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.

Lots of miles of trails for all skill levels. Hardly any elevation change. Very well maintained. From what I've been told the best in Florida.

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.

This is one of those places distant visitors like me plan to visit not really knowing how it will turn out. This is one of those rare times when a place exceeded my expectations. Santos comes highly recommended in the Mountain Biking community and I can say it is well deserved. In fact, I think Santos is a Florida Natural... More

Had a little family outing here for a couple of days and in my opinion this kind of place is what we need a lot more of. Skip the theme parks and take your family to Santos for some real outdoor exercise and experiences. There are trails to hike on and trails to bike on and all of them are... More

Not the typical long, flat trails of Florida. A great mix of everything here. It's worth a 4 hour drive. Stopped at the bike shop and they hooked me up with some great deals and even sell beer😉😉😉

Came up to try the trail from Tampa and thought it was outstanding. Great place to ride and get back into nature.
