West Delray Regional Park

Average Rating:    (3.2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 5

Half exposed with several ridges and small hills, half under a thick canopy. Obstacles suitable for intermediate riders with more planned.

Work first began on this trail during Nov 2009 so it's very rough. It's low ground right at the edge of the great Florida swamp which means it's under water after it rains. Go on a dry day and bring plenty of bug spray!

Summary:
This trail is convenient to my house in Delray, otherwise I might not go back. The section closest to the parking is pretty good. However, once you get back in the shrubs and trees the roots are pretty much unbearable. Most of the trees are invasive Brazilian Pepper. There is no reason this junk can't be hacked out a little more to get rid of overhanging dangerous shoulder and head hitting limbs or the multitude of roots. No momentum or flow can be maintained in the trees.

Recommended Route:
Follow trail counter clockwise. Avoid the outside loop on the west side of the park until that thing gets some work.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Quiet Waters, Markham Park

Summary:
As you drive past the park's gates, the official trail-head is on your left past the first stop sign (Ferdinand Cir.). Trail runs counter clockwise. The initial part you zig-zag in (sun) exposed single track with several short and steep shell-rock mounds. The first split you come to is along a ridge. If its dry, take the left, if its been raining a lot take the right. The fun begins as you enter the dense forest where there is practically no sun light making its way through and feels cool even on a hot day. I've been riding it during some very dry months and it holds up very well. In the woods there are log overs and tricky root sections. Nothing complicated but much more fun than riding over a series of gator-backs as commonly found in near trails. Since this is a short trail I highly recommend you make a right at the "1/2 mile loop" arrow. Pay attention for it because it creeps on you fast and that right turn isn't a worn-in path. The 1/2 mile loop section takes you along another ridge that is parallel a wide canal (on your left). Its about 1200ft of technical riding but I cleared it first time out - fun. You will then come to a wooden bridge (on right) that cuts through some covered marsh and merges you back into the regular trail. When you rejoin the trail it will be some stuff you've already done but its fun so no big deal. The trail ends like it began, zig-zagging along (sun) exposed single track.

Others have complained about mosquitoes. Honestly, if you don't stop its not a problem at all.

Since the trail short, do it several times. If I do all the extra sections over pipes & climb, it takes me about 24 minutes.

The trail is 3.5 miles if you take the "1/2 mile loop" section (how I ride it).
The trail is 2.7 miles if you DO NOT take the extra loop.

Bottom line:
I'll admit, after hearing how short this trail was I expecting (wanting?) to dislike it but was pleasantly surprised how much I liked riding it. Yes it one of the shortest trail I've ever ridden, but it makes up for it in other places. I can't say I'd recommend this trail if you were not local or in the area. But since the park has places to picnic, an R/C plane, Heli pad, R/C clay dirt track and fishing it might be fun for the whole family to spend half the day. F.O.R.C.E did a good job on this trail and look forward more.

Recommended Route:
Counter clockwise. Take the 1/2 mile loop for more technical stuff.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pinehurst is the only near by trail I can recommend.

Summary:
The trail still needs some TLC but was a good work out, It took 35 min to complete the trail. After some work it could be a good trail. I would go back just for convience compaired to driving to markham/olieta/pinehurst. I hope that FORCE contiunes to build up this trail.

Recommended Route:
Take Alantic ave west till you can go any further. Take right into park and enter trail at 2nd round a bout on left hand side of road.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham/Olieta/pinehurst/Amiela Airheart/Dyer park

Summary:
2.5 miles of singletrack with a fair amount of variety. The exposed areas of the trail are winding and have a handful of steep ridges and hills to keep things interesting. The forest section is somewhat straighter but has a number of fun log roll overs and a challenging obstacle created from old sewer pipes smoothed out with gravel.

Low sections are muddy and sap your momentum and make it difficult to maintain speed over some obstacles. Don't go after it rains because some sections will be entirely under water. The trail is very rough as it's new, but there's a ton of potential here.

Bring bug spray or the mosquitoes will carry you back to their den. Bring a cell phone in case you hurt yourself as this trail is not very well known yet.

Recommended Route:
First trailhead is at the second cul-de-sac on the left - over the rocks. Second trail head is left at the three way and on your left just at the huge mountain of gravel. Trails start on the right.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Locally - Pinehurst is more established and technically challenging. Dyer park has a nice perimeter trail but is lacking in mileage and variety. Quiet Waters has excellent variety and good obstacles but is very exposed to the sun and the large rocks on the path take some getting used to.

Farther away Markham Park and Oleta are worthy destinations.
