      10 miles of beginner to light-intermediate classic Florida singletrack through hydric hammock, mesic hammock, sand pine scrub, xeric hammock, scrub, scrubby flatwoods, and pine flatwoods that flows through Turkey Creek Sanctuary, Malabar Scrub Sanctuary (East/West), and Cameron Preserve. The trails are well marked (including direction) and offer a variety of cross-county riding conditions. Expect small elevation changes, tight winding turns, sand pits, technical root sections, bridges, and hard packed singletrack.
