A hidden gem that few know about and fewer ride regularly. Good local trail if you live close by.

Description

This trail can be ridden either direction. The best way is to start on Grand Ave and to ride north. It also can be connected with other segments of the Schabarum Skyline Trail to make a longer point to point ride.

From Grand Ave, ride up the hill. As soon as you pass Hillside on the right, cross the street when clear and head up the steep singletrack. Lookout for poison oak, there are a few spots that it grows near this trailhead. Continue up the hill, and eventually the trail will join with a fireroad that goes a little bit further up hill. When you get to the top, hang a left (north) on the fireroad that turns to singletrack after a short uphill and then head down the singletrack. Get ready for a fast and fun downhill.

Toward the bottom the trail spits you out on a street in a neighborhood. Continue downhill for a couple of hundred yards, then look for the trail to start again on the right.

Although it is short, I would consider this a moderate to advanced ride due to the steepness and tight switchbacks.

Had fun on the trail. As stated in description has a crazy start with a burning incline. Not to technical, but watch out on down hill!
