The Trail wasn't built by some college kids, it was built by one guy. It's set-up to be pretty fast, very snakey with a lot of berms, few platform-drop/roll-ins, wide ladder-bridge ramps & teeters. There's no extreme FreeRide stuff there; the ladder-bridge stuff is set-up to enhance the FLOW of the trail. The original, main trail runs along the river. The old, new-trail is on the other side of the jeep-road. The new, new-trail is marked and will be cut & cleared by Fall with the intention of being an all-rider-skill-level trail allowing for the original trail to be marked for intermmediate/advanced riders only.
Other recommended trails in the same area:
The only other trails in the immediate area are in White Springs, FL...Suwannee Bike Association is there and has a website. Pretty regular north Florida XC-trails...my opinion, they didn't take adavantage of what Mother Nature had offered with the Suwannee River Bank terrain even close to what fun lines could have been cut there. Instead of bringing all the rolling-mounds and undulating terrain into play with a lot of winding, twisting, up & down single-track with drops, etc., they cut a lot of straight lines in between 'em?! The trails are more family-riders oriented which is a good thing!
We lost RazorBack-Trail in Ocala, FL this past year...SUX! AWESOME trail! So, Santos Trail in Ocala is the only big attraction single-track trail system left.
