HikingMuddy

Good trail to start off with however towards the water it is all mud. We had to walk our bikes through 4” of water and thick, sticky mud. We saw some wild pigs and some tracks that looked like panther tracks. Once we got to the water it was fantastic. Need new shoes though.

This trail is perfect for mountain bikes. It have different levels for it. not so much for hikers. For hikers it's just a huge flat road. you are not hiking in a nature trail. If you like trail running, it's for you.

Mountain bikingGreat!

Nice trail to ride. Last 1/4 mile impassable due to water. Did 6.7 miles round trip. Hilight was observing a wild sow boar with eight or more possibly little ones. We are watched for five minutes before she realized we were there. Not a ride i would go out of the way to do again but nevertheless worthwhile to see large pines and oaks on way in

Nice day for a hike! Trail is still wet at 3.2 miles with water across the trail. Needs some boards or trail maintenance to go over this spot so you can access the rest of the trail. Enjoyed the fresh cool air!

Flat easy walk with kids and dog on leash. Some spots were very wet because it had rained the day before. Only negative was the snakes- several water moccasins spotted right next to the trail. Definitely keep your eyes peeled while you venture out and beware if you or your pets and kids veer off the main beaten pathway. And don’t forget to apply bug spray before you go!!

Mountain bikingGreat!

Did the single-back mountain bike trial and it was amazing. 4 miles of trail with multiple wooden features including a whale tail and skinny and fat wooden bridges. Would say skill level is easy to intermediate. Great time and a lot of fun. Only complaint is there was 2 fallen trees in the trail but that's hard to control. Will be going back soon.

Trail was too muddy to make it through and so had to backtrack about 2 miles

Nice if you’re looking for something easy and in nature. Not much traffic early weekday mornings. Unfortunately I found two ticks on my dog.

Really beautiful until we were about 200 yards from the parking lot and got blocked by a snake that was either an Eastern Diamondback rattle or a water moccasin. saw a few other small snakes throughout

Flat and open. Great training trail. Wet muddy areas about Mile 3. No bugs today. Light traffic. Great place to stretch your legs!

Mountain bikingGreat!

Just an update. I was out there Monday, 10/19. I rode the blue trail and there were no bugs or yellow flies. I Almost ran over a black snake sunbathing on the trail, but that was it. The yellow flies were gone. Nice trail. I think Hanna Park is more fun to ride, but Nocatee is closer.

Nice trail but won’t go back until yellow flies are gone. They were very aggressive. Ended up with over 30 bites.

Seems like a nice trail for hiking and biking. Wasn't able to get past half a mile due to yellow flies. 40% deet spray was a joke to the flies. Will come back in the winter.

Yellow files are vicious!!! If you decide to walk this trail bring Off Deep Woods insect repellent.
