This ten-mile loop of wide singletrack through Alabama's Conecuh National Forest provides an easy day trip under most conditions. The trail was opened to mountain biking only recently. Despite having the "rollingest" hills around (Florida's highest elevation is approx. 25 miles southeast), no long climbs exist between the numerous wetlands, marked most often by ponds, or sinks, as they're called a few miles south in Florida. A quiet approach to these clearings will seldom disappoint the alert wildlife watcher. Ducks, egrets, and herons stalk and paddle among turtles basking on logs. An extremely furtive approach to one of these sites could catch a mink among the brush or a gator laid out on the surface of the water, eyes up and watching for a side order of frog legs. The bogs, ponds, and savannas inside this 80,000-acre forest also support a wide variety of unusual plants.

Great trails, well marked shared with hikers and very well maintained. The trails run all over the park, most interesting was the cat walks down by the river and the blue spring coming out of the ground. Camping was great a little buggy but not bad.
