Connects Tom Brown Park and Lafayette Heritage Park. Parallels to Piney-Z neighborhood.
Peaceful. Not crowded
Easy trails for hiking. Water for dog to cool in, watch for gators and snakes though.
Beautiful Trail with slightly hilly terrain. Wonderful sightseeing and great lake views.
Good trail. Well marked-wildlife. Great views as you approach Heritage Trail Park. Even better to cross between the lakes and go up to the railroad bridge crossover.
I parked my car at Tom Brown park and rode the Cadillac Trail (west and east sections). Once I got back to the parking lot I found another trail head to the Magnolia Trail, and I rode that one as well. Both trails are pretty well marked and a lot of fun. They are flowy in most areas with some more technical offshoots that are generally well marked as higher difficulty level sections. Overall, it's a great place to ride.
Awesome place to mountain bike. We started at Tom Brown Park. Take the Cadillac trail it's a blast all the way through and great scenery with places to stop and rest along the way.
My wife and I love this trail and area. we live about a block away and have a kayak we take out often. I have taken some of the coolest photos of gator out here. One of them was even on the Time Magazine website front page on Earth Day 2014. So much wildlife out here, and such a well maintained area...
This trail is locally referred to as "Tom Brown" or "Cadillac" trail. Probably the best in the area for difficulty. Munson trail is another top 5 star trail, but more of a speed trail. Tom Brown trail is also considerably longer than 7 miles as this app shows. It is extremely challenging! Prepare to fall. It is not for the novice or small children! Throughout the trail there will be man made obstacles making this trail one of the most challenging in the area. There are BMX style track sections, a pump circle, boardwalk style rider trails, wolly world, huge drops and climbs, etc... Also, Connects to the fern trail that is also listed nearby. This trails and Munson are well maintained by local riders. I will map the entire section out and post.
Beautiful mountain biking trail.
