Great IMBA/SORBA endorsed trail that has options for various skill levels and includes a series of BMX-like hills at one end.

The hiking (red) trail is only 1.25 miles one way. It's definitely not a hike, more of a trail to stroll by on. Very easy!
It is accompanied by a part elevated (boardwalk) trail that leads to the beach, which was beautiful for the dogs to play on.
The "Hard" difficulty level is for the mountain bike trails. Which are usually occupied by bikers, so we haven't gotten a chance to hike them.
We, instead, decided to walk all the way to Washington Oaks Gardens SP, via the beach, and enjoyed running about and photographing the coquina rocks.

Good trail for a ride, be careful with the black diamond areas they will hurt you. Some of the drops had rounded out and you will go over the bars and the homemade bridges are very slippery.
5 mile round trip get to know it before you put the hammer down lol!

Very fun trail. I rode it on a hybrid so it was pretty tricky to get through but that's all I had to work with. Lots of technical stuff but almost all if them are avoidable if you want. Worth the trip.

Great for both moderate and expert riders. Lots of cutbacks and palmetto root obstacles. Brand new markers and clear trail directions.
