All told well over 120 miles of single track within fifty miles of Tampa. Most of it is pretty flat and even the finest of of our trails have no net elevation change. So that series of drops you saw in the vids means pedaling like a maniac up each rise.

These are all maintained by the local club and they do just an amazing job. Cannot thank SWAMP enough. Check out their site.
Actually SWAMP no longer maintains Alafia trails. It is a group called Friends of Alafia. Some of them are also SWAMP members, and some are ex SWAMP members.
