Description

The Madrone Trail stays approximately mid-mountain level and runs the length of Las Trampas Regional Park. It is accessible by bike from Las Trampas Road and Camille Ave in Alamo and from Del Amigo Road and Remington Drive in Danville.

Much of the ride is shaded as you ride around ridge faces to get to the canyons. But, there are great views several places along the way. While the slope of the road is reasonable, the terrain is surprisingly steep and rugged off the edge of the road.

Please note that some sections of this route are designated as hiking or hiking / horseback only. Sometimes this designation is indicated on trail maps - as seen by expanding the map at : ebparks.org/parks/las_trampas OR only on the signs at trail heads or trail junctions for these trails. Also: The trail just before (and to the left of) the big electric gate part way up Las Trampas Road is mostly very narrow and has several switchbacks; to the right of the big gate there is a smaller unlocked gate for hikers and bikers.

Jacques, I am glad you had a chance to ride the trail. Thanks for pointing out that there are area in Las Trampas that are not legal for bikes. I made sure that the descriptions and routes in the MTBProject entries for the Madrone Trail (which starts after the road ends) and the Las Trampas Madrone Loop (which includes Las Trampas Rd) are 100% legal. The dirt parts are all on fire roads and the road part skips the single track portion on goes around the gate up the road. Mike Aug 10, 2016
