“A wide fire road loop - don't forget to ride the little terrain park at the end!”— Johnny Yip
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
ADA Accessible ADA parking is available in the parking lot, but access might be a bit tricky to the trail as the lop from the road drops off pretty steeply on the far side from the parking lot.
The highlight of the route is the terrain park at the far end. Not steep enough to catch big air but you can definitely do jumps and tricks on it.
Most of the route is exposed so don't forget to pack some water on a hot day. Watch out for hikers.
