Some of the most challenging off-road bicycling trails in Florida can be found at Alafia River State Park. Located on what was once a phosphate mining site, the unique topography of the reclaimed land offers some of Florida's most radical elevation changes. Alafia State Park is home to 17 miles of bike trails, ranging from beginner to advanced. Alafia also offers equestrians and hikers the opportunity to explore mixed hardwood forests, pine flatwoods and rolling hills with 20 miles of hiking and horse trails. The abundance of wildlife found along Alafia's trails will delight any bird-watcher or nature enthusiast. The south prong of the Alafia River and lakes scattered throughout the park provide ample opportunities for canoeing and fishing. The 6,260 acre park also offers picnic pavilions, a playground, horseshoe pit and volleyball court. For overnight stays, the park has a full-facility campground for both primitive and RV camping, as well as equestrian friendly campsites.

Beautiful hike but too many mountain bikes.

Not for hiking but cool hike. Just mountain biking

Better for mountain biking

Definitely not a hiking trail better for mountain biking.

Pretty hike, but so confusing. The big loop trail does not exist. It’s a combination of several marked trails in the park, but doesn’t follow them accurately. Sometimes it goes off, reverses, loops. If you want to spend the day staring at your phone, wondering where you are, this is the place.

Nice trails but you share most of them with bikes. Some trails are only for bikes. Many small trails crossed each other. Never sure where you are on the map.
Would return if we get a chance

Fun for hiking! It's good to know the rent bikes too, my wife and I can't wait to go back.

Barely anyone on the big loop on Saturday. Amazing landscape that keeps changing. Say a ton of animals including deer and baby armadillos. Trail is well marked. A lot of it is in the sun... sunscreen and tons of water is a must!!

These trails were so good. Beautiful view and a challenging course. Loved it

This was amazing. Best trails I've ever been too. And for only 5 bucks. You can't get better than this, it's definitely worth going

no gators this time, loads of fun

Good trails, a lot of variety. We saw a gator too which was a big plus. Perfect for biking but we went by foot. Only area that would need improvement is the signs to show where the different trails start. Entrance is 5 dollars per car:)

Not the best park for hiking and/or birding. This park is best for Mountain biking. Park employees are friendly and professionals.

Great location. Trails are a lot of fun. Trail marking could be better.

Trails are very well marked and there are many different lengths to choose from. Best I've been to in the area so far!

Really enjoyed running these trails. It was very busy this morning with mtn bikes but once I was on the trails I easily got lost looking for what was around the next bend.
