This ride gives you a great tour of Reimers Ranch and takes you out into the awesome backcountry areas that most folks don't get the chance to take in. This ride utilizes rugged jeep trails and multi-use doubletrack and is usually open and completely rideable even when the designated mountain bike trails are closed. This ride drains off and dries quick after rains, so its nearly always open/rideable.
A great ride for intermediate and advanced riders who want to get some cardio burn miles in without too many technical features. The ride is 'intermediate' level as the doubletrack can get a bit technical in a few spots and you'll need to be in good physical condition to complete the ride comfortably.
A big portion of the ride has open sun exposure so be sure to use sun protection and have plenty of hydration.
