overview

Description:

Stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River, the Cross Florida Greenway occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Barge Canal. Several multi-use trails pass by communities such as Ocala, Belleview, Palatka, Inglis and Dunnellon. The greenway includes America's first land bridge, a wildlife crossing over Interstate 75 just south of Ocala. The land bridge is one of the first multi-use bridges of its kind, landscaped with native vegetation, including longleaf pine, sandhill and sand live oak. The greenway offers an array of trails and recreation areas for all visitors.

The Santos area offers more than 50 miles of trails with three levels of difficulty available to accommodate beginners to experts. The Santos trailhead draws riders from all over the state and country to experience an Epic Ride, an elite list of 43 trails throughout the country described by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) as "the best in mountain biking." In addition, the IMBA recently named the Santos Mountain Bike Trails a bronze-level Ride Center, meaning that it is destination-worthy and offers somethiing for every rider.
