Found this information on the FLAMTBErs forum. Some of you remember Gran Canyon - not too far from Croom #3. Looks it's coming back!

I (RRMBA) was contacted by Hernando Co a time ago to be part of this exciting new project and I have been talking with the powers that be along the way and we are getting closer and they told me it was ok to let the cat out of the bag and spread the word.
Thatís right!! The rumors are true. The wheels are in motion to bring Gran Canyon back. Of course we need support from the cycling
community to get involved to help bring back one of the best trails in Florida. As many may recall the Gran Canyon is where it all started in the mid 80ís and some of the first MTB races in Fl were held there.
Hernando County has moved forward in looking at options for
obtaining the land and implementing a MTB park which will include XC trails as well as a Free Ride and Dirt Jump area.
How can you help???
For now we need everyone in the cycling community to let Hernando County know of our enthusiasm and impact of the reopening as well as the draw of mountain bikers to the area.
