Challenge your biking skills with these trails that wind through Apalachicola National Forest.
Just 1 mile south (via a paved trail or dirt trail that runs parallel to it) of the St. Marks Trailhead lies the entrance to some of the area’s most popular trail systems—the Munson Hills Trails. A bench and water fountain await at the trail’s entrance, then the trail proceeds through an upland pine forest that is home to Fox Squirrels, gopher tortoises, coyote and other wildlife. After about 25 minutes on the trail, a fork gives riders the choice of tackling the shorter “Pine Top Short Course” or the full “Munson Hills Trail.”
The Pine Top Short Course is a single track course marked by white slashes on the pine trees that runs approximately 2 miles, winding up and down past several small ponds and depressions before looping back to the main trail. The Munson Hills Trail, marked with blue slashes, is closer to 5 miles in total length and offers breathtaking scenery. In addition, there are 21 miles of connected trails one can choose to partake in crisscrossing each other within the Apalachicola National Forest, including the popular Twilight Trail.
