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.

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!

Excellent trail however the maps, signs, and blazes were a bit confusing.

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.
