Best Mountain Bike Parks in South Florida



Florida is known for warm weather, Disney, and having some of the best beaches in the world. What it's not known for, is Mountain Biking, or is it? In South Florida (Jupiter, FL and south) there is a massive following in the MTB (Mountain Bike) community. There are annual sponsored races and hundreds of miles of trails.


But Florida is flat, how is there any Mountain Biking?


Well, you don't need an actual mountain to engage in the sport. To create an effective MTB park in Florida, you need small hills and a lot of manpower to create man-made features.
