A nice loop on the east side of Figueroa mountain.

Overview

The White Rock loop is a good intermediate ride. It features a mellow paved climb with beautiful views of the Santa Ynez Valley followed by fun, twisty and relatively non-technical singletrack.

Need to Know

Avoid this one when wet. The trail surface turns into some of the most sticky mud you'll find anywhere. Much of this trial is on the north side of the ridge so mud can persist longer than one may think.

Trail does not see much of use and can be bushy at times.

Description

Park in the large dirt parking area on the SE corner of the 4 way junction at the top of Cachuma Saddle. From the saddle, follow the paved Figueroa Mountain road uphill for just shy of 3.5 miles. The road climbs continuously but never very steeply. Views to the south of the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Ynez mountains quickly take your breath away. Use caution on the road, especially on spring weekends, as this is a popular area for spring wildflower viewing.

The large dirt pull out at the top of the hill makes a great place to stand up, have a snack and drop your seat for the descent. Start down the dirt East Pinery Road keeping a sharp eye to the right for the beginning of the white rock trail.

Drop down the white rock trail twisting and turning your way through a mixture of meadows and shrubs. (See White Rock Trail description for specifics)

The end of the White Rock Trail puts you back on the paved Sunset Valley Road. Take a right and spin uphill for about a half mile until you're back at the car.
