It was fun...until we got lost. The maps aren’t worth a crap and somehow we ended up on the horse trail. Plenty of bugs to go around. I was miserable by the time we got back but BOY did we get a work out. Very adventurous and a good place to unwind in nature if you’re good at navigating with crappy maps.

Awesome trails!!!

Best mountain biking you can find in FL. Variety of single tracks for any skill levels all the way to double Black trails.

Great park to run in. Nice large paved trail.

This is a short little trail that is good for a quick day hike to keep yourself in shape if you don't have time to hike a regular trail. It's one mile trail.

Awesome trails! Just gotta make sure e you stay on trail. Watch for the colored tees to make sure you’re on trail and you’ll be fine!!! One of my favs for sure!

My favorite mtn bike trail around, especially because you can find yourself doing a series of trails, and choose to either start and finish each at the trailhead, or do one loooong trail hike.

I like the trailhead w new restrooms, covered picnic tables and bike wash. This allows me to take a break and relax a bit before tackling the next trail.

Obviously a copy/paste description error. Only accurate statement is that this trail is inside the Alafia River State Park. Excellent trail for advanced riders. MTB purpose built single track.

The trails do not match the map. Definitely got turned around more than once. Overall fun day but very confusing in terms of finding where you are on the map.

This place was awesome!!! Loved the off beaten path.

Call or visit the website for the hours. It’s summer and they’re open till 730. Which is nice. They’re actually no bugs right now. I did the phosphate mine trail twice and it is steep. Keep a lookout on the red signs on the trees. I took a couple wrong turns but got back on the path. The River Loop, Trail was interesting but I never could stay on the red trail at one point I was on the bike trail I’m pretty sure. It was interesting there is over a dozen car is in the parking lot. But I never saw anyone on the trail except for one other person and that was another walker with the dog I wonder where they all were On the phosphate mine trail you’ll really enjoy all of the Firemans or simply marvelous.

Alafia River State Park is absolutely beautiful. the Old Agrico hiking trail is exactly the type of trail I've been looking for in Florida, there's a lot of hills due it's history of being an old phosphate mine. The only thing I'd advise, is if you're there only to hike, ask for a map of the bike trails also. The trails for the bikers aren't labeled that well, and if you find yourself lost in a slew of them, your hiking trail map isn't going to help you much. Very wonderful park. I'll definitely be back soon.

Love this bike trail!!! Campground was nice and clean.

Awesome trails!!! Loved it!!!

Been riding out here for about three years now, whenever possible with a horseback trail riding group. Very good trails and the remnant of old spoil mounds and mined out areas has created some nice gently rolling hills which makes riding even more interesting. Of course this park has its share of exotic vegetation which needs to be removed if possible or at least kept in check. But overall a fine bunch of trails. Lots of open stretches so be prepared if riding in the summer. And always be alert for mountain bikers out here on separate but intersecting trails.

Definitely not a hiking trail better for mountain biking.

Pretty hike, but so confusing. The big loop trail does not exist. It’s a combination of several marked trails in the park, but doesn’t follow them accurately. Sometimes it goes off, reverses, loops. If you want to spend the day staring at your phone, wondering where you are, this is the place.

Nice trails but you share most of them with bikes. Some trails are only for bikes. Many small trails crossed each other. Never sure where you are on the map.
Would return if we get a chance

Really nice trail, well maintained, and exactly what I'd expect from a short paved trail.

Barely anyone on the big loop on Saturday. Amazing landscape that keeps changing. Say a ton of animals including deer and baby armadillos. Trail is well marked. A lot of it is in the sun... sunscreen and tons of water is a must!!

This was amazing. Best trails I've ever been too. And for only 5 bucks. You can't get better than this, it's definitely worth going

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.
