Nice singletrack through the Saratoga Gap Open Space Preserve that you'll wish is longer!

Description

Park at the lot on the south side of Skyline Blvd and Hwy 9 intersection, the trailhead is across the road on the north side of Skyline. If you show up early, there are a few spots available right outside of the trailhead.

The trail is entirely singletrack and eventually spits you back out onto Skyline Blvd. Then you can cross the road and enter Long Ridge Open Space Preserve, or simply turn around and ride down all the sections that you earned earlier.

Fun ride. Lots of mud this time round. Added a new element to an old favorite.

Getting forecast...

Used to be a great technical trail, but trail management system paved over much of what made the trail interesting to the skilled rider. Still a fun connector to Long Ridge Preserve, which is still untouched by pavement, for the time being.... Dec 21, 2016
