Very nice trail that not a lot of people know about, but otther mt bikers help keep it up, just be careful at the beginning 1/4 miles for YMCA campers in the summer durring camp hours. There is some mad fun downhills w/ streight up, uphills where you get some nice G's and go about 30MPH. You get a great work out too, but if you want there's ways to avoid uphills.

Summary:
I found this trail back in 2002 and have been riding regularly ever since. I rode it today in fact and I'll ride it again tomorrow. I like it because it's fairly close to home and not a lot of people know about it. I don't have to worry about running into people and their dogs (most of the time). Back when I was into DH I loved the twisted downhill runs but these days I could care less about them. I like the climbs and the spot that goes down to the bay. You can rack of speed pretty quickly on some of the trails. Oh, it's also fun to climb the access road if you know what I'm talking about. It's about five miles or so, and it does loop around. If you don't loop you'll run into a fenced off area for the endangered bald eagles. No joke. Have fun out there and wear your seat belt.

Summary:
Found these trails finally.
Its mostly downhill stuff.
There is this one downhill gully that ends in a 5 foot drop at the edge of a rocky creek.
It also has left turn on very skinny ledge that goes to hump and a huge log.
On the other side of the log is another , shorter descent.

Looks like there are at least 4 entrances to the trails .. all down hill.

Recommended Route:
There is a service road across from DenonVille in on Empire, corner of "Baskets by Design".
The service road closes at 4 .. but there is a wide service trail just to the right of that road entrance.
The trails are hard to see .. but the "Blue Trail" is the second trail that I saw off of that service trail on the left.

I took a Left turn on that blue trail and kept following it left .. it swung around and I noticed a worn path that goes down a gully.

You can also take this service trail all the way to the open fields of YMCA and there are a few entrances to the left .. just follow the edge of the forest.

There is even one down the grassy slope.

You can also park in the YMCA parking lots and ride the open fields towards the assisted living apartments on the other side of the YMCA.
There will be a large clearing on your left .. there is a service path on the right .. and there should be a trail entrance somewhere around there.
If not go past the clearing on your left and look for more openings further beyond like the one down the grassy slope and the one in the camping area.
All downhill stuff except for the rock walk at the bottom,great for building climbing legs.

Summary:
WOW!!! amazing display of all types of riding within 5-6 miles of constant fun! The entrance starts off with a nice, not very steep, but gradual downhill. u can rack up a lot of speed going down this thing but beware of the bumpyness and leaves. switch-backs also own this baby! a lot of balance and technique/finesse must be used on this trail to stay in control. a lot of variations of uphill climbs as well. some extremely straight up (forces you to fight for traction) others very gradual (gotta have a game plan and keep constant pedal strokes). Down hills are amazing!!! truely, it takes a lot of time to understand and master the downhill courses, proper braking and balancing of the brake is a must to keep both wheels down while dodging broken treestumps or humongus roots. I feel sorry for you if you ride a 7005 alloy hard tail frame. Its gonna jar you around!!!!!! just stay off the seat and be proactive! if you counter the obstacles positively you will be fine.

Recommended Route:
go down the 104 bike path untill you reach bay rd. head towards empire blvd, and make a right at the ymca street (i forgot the name, but i think its made up) its located right behind the outdoor playground across the creek.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
webster park. a great trail to hone/develop/learn new skills.

Summary:
This system of trails is pretty good for around here. Nothing is extremely hard on it, but it has a fun factor that is hard to find around here. For the most part all the trails are somewhat wider than most single tracks and are ultra smooth. This makes the trails extremely fast aka fun. This trails are so fast and smooth that I ride my old school ridge cross-country bike with clip-ins (i usually ride a P2). Alot of up's and down's, along with stuff to look at, and its a good place to get some hill climbs in for a work out. The only trouble is the trails don't have alot of technical stuff on them, but its a good place to go out and ride and not get beat up.

Recommended Route:
ride around its all basically the same and good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you want to do some hard core type XC riding go down to hi tor in the naples reagion. Some of the trails there will make you poop your pants. they are basically the same as this place but with tons of rocks and crazy shiit to get in your way (also a shiit ton bigger).

Summary:
This was my first time out mountain biking- something
I've wanted to do for a long time. It was pretty nice. Some technical spots. Didnt have enough time to explore as much as I would have liked to but what i saw was good. Just watch out for other bikers along the single track areas. Oh yea, and go slow when cossing the field because theres lots of kids during the summer camp time.
