Cadillac Trail West

4900 Heritage Park Blvd
Tallahassee FL 32311
(850) 245-7105

Considered one of the area’s “must-ride” trails, the Cadillac Mountain Bike Trail is an intermediate course with several options that fall into the expert realm. This trail is broken into the 1.35-mile West Cadillac and 2.44-mile East Cadillac sections, and a .9-mile Loblolly Trail option for beginners. This trail system is extremely well developed and well maintained by the City of Tallahassee in partnership with The Tallahassee Mountain Bike Association (TMBA). Whether you’re a technical expert or aspiring to be one, these carefully mapped trails are a great, challenging ride for multiple skill levels. More difficult sections are marked with a Black Diamond, or Double Black Diamond Symbol, and intermediate skill areas are marked with a Blue Square Symbol. The trail is easily accessed through the Lafayette Heritage Trail Park in the Piney Z neighborhood. Here you will also find restrooms, a bike wash, picnic areas, and a playground.

This fantastic single-track trail system is roughly 7-miles long and features several natural elevation changes. From challenging uphills and fast, technical descents, the Cadillac Trail is very versatile. Along the East Cadillac portion of the trail, optional manmade challenges like narrow bridges, logs, and jumps allow riders to test the limits of their skills—including an 8-foot jump best left to experts. The wooden ramp system along this trail rises and dips sharply, and has been described as a “mountain bike roller coaster” by many who have enjoyed it. Meanwhile, the West Cadillac Trail offers challenges of its own, from the thickly rooted trail itself to the ever-changing elevation of the terrain. For those who just aren’t ready for the ride to end, the West Cadillac Trail connects to other trails in Tom Brown Park, and then leads into the Fern Trail. This allows riders to string together as much riding as their legs can handle.


Featured Uses: Mountain biking and careful trail running. Leashed dogs are permitted.
