About the Park
AJ's Bikes Off-Road Trails - Carter Road Park
Carter Road Mountain Bike Park has approximately 8 miles of mostly singletrack trails ranging from intermediate to advanced through an old phospate mine. These trails are challenging and will take you through some beautiful forest and swamps. More than a few riders have come across large alligators in the middle of the trails. The Ridge Riders Mountain Bike Association maintains these trails, check their website for volunteer & membership information.
