About This Event
The Fakahatchee Grind offers four distinctive routes for the ultimate off-road experience in the southeast.

About this Event

The Fakahatchee Grind is an opportunity to ride your Gravel bike or mountain bike through one of the most diverse and unique ecosystems in the state.  The chance of you seeing a panther on this ride is in your favor.

In order to encourage social distancing during this pandemic, the event will be done in an OYO ( On your Own format). Once riders finish their ride, they will submit their GPS verification and times to be compared to other participants

The recommended donation amount to get any of the routes is 10$.

If you want a commemorative one of a kind patch and bandanna, the recommended donation amount is 30$

This will be the Seventh Running of the Fakahatchee grind, and in honor of this momentous occasion, we are offering 4 different routes to choose from.

The Faka XL is just that, Fakahatchee, Big Cypress, Picayune, and everything else in the lower half of the state, 250 miles of riding and the biggest mostly off-road loop offered in south Florida.

The Full Grind, nearly 90 miles of amazing gravel grinding, through Fakahatchee, Big Cypress, and Picayune

The Half Grind, at around 50 or so miles this ride takes you through Big Cypress and Fakahatchee but leaves out the PIcayune to keep it short.

The Faka Baka, is a backcountry loop showing you the inner guts and of the Fakahatchee strand. This is not a gravel grind, mountain bikes with fat tires seriously recommended.

The Faka 100, a trip into the guts of Fakahatchee with a mix of picayune and some of its sweet singletrack.

Start Location, Fakahatchee event field (the next left turn past the park visitor center entrance).

The riding promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience.

Join the fun.

Please remember to pay your entry fee to the park before starting your ride.
