High Point

The best way to ride Walker Ranch is via the main trailhead (not the Ethel Harrold trailhead). During this loop, prepare for fast fun descents followed by brutal climbs and an impressive (albeit annoying) hike a bike right in the middle of the ride.

The loop follows a single trail the whole way with signage to guide you along. The most important section to note during this ride is the massive hike a bike rock stair section that leads down to South Boulder Creek.
