Summary:
Best xc trails in Florida, with Nayl's to Ern n' Burn, out and back. This is the most fun, flowy, and uninterrupted mountain bike enjoyment in the state. Great job OMBA! Best fun on 2 wheels and dirt, you will smile for miles.

Recommended Route:
From 49th st, Nayl's west, stop for a rest at 484 and cross the road for Ern' N' Burn. When you hit the end of Ern' n' Burn after the Ravine Chicane, where it connects with beyond and the yellow access trail to Ross Prairie, you can turn around and do Ern' n' Burn backwards to Nayl's East for a fast smooth cooldown. Canal Diggings at the end for a short fun challenge after you catch your breath. Approx 18 Miles.

Summary:
The 49th Avenue trails are a part of the Santos trail system, maintained by the Ocala Mountain Bike Association volunteers (omba.org). These trails are mostly shady, flat, fast and twisty - good for an aerobic workout. Nayl's Trail is more of a roller coaster ride with some tricky technical spots.

See OMBA's new maps at http://omba.org/index.php/Maps.html, especially our new Google Maps: http://tinyurl.com/omba-49th

Recommended Route:
The Land Bridge Trailhead is a good starting point for family-type rides: shaded picnic area, restrooms, easy trails close by, close to the scenic Land Bridge.

If you just want to do the harder trails, Nayl's and Canal Diggings, you might want to start from the 49th Avenue Trailhead.

The Santos Trailhead offers a wide variety of trails from easy to insane, a freeride area, dirt-jumps and 2 pump tracks.

Summary:
A lot of work has been going on with the trail system, so almost all of the trails are in excellent riding shpe. the Ocala Mountain Bike Association along with OGT has been working very hard to maintain the trails. There is something for everyone at santos, from kids on training wheels to the extreme freeride guys, and all bikes in between.

Recommended Route:
Yellow = easy
Blue = intermediate
Red = expert
Black Diamond and above = you are an adrenaline junkie

Other recommended trails in the same area:
We have several trailheads to choose from, so have fun.

Summary:
We camped at santos and had a great time riding the newwork there. We met a dude from OMBA that told us to got to the 49th street TH and go under the bidge to the left then look to the right for nayls trail. YEAH BUDDY that trail is sweet. quite a bit of up and downs I didn't come across to much man made obsticles, but the natural terrain seems to be good enough. I will return as soon as possible!! Great Job OMBA and thank you Gary H.

Recommended Route:
we headed out on the blue and came back on the yellow.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Excellent trail for the XC specialist. I like singletrack, but prefer the red trails and quarries at Santos, Markham Park in Miami, and Quiet Waters in Miami. These trails are great for those who want to ride a nice network of XC trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Santos of course, Razorback
