Currently 7.5 miles of mostly singletrack which run for 2.5 miles in an Oak Hammock along the South Fork of the St. Lucie River, then winding for 5 miles around the property - between lakes: a flowing cross country ride in a nice natural setting. Miles are being added weekly.

Summary:
A fun ride in theFlorida scrubland, like how it takes you into some canopy covered woods and back out again. Can get a nice flow going with some palmetto roots to keep you in check. The ridge section was pleasant surprise and completely unexpected. Trail marking a bit confusing at first, quickly figured it out though there were a couple spots with multiple trails and no marking so we guessed at which on to take. Seems like the best place to ride for me within an hour of my house, so I will be visiting more. It did measure at 7.5 miles

Recommended Route:
The whole route

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None maybe Jonathan Dickenson when it's not so sandy

Summary:
First, let me preface this review that I am considering the fact that it is in South Florida. This is not North Carolina or Pennsylvania. That said, this trail is alot of fun. When I first rode it, I was surprised at the quality of the trails. Lots of twisty single-track and some challenging roots etc. It is also rather scenic as it twists it's way around two lakes. Navigation can be a challenge, but with more markers being added it has gotten much better.

Fun local ride, in a very nice park, I reccommend it.

Recommended Route:
Main loop is about 8-9 miles with lots of little areas you can detour or re-ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ft Pierce

Summary:
This trail has a little something for everybody. Technically, it is easy to moderate depending on the route...the official marked route has bypasses for must of the tricky parts which are mainly mazes of palmetto roots with very few elevation changes. If you are prize comfort, definitely take your suspension ride. The trail in general is fairly bumpy and twisty and gives a completely different experience depending on how fast you take it. The local club has worked on some alternate routes that are pretty exciting (especially the new 'ridges' area) that are definitely worth checking out. Between the great potential, beautiful scenery, friendly riders I gave it a 4 overall (the official trail is only a three).

Recommended Route:
There is only one official route...all the unofficial trails are unmarked. This is unfortunate because the official route bypasses some of the best parts of the trail and takes you through a long boring double track along I-95. Hopefully this will change soon. You will have a completely different experience depending on if you go with locals or not.

Summary:
I started riding this trail about two years ago. I must say that although this isn't a destination ride, but its a great after work ride or lunch ride. The land in the park includes a great river section, a technical prairie section (the 40), and a lakes area leading to a fast flowing "zig zag." Over the course of the last year or so, the trail has really started to mature and we are seeing a lot more people out at the park with bikes on their cars. Having been to NC, Utah, Colorado, even some of Florida's spectacular parks, Alafia and Santos, this is a ride the has its place. Its beginning to get fast, its groomed, and the club is doing what it can to keep it rideable in the soft months and the wet months. If you're in town, stop by, you might meet up with a couple of friendly riders at Halpat., the group and the people that ride there seem to be very friendly. Side note: it is easy to get lost and the trail is not very well marked, thats by design so far, and the natural curve that exists to get trail approval exists here. More reason to get into the club and help and write letters if necessary. Keep up the good work Airborne.

Summary:
After the park employee gave us directions on how to find the trailhead, my son and I found the trails to be: not very well marked, but kind of enjoyable once we found our way. They are all EASY trails, with only one good descent/ascent combo thru a drainage ditch; and then a bit of a challenge over an 'octopus' of a saw palmetto at MM2.9. Otherwise, it was just a good way to work up a sweat on our way back from Santos (awesome!!)

Recommended Route:
Start behind Pavilion #7, we wound up ending at gate on dirt road alongside I95. Don't know if that was the right way or not - as I said, not well marked trails. Altought in defense, it appears there has been some bulldozer work going on lately that might have screwed up miles of previous trails (????) We certainly did NOT see 7.5 miles of trails. We got in 3.5 miles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pinehurst, Dyer Road, Jonathan Dickinson

the trail can be a bit confusing because of all the dirt roads that the singletrack has to cross. the club that maintains it has put signs up on at least 7 miles of trail and theres probably another 3 miles of unmarked multi-use singltrack, not counting the hiking only trails. our goal is to continue to mark the trail and close gaps in the loop so its easier to follow, in the meantime if you would like someone to show you around we do group rides during the week and on weekends. you can go to the website www.airbornemtb.org or shoot me an email at pres@airbornemtb.org thanks, Nick D
