Intermediate singletrack built by Suwannee Bike Association, lots of fun!! Tight in some areas,with lots of great scenery at Gar Pond. Look out for spiders in the summer months.

Summary:
A fun trail. First part is flat but with some tight turns, the faster you go the more fun. Last part has some nice technical turns and drops. Total single track is five miles. There are various jeep roads going thru, not much fun and kind of sandy in spots.

Recommended Route:
Start from the parking lot and follow the blue blazes.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bridge to bridge. The city of White Springs has placed a sign at the entrance which now calls this the White Springs tract Adams Memorial Circle entrance.

Flat and fast, not much for technical except the last 1/2 mile stretch parallel to the road. Well maintained but overall kind of boring.
