There are three parts to this ride. The first part leads you down to the bridge over the San Joaquin River and up to a junction. This part is very heavily used by hikers and equestrians and requires a lot of care on your part to avoid surprising them. The second part is mostly an old dirt road that is trying to revert to a wide singletrack, but is having trouble doing so because of erosion problems. Third, you’ll ride a narrow, class 3+ singletrack that sees little use. If you ride the loop clockwise, you can take the narrow, technical singletrack downhill. Warning: This singletrack minimally requires very well-developed intermediate technical skills. It’s not a ride for beginning singletrackers! Highlights: Views of the San Joaquin River canyon, wildflowers in spring, technical and narrow singletrack. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trails.
