Jonathan Dickinson State Park at 11,500 acres is a real treasure with something for everyone - biking, paddling, hiking, camping, picnicking, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, and more. The park roads are bikeable, plus there are scenic nature trails and paved bicycle trails. Club Scrub is a mountain biking club that maintains nine miles of mountain biking trail at the Camp Murphy trail system. A paved one-mile multi-use trail parallels the main park road from the Visitor Center to the equestrian trailhead. Old Dixie Highway (shut down through the park), though rough and rutted, is now a biking trail adjacent to the Camp Murphy mountain trails. During World War II the land was originally a Signal Corps facility for top-secret training in a new (at the time) technology called "radar." It was transferred to the State in 1947 and the park opened in 1950. (Trip report: Dec. 2016)
