Trail Description
About this trail
81,290 acres of pure off-road riding bliss. Santos is the largest and best known mountain biking park in the Ocala, Florida area. Santos official designation is Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.Greenwa**tretch many miles throughout the state of Florida.The greenway was born out of the failed Cross Florida Barge Canal which was terminated in the late 60s. Santos is named for the small town where the main trailhead is located. Standard trail markings are in place here - yellow trails ae beginner, blue intermediate and red markings for advanced. The majority of advanced riding is located around two abandonded mining pits. Trails range from flat and rolling to rocky and steep. The large network of trails can make it easy for the unintiated to get lost. Make sure to have a map and compass with you. Locals are always happy to help out with directions. The trail network is so extensive that you can spend a couple of days here and never tire of riding the evergrowing miles of singletrack.

Q: what is the vortects area -Guest

A: Vortex is a series of red single track trails and wooden features with a freeride area. All of the area is designated expert level and some of the features are closed except for special events. (example the 20' dropoff) Great riding area!

Review: Awesome fun. I got 32 miles in when we rode 01/01/2016. I stayed out of the Vortex, just not my thing, but got in most or pieces of the other trails. From the easy trails to the most difficult. 49th Street Trail head was were I turned around at and headed back to catch more of the different trails. The only place I ended up walking the bike was the John Brown trail by the rock quarry.

FYI: The coolest thing I saw all day was a small child on a strider bike on one of the difficult trails.

Similar Trail: Munson/Tom Brown in places.

Review: Great flow on most of the trails and the community was very welcoming! My only problem was that I accidentally turned onto one of the horse trails which was so churned up and muddy that I had to walk the bike for a large portion of it. As long as you read the signs you'll have a great time!

Review: Great trails! This is where I learned how to really ride trails. There is something here for everyone to ride; XC, wood features, drops, dirt jumps(wood tabletops and pro dirt doubles) and a pump track.
