“A fast, flowing XC trail that exemplifies riding in the forests of Central Florida.”
— Jason Lampitt
Check Ocala National Forest website
for hunting season dates and dress accordingly during hunting season.
Immediately NW of the town of Paisley, Florida, the trail runs between the Clearwater Lake Recreation Area at the south end and the Alexander Springs Recreation Area at the north end.
The trail is fast, flowing XC-style riding with the biggest challenge being short areas of sugar sand. The trails are all very well marked with a yellow diamond.
The change in Florida forest scenery from scrub pine fields to some very close quarters and dense forest keeps things interesting and exemplifies riding in the deep forest of Florida.
