Are you a mountain bike enthusiast? The Munson Hills Mountain Bike Trail offers a scenic and challenging ride through some of the most rolling terrain on the Apalachicola National Forest. You will be free from traffic hazards and can quietly explore remote areas - whatever your ability.

The original trail has expanded to include the Twilight Loop, for a total of 21 miles. The old sand dunes of Munson Hills were once Florida's shoreline, but now support towering longleaf pines and pristine ponds.

This trailhead is co-located with the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Park bike trail, a paved 16-mile rail-trail connecting Tallahassee with the coastal community of St. Marks.
