Great trail overall. Perfect for the whole family or the seasoned pro. Quite a bit of elevation change for FL with some pretty tech sections as well as numerous man made obstacles. When combined with Magnolia(Tom Brown park) and Fern trails there is about 13 miles of trails. All trails mentioned are marked with bright blue blazes and are extremely easy to navigate.

Customer Service

Park in Tom Brown park near the large "Mother of Playgrounds". Can't miss it. The trail starts near the bikewash/trail map. Go down the hill, across the wood bridge, and stay to the left for singletrack. You will come to a bench after a short climb. Stay to the left again for single track. Pass another bench, stay to the left, then arrive at another park. This looks like the end of the trail but the fun hasn't even started yet. Cross the asphalt and continue towards another bench and trail map. There is a loop that starts and ends at this pavilion. This is the most fun stretch of trail in Tally. Fast, flowy singletrack with many man made options and drops.

Completely redone in 2009. Fun single-track with skinny-rides, teeter-totter, bridges, table-top drop, log crossings (& bypasses)and one big 30 foot drop (also with an EZ bpass).

Customer Service

Stick with the Cadillac Trail signs and pick your route as you go. Every expert section has a intermediate section bypass. If the intermediate sections are too tough, you're never too far from the beginner multi-use trail.

Good workout with several options as far as difficulty. You get to see some abandoned cars with woods grown up around them as you approach Piney-Z.

This new trail has encouraged lots of riders around town to pull their bikes back out of the garage. This somewhat technical single track is loads of fun. There are lots of log crossings and steep inclines and remains fairly consistent throughout the entire ride. This trail is fun all the way though and is just as fun both ways. The trail gets its name from the junked cars that are scattered at the end of the trail, however none of them are Cadillacs. I guess the trailblazers around here are not into antique cars. Who cares you can only see them for a few seconds anyways. The lush scenery is great and is completely out in the woods; the view of the lake is only occasionally spoiled by the train tracks below. I do not recommend this trail to fresh beginners because it can tend to be frustrating if you are not used to obstacles. Even more recently the trail has been extended out further and eventually pops out near some dykes. This new extension is not as fun as the first half but it is hard to say no to fresh single track. If you start downtown and take the Fern Trail into Tom Brown and do half a lap then continue on to the Cadillac trail then take the roads back to Tom Brown etc.. You can make a nice 30 mile ride that can be tailored either longer or shorter. VERY FUN check it out!!

I was in from Jacksonville for the Holidays and headed to TBP for a ride by myself. I hooked up with 4 other locals from the Capitol City Cycling club who took me through this new trail. It was a little wet and cold that day but the trail was still in good condition though a little slick. This was a great ride ! Some good technical areas and some good little drops and climbs. Thanks for being nice to an out-of-towner, hats off to the CCC guys !

Entrance is hard to find, but the trail itself is marked with orange tape. Trail was just build by a local bike club. Very difficult drops, climbs and log jumps. An occasional tree fall that has to be walked over. Passes by some rusting 50s era junked cars, hence the name. Eventually crosses a causeway across Piney Z Lake. Go left along the Railroad tracks for a few yards after crossing the lake. There is a steep 5 foot drop off by an Oak Tree. Walk up this for a continuation through open woods. About 5 miles from the park to the causeway, but seems longer. Nice open North Florida scenery.

Customer Service

Begins from Tom Brown Park on Capitol Circle East. Entrance is from an open field on the exercise trail between the BMX track and the Dog Park. Connects with Tom Brown Park Trail and the Fern Trail.

A good trail. Not the hardest and not even close to being the easiest. The only bad thing is that the trail is not marked well and you can get lost out by the lakes. A lot of fun with some nice climbs - not expected in florida.

Customer Service

Start behind the dog training area. Through the entrance for the fitness trail, bike trail stays to the left.
