“Some fun singletrack mixed with lots of fire road.”— Doug Seybert Jr
Peel off to the first singletrack you see on the left, Coyote Run, for a fun little shortcut. Be sure to catch the fork to the right, or else you'll cut the whole back half of the ride out.
Once back to the fire road, take a left and you'll blast down a fast open fire road with lots of chunk. At the bottom of the chunky downhill you'll hang a right and roll through an open meadow on yet more fire road.
Hang a left where the gnarly rutted fire road crosses over the creek through the trees. You can keep going straight here and follow it around, but it's just more fire road. On the other side of the creek you'll turn right on the fire road, followed shortly by a left. This is where the climbing fun begins!
The first short climb is the toughest. Very steep and fairly technical. Once you reach the top of that, it transitions into a nice long steep, but non-technical climb. At this point you can either take a break, or press on and go for the trifecta. You'll follow the trail up a gradual climb around two rights and a left before reaching the final short, steep, technical climb. This one's not as tough as the first in principal, but after the first two it can be tough to make it up without dabbing, especially if you didn't take a break at the top of the second hill.
Now it's time for some more downhill! Hang a left at the next fire road and then a right on the Burnt Mountain singletrack. Like the last one, this trail is short but it's really fun to bomb down quickly. At the bottom of BM, hang a left and head over to the Bobcat downhill blast.
This is one of the longest downhills of the ride, and you can really carry some good speed through here, just watch out for the chunk scattered sporadically through the trail. After bombing down Bobcat you're treated to yet another tough fire road climb. This is a long, steep, sometimes techincal climb, that is sure to suck any energy you have left. But it's okay, because after all of the climbing you get to bomb down the Crest Trail to the paved La Honda road. Hang a right on the pavement and take a short climb to the crest, then roll down back to the parking lot.
