Summary:
Willie Brown's Trail is yet another shady tree country road that is a blink of an eye loop. Good for a quick dog walk to take care of business. There are some hiking trails there also that are a really fun little short ride though. Just ignore the No Biking signs and the extra special Hikers who might remind you that you are trail pouching and that it's against the law. It's only 2 miles maybe in and out. Very short.

Recommended Route:
Park at Spanish Pond Trail.Around the corner across from the Timucuan Preserve.

Summary:
Sounds to me Paul that you were beat up one to many times by the bullies in the neighborhood, not that I advocate that sort of thing... I think you need to find a more constructive hobby than harrasing cyclists. You are a genuine PUTZ!

Summary:
I'm fixin' to leave right now and ride this thing - I think I'll take Girvin Rd - It changes from that as well, BUT, only in JAX - I can't wait to move to Nashville - Just like Paul, We are getting too many people like him here - I've lived here all my life! I'm just tired of the people - So Here's to you Paul, What difference does it make which way we come to the park... as long as we come and enjoy it - you get a PAY CHECK!!!

Recommended Route:
Any way you can find it - It seems it's just another one of those road in jax that suddenly turns into another - and no one know where - if you are coming east it's Fort Caroline - and if you are driving West - it's Mt Pleasant - I bet PAUL is a rooky and just transfered in from somewhere - or he'd know that!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
West side regional, Hannah, my backyard if I don't mow!

Summary:
I have never done the trail but seeing that there is a challange i may check it out. The challange does not seem to be the trail but Ranger Paul. Any who, Living in Jax i am glad to check out any trail, especially after such hot reviews. He he I will post a review after i ride, if you are like me you have read the reviews on tom brown and wondered if it is even worth the time... probably not but you know i want to meet Ranger Paul so...

Recommended Route:
Ride and stay away from Paul I think that is the route i will be taking?!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
JAX - Hanna, Krusty Knuckle, Westside Regional, get a road bike and head to mandrin for our group rides.

Summary:
if you stay on the Willie Browne trail, youll ask yourself wtf you were doing there...hit the hiking trails but watch out for ranger paul...sounds like a reallll tough guy...lol..by the way, your threats are very unprofessional paul..get a life..

Recommended Route:
Willie is ok, but too open and not technical enough...Try the hiking trails, the one that runs next to the marsh is pretty damn technical with some steep climbs and drops..

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hanna
