Robert K. on Redbug Trail
Diverse topography. Lots of roots. Tight and curvey. Some inclined areas, but mostly moderate elevations throughout. Overall, fun trail.
Well-marked trail through a beautiful patch of deciduous slope forest neighboring Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. Easy, but tracks across as much elevation change as North Florida can offer to keep it interesting. Several different loops maintained by the Florida Trail Association comprise this trail. I completed the roughly 2-mi. Coonbottom Loop on this trip but hope to return for a longer visit soon.
What a great trail, or rather group of trails. Phipps has a number of trails which interconnect. As long as you pay attention when you come to an intersection you should be fine though. I highly recommend the coon bottom loop for a nice hike to burn a couple hours (and calories). There are also mountain bike trails for those who like to ride.
Nicely done trails. Well blazed. These are numerous multipurpose trails that share and intersect with horse, bike and hiking. Maps reflect this and can be pretty confusing. It's easy to get a little lost because of so many choices. Not a lot of wildlife but I suspect this is because of all the activity from us Humans.
Beautiful. It's pretty surreal that you are in Tallahassee but feel so disconnected with the city at the same time. Only complaint (but it's a big one) I had is that they were cutting down trees around 50 feet from a part of the trail. Kind of a buzzkill when you get out there to get away from all that crud..

I wasn't that impressed. It had so many tree roots that I don't get the enjoyment of riding this one unless it is just the challenge of staying up, moving fast. Distracts from the scenery. Wouldn't even desire to walk this one. I got through it just fine however wasn't impressed.
