JP is a Merritt must ride. From the edge of Midday Valley Road, twist and turn through the lush forest, dipping down to a quietly flowing creek, then up a short climb to the top of the ridge and back down again with flow that is singletrack perfection. Once back at Midday Valley Road, take Cross Cut to Sanchez to the parking lot.
