This is the most fun and easy trail at Alafia River State Park. It is flat, very fast, shaded, and flowy. There are a few hard options that I never skip, but overall the club does a great job of keeping it easy and fast.
The biggest disappointment is the lack of an actual rock garden on the trail. There are a few short bridges and this is almost always where I see deer. The trail is two-way and fast, so look out for other riders.
Typically you'll use parts of this trail when you are riding the Easy Loop or if you are trying to include the intermediate option, Garden Ridge
, as part of your ride.
