Overview

This is a great ride within Santa Barbara with two good singletrack climbs, and lots of flowing downhill singletrack.

Need to Know

This loop is best accessed from the parking lot of Cliff Drive.

Description

To access this ride, park at the lot off Cliff Drive. Take the singletrack trail off the driveway but be ready for a short, steep descent around the first blind corner. Keep your speed and hit a nice jump along Frontage Rd, and then prepare for a long singletrack climb. Cut off the singletrack at the main road to get extra downhill.

Take a u-turn at the lookout benches and go for a great flow ride down until the washboard before a hard right. Push to the road to start the second climb. Have fun taking the flat switchbacks across the mesa, and then hit the south side downhill and run it out at top speed to the finish line.

A lot of poison oak, otherwise decent place to get a quick ride in to start day. Able to make loops which makes riding better.
