“This is a great loop that will introduce you to the trails in this system.”— michael quinones
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
The trails here are not too technical or gnarly. The climbs are all on fire roads except for small areas of the Sheep Corral Trail. After the initial climb on Palo Comado Canyon Trail, it is pretty flat for the rest of the time. There are lots of signs marking where you are.
Need to Know
Shortly after, you'll meet up with the Sheep Corral Trail, which has a small entry to it on the right and is marked with a sign. Follow that up, staying towards the left at the beginning. From there, it's some quick switchbacks that are easy breezy. Once you get into the valley, it's all singletrack for a while.
This is where you get pretty remote until you link up with the Las Virgenes Canyon Fire Road. If you get tired, you can cut out early onto the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail or Cheeseboro Ridge Trail, both will take you back to the parking lot.
If you're looking to complete the loop, continue on the Sheep Corral Trail to where it meets with the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Trail. After following this doubletrack for a while, you'll eventually meet back up with the Cheeseboro Ridge and Las Virgenes Canyon Connector, which will then take you to the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail and your car.
