Description

Lake Talquin State Forest's 9.3-mile W.D. Lines Trail System is for hiking and off-road biking and has two loops: Talquin Loop (blue) and Longleaf Loop (orange). Where the two trails overlap, the trail is marked blue.

The off-road bicycle trail takes the cyclist through a variety of terrain, including pine flatwoods and sandhill communities on the northern portion of the trail, grading down to hardwood and floodplain forests along the shoreline of Lake Talquin.

Moderate obstacles such as low clearances, logs, quick turns, bridges, boardwalks, and tight areas between trees are intended to enhance the ride. Beginners should maintain slower speeds for easier navigation of these obstacles.

Features: Off-road biking, Camping, Hiking, and No Hunting.

Facilities: Hike-in primitive group camp. Located about 2 miles from the trailhead. No electric or water. For information and reservations, visit ReserveAmerica.com or call 1-877-879-3859. Picnic pavilion, Restroom, Charcoal grill.

Rode this on April 30th and didn't see another human while I was riding. At times it was hard to tell if I was still on the trail with all the leaves
