Summary:
On our trip to Florida this year this was my favorite trail system. Much more to like here with the elevation gain and beautiful forest setting. I admit I'm from the NE where long climbs and technical trails are the norm. San Felesco is a welcome change to the boring trails of S Florida. I understand that most to most Floridians places like Santos and Alafia are top notch and I won't disagree that for Florida that is true. If you want somewhat of a challenge go to San Felesco, less people and more of a workout.

Recommended Route:
Tung Nut was great!

Summary:
Lots of fun rolling trails thru the oaks. Definitely recommend if you're in the central florida area. Good variety too. We had a nice long ride and a good time

Unfortunately, there are some signed "new" "hard" trails that are badly designed "fall-line" trails which is disappointing to see, and completely unnecessary because this place has some good elevation that would be better served as long stretched out contour trails. Especially since the soil type is sandy and rain is aplenty.

Summary:
I rode this trail for the first time this weekend, I ride Santos in Ocala at least twice a week, this was a much welcome change. Most of the reviews don't do justice, by far the best climbing you can have in Florida. The trail had an overall moderate difficulty, Tung Nut however is not for the beginning rider. The only downfall I found are some sections are in wide open grass fields, and some would complain the trails are slick. (Also cost is 4 dollars per car)

Recommended Route:
I-75 to Exit 399, south (make a left at the light) to progress (a right) fallow progress till the end.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Santos Trail head and all of its joining trail heads. Ocala, FL

Summary:
Even though this is one of my favorite trails, is is not a place that I would travel 2 hours to get to JUST to ride the trail, but it IS a place I always ride when I know I am going to be in the area and can bring my bike with me. Most of the trail is single track that is fast with only a few places that are sandy. It DOES have areas that can be underwater during the rainy season...I usually stay away during the rainy summer months. Most of the trails are not especially technical, however it would not be a place I would ride if I were just starting to trail ride. Very popular on the weekends...make sure to watch out for other riders. Trail maps are not always available on site. A good idea to download a map before coming. I appreciate the fact the the state park service has separated horse trails from bike trails...I almost always stay away from places where bikes and horses share the trail. Great spot to ride if you are in the Gainesville area or if you have an hour or two to waste after riding Santos.

Recommended Route:
Take I75 to US 441 (Exit 399/Old Exit 78) and drive south 2.8 miles. Turn right into a research park (Progress Blvd). Drive 0.7 miles to the park entrance. (Continue past the end of the pavement and onto the dirt road)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Santos Trailhead - Bellview, Florida
