Update

A challenging climb to rolling open space with a steep descent and short road ride back to the car.

Lance Buck

Overview

The first mile is a challenging 750' climb followed by 6 miles of rolling hills and open country. There are some very nice views once you hit the ridge; which has a couple steep but short climbs. Then, the ridge drops toward the confluence of Cache Creek and Bear Creek. The last 2.5 miles of highway bring you back to your car.
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Bear creek can run high after rainfall. Additionally, the soil is unrideable within 2 weeks of rain!

Description

Start by crossing Bear Creek; you can go around, as the map shows, but it is an ordeal. The switchbacks are all rideable, but can be a bit of a challenge if you're not in shape. Once on top, the trail passes a frog pond and opens up to doubletrack. After crossing the ridge and rolling down hill to a three way intersection; take a hard left and head downhill. Eventually, you climb out onto Cache Creek Ridge and benefit from views of the creek far below. Follow the Ridge west dropping steeply back down to cross Bear Creek and ride the highway back to your start at the High Bridge parking area.
