Hey Pedal Pushers! Come to Canoe Rentals at the Park for some great biking.
At the Park it's easy to spend a few hours or even an entire day riding the trails. We have fifteen miles of hard-packed shell trail on the east side of the Loxahatchee River and another two or three miles on the west, all for your enjoyment.
Your trip should start at Canoe Rentals at the Park where we can rent you a bike.
From the Canoe Rentals parking lot, you'll enter the park via the trail head nearest to the canoe and kayak launch. Nearby is a chickee. No, not a small domestic bird, a chickee is the Cheek/Seminole word for a thatch-covered hut supported by posts. This chickee has maps and information on trails at the park.
The trail where the chickee is located is called the "Hunt Camp Trail", which will take you to Reeses Boulevard toward the back section of the park, some two miles away. Most all of the other biking trails meet up with Reeses Boulevard at some point.
Bikes are a good way to visit the park since you can get to several popular areas quickly and easily. You should make it a point to checkout the Farmstead or the Seminole Village. You are also only a few minutes away from Cow Pen Lake and the many picnic shelters that surround the shoreline.
Animals that you are likely to encounter include many different species of birds, raccoons, a bunch of squirrels, perhaps even deer or for early morning or late in the day riders, a bobcat. Watch for alligators near any place that has water.
