I told you you'd like Santos Trail. Of all the places I've ridden, it's one of my favorites!
Glad you had a good time, and yes, it gets hot! Bring lots and lots of water.
What was your favorite trail? I personally like leaving the parking area and hitting "Sink Hole Trail" to start, then getting on the Yellow trail to "The other side" and doing the 3 blue trail out and backs, then "The Vortex" which is where that huge drop is. I like riding "the Vortex" two or three times, trying to get through it without stopping or putting a foot down. Then we start back to the truck via "The Bunny Trail" and "Termite Trail" coming to the south side of the pit and then back around through "Cow Pen". We then stop for lunch and a little nap, do a shorter 2nd ride, come back rest some more and then do one more short ride!
We sometimes will camp over in the Ocala Nat'l Forest and skip the 3rd ride, go get something to eat and come back for a night ride! That's a blast! The same trails at night are completely different in the dark!
Let me know next time you guys are planning on going. Maybe I can get my wife and a small group together to meet you guys.
