Seasonal Trail Conditions
« on: February 27, 2012, 08:00:32 PM »
Just curious as to how the trails hold up to the rain that the summers of Florida bring.  Any trails at Boyette and Alafia that should be avoided?  Do they dry out quick or is the summer time riding after rains just a wash.  Is it suggested not to ride in wet conditions due to possibly damage to some trails?

Most trails stay in good shape during the rainy season, especially the more sandy trails.  Clay based trails and low lying trails just suck in the wet conditions.  Some of these individual trails of our different trail systems get closed until they can drain and handle the bike traffic.  Croom is by far about the best trail system to ride in the rainy season! 

Ridgeline and SWAMP Thing at Boyette get closed in the rainy season.  Sometimes only for a couple of days or a week if there is torrential rains.  We also try and post up here and on the swamp group when trails are closed.
