Between County Road 283 and the 395, the trail is closed, based on posted signs.

Description

This trail officially begins near Sea Pond Road, but the most common entrance point is the Blue Mountain Beach parking lot, where parking is available. From the Blue Mountain Beach parking lot, take the paved bike bath north along Florida Hwy 83 for about 1/8 mile to the trail sign indicating the trail entrance of the Point Washington Forest. From the trailhead, descend slightly to a wooden bridge over Red Fish Lake then after short incline the trail begins snaking through the pines.

You'll cross a few fire break roads but the trail is well marked with signs clearly visible attached to trees. There are a few wet marsh areas with bridges. The trail is well maintained by local riders.

You can continue on the trail for another 2.2 miles after crossing Highway 283 and 1.3 miles after crossing Highway 395. For its duration, the trail is fairly consistent, with some sandy areas, roots and switchbacks. You'll find that you need to cross highways several times over the course of this trail. At each crossing, there is a paved bike path that will allow for safe travel and also bail-out points that will return you to town.

There are several trailheads but most begin at the Satinwood road parking lot off 30-A. There is a $2.00 per person use fee. Maps are available at Big Daddy's Bike Shop in Blue Mountain Beach.

Heading into the woods.

Was surprised at how nice the bridges were.

Trail was much more enjoyable than I expected.  Rode it on a crappy beach cruiser that came with our rental.  Had a blast.

Flooded trail, and the bypass also. We drove back to the fire road and headed to the 30A

Keep an eye out for this marker on your way to the 395 Loops. You'll have to cross the road from the Longleaf Greenway Trail.

Nice trail. A few muddy spots. Trail is closed at 283 due to logging. Must go back the way you came. Bridge out on 30A if you wanted to ride it back.
