Be respectful of golfers on the Craig Wood Golf Course. The trails are closer to the course than you think.

This route is a great introduction to the trails in Scott's Cobble and Craig Wood.

Park in the trailhead lot for Scott's Cobble. A short section of trail ends at the Jack Rabbit (double track). Take a left and look for the Scott's Cobble trail on the right. Climb up to the connector trail that heads over to Craig Wood. Don't worry if you see the flow trail and start to get FOMO. You'll snag that one on the way back. Take the Connector over to Air & Stone and head right. A brief climb will get you to the top of 19th Hole (one of the best downhills ever). Take that to the bottom and head left back up hill to the top of Poppa Wheelie. Hit the wooden drop, or don't - you'll have fun either way. Poppa Wheelie merges with the bottom of 19th Hole so repeat the same left turn and climb as before. This time keep climbing (you're paying for that fun you had earlier). Head right to the start of Air & Stone for some excellent little rock rolls and hang a right down the steep berm for a big boulder rock roll. Pedal yourself back to the connector trail and head back over to Scott's Cobble.

Pass the flow trail and head up the climbing trail to the top of the flow trail. Rip down all the way back to the Jack Rabbit and turn left watching for the trail on right. On your way back out take a spin through Putt Putt which will be a left turn and deposit you back in the parking lot.

The climbs are mostly gentle save for a few punchy sections. Multiple laps are encouraged as long as your legs hold out. Depending on your climbing ability and how long you spend sessioning features this route should take around an hour.
