Trail shared by Gregg Brotman

A great route through Calavera Preserve on some curvy singletrack with fun downhills.

Overview

This ride follows a series of fun loops and short connector trails. The terrain is sandy chaparral, with curvy singletrack and some fun downhill sections. You'll find a mostly hard-packed tread on all the trails.

Need to Know

This is closed at the south end near Sage High School to bikes. There are signs everywhere that they put up in January 2018.

Description

Park along Tamarack Ave when you see the gate and dam down the hill. Enter the preserve by going around the gate, and then head straight down across the dam. Follow the full track using the MTB Project mobile app for the best continuous loop, but you can shortcut back and eliminate subsequent loops. The shortest loop would be simply going around the lake only.

You can also park at the corner of College and Cannon and access the trail that's in front of the high school. The trailhead is right at the northeast corner of that intersection.

I have a fun 10k ride I do and a 5k ride. There are lots of choices for easy, flatland and harder, up-and-down routes.
