Unpaved Biking with Nature on Public Lands

Florida's many parks and preserves on Federal, State and local public lands offer a wealth of unpaved (and some paved) nature/eco-biking options for fat-tire bikes, and Central Florida is home to some of the best. Here is a summary of some unpaved trails near Orlando that we've enjoyed. We've also included links to full reports (maps, photos) located on our sister website .

Note: Trail conditions may vary from year to year, subject to storms, repairs, and closures.
