Description

This is easily one of the best trails at Alafia River State park and many would argue it is without a doubt the best. Consisting of an easy start followed by a very flowy section of ups and down before getting to the real fun.

After a quick clearing (most of the trail is well shaded) you reach The Red Dragon, which isn't red anymore, but is just as fun with its jumps and berms. After riding the pump-track-in-the-woods, you get to the first hard option; Derailed. This one will take it all out of you if you choose to not cut it out, featuring quick drops, up, down and around. It's fun, but not easy.

After that, you'll find a very nice table top jump that is easily session-able (and many do) following more berms and jumps on your way to an optional four-foot drop that isn't really rollable. The second hard option isn't that hard and isn't named. The last hard option is quick but very exciting and features a few tight turns, one of which doesn't leave any room for error (drop off on one side and a low hanging tree on the other).
