“A great beginner/intermediate ride with nice views of the bay and a well-maintained trail.”— Shayne Holderby
This ride has great views of the bay and has a very wide, well maintained trail. This is an extremely high traffic trail but it's easy to pass in most areas. Watch out for tons of hikers, runners and walkers on the last three miles of the ride. The Bay View Trail (upper section) is used almost exclusively by mountain bikers.
The appeal of this trail is about 6 miles of rolling mostly downhill after the initial two mile climb. After about 1.5 miles of downhill singletrack you'll come up on a fire road. Follow down this road and you'll see several turns taking you back towards the Shoreline Trail - make sure you take the last turn for Oak Ridge Trail and the best ride.
Ignore any signs taking you to the Ridge Trail as this is nothing but a fire road running along the ridge (nice view). The last section of the Oak Ridge Trail has some narrow, slightly rocky singletrack before it joins back up with Peacock Gap Connector and then back to Shoreline Trail again.
Shoreline Trail is a nice scenic rolling singletrack with a 1/4 mile section of fire road taking you back to your start point.
