Summary:
"CRP" is broken up into three sections; all connected to one another, and all single track. (No fire trails, other than escape routes)
As soon as you take this trail for granted, it will come up and bite you if you are pushing hard enough.
In general, the ~13 mile course is a fun mixture of fast flats in the sun, a share of sudden climbs\descents, tight narrow turns through the thick trees and over the many roots; some rocks.

GREEN trail:
- Southern front section is 75% fast open field hard pack, with a sprinkling of rollers, berms and rocks. 25% is fun root inhabited, narrow through the trees, 9 or so quick\steep climbs\descents, and a small narrow bridge.
- Northern front section is 80% along a wooded 8-foot ridge, adjacent to a stream; subtle climbs, descents, and turns ... and narrow through the trees with more roots and some small stumps. ... The other 20% is same as Southern front section - fast and flat.

BLUE trail:
Hard pack, fast, flat, lengthy, plenty of switch backs. Mostly through tight trees, plenty of roots, but also plenty of open field trails\S-turns. Scattering of firmly planted rocks. 4 small narrow bridges 6" off ground. Very few logs.

BLACK trail (aka "Far East"):
Take all of the above, cram the best parts together, add much more difficult climbs\descents, along with off cambers.

Good SWFL course for all-comers.

Recommended Route:
Beginners: Counter clockwise.
Advanced: Clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None.

Summary:
10 miles of singletrack that is well maintained by the Mudcutters Bike Club and located 25 minutes or so outside of Ft Myers. Some corners are a bit sandy. The Far East, Nick Extension, and the three short climbs and descents on Light Bulb are the funnest part of the trail. The rest is flat and the only decent place to ride near here.

Recommended Route:
Direction switches every month and either way is fine.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
North Port, however I have yet to ride there.

Summary:
Single track, mostly sandy. Transitions between open fields to woods. Nothing too technical except far east will present beginners with good practice. The Mud Cutters club does a great job of maintaining and improving this trail and it hosts cross country run events as well. It a nice afternoon ride in short distance to Ft Myers-Naples area.

Recommended Route:
Either way.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None are close by.

Summary:
Hard pack, rooted, and sandy single track. The trail winds through a sunny field and along the tree line into the deeper woods at the back of the trail.

There is nothing technical about this trail. There are a couple bridges, but they are pretty wide. There are no log crossings or other obstacles other than short steep climbs followed by short steep descents.

Recommended Route:
The main trail rides well in both directions. However, Far East rides the best counter clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nothing else in the immediate area.
