Weeki Wachee Preserve - TRAIL

Weeki Wachee Preserve - Trail, Spring Hill, Florida

This is a open old limerock mine trail area. You can make your own trails. Some trails are starting to be created by riders and there is something for any skill level. You can cycle on limerock roads over spoil hills, and down game trails. At the intersection of U.S. 19 and Spring Hill Drive at Walmart. Head west to the four way stop, take a left and it will be the first road on the right.

Firstly this is a nature preserve so the you can not make your own trails as the heading suggests unless you have zero regard for the environment!
There is a few hills short in length so 99% of the riding is non-technical.
If you follow the signage the bike loop is around 5.5 mi. (not counting the ride from the parking area). There are two spurs which you can out and back to double your mileage. The spurs are wooded and soupy for days after rain. The loop is exposed and dry within a day after rain.
I like it because as a roadie/part-time mtn biker I can ride to the trail and get 3-4 laps in for training.

Customer Service

I ride mtn bike here and elsewhere about 60 mi a week as well as 100 mi a week on the Suncoast Trail. I say this because I wouldn't think I'd want to travel a great distance to bike here for adventure. It's a nice training area, a off-road treadmill if you will to get miles in your legs but nothing more!

A variety of trails that hug the Palmetto and Sand Pine scrub forest on the southern edge. In the open brush prairies in the middle of the Reserve you will find several trails. The northwesterly trail meanders through a similar heavy growth forest on the north end offering a variety of wildlife including bobcat, raccoon, white tailed deer and an occasional Barred Owl or small flock of wild turkeys. The flat trails usually are hard packed with little sand. Great area for a beginner off-road cycler or seasoned enthusiast. Nice place for a family outing.

There are no latrine facilities or water stations...bring what you need.

Customer Service

This a perfect tract if you like a slower pace and want to do some birding or hiking without a great deal of effort. Main trails are marked but many trails created by other off-road cyclers branch off them. Most are circuitous leading back to a main trail. At the park's entrance a one mile paved road leads to boat launch providing access to other trails. Vehicles allowed the second Saturday of each month into the Reserve.

This trail is easy to intermediate depending where you want to ride.

Customer Service

There is fun trails which are actually game trails on the north and west side of the lakes, if you don't mind going through some brush. My brother and I bike here often and make our own trails. There is a large spoil mound you can bike to the top of and have a beautiful view of the gulf and is a good place to watch the sunset. There is a area to the east of the lakes which you can jump and play on some smaller mounds. It is good riding if you don't want to deal with alot of sand. a hard find in Florida.
