I rode this trail for the first time October 13th 2014 and was impressed. It is a very challenging trail and well above a beginner level. Nicely designed, lots of challenges, and a good flow. I've ridden all the Santo and Alafia Rive blue trails and the is more challenging than those sites. Challenging, yet completely doable for an intermediate rider.

Thanks to the trail team on a job well done.

I am blessed to be within a 1/2 hour drive of 4 great trails. Graham Swamp being the manly mans trail. I have been riding mountain bikes for a year now and used to avoid this trail. I thought the trail crew was trying to kill me. After a few laps and a little experience, I now see the love put into this it. Thanks Guys! I look forward to helping out.

1st time ride with a group of mixed bag of riding styles. We even had a trial bike rider(rode on his reg bike though). I really loved this trail. It's got it all. Tech sections, nice climbs, a few tight switchbacks, nice drops, flowy sections n twisty singletrack. We rode a day after 3days of steady rain n it drains perfect. Not a beginners trail. Probably a handful to ride during dry season. God willing we'll be back sooner than later. Kudos to the trail volunteers!

I've loved Graham Swamp for 6+ years now! It's got everything you need--descents, climbs, ladders, tight turns, roots, rocks packaged into 6.6 miles of fun. You get a workout from the very beginning and the first 1.5 miles will get you winded. There are go arounds on some of the tougher sections for beginner riders. I wouldn't call this a beginner trail though so proceed with caution (: But keep riding this trail and it will make any other trail in the area seem like a piece of cake. Haven't been here in a while? Come check it out with some new sections that have been built. This trail just keeps evolving with all the hard work that is put into it by a very small group of trailbuilders (if you ever see them, give them a thumbs up!). The city just built a new, paved parking lot with super clean bathrooms about 1/2 mile south of the original trailhead so you can get an extra mile out and back if you choose. I feel blessed to live 1/2 hour riding distance from "the swamp". Make sure you go to Facebook and like their page called Graham Swamp Trail Crew! Enjoy and keep on riding!

Do NOT mistake this for the trailhead on Old Kings Road (you'll understand why if you did)!!! The trailhead for Graham Swamp is located on Colbert Road in Palm Coast.

This was an amazing trail. Live in West Palm and ride up with a group of people. What a great time I had. The trail has climbs, tight turns, drops, rocks, and jumps. The scenery is beautiful and a well planned and maintained trail. High recommendations on riding this lots of times.

Rode this trail today. I must say it was nothing like the reviews I've read here. We went down everything trail and didn't find any jumps, ups and down, whips, or climbs. Not sure exactly who is rating this but I give it two thumbs down.

Quick ups and downs, sandy, fun, buggy & hot. Def. better after some rain. NOT A BEGINNER TRAIL! Def. worth the trip especially if the waves are small. Combine with MC or the Moses creek trail. The GS trail crew is to be commended! Done a lot with a little.

I rode Graham Swamp about 6 weeks ago and came way very impressed. I had made the 3-1/2 drive from Jupiter, specifically to ride Mala Compra, then on the way back I had remembered a buddy mentioning Graham Swamp. I had already ridden 2 hours /over 18 miles in 85 deg temps and really only was going to check out the trail head, but when I saw the elevation change for the walking trail, I immediately became interested and pulled the bike out for round 2. Man, I wish I had made GS my first stop, the trail had everything I like. Lot's of elevation change, natural obstacles, tons of variety and you really got the feeling that you were out "in the woods" and not just on a small pice of land zig-zagging back and forth. Great workout and fun technical challenge with log-overs, roots and rocks. Only did the one lap, 6.5 miles about 40 minutes, but next time will make it several times around.

It was a fun and technical trail. I appreciate the efforts made to give the trail the advanced jumps & obstacles; however it also gave the beginner jumps, rollovers, paths, and whoops. I would like more signs so I could cut it short & know how to get back to the parking area from different points. Like a previous review I didn't know how far until I got to the 4.5 mile marker. There were some soft spots but for the most part we could ride thru the trails with ease.

This is a great trail. Go after we have had some good rain so that the sand is firm. Definitely an advanced trail for Florida, it was too hard for my girlfriend so we put her bike back in the truck and she walked the hiking trail while I rode the bike trail. Lots of short steep climbs and drops with some jumps that you will catch air over if you are ripping. The trail twists and turns for about 6 miles and a good bit of the trail is through pine forest with pine needles covering the ground. I don't think that a first timer can find your way out without doing the whole trail, so be prepared for a workout. I noticed a mile marker sign at mile 4 or 4.5 and at each 1/2 mile after that.
