Overview
Ride on singletrack around the Forest Service office interpretive trails. Then get access to the forest service roads to ride up to the top of Smith Peak for an excellent view of the surrounding Groveland, CA area. Park right at the forest service or leave from the Penny Pines campground. Fun flowy singletrack and great views!
Need To Know
Watch out for poison oak.
Description
Start at the Forest Service Office or at the campground. Stop inside the Forest Service Office and talk to the front desk for more information. Right before the campground, turn right onto singletrack trails that are clearly marked. Circle a loop and then go over a wooded board walk to gain access to a Forest Service road that you'll climb up to get to the top of Smith Peak. There's a lookout tower at the top of the peak that's off limits to non-government personnel, but you can still get great views of the surrounding area. From there, you can choose many different Forest Service roads to continue your ride, or go back the way you came for a quick ride.
