Red Rock Road MTB Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

8 miles of rolling singletrack through Blackwater River State Forest. The trail is a work in progress so there should be improvements and additions over the next couple of years. There is nothing very technical except for a few skinnies but some trails are easier to ride than others. Parking is down at Juniper Creek wich makes for a refreshing finish to a hot summer ride. There are no facilities for water so bring your own. There are also many miles of dirt roads throughout the forest along with excellent road rides from Milton.

Summary:
Recently Rode this trail on 9/22/12 and it was covered in Spider webs. Not sure if it got a lot of use this summer, and we've had a large amount of rain in the area despite the drought in the rest of the country. We entered the PORC trailhead which had not been maintained in a while. We couldn't go 30 feet without stopping for another Spider web. We left within 30 minutes of arrival and it was a shame because I've enjoyed the ride there the first two times I've been. I wanted to power forward and was even leading and taking all of the webs for the group, but my group didn't want to keep on the trail.

First ride on this trail was Dec'11 and Jun'12. Had a good time these first two times. Not really technical but taxing on the body due to how under developed the trail is. The Serpentine section is a decent cardio test. Definitely a good one to check out if you live in the NWF area but I would make a long drive to see this one. I would opt for UWF over this one but this is still a good one locally for a change of scenery.

Recommended Route:
I've ridden it both directions and I would recommend riding counter clockwise. Our thought the last time was to go clockwise and knock out the Serpentine section first because it is the most work on this trail. It was really hot in June'12 and we were spent by the time we finished this section. The first half going counter clockwise is a pretty lax and enjoyable ride leading up to the Serpentine and then you also have the option to bail on Serpentine and take a short cut trail. I wouldn't recommend bailing on Serpentine but just adding this point.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
UWF. I would also recommend a road trip to Tom Brown in Tallahassee, FL and Oak Mtn in Birmingham, AL. You could do this in a day from the Gulf Coast area if you get up early enough. Going to try Mobile, AL for the first time this coming weekend too.

Summary:
The first two trails, Lupine and Junebug are fairly easy, mostly flat or downhill with wide turns and a little mud. Porc Chop is more difficult with tighter turns and more up and down. The Bridge of Death has been removed but may be resurrected in the future. At the end of Porc Chop there is a shortcut out or you can press on for another 4 miles on the Serpentinas Trail. It's a combination of the other trails with wide sweeping turns or short tight turns. The whole network is a pretty good ride although it's not epic. It's a nice change from UWF in Pensacola and worth the trip if you happen to be passing through. It takes about an hour to ride. Overall the trails aren't very technical except for a few skinnies but they can be aerobic if you push the pace. it's a fun trail that will only get better.

Recommended Route:
Going right at the trailhead puts you on the easier trails first with more shortcuts out. Going left commits you to 4 miles of trail that's a little more technical.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
UWF in Pensacola, Chickasawbogue and USA in Mobile.

We've added another mile of trail from the parking area by the creek up to the old trail head. I'll add another star to the aerobic difficulty due to the long uphill singletrack.
