the corners at UWF, you will be able to rip any corner anywhere else at mach Jesus. Oct 25, 2015
There is a little bit of everything here. I found the orange trail fun and a good workout if you try to keep up your speed. The yellow trail was more challenging with some wood features and steep drop ins. Apr 29, 2017
