“This ride features the biggest bang for your buck; epic ocean views with the most diversity of trail features and flow.”— Riley Seebeck
Family Friendly Climbs are not too intense and offer plenty of wildlife and views.
These are multi-use trails. Be aware of hikers as well.
From there, you pass through covered forest with banked corners and armored rock creek crossings. The entire trail system is groomed for smooth straights but still offers the natural rocky terrain in spots. The mellow, gradual climbs plateau to banked corners and flowing ascents. Often you don't feel like you are gaining elevation.
As you cross trails to Punta Guachipelines, switchbacks are your hardest challenge on this ride but boast the most epic views of the oceans and islands surrounding Las Catalinas. Your suffering was not in vain, you've reached the top!
After reaching the top and having a full 360° view of the ocean and mountains, you can either head down the same way you came up (boasting the best downhill in the area) or continue on to link up with the connector heading back to connect with Principal and down to the beach!
