Chunky, loose, and fast, Botanical is a classic San Luis Obispo trail. Upper half (before intersection with Morning Glory) is covered with small pebbles, baby-head sized rocks, and rain ruts, however, it's pretty easy to get going really fast, just make sure you have some tough tires! Difficulty is in between a blue and a black, definitely harder than other blue trails in the area.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
