Canebrake is a super-easy, flowing, and sweeping bit of single track. This section of trail is a perfect warm-up before hitting the Copperhead or Gator trails and has a direct connector across the access road to both. It's wide enough to make clean passes on and super-flat.

It's easy to get fast/rowdy if you're prone to pushing a hard pace, but be mindful that some of the sweeping turns and switchbacks are blinded by reeds and cane (thus the name); so there may be a rider ahead of you that is unseen and moving much slower, or with kids on small bikes.
