Pinehurst Trail - TRAIL

Pinehurst Trail - Trail, Green Acres, Florida

Very technical and well Plotted, being designed by one of the few who have designed the trails in P.B.C. Progress is still being made, your suggestions are welcome and will be addressed as this trail is sanctioned by the Parks dept. There is a number there solely for that purpose. This is what the county has given us to use as a trail. Make it what we will it is ours to build. All skill levels have their own trails from the mild to some only the best can conquer, trials skills are awarded with big grins and or scabs. Thanks to all the people who got this trail going, labor and negotiations with the county, thanks to the county for the chance!!!!!!

Overall pretty fun trail, that will definitely get the heart pumping. Recent upgrades to the trail has taken care of a lot of the sugar sand issues. The newer trail system here marked with blue and offers alternate routes, including an advanced route (marked with black diamond). "Rooty" technical sections, some decents, some drops, sweeping turns and switchbacks make this trail fun. Usually packed with riders of all skill levels. I would consider this trail a great beginner trail. Nothing overly difficult, but will help you get confidence to try harder trails. Overall i enjoy this trail

From I95, take forest hill west to pinehurst dr, and go south. The park will be on the east side.

Similar Products Used: Dyer park is fun, and also a good beginner trail. West delray regional park is also a blast, but i recommend mastering dyer and pinehurst before going there.

Tons of sugar sand, no descents. This is the stereotypical flat land trail, ie the butt of the FL rider/trail jokes in the forums. No tech, just roots, palms, and sugar sand on flat land. There was one weak climb I coasted up, just to be disappointed on the way down; a first glace what appeared would be a small drop turned out to be ramped. Ending weakness with weak sauce.

The trail markers are a bit dated most the 'Red' arrows are easier than the other colors mostly blue. IMO these trails should have been marked green with the occasional blue route. No evidence the park is capable of reaching an advanced trail let alone claiming to have expert trails (red). No actual rating system in use or signs to tell you what trail you're getting on. At best this is a mundane beginner trail. There doesn't look to be much potential for more. Many switch backs I doubt there is enough room to expand into anything beyond flat land XC.

S on Pinehurst, W on Lake Worth, S on the Turnpike... I'd recommend hitting up a Broward or Dade Co. park.

Our favorite LOCAL trail - it's not really long, but it's a great workout. You can go as fast as you want to make it harder, but this is where we first learned (and continue to learn) how to handle a lot of little technical stuff: fallen logs, rollovers, tight spots, saw palmetto trunks. Not too much elevation change, but there are some ups and downs to get some quad-burning going. Local group (FORCE) does a nice job of upkeep and adding new trails and technicals - even after some jagoffs burned 3 acres!! Back in March during drought was VERY tough, but the sand is much, much better with some moisture on it. Try the Log Bridge - 30 feet of nerves, baby!

Customer Service

Park at Freedom Park, ride South down bikepath on Pinehurst to chained gate into woods. If it's your first time on a MTB, ride all blues. If it's your first time at the trail but you've got skills, take the very first little red, and then the second red. That'll make about a 3 mile loop through. There are several other short Red off-shoots from the main trails that have LOTS of palmetto roots to navigate. They're about the hardest part of the whole trail. Some nice log rollovers built by FORCE lead you you other nice, short Red bursts of energy.

They did a lot of work on this trail. I am newer to riding in Florida but I had a lot of fun riding this trail. Since I started the trail has been marked so you know where your going. I always see people on the trail and everyone seems to like it. This is a technical trail with a lot of shade. If you haven't been to this trail in a while check it out.

They have done a lot of work on the trail. I have a blast riding here. It is very technical so don't go to fast your first time. Plenty of obsticals to ride over and the shade makes it even better. If you rode this trail a few years ago it is totally different now try it again you will be plesantly surprised.

The trail involves quite a bit of stump jumping and making one's way through tight turns with trees on both sides. In the summer, the course really gets sandy, although efforts have been made to mulch the sandiest portions. There is one ramp that you shouldn't try unless you know what you are doing. Nothing steep or high and hairy. I consider myself a newbie, & I found the course difficult, but have recently started feeling comfortable. I live 10 minutes from the course, I can go through the course in about 45 minutes, and feel good about getting my required aerobic exercise. Getting over the stumps is very difficult at 1st, but with some tips you will get the hang of it. Get some momentum, get up off the saddle & have fun!

Customer Service

Trail is well marked with A, B & X sections. I ride mostly B with some X sections if I am following an experienced rider.

Not a bad trail especially since it's local. Great for a good workout. By the second time I rode it, I got into it. Definitely a work in progress with loads of potential.

Similar Products Used: One hour south I recommend Oleta...that park is AWESOME! One hour north I recommend Fort Pierce. Of course JD is great too!

I haven't been riding for awhile but just recenty went to Pinehurst. It was good to see a lot of people riding this trail and hope that it won't become another condo site in So Fla. The trail is short but technical with a mix of sugarsand, log hills, tight turns, and a few jumps. The roots make it a good workout, they are spaced close together and are spiderwebbed through tight turns.

Customer Service

There is a park (cant remember the name) nest to where the trail is. The trail is just south of the soccer fields and you can enter them off pinehurst road. I reccomend parking at okeeheelee park and then riding to enterance - the security seems better at okeeheelee.
