If you do the trip to Balm Boyette, this is THE trail you must do. Big steep rolling drops that flow well make it very unique in Florida. No riding when wet or damp, very prone to erosion.

 One of the best trails in Florida! A series of steep roller coaster drops. You can get plenty of speed on this trail great flow. Do it 3 or 4 times. It gets better and better!

 Ridgeline trail is close during and immediately following any decent rains.
Both for the safety of the riders and the trail system wich is county owned wetlands
