“A fine tour of Fort Ord including the northern oak forests rarely seen by the Sea Otter racers.”— Darius Rike
Race - Apr 16, 2020
As usual the course takes you down Lookout Ridge Road but for the Cat 1 riders this year you get a tour of the northern part of Fort Ord and will be riding trails through Coast Live Oak, back around the north boundary of Fort Ord and around to a tough sandy (hike-a-bike) climb up Trail 22.
Youll drop down the beach, climb 82, do the full 49, climb up 42 (Red Rock) and then head out into the 70s. Youll drop down the Fern Trail (technically Trail 38) and then up 36 to Jacks Road and then up Upper Goat (Trail 41), drop down Ewok (Trail 43) to start your climb back to Laguna Seca via the grind (Pilarcitos Canyon Road).
Of course, just when you think youre done climbing, youll get diverted on Skyline Road for a bonus loop to drop down into Coach Canyon on Trail 47 and do the final climb out to Laguna Seca.
