Mountain Biking Sinkhole

*****   Add a review
#24 of 282 mountain bike trails in Florida

Probably the least technical red at Santos, however, faster and longer than the rest. It's sits real close to the trailhead with little elevation changes, semi-technical switchbacks and has several short climbs and a number of somewhat technical rock sections. It's situation between two blue trails, Marshmallow and Dr. Ruth acting as a great, technical connector.

    This is probably the easiest red trail at Santos, but don't let that fool you. There are many rock gardens to traverse, and it is a good step up from the intermediate trails. What makes it easier than other reds, is that there is not significant elevation changes.

    Good trail to try before stepping up to the tougher red trails in the Santos system. Just short of a fun mile with plenty of technical stuff without climbs or drops found elsewhere. Great practice trail for intermediate riders with enough rock gardens, ledges, roots and switchbacks to help increase skills. Could be rated as "dark blue".

    A lot of rock gardens to get some practice on. This is the easiest red trail in Santos but you will still need some skills to ride thru the whole thing. It’s a good trail to master if you want to step up from the blue trails without wrecking constantly.

    Although red, it's not super technical, but really fun and fast. Has some really fun rocky sections that you can just blast through and a number of short fun climbs. Fun red to start on!
