Mountain Biking Rollercoaster

*****   Add a review
#41 of 285 mountain bike trails in Florida
#1,626 in the world

One of the Red (advanced) trails at Carter Road. The name pretty much says it all. Quick ups and downs. Surprising for a Florida Trail. One option you can take has a crazy STEEP slope you can go down. It's almost like looking down a wall when you're at the top of it. Overall, this trail is pretty short. It is more of a link trail.

    The map shown here is for Carter Rd MTB trials of which Roller coaster is a part. Shout out to these trailbuilders, i belive is the Ridgeriders, for a very challenging technical ride with tons of wood features. Only negative was lots of patches of loose sand

    Awesome little trail! Had a blast on this the last time I was at Carter Road. It is short, but it packs a wallop. Quick climbs and descents, and it seems a little less technical than the fingers. I haven't been able to make myself go down the crazy steep slope yet. Watch out for other riders on this trail as it criss-crosses with a blue trail in some parts.
