Summary:
After reading the reviews, I find it hard to rate this park as good or bad, it's surely good for the beginner but for the seasoned cyclist they may find it a bit boring. We found it just perfect coming off a long hiatus from biking. Nothing too challenging here, there's really 2 areas to bike in, some smaller loops near the entrance and also one larger loop that goes around a few lakes, the campgrond, etc. We found the latter the better of the two liking the "twister" section the best because it was smooth and allowed more speed. If you like really technical rock gardens or very rooty rides this park isn't for you but if you want a work out or a ride that the entire family can enjoy near Jax it's a great park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Clinch, nicer camping area and a bit more challenging of a trail, more elevation deviations.

look for a bit more of a challenge on the wellness trail.it runs parallel with the ocean along the dunes from dolphin plaza to the south corner of the park.

Summary:
Excellent maritime forest ride. Lots of tight windy trail with a few small technical sections and a few small climbs. Good for a nice taste of easy-intermediate xc. Some roots can be intimidating, but they are sparse in their placement on the trail.

Summary:
Great trails for all different skill levels, very scenic. Only bad parts are the roots and the spider webs. If you stay on the main loop around the lake it is mostly beginner and intermediate, but there are many interior trails that are unmarked and more challenging. There is a fun trick section located near the entrance.

Recommended Route:
Start at Twister and explore, but watch out for spider webs and soft sandy spots!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ft Clinch, Grahm Swamp, and Guana (for scenery)

Summary:
It's great to have an area with trails that are fun to ride, safe, somewhat challenging and maintained. The difficulty level is directly proportional to your speed. Families ride slower and seem to have fun. More serious riders travel faster and feel challenged. Remember: No mud + no blood = no fun.

Recommended Route:
I seem to always start with a warm-up on Twister, then follow all 6 trails around the back to Log Jam; then, 3 trails on the front, ending with Misery. Then we cross the street and do the Dead Dog, Long Trail, Drew's Trail, etc.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fort Clinch. The woods at Kernan & Beach.

Summary:
This was the first time I have ever ridden trails before. I didn't really know what to expect. The first trail that we rode was called misery. It had lots of roots and a good many hills. Me and my brother in law rode it the wrong way. Duh!!! It just took a few people coming at us to figure out we were going the wrong way. We then rode the twister. This is a really fast trail, not many roots, lots of twist and turns. The third trail we rode was the dead dog trail. This was alot tougher trail. I was wore completely out half way through. This trail was really tough some really big roots to jump over.

We rode about 5.5 miles in less than two hours and my muscles are really starting to hurt now.

For my first trail ride it was really fun. Can't wait to go back.

Recommended Route:
The twister for some fast fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not sure. Hannah park is the only place that I have rode so far.
