Are you into off road trail riding? Northwest Florida’s newest offering in Chipley might have just what you’re looking for.
Hard Labor Creek Off Road Park opened in 2010 by off road bike enthusiasts Ted Everett and Dexter Leadbeater. Custom groomed trails transverse and wind around more than 700 acres in the pinewoods off Hwy. 277.
“It’s all about the passion,” said Leadbeater, a life long fan of the sport.
The trails are designed for all skill levels and ages. Several races are held during the year including training classes hosted by nationally ranked competitors.
The park is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. in winter, until 6 p.m. in summer.
