“An easy and straight loop of doubletrack that can be used to shortcut Alafia.
— Ben Drawbaugh
One of the great things about Alafia River State Park is that you are never that far from the trailhead, thanks to this multi-use loop. You can use this to quickly get to just about any trail in the park and skip the ones above or below your skill level -- or just as a warm up. It is also a great way to meet back up with others in your party who aren't at the same level as you. You'll, of course, find horses and hikers here, but it's wide enough to manage. It is mostly exposed to the sun and not too sandy or muddy.
