Description

This is a close competitor for the singletrack with the best scenery in the bay area. This trail has it all, ocean views, close contact with huge redwoods, fern canyons and creeks.

One the the best flowing singletrack trails, Whittemore Gulch Trail gives you that "I'm like a Jedi, flying between the redwoods" feel. It is not very technical, fantastically flowy.

Vantage point from the first shaded area of trail before coming out to the dry section, which starts with a bit of crevasses and rocks that will lead you into the trail in sight, on the left.

Beautiful views on a nice day. I'm not super experienced and was able to make it down with a hardtail, a few tight turns to be careful around.

Trail a little overgrown with thistle! Prickly in places

A couple small wet spots toward the bottom but otherwise pretty dry conditions. Probably going to close soon for the season with rain on the way.
