Family Friendly Scenic, easy to get to, and featuring easy trails, this is a great option for families.

Overview

This shorter route is a great way to reach the top of a moderate hill and enjoy views of the surrounding area. The route is mostly made up of smooth doubletrack, so this is the perfect spot for those who are still getting comfortable on a bike!

Description

This trail starts at the intersection of Via Cerro Rebel and Via Montoya, and ends on top of Patriot Hill at the flagpole. It is all smooth fire road with gradual climbing. There can be many hikers so be mindful and respectful. You can find plenty of more desirable singletrack from this trail that are much more fun to ride a bike on. The singletrack in this area is not very long but it is very fun, and there are some nice (big) jumps scattered throughout this area. This is also a great area for cyclocross or beginner mountain bikers.
