Alafia River Park
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
The words awesome, radical, epic, and extreme lace the chatter over Alafia River State Park’s biking trails. Once a land torn by phosphate mining, the property was rescued by Florida State Parks in 1996. Today, the park offers an unusual terrain for off-road biking, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and boating. Its 6000 acres is dotted with small lakes, high ridges, deep ravines and thick woodlands. An area cut up with extensive excavation, the rippled land is a rarity in the flatlands of central Florida. The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) has bestowed their Epic designation to this web of trails. A trail map is posted in the parking lot, designating all skill levels. Equestrian trails are well marked, separating different uses.
