Found this spot today, with about 30 miles of shady well marked trails. Most people were on bicycles and I enjoyed seeing them on the nearby trails. The orange trail was suggested for hikers. Large pines, live oaks with moss, along a cozy, sandy trail with large roots (watch your step). Friendly walkers here and there, and best part -... More

Miles and miles of hard packed shady trails which are hard to find in Florida. If you love riding mountain bikes come and play for awhile. Bring lots of water and a snack as you can ride all day. Lots of technical trails too for the more adventurous rider.

Santos Bike Shop 8924 US-441, Ocala, FL 34480 GREAT riding at the Santos/Vortex area near Ocala. We stayed within the main cluster of trails but there is 80+ miles of fun, fast singletrack overall in this area. And the only reason there’s probably any elevation at all is because of the wooden ramps built along the way, which are a... More

We loved staying at the quiet campground and biking the well maintained trails in the adjoining forest. Rented bikes at the bikestore right at the gate of the campsite.

Hiked to land bridge. Well marked. Scenic with lots of old oaks. 1.1 miles to the land bridge. Minimal difficulty with negotiation of the trail.

We rented bikes at the Santos Bike Shop, which is adjacent to trail access and a great place to try out suspension trail bikes. Scenery is beautiful. The trails and ramps, etc. were in amazingly good shape and work is performed by volunteers. This was our first time and there are plenty of yellow trails for beginners, as well as... More

For bikers or hikers. Lots of shade and some great trails. Be careful of which bike trails you choose. Some are a bit rough and for bikes made to take the roots and rocks. But very much fun. When I went there were horseflesh. And they sure BITE.
