Description

This is my favorite Florida trail by quite a margin. It has a great mix of fast, flowing sections with very technical, rocky features strewn in to keep any rider on his/her toes. This trail also features wood berms, skinnies and the Corkscrew, which has to be the biggest man-made MTB feature in the state.

Due to the size of the features, you'll only want to head this direction after honing your riding skills.

Great skinny that's wide but higher off the ground that transitions nicely to a 2-3 foot drop of the rock feature. Easy enough to do on the hardtail, but still fun and challenging!

Awesome wood rollers. There are three different ones. The biggest one is fun but use caution not to go too fast... One unique feature I haven't really seen at any other trail system!!!!!
