Green Loop – Sand Pine Trail (Easy):
Distance: 5.50 miles
Elevation Gain: 175.62 feet
The first few miles of this loop pass through the park’s horse trails. A good warmup for the loops to come, you’ll run across gentle rolling open grassy field and through groves of tall pines. At mile 3.5 a left turn will take you to a different planet. The ribbon of white sand trail snakes through a sea of needle palms and moss covered trees. It is spectacular. Pick your jaw up and run. This section is super-fast but don’t cut any corners because, well, they are named needle palms for a reason. Near mile 5 you join with the Yellow and Red Loops and run in together to the cheers of the Village.
Yellow Loop – Rock Garden Trail (Intermediate):
Distance: 4.30 miles
Elevation Gain: 272.42 feet
The Yellow Loop runs through the park’s amazing mountain bike trails. Located on what was once a phosphate mining site, the unique topography of the reclaimed land offers some of Florida's most radical elevation changes. The mined areas filled with emerald green pools and a jungle grew up around the pools. It is almost as if someone tried to create the coolest jungle landscape imaginable. And succeeded. This loop leaves the village with the Red Loop as the trail twists and turns through a dense jungle. At mile 1.3 you split apart from the Red Loop. And then…Up, Up, down, down, left, right, left, right…just like old school. Up and over hills, twisting and turning along the edge of pools, and crossing over bridges. Like a real life video game for trail runners. You may not want this level to end.
Red Loop – Magic Island Trail (Hard):
Distance: 5.60 miles
Elevation Gain: 395.14 feet
Do you like rollercoasters? We do, and so it’s no surprise we love this loop. It starts out leaving the Village with the Yellow Loop running through the jungle on single-track for just over a mile. Now take a deep breath and put your hands up. Near mile 2.5 this loop takes a turn for the wicked in sections of trail appropriately named magic island and twisted sister. You might discover perpetual motion and feel the effects of G-Force as the trail dives and climbs, twists and turns, and swoops and soars. It might take a minute to regain your land legs once you return to the Transition Tent but you will not soon forget the Magic Island Trail.
