Primary fire road through Las Trampas Park with moderate to steep climbs typical of other East Bay parks. Nice wooded sections and open areas with great views of Mount Diablo. This ride is a good workout with several other trail options that branch off the along the way.

Access Info

Best to park at the Alamo Starbucks and ride down the Iron Horse trail to Camille Ave, turn right and find the trailhead at the end of the street. Exit the trail at Las Trampas Drive which will return you right back down to Starbucks.

       I usually ride this the opposite direction, from Las Tramps Road to down to Camille Ave., usually burning some single track while I'm at it. Post-ride brew at Alamo Extreme Pizza....
