“This technically demanding trail leaves the redwood forest to cut through a small manzanita grove.”
— Megan W
The Manzanita Trail
is one of the prime trails of this park. Traversing it in this north to south direction, makes it almost completely downhill. This is an enjoyable way to ride, but you'll pay for all that downhill later! The trail surface is rutted and rocky in some sections making for more technically challenging riding.
provides some switchbacks, some sandpits, some sunshine, sandstone, rocky trail obstacles, and portions of trail that look more like a creek bed. (The Manzanita Trail
was improved in 2011 to remove a hazardous section.) The trail ends at a T-junction with the Timberview Trail
