    Santos Trails (Video & Writeup)

    Here's a piece on Santos from a first timer, with some video and an epiphany on finding flow.

    Good read and vid.

    Most of the people who like to bag on FL trails have never ridden them. That is one of my favorite rides in the state. Thanks for posting

    Great writeup. Yes, the FLOW is what I love.

    Yes. There are many ways to combine the trails with several trail heads. The far "ends" of the system have the most interesting stuff if you are looking for fewer miles. Check the maps from OMBA. The main trail head has the most facilities including a bike shop across the street.

    Thanks Pedal.

    I second what pedal/paddle suggested. The far end (southwest corner) had the most interesting stuff and you can easily lengthen/shorten your loop by using the other trails in the area.

    For all that we saw on our ride, there's still alot of the more technical stuff that we didn't even touch. I can't wait to go back.

    Nice write up!! Glad you enjoyed.

    JFYI, we completed an additional ~ 3 miles of trails yesterday on the far west end of the system past SR200. There will eventually be about 8 miles of yellow and about 2 miles of blue trail in that area. The new trail needs tires on it!
