You'll love the views - maybe not the ride.

Description

This trail is often ridden as a loop, in either direction, by connecting with the Seaborg Trail (formerly Homestead Valley Trail). Most of the "trail" is a fire road that circles the Bear Creek watershed along the ridge tops. As a fire road, not a "trail", it often rises and falls too steeply to be comfortable for bikers, hikers or even horses especially after it rains. The views are great and a good excuse to stop and catch your breath at the top of peaks. Several trails, such as Old Briones Road Trail, branch off to shorten the loop.
