Fast, super fun, super flowy, mostly flat with one nice air time opportunity just after the entrance. Everyone wears a smile at the end of Live Oak. However, this trail sees some of the most novice foot traffic in the park due it's close proximity to the Glen Ranch entrance. Its not out of the question to see whole families in street clothes, pushing strollers up this trail that, to most bikers, looks tailor made for them. Be cautious

Access Info

Take the only single track on your left as you descend Serrano Rd. Or for an easy climb, pick it up from Raptor Rd, just down from the Glen Ranch parking lot.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 1 Rating: No obstacles exist. Wide enough. Can be ridden confidently solo.
