Mountain Biking Canal Diggings

A short fun trail. OMBA does a great job using the old canal diggings. Very short loop but there is a bunch of stuff to play around with. Some nice quick elevation changes and some twisty singletrack.

    Fun, flowy trail, albeit a bit short. Still fun nonetheless.

    Short but awesome trail accessed at the 49th Ave TH. Definitely worth riding, especially if tying in with Nayls. Lots of short, punchy hills.

    Short and Quick. But very enjoyable. Intermediate ride.

    Under ridden trail in the Santos system. Just off the 49th Avenue TH, it is slightly over a mile but full of twists and a couple of climbs at the end of the loop.

    ** Rerouting by the OMBA crew added some bench cuts. The fun factor on this trail has been greatly increased. Don't miss it if you are around the 49th Avenue TH.

    A cool little trail in the Christmas section of Santos. Short and sweet. There are some quick elevation changes and some stuff you can play on.
