John Nicholas Details
From Black Road to the reservoir this is a dirt road, but from the reservoir up to Skyline this is one of the premiere maintained singletrack rides in the Bay Area. Purpose built by Santa Clara County as a bicycle connector trail - also used by hikers. Surface is smooth enough and often used by CX bikes, and even the more adventurous road biker. The gradient is only steep in one or two short sections.
