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 sandThank |
Great trail system. This was my first ride and can't wait to go back.Thank |
Fun dips with nice flow.Thank |
I'm pretty sure you used a picture of gatorback fro Alafia on the coverThank |
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.Thank |
