Named after preparations to dig the abandoned Cross-Florida Barge Canal, Canal Diggings trail utilizes the up-and-down landscape to create a relatively short, but heart-pounding ride. Being in the same area, it is similar to Nayls and Ern-N-Burn, but shorter and tighter. Its flow has been improved as of June 2, 2018, and provides an excellent warmup ride. Canal Diggings is off of the Christmas trail, which is accessed from the 49th Avenue Trail Head.

Access Info

Santos Trail System, 49th Avenue Trail Head. Take the Christmas trail to get to Canal Diggings, which loops back to Christmas.
