This trail loops around the Vortex section of Santos. It is a beginner’s trail that flows nicely and you can really get some good speed going. There are really no elevation changes that are a challenge and the trail is mostly free of obstacles.

    Mellow trail that runs around the vortex area. Nothing too difficult, but a scenic trail worth riding.

    Along with Pine Tree trail, this is the most perfect spot for all beginners. Get some miles on nice, safe trails while having fun.
