“Fast and flowy trail southwest of the Sierra Vista Trail: Dripping Springs Rd. to Soledad Canyon Rd”
— MTB Project Staff
This is a fun loop below the Sierra Vista Trail
: Dripping Springs Rd. to Soledad Canyon Rd trail. You can get to it from either the Dripping Springs Rd or Soledad Canyon Rd Trailheads to the Sierra Vista Trail
. There is also a short access trail off of Dripping Springs Rd about 1/3 mile after you pass the cattleguard that will pop you out onto the lower portion of the loop (NW corner on the map here - where the start/stop icons are).
The trail itself is well built and pretty smooth and fast. The cutoff in the middle gives a nice opportunity for a figure-8. This is a great trail for introducing new riders to mountain biking, and I've ridden it with kids as young as 8 who had a great time.
