This trail between Bayview Sequoia and Sunset Trail is a nice flowy downhill trail that, relatively speaking, is not overly technical nor steep. The trail can be very fast when ridden to potential. It has some jumps (all of which can be avoided), one relatively steep rock garden section that is not as rough as it looks (the potential black diamond portion), and BTCEB recently finished a reroute near the bottom that includes some tight turns (read switchbacks). If you visit Joaquin Miller Park this is a must ride trail. It is rated Black due to relative difficulty to other JMP blue trails.

       The erosion makes that “potential black diamond” section no joke... but it’s still manageable. Speed is your friend. Great trail. Switchbacks at the end require some nifty low speed bike handling.

       Great trail with some fun roughness and tight switchbacks at the end that will test your bike handling skills.

       The light rain has made Cinderella fast and mostly flowy. Go early and set a new PR before all the hikers.

       One star. Why on earth does anyone give this choss pile of a trail multiple stars? Don't get me wrong, I like steep technical downhill but this isn't it. "Flowy" someone says; are you insane? There is absolutely no flow to any trail in this entire park! "My favorite trail in the Bay Area"? Are you crazy? What trails do you ride? You say you're from Walnut Creek- any trail at Lime Ridge blows Cinderella out of the water. Not to mention Briones or Crockett Hills or even Fernandez Ranch.

      I rode Sequoia-Bayview to Cinderella then back up on Sunset then up Big Trees Inner then down Big Trees Outer. When there isn't rocks slowing you down there's roots or mud or hikers or uphill or no vision so you can't let loose and go fast. The one and only redeeming quality of the whole park is that you're under the trees most of the time so the uphills aren't too bloody hot. Glad I went here once so I don't have to ever go back.

       Thank you to the person(s) that polished up the jumps. Feels more like a proper DH track these days pretty rough over the holes and bumps but i love how rowdy it can get at speed.
