Pretty easy stuff with a couple of "tougher" sections that contain roots and tight turns. Ideal for some light training or a fun ride for beginners. It is actually split into two sections. One part can be entered via parkinglot (outside playground). Head down road toward observation center but turn off road before observation center. Head right down train entrance(paved, then continue across wooden bridge to trail. There are some hikers on occasion so watch out.
The other section can be accessed by riding down parking lot road away from observation center. Make a right onto fire road. Go around the steel cable and follow road until it forces you to go left. Make the left (you have no choice) follow til almost the end then enter trail on left side. Total loop if you complete both sides of trails, is about 8 miles.
Overall, the ride is easy and a bit boring. Weekends and holidays can be a bit annoying due to the kids and families walking around or riding their Wal-Mart bikes!
How to get there:
From I-295: get off at Rout 17 (otherwise known as Roosevelt Blvd.) Head towards Jax NAS (Jacksonville Naval Air Station)- Entrance to Westside Regional Park directly across from entrance to Naval station- this makes for some riding fun to have jets flying close overhead!
