Consits of several types of terrain. From the challenging ridges that peak between two phosphate pits to the singletrack trails that wind through the forest. This trail has many challenges for the expert rider. This trail is riden by many people on Monday mornings. This trail is also by invitation only.

Summary:
Awesome private trail. I was slightly dissapointed after reading the reviews and then riding it, I was expecting it to be more technical. The difficulty of the trail doesn't really come from it being overly technical, but from the insane amount of climbs. It was rather hot when we rode it though, so that didn't help. This is the most AEROBIC trail I have riden in FL, the climbs are like Gatorback times 10.

Summary:
Cotton's trail is back! After the devestation of hurricane Charley it looked like a giant woodpile. Alot of hard work by Jimmy and his friends have reclaimed 6 or so miles of the most intense riding in FL! Narrow ridges (think the fingers at LHP or Carter Rd) in abundance, tough technical climbs, switchback climbs, off-camber, rocks, roots, steep drops, technical decents, you name it and it is there. Including a teeter-totter and a sliding bridge! This place is like combining the toughest sections of John Brown and Vortex, the old TOE, Carter Rd, and Moonscape and Gatorback into a 6 mile trail.

Recommended Route:
Only one route. Start with the Cottonmouth trail, and then to the Cowtrail side.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
LHP (aka Carter Rd), Alafia, Boyette are all great trails.
