Munson Hills - Apalachicola National Forest
Encompassing 632,890 acres, Apalachicola National Forest is the largest national forest in Florida. It covers portions of Wakulla, Leon, Liberty and Franklin counties. The forest includes the Bradwell Bay Wilderness Area and the Mud Swamp / New River Wilderness Area. If you enjoy camping and being outdoors, you could easily spend your entire vacation exploring this area. The Munson Hills mountain bike area is just one of many interesting places to visit in Apalachicola National Forest if you like off-road bicycling, hiking, or trail running.

The Munson Hills trail system extends for about 21 miles through rolling forested terrain - all single track trail. The north Munson loop trails, extending for 7.6 miles, are hard-packed red clay. The south Twilight loops are sandier and softer, but still a good ride. Both the north and south loops have bailouts for riders who don't want the do the entire loop route. There are also connectors between the north and south loops at the east and west side of the area.

There are three trailheads providing access to the Munson mountain bike area. All are along the paved Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail. The primary access point is at the north trailhead - which is where our navigation link below will take you. This location has ample parking and restrooms. The south trail head is more convenient for those wishing to bike the Twilight loop. It is located at J. Lewis Hall Park. This location also has parking and restroom facilities. Another trailhead is located midway between the north and south access points - and is accessble by bike or on foot along the Tallahassee St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail.

No motorized bicycles are allowed on the trails. Hiking or trail running is permitted, but horseback riding is not. Dogs are allowed if leashed.
