This is in the Shangri-La section of the network. Fun and fast, semi-technical,
cross country type trail that starts at 49th Avenue and brings you all the way
to CR 484. Most of the trail is wide open fast riding but does offer some
tighter, more technical sections with some slow gradual elevation changes
going both ways. Unlike the more popular Santos/Vortex sections, some areas
are susceptible to sugar sand during the dryer months, but overall it's fairly

Review: Great trail(s) away from the busy Santos Trailhead that makes it a good pick for weekend riding. Lots of tight turns and close trees to ride between. Various vegetation types to travel thru...pine, oak and palmetto forest. There are a few mounds to climb keeping the trip interesting. The north trail is 6 miles of blue and the south is 4 miles. The south trail features a long wooden bridge that presents a good climb returning east. The final 1.5 miles is a yellow trail. The trail begins at the 49th Avenue Trailhead where the only facilities are portable potties and no drinking water.

Review: One of my favorites at Santos. Really like the ups and downs, the trail is shady and from landbridge we rode 20 miles and enjoyed it all.

Review: Our first time riding. Once we found the trailhead we had a great ride. A nice, long ride, with some nice twists and technical areas. Better signage would be great and distance markiers (if possible) too. A great ride though.

Review: Combine this with Ern n burn for some of the most fun fast flowy cross country riding in Florida, just rode this again and the new wooden bridge up that sandy hill is a great add, great job to those who built it! These trails from 49th to Ross Prairie and back are my favorite in the state.

Review: A great section of Santos. It's a nice long ride with a lot of variety. You go from tight twisty singletrack to playing on the canal diggings to wide open pine forests where you can open up the throttle. Great trail and well maintained by OMBA.

Review: Great cross country riding! A good way to change it up from the more popular sections of Santos. A nice long ride with some semi-technical sections. You'll have a blast out here!
