Cholee Park

Average Rating:    (3.05 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 19

Fast with quite a bit of technical areas thrown in. Some decent small hills (12')that sneak up on you due to the woods and a narrow bridge thrown in for fun. Trail is very tight in some areas with dense woods and opens up in others. Gets real sandy in some areas when there is a lack of rain but it keeps the track from getting crowded and is still rideable. Trail is fairly well marked. There is an shellrock access road that the trail uses in several spots that can be used to make the loop shorter or longer depending on which section you like to ride. Watch for all the snakes, armadilloes, and occasional possum.

Summary:
Tons of sugar sand, no descents. This is the stereotypical flat land trail, ie the butt of the FL rider/trail jokes in the forums. No tech, just roots, palms, and sugar sand on flat land. There was one weak climb I coasted up, just to be disappointed on the way down; a first glace what appeared would be a small drop turned out to be ramped. Ending weakness with weak sauce..

The trail markers are a bit dated most the 'Red' arrows are easier than the other colors mostly blue. IMO these trails should have been marked green with the occasional blue route. No evidence the park is capable of reaching an advanced trail let alone claiming to have expert trails (red). No actual rating system in use or signs to tell you what trail you're getting on. At best this is a mundane beginner trail. There doesn't look to be much potential for more. Many switch backs I doubt there is enough room to expand into anything beyond flat land XC.

Recommended Route:
S on Pinehurst, W on Lake Worth, S on the Turnpike... I'd recommend hitting up a Broward or Dade Co. park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None

Summary:
Well it ain't perfect but it has alot of potential. If people spent a little time with it, it could rival some of the better parks in South Florida. It has plenty of space to add trail, please someone help this trail, if you have free wood and time be creative and have at it.

Recommended Route:
There are no clearly marked paths, someone tried and only a few signs remain.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markum, Oleda River.

Summary:
ORIGINAL TRAIL HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY CLOSED!!!! The original trail has been permanently closed to bikers and has been taken over for equestrian use only. A new trail has been opened up for mountain bikers that is about a mile east of the old one. The new trail is on the East side of Pinehurst Drive about a mile South of Forest Hill blvd. It's located next to Freedom Park in Greenacres. SEE THE REVIEWS FOR THE PINEHURST TRAIL FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

Recommended Route:
Gone to the horses.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Also see Jonathan Dickinson State Park (Jupiter area), Dyer Park (West Palm Beach), or Quiet Waters Park (Pompano).

Summary:
The new trail installed @ cholee is short and sweet. The trail is only 4 mi. long but tight turns and narrow single track wont allow you to speed through. I live close to the trail and im just thankful there is something decent to ride without driving forty miles to get there.The trails are well marked for beginners and advanced so this a good trail for just about anybody. Expert sections are also sectioned off and I gotta say the root sections are a good workout(slightly trickier than the root section @ JD.

Recommended Route:
start st the beginning and ride to the end.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The new trail is east from the old cholee entrance. You should go to okaheelee parking lot and ride your bike south on pinehurst and the entrance is on the left hand side.

Summary:
Sorry to say on my way into the entrance of Cholee park I was stopped by one of the contractors heading up construction work there. He stated that the park and trail will not open for at least two years. I was told to let everyone who rides here not to.I have no clue if there will be a park by that time. If anyone knows the outcome please let me Know.

Recommended Route:
Stated above.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pinehurst trail, Quiet Waters
