Wickham Park

Average Rating:    (2.84 of 5)

The trail is fun. Some changes in elevation, some sand, some dirt, some hard pack and some natural obstacles. I am looking for volunteers who live in the area to develope AND MAINTAIN these trails, I have obtained the Park Manager's permission and we need to keep in close contact with him as we work. No north shore type trail ideas. This is a public park and will be used by many. So we need to keep it at beginnner to intermediate levels. Call me at 321-799-6646. My name is Tom Seaman

Summary:
First time there today. The trails I went to were on east side of park, since there is not much around Brevard. I will be riding here a few times a week for sure. Nothing special , but beats the heck out of riding around my neighborhood. Going back this afternoon to look for more trails.

Recommended Route:
Unsure at this point.

Summary:
I have lived here in Melbourne all my life and ride these trails quite often for a decent workout. All these small network of single track bike trails at Wickham are for beginners or just a simple 1 hour or so workout using the network of tracks with some back tracking. Their is most definately no technical with this network of trails except some sugar sand here and their. NO jumps on the east side, except one small sugar sand hill overgrown with shrub and trees. All in all, not bad, just a good work out. Their are a few bridges, but mostly just a good run on the north end. The east side is great and has shade, but you have to share it with the occasional walkers (multi-use trail). Beware of dog c*** on the east trails, people hold no responsibility toward their animals at Wickham. I live here in Melbourne and this is the only place left to ride besides the "Hochi Min" at the Turkey Creek/Malabar Scrub Sanctuary since the Fort Pierce trails CLOSED. Bring your camel pack if you are riding in the summer, the dogs of the dog days of summer do bite hard out there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Alafia, Balm Boyette, Santos, "Hochi Min" at Turkey Creek, Enviromental & Little Econ (in Orlando/Oveido). There is few others, but nothing that spectacular or not worth the drive from Melbourne

Summary:
Pretty lame trail overall. Sandy and lots of palmetto brush makes it tough to have a good time on such an easy flat trail/sand pit. The trails go all over the place and just sort of meander here and there before ending in a patch of weeds or chain link fence. I understand that the weather and brush fires have screwed this place up some, but how could you ever think that this trail was worth the trouble to ride? If you live within 10 miles and want to get in the dirt I suppose this would be an ok break from the pavement. If you live 11 miles or more from this park, it is not worth it.

Recommended Route:
Just ride around until it is too hot or you get bored, (takes about 30 minutes). No real organized trail loop or markers. Couldn't find any of the jumps, hucks, or climbs mentioned in the other reviews.

Summary:
Hey my Trailmasters brothers! Remember the old days when we could barely wipe the smile off our faces riding the old trail. Come out and join the action going on at the South Shore (fruit trail). It will give a grin now, and the ear to ear smiles are coming, baby! We need some help with trail building from the experts. Thurdays @ 5-5:30 is the ride and trail building day. Meet @ the St. Joes church parking lot on Babcock just before the tillman canal. SEEE..YAA!!!
