This trail is a lung buster. the trail is comprised of climbs and decents that will test you fitness level. The downhills are fast and fun and the climbs are steep for Florida. It is located behind Tung Nut and Hammock Hub

    This is the most challenging trail in the San Felasco system. Constant elevation change makes it a great trail. It is hard due to the steep climbs, but not too technical. This trail is not to be missed, and one of the best in the Gainesville area!

    A bit more challenging than some of the other sections, but nothing overwhelming. Climbs are lengthened out so they are not too steep. Likewise the DH portions are fun but no drops to be found. Great trail for a fit intermediate rider. Don't let the expert rating keep you off this section.

    I believe this is the toughest trail out here. Challenging but a lot of fun. Quads will burn on climbs and plenty of speed on decent. Many roots also add to the challenge.

    I go to this trail to gauge my fitness level. Lots of climbing and decending. I love the downhills on this trail. The best i have ridden in Florida.
