Datsun Alley Details
Datsun Alley is one of the main trail "highways" through Halfmoon Bay. It is an easy trail for riding with just a couple of loose, rocky areas to navigate. Otherwise it is wide and fairly smooth.
Several trails join Datsun Alley. Rollercoaster which brings you up from the Sargeant Bay area ends at Datsun Alley as does Little Knives, which links you to several other trails and takes you up to Trout Lake. Pick It up, which starts at Connor Park connects to it as does Pterodactyl and Woodpecker.
Datsun Alley ends at Gord's Grunt which will take you down to Redrooffs just past Cooper's Green or up to Hwy. 101 at the old pump house.
A nice, fairly easy ride for beginners is to park down at Redrooffs where the trail starts for Triangle Lake and ride straight up the trail from there. Take the third right which puts you on Rollercoaster. Follow Rollercoaster up and past the pond keeping left until you come to the end. At this point you have to turn left or right and there is a sign post with arrows to Trout Lake, Cooper's Green, etc. Go left here heading towards Cooper's Green until Datsun Alley ends at Gord's Grunt. Turn right to head up Gord's Grunt towards the Highway, but take the first right you come to. This will be Woodpecker. Stay on Woodpecker (don't exit onto Fork Off) and you will come back out to Datsun Alley. Go left back towards Sargeant Bay and take the third right back onto Rollercoaster, then left back down to your car. The hardest part of this ride is Woodpecker and although rated as More Difficult (Intermediate) it is probably one of the easier in that category. This ride will probably take you between 1 and 2 hours depending on your skill and fitness level.
