The Bracken Mountain Biking and Hiking Trail opened at the end of July, 2012. It’s the County’s newest trail and is a huge success! Go out and have fun on this trail that came to be through the hard work of the City of Brevard, many local volunteers and Long Cane Trails.

Access Info

You can park at the base of the trail (just up the hill from the Brevard Music Center) or in downtown.
