Moderately rutted and dry, but easy to stay on trail, not overgrown. Started from Laguna Seca and went clockwise. Good flow at beginning and end, would ride again.

It's a surfing descent. So fun. The sand is thick and deep and really only meant to be descended. It will put a smile on your face.

3 sandy spots on the climb will be hike-a-bike for most people. Very dry.

Fast and flowy trail but tons of brake bumps! Too rough to be much fun downhill.

Boring paved road. Quick way out of the area though.

Trail Jack's Road
This is paved and steep. Avoid if you can.

South end of trail, off the main loop, is not clearly marked and often inaccessible. Would recommend bypassed and staying on main loop.

In previous years it's been at ~mile 10.4. On Skyline road just before the left turn onto trail 42. Very likely that's where it is this year.

Super fun. Fast n flowy with nice turns. Take caution on blind turns when going downhill to riders coming up. You can carry serious speed on the straight, wooded section. Another fav of mine.

Lots of holes and ruts from the rain. Can't ride fast.
