Pine Log State Forest

Average Rating:    (3.17 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

One of the few trails in Bay County, the two Pine Log trails offer enjoyable riding for a wide range of skill levels. The predominantly singletrack trail travels through Florida pines at a moderate pace. The shorter 1.5-mile trail (red) is far rougher than the 4-mile trail (blue). Although mildly technical phases are interspersed throughout the trails, it is still quite easy to ride. The 4-mile track is far smoother and much faster. Some large logs have been covered in sand, making for nice jumps. Some areas of the track are under new renovation and are not very ridable, especially in damp conditions. Watch out for road crossing! Some drivers seem think they are in a drag race!

Summary:
trails are fast and fun, lots of twist and turns. there are a few fallen pine tree obstacles that have been made into jumps, so that adds a little excitement.

Recommended Route:
best to park at crooked creek parking lot and go north on 79 for 1 mi and take left on enviromental and proceed to trail.2 reasons: the dutchman trail is fairly short, like 5 or so miles and they charge you to park at pine long whereas crooked creek is free!! but that's just me, i usually warm up at pine long, then goto crooked creek and ride it as fast as i can!!!!

Summary:
I consider myself to be an enthusiastic beginner/intermediate who can hold my own. There are two trails here. A short one, and a longer one. It's a good place to ride if you are beginner/intermediate and you want to get on your bike and stay on. It's mainly single track with trees and palmettos lining the trail, which makes things interesting. There are quite a few small fallen pine trees in the paths, most of which I was able to climb over by pulling up on my front tire without ever having to get off my bike. In the summer time it's hot, so plan for that. It's mostly wooded so you don't get a lot of direct sunlight but the trees are thin enough to let plenty of heat through. If you're a daredevil looking for your next big stunt, you might be bored here.

Recommended Route:
Either one, depending on how long of a ride you want to take.

Summary:
Well this trail used to be pretty fun... until they decided they needed to log large portions of pine log state forest. Now the trail is pretty much intermittently fun... inbetween large sections of clear cut land.

Summary:
The trail is a good trail, but only if you ride it both way. There are acually 2 different trails. One is about 1/5 miles south of Pinelog called Crooked Creek, it is slightly more advanced, but still easy enought to ride. It only get difficult when stupid little kids take down the markings and signs!!! But its fun to ride on weekends and has a nice view.

Recommended Route:
Same as Decribed

Crooked Creed, Pine Log, Tyndall AFB Trail, Navy Base Trail, Sunny Hills, Hwy 77 Trails

Summary:
I have family in the area and decided to give it a try. This was a very easy trail. Not very technical, but it was fast and FLAT. There are maps at the trail head. If you're there - ride it. If you're not close don't bother!!

Recommended Route:
Same as descrbed

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go north on 79 about a half mile to the camp ground. There is a better trail that's marked as a hiking trail. It's got some slow elevation changes and a few good obsticles. It is better than the bike trail, but not as long.
