Summary:
Still really the only trail in the area. Sandy at times but does drain well and can be ridden during and after rain without trail damage. Some short hills nothing too technical. Trails are fast and mostly fast flowing. There are two separate sides to this system; one directly off of ranger camp road and the other that can be reached from this side or a little up lewis turner on the same side is the timber lake rec area entrance. Both are nice for the area and total around 20 miles.

Recommended Route:
Any, the best way is to get a little lost, most trails interconnect so getting out is not too difficult . There are no maps that I have found in the local area. When I started I would ask locals which route to take and they would let me tag along. Ask someone, you may end up some new friends.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Milton, Santa Rosa beach, Pensacola

Summary:
I just started riding, and have logged 75 miles on Timberlake. There are MULTIPLE trails. The East side Spooky Hollow and Stinky Crossing do not exist anymore, so in order to get from one side of the map to the other you have to go on Gator Alley. The biggest downfall of these trails, they are POORLY marked. Bring the printed map and good luck. I've contacted Jackson Guard to help with remarking, but have had NO SUCH luck.

Recommended Route:
Snake Charmer, the West side of Spooky Creek to Skinny Dip adds for a great loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All the East side of the trails are great. Carbo will put you through a great workout!

Summary:
Great trails! It's small enough area to not get lost too bad. Very fun for a beginner (me) and has some other areas that are pretty hard. I haven't been on all the trails yet. Here is GOOD map of the Timberlake area. The link is at the end of the review. I'm not scared of regular sized spiders but those ones on the trail are friggin huge! I would have to clear a trail of all the spiders first then ride it again at full speed. haha
