Description

Lower Romero is rocky and technically challenging singletrack that follows and crosses Romero Creek. It can be ridden as a short loop climbing the Romero Fore Road or as a longer ride with the Upper Romero singletrack.

The beginning of Lower Romero is fast and flowing with a few rocks and quickly gets into several technical rock gardens. Pick your line and pick it quick. A continuous grove of gnarled oak trees lives throughout this section, almost to the end where your adrenaline will be surging and your legs and arms will be on fire.

Mostly flowly blue with a couple short chunky sections that could be considered black. Super fun downhill.
