J.C.'s Bikes and Boards in Deland had done a fantastic job with this trail system. It is a fantastic technical training trail more than it is a sightseeing trail. Lot's of good riding to be had now if you explore the trail system a little bit.

Customer Service

All of it. Look around and explore. There are now a lot of trails in there that are all good.

Nice trail. Just refurbished and improved? Its not a long trail but fun. Sort of lke amore intense version of Environmental Trail in Casselberry. Lots of blind drops and steep bowls. Also a few bridges and other tech stuff. Fun ride, keep fast and keep hydrated.

Customer Service

First parking lot on left. The map near the center bowl section tells you to start on the left-side trail and follow the signs. Well marked and one-way traffic keeps its safe and fun. Section that runs along back of the trail near the RR tracks is alot more intense, you have your choice to turn home or take the left to the more challenging area. lots of steep bowls.

the cross contry trail ridden from north west at the parking lot, clockwise around with a rough figure 8 on the south side(double ride the central trail on the south side) is sweet rolling. xc will change in elevation from 5' to 15' regularly, there are a few level places to catch your breath usually tight single track. the trail moves nice and is mostly hard pack with a clay and sand mix for a base. the climbs and drops can be steep with no visibility on the other side of the hill or turn, making two way riding on the xc trail not very smart. you have heard of poision ivy? some people are more sensitive to it than others, but its there, waiting for you to make a mistake. i still think the xc trail is worth it, ok yep its short, xc = 2 1/2 miles, maybe, awesome at a fast pace. when you get dizzy or tired try the jump bowl and the area around the central trail north. some great natural stuff, and when time allows work is going on building some freeride and jump challenges.
through the work of jc and ms the county has given us permision to be out there and open up the area to bicycles. the county doenot want trouble or additional liabilities so please; stubborn and stupid will get everyone nowhere.
the area around the trails in chuck lennon park need responsible people to build an area that has something for everyone.
the rulles i follow; dont leave any trash, dont build a difficult trail feature in the middle of the cross country trail. anything that is difficult should have a clear fall area and an alternate route. ride with your head and have safety gear on.
there is a map posted at the entrance to the first jump bowl, for now some orange tape marks some of the cross country trail.

Not a whole lot of good things to say about this trail. Short, wet, and basically not even a trail. A few jumps and make shift ramps but mostly a dump. Unless u are in the very close local area, I would not waste my time coming here.

I decided to try these trails for the first time after reading about them here in MTBR. The description "technical BMXish singletrack" is accurate. There are a ton of dips, steep drops and jumps packed into a small area. I had a blast riding here. My only complaint is the limited number of trails (although some locals told us of a long "hidden" trail we're going to try to find on our next visit). My first impression is this is a good place for a couple of hours of fun but not for an all day ride. I would rank the trails 5 chilis, but have to knock it down to 4 due to the limited number of trails.

Customer Service

The directions were a little misleading. The trails are not in DeLeon Springs State Recreation Area. They are about 1/4 mile away at Chuck Lennon Park. The park ranger at DeLeon Springs was nice enough to give us directions.

This trail is a fun little ride put very short. There are a number of pits with plenty of opportunities for big air and insane jumps off ledges. I once saw a guy get at least 8 to 10 feet above the lip of a huge jump.
There are alot of BMXers who tend to congregate around the pits so prepare to be slowed down if doing a loop.
If it has rained avoid this place like the plague. It is so hard packed that even a little rain makes it slippery as hell. I have yet to go there and not seen someone get totally racked, either one of my buds or some poor shmoe. The pits are so inviting that you can't help to feel like Evil Knieval, avoid the temptaion if you have a real job or no insurance.

Customer Service

Enter trail from left side of first parking lot. Drop in to first pit and stay left to get the to the fun stuff.
