It's been years since I've been there..... if we're talking about the same place in Tallahassee?
It had alot of trails, some were challenging. It's was the only thing in the area, so that made it great. It's fun, and definitely worth it, if your gonna be there anyway.

Some Tom Brown area info

I have a sampling of photos and links to some GPS tracks in a few galleries on my site.
The bike trail in Tom Brown Park is named Magnolia Trail. Most folks indeed just refer to it as Tom Brown.
West of Tom Brown (heading toward downtown Tally) is Fern Trail.
East of TBP is Cadillac Trail, aka Lafayette Heritage Park.
Cadillac has several options, including multi-use and singletrack.
Continuing east and north, you reach ~900 acre Alford Greenway Park.
All of this is easily accessible by parking at the BMX track in Tom Brown.
A few web resources:
Some TBP maps from the City site: http://www.talgov.com/parks/tombrownpk.cfm
Some County links worth a look:

TLCGIS link showing all county parks:

My site:

Try the gallery categories "Trail Build," "Parks and Trails," and "Bicycle! Bicycle!"
There are weekly Tuesday Night group rides (with lights) from Higher Ground Bike's MTB location. http://www.hgbco.com/mainPage.htm
Good luck,

Tom Brown is a great park. I love all of the different trails in and around Leon County/Tallahassee. Lots of choices depending on how I feel or how fast I want to go or how technical a ride I want to do.

If you like the Magnolia Trial (Tom Brown) also check out Redbug.

Then there is Eleanor Klapps-Phipps Park, Lake Overstreet, Munson Hills, Miccosukee Greenway, maybe a few I forgot and the ones TallahasseeTrails mentioned.

as for the 4x track, thats kinda gone by the wayside.

They started to rebuild it with some fresh clay, but it never got finished and its now overgrown.
Along with the BMX track, there are also some LARGE DJ's. There not very well groomed, but someone has been riding them.

And, the trail system through TBP is pretty sweet!
