Great. Liked the vegetation, white sandy trail. Must bring CamelBack! Hot, Hot, hot!
Cool scenic overlook on Mt. Hobe
Nice trail... A few decent drops but very sandy! Trails are composed of three different levels (novice, intermediate & expert). Intermediate and expert trails beware...lots of sliding and skidding due to heavy sandy areas!!! Trails become demanding due to all the sand but it's a great challenge and rewarding down the slopes. Overall rating 3 out 5. Also, caution when riding thru some areas of the trail...lots of giant spider webs and spiders may obstruct your path Beware!
Gator Hole although a short run is sandwiched with Pametto roots that for the novice would be quite difficult. Adding in the sand factor you could be in a slow go. Half Pipe has some interesting elevation and of course more sand. But the bridges and dips are challenging which makes these two paths intermediate. I didn't get to ride much more other than ranger and out since it was getting dark and it was my first visit I will be back.
This is a great park for hiking around. I actually saw some river otters here as well as turkeys. I mountain biked here but it was just very average....lots of sand and no real drops to speak of that I found.
