20th Ave Trails

Average Rating:    (1.71 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 17

While the road is rather loose sand, it does have nicely banked turns. The trail is moderately paced, with several VERY rooted areas, sharp turns and 40 deg.+ descents and climbs. Other than the Powerlines trail, this is the best I have seen in Gainesville. Speed up slightly and you might catch air of one of the humps.

Trail Directions
Take Archer or University Ave. to 34th St., take 20th St. (between Kash n Karry and the bank) west. At the second traffic light, just before the I-75 overpass, take a left into the dirt "parking area". Facing the trees, try following the dirt road on the left until you spot a suitable singletrack trail. Follow this around and it will loop, running parallel to I-75 and returning to the parking area.

Summary:
A lot has changed since the last review and I figured I would update it since I know people look here.

Trail starts off as a gravel/semi-paved road that is rocky and bumpy and has some potholes. The actual singletracks have good tree coverage but there are parts that has a lot of grass that almost cover the tracks. I have accidentally wandered off the trail before.

Very fast, nothing technically, and it loops around a couple of construction site and next to fences. Near the back side of the apartments it would not be rare to find loose dirt caused by bulldozers, which also leads to some short, sharp climbs and descents. There are also a couple of crossing paths and it could get confusing.

Basically short and fast.

There are a lot, go ask about it as Mr. Goodbike on 13th Ave. They are the most knowledgeable mtbrs in the area.

Summary:
It's not really a trail at all. More of an ATV park and a place to 4 wheel. Plenty of deep mud and flexing action if you're into Jeepin'. But as for mountain bikes, this isn't even worth your time.

Recommended Route:
This trail sux

Summary:
I just rode these trails for the first time. They apparently are most popular with ATVs and people who dump trash. Nothing challenging, but you might get lost in the criss-crossing trails. The miscellaneous household junk and trash lining the paths ruined what might have at least been a pretty ride.

Summary:
Ok I go on a trip this will be fun I see all the nice reviews for Florida. Why why do you all do this if it sucks just say it sucks You have nothing to ride on there is more in Kansas Every one that put in a good review for any of the Florida must be very old so old that thay are using a walker out on the trail That is the only way I can see this to be any thing more than some place to let your dog do his thing the trails are so bad my dog would not even sh_t on them. I give all of Florida a -10 star

Recommended Route:
Any way out of Florida you can find

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nothing in Florida
