This is a 5.5 mile loop on the west bank of Newnans Lake. It starts and ends at the West Trailhead of Newnans State Forest where there is parking but no other facilities. Most experienced riders won't find this trail challenging but there is enough here to make a trip worth while. It is approximately 5 miles from the Sweetwater Trails/Downtown Gainesville and it is definitely rideable so the two could connected, all be it on tarmac. For beginners, the trail is sometimes hard to follow as it is relatively and not 'ridden in'. Keep a close watch for the blue circular signs hung on trees which guide the way. Sections of the trail are rough and bumpy and will keep your overall speed down. You will definitely need a trail bike to ride it and experienced riders will appreciate a full suspension bike here.

Access Info

Park at the West Trailhead of Newnans State Forest: 1698 NE 55th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32609.
