       I've been to every major trail system in FL (except those in the Miami area) but Graham is my favorite FL trail.

      Living in Jax, I may be a bit biased due to proximity, but if you like a combination of jumps/launching/flow - Graham is THE PLACE TO GO. Awesome trail guys!!

       My 2018 has been spent riding both Ontario and Vermont as I live in Canada. This trail is excellent considering the challenges of building in a predominantly flat sea-level state. I rode an old 26” hardtail with a suspect rear tire (was in the closet of our rental condo) and was able to do every section. If you bring a modern fs trail bike or 27 Hardtail you’ll have a blast! Great length, challenging sprint climbs, some fun drops, great trail design over packed sand and some cochina soil. A few jumps while on trail, and a big huck at the end (still can be rolled). So happy to have ridden this trail! A stoked Canuck.

       First time riding Graham today and it was a blast, and a beast in this heat and humidity. Excellent variety with some steep, rocky and/or rooty climbs, descents with some drops, bridges, and some good flow sections.

      The big drop or jump sections are well marked with warnings and everything has a less hard work around if you’re not up for it.

      Not as long of climbs or flowy as places like San Felasco, but more technical and steeper climbs and descents.

      A great challenge that can be ridden by riders of all levels. This is overall a blue, but definitely some black+ sections.

       Might be the best trail in FL to give you an idea of what it is like to ride north up in Carolina. Trail builders are committed to natural gnar, lots of root/rock descents and climbs using various materials that work well into the natural settings. You only get 30'-40' of descents or climbs but most of them will test your skills and help you develop for mountains. There is some familiar north Florida XC type trail in here and some of it is positioned nicely to allow you recover from a steep technical climb. This is a must ride for lovers of MTB in FL.

       Great trail with technical features, drops, and jumps about every 20 meters. I am glad I had the opportunity to visit the trail. It is a true black diamond trail. It's obvious the local trail riders take pride in maintaining the trail.
