“The 2016 NICA SoCal HS League lap of the Los Olivos race course.”
— Jonah Dinger
Mostly singletrack all the way around with a steep climb near the beginning. After that, it is mostly rolling and flowy singletrack.
Need to Know
This was the course for the 2016 NICA NorCal/SoCal California State Championships.
This course is a great loop option inside the Los Olivos Dirt Club! It starts on a long straight dirt road through the parking area, then hits NASCAR
, a singletrack running up past a vineyard. The trail runs up Double Anal Chain Lube
, a very steep climb up to Ridgeline
on the ridge above. The ridge section is rolling singletrack with some occasional bumpy sections.
Next, the course runs into Water Tower - Magic Mike's Connector
, a fire road leading to Magic Mike's
, which is a super twisty singletrack downhill! At the bottom, the singletrack dumps you out into Fire Road Connector
, leading to XC DH
, which is a fast section of singletrack running under a neat-looking overhanging oak tree.
The course then breaks off to the right on a very bumpy doubletrack, leading to the bottom of Elm Street. After that, it zig-zags into the fenced area and into the finish under the large oak tree.
