A great route through Calavera Preserve, curvy singletrack and fun downhills.”
— Joe Caruso
This is a set of three fun loops you can do as a contiguous ride, or shortcut if you like. Terrain is sandy chaparral, with curvy singletrack and some fun downhill sections.
There are plenty of runners, hikers, and other bikers coming the other way on these trails, so watch ahead of you!
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 for the best continuous loop, but you can shortcut back by eliminating the further loops. The shortest loop would be simply going around the lake only.
