Summary:
Its a great trail under trees. So it should not be to hot in the summer. It has an easy path. The harder path is not to hard for the most part until you get to the end of it. If any part is too hard it is easy to bypass. There are a few scary parts, but overall the trail is easy, but challenging enough to keep your blood pumping. This is one of the best marked trails I have seen. The soil is tight packed. Some areas have a lot of roots, but I like roots as it presents a workout.

I tried to post pictures of the entrance and some trail markers, but this site limits photos to only 400kb.

To find parking go down the street almost to the end turn right. The actual trailhead is at the corner of Mala Combra and A1A. But the main path from where the parking is will lead you right to it. Its also a fun little path with a few raise wood structures.

This address is closer but not spot on. 79 Mala Compra Rd, Palm Coast, FL 32137
Another person posted some pictures of the place at this address below.

Also there is a bike shop, and some good places to eat nearby.

Recommended Route:
just follow the blue paint dots all over, it will keep you ont he right path. Plenty of black diamond opportunities. They all lead you right back to the blue path.

Summary:
This trail has a good long section that is flat, twisty and rooty which makes for a great warm-up before taking the optional Cloud Nine black diamond section, which has some technical sections enough to make your heart race (at least mine). Beginners can skip Cloud Nine and stay on the blue trail and you get a nice cool down back to the trail head. Very shaded which is great for those hot days when you want to avoid the sun.

Summary:
I ride at night and it is great that this trail is well marked. There are signs for intermediate, black diamond, and for occasional obstacles. The beginning is mostly switchbacks with obstacles. Then there is fast singletrack through the hammock. Finally some more technical. There are side routes for the obstacles too. I rode after a rain when the trail was firm and I flew through the hammock. I can't wait to go back.

Recommended Route:
I like a fast ride so I rode the intermediate trail.

Summary:
great job guys - really appreciated the single & double diamond warnings. It helps to be prepared for the technical sections. Once we found the trail we were loving it. Someone in the review section recommended parking at Washington Park - Don't! It will cost you $5 and put you about 3 miles south. Bing boat ramp is literally on the west side of A1A and Mala is on the east. So save time & money and park at Bing.
Plan on riding the trail twice - you will love it.

Summary:
Great warm up trail for Graham Swamp. Something for everyone, beginners and those who have been riding for sometime.

The trail crew has done a great job developing the trail by building ramps, jumps and roll overs while at the same time protecting the environment.

I like the fact that a group of varied skill levels can ride together, split up for the more dificult sections and re-connect later down the trail.

Great Ride
