“A loop ride exploring all of Pepper Ranch, full of small ridges and wildlife.”— Rob Bagans
Must check in at the campground office to ride. No parking fee.
For current information on open dates please check the Collier County website.
The Yellow Loop, which is comprised of Panther Pass and Black Bear Berm, is flagged and rideable in its entirety for around five miles. There are currently two phases of future trail work being done on Go 4 Tortoise (Red Loop on the trailhead map) that heads to the south in addition to Kite Flight, which heads to the north (Blue Loop on the trailhead map).
Kite Flight follows a berm and is more technical with short ups and downs. There is a section that is open to ride that heads back to the dirt road, while the remaining portion of the loop is under construction.
The Go 4 Tortoise future loop trail will complete the 15 miles in the master plan.

The property also borders Lake Trafford, which is the largest, natural lake in Collier County and the location of many Native American settlements. Many artifacts have been discovered in this area that have been dated back to 550 A.D.
