Need to Know
Please keep out of fenced off areas and old mine ruins/quarries. Trails are clearly marked. Please do not trail blaze or freeride. We have explicit permission from the property manager to construct and maintain trails here. Don't ruin it for everyone else and be "that guy".
Take your time and enjoy the scenery. You can get a fairly decent workout in a short ride or a few loops. The most common route is Aimee's Loop to Carcass Cutoff to Jane's Loop around to Warrior Loop then the new NICA section which wraps back around to the west and then Mifflin Loop. Any of them can be ridden in either direction so watch for traffic. Local route clue: From the northern most point of Mifflin Loop, head southwest through the g-outs and watch for a sharp left turn. If you keep left, you can catch a technical rocky section down through a ravine, keep right and you'll end up on the high speed run down the hill. Either way is the payoff for all of your hard work climbing. Have fun!
Night rides on these trails are also a BLAST. Check out our FB page to see when our next one is scheduled.
If you are coming in from out of town I highly recommend you make a day of it and visit Red House BBQ, The Shed, or TK Pizza. They not only support us, but they also have GREAT FOOD and CRAFT BEER.
If you need help with your bike while you're in our quaint little town, look no further than Cycle N Go at 121 East F Street, in downtown Tehachapi. Marvin Amato is a fantastic mechanic and he's VERY reasonable. He also has bikes for rent if you need a whip for your friend to thrash around for a day.
We host several major events annually. The SoCal NICA finals are held here every May or April. Next year (2019) we may be hosting the STATE FINALS!!! Seesocaldirt.org for event info and details. Every October we have our annual Tehachapi MTB Brewfondo! This year's event will be October 20th. In December, we host a PedalFest series endurance event, The Santa Claus Gran Prix. It's a 6 hour mountain bike endurance race that can be accomplished solo or as a two person team. Check our website (www.tehachapitrails.com) for details and entry fees.
