A nice flow of singletrack that's fast but offers a few challenging sections

Cal Till

Overview

Helmets must be worn by cyclists and dogs must be on leashes.
The trail is generally ridden in a counter clockwise direction but is equally as fun ridden clockwise (just watch out for oncoming traffic).

Need to Know

The trail system has become more popular for hikers and dog walkers so pay attention to your surroundings as you're riding.

Description

This trail system is pretty simple to follow - it's very well-marked, and as a green trail, there isn't much to worry about along the way. Just cruise along as fast as you're comfortable and enjoy it!

To start a lap, you'll enter the trail on the right side of the pavilion and turn right up the short steep hill, from there, just follow the trail markings. There's a little bit of everything to keep the beginner and seasoned cyclists entertained.

History & Background

This trail was built in 1999 by a group of local cycling volunteers. The Children's Home has done a spectacular job of supporting our local cycling community by allowing us access to their property.

Was fine for 90% on a cross bike with 40c tires. Lots of fast flowy and fun singletrack. A couple sweet sections by the river, great trail. 8mi

Great trail and very interesting features but the mosquitoes are terrible in the summer! There is some running water features but there is a lot of stagnant water so wear plenty of repellent if you're hiking and move fast if you're biking. Jan 24, 2014

 
I used to live there and ride my motorcycle there almost 20 years ago when my parents we're teaching parents there. I'd like to think some of these trails were originally made by me, There are more trails across either creek and within a half mile from the entrance too! I had a Harley Davidson Golf Cart we used to go off roading with too... Fun memories! Jul 31, 2014
Trail is fast flowing, very well maintained, and not very technical/difficult to ride. Trail is now 9 miles long if you follow the entire thing, there are some portions that do not dry out well and will still be wet/muddy a week after a rain. I always enjoy this trail Feb 13, 2017
