trail is great!!!! However, it is shared by mountain bikers and hikers. It is distracting and at times dangerous. If you are hoping to see any wildlife forget it. There should be designated days or something for different uses or designated trails.

We had a great 8mile run through the trails.. they have green, yellow and red trails red being most challenging ... we liked all of the bridges and obstacles and narrow trails ..great workout! Their were a few bikes but were considerate of runners! We are going back tomorrow love it! When you first start out you feel like is this it and it quickly gets fun fast!

Awesome mountain bike trail but not really good for foot traffic because it can be dangerous with bikes coming out of nowhere.

Great for hiking or trail running, give the bikes the right of way.

This was my first time on a mountain bike trail, it was spectacular, great views, plenty of shade. The only problem I had was somehow getting off the beginner trail and on to the advanced trail, that didn't work out to well for me but overall I had a great time! Will definitely be back.

Trails are good, I like to get a work out in durning the week when the trails are not busy. Some areas are washed out but not bad. Ridge riders do a great job maintaining and building trails. Keep improving, great option for riding when I don't want to go to boyette or Alafia.

It was my first time riding these trails, and I tried to get to get to every single section, but I'm not sure if I did. Overall, the trails are pretty well marked and fun to ride. The fingers offshoots are challenging but I enjoyed them very much. I will definitely return to ride these trails again.

I enjoyed the trails, nothing too impressive. Some of the trails were severely washed out, so I was disappointed with the trail quality. The ones that were in good shape were fun and twisty, but I couldn't see making the trip back out here. Sticking with Boyette.

Maybe we went on an off day or maybe we're just spoiled with how SWAMP maintains and organizes their trails, but we had a hard time following the flow of trails from one to the next. Very few were marked and lots of thick sand pits in between trails. Once we were able to find the trails...they were good. Technical and challenging...for an intermediate rider.

Excellent. They have trails for every level mountain biker. It's also fun for running too.
On Wednesday it's "Wacky Wednesday." You do the trails backwards.
