Start at Colinas Bluff and pedal up to the hidden watertower.
Drop in on Hole-In-One ( The right turn is for Centipede and the first left if for Edge and Ledge)
Take Hole-In-One down until it hits the fireroad. Hole-In-One is one of the oldest trails on the ridge and pretty much goes right down the ridge with very little traversing. It can become an ugly slide if you do not squeeze the front break. It's almost all dirt, so crashes usually aren't too bad.
Once you hit the fireroad, pedal over to Shea Trail and pedal up up up.
At the top turn left an head down Maggies Hill and turn hard left at the bottom onto a singletrack trail.
C-Drop starts flat, but it is the steepest trail on the ridge. You pass the giant cement C in the dirt, and then it gets even steeper.
C-Drop ends at the fireroad, and you have the option of pedaling back up Shea Trail, but I usually pass.
Pedal back to the hillside travers trail at the bottom of Cliffhanger and head back up to where you started.
If you still have energy left when you get back to the car you can do another loop on Hole-In-One.
This time turning left at the bottom and taking the steep way back.
