Newest trail opened to MTB in the Montana de Oro. One of four trails south of Islay Creek open to biking.(Others include Beebee trail, Reservoir Flats trail and the Bluff trail) Approx 11 miles round trip, be prepared for some pedaling and a fun descent. Last .5 mile at the summit is steep and rocky, beginners be warned. Otherwise a fun trail for almost all riders. Great views. Be mindful of poison oak in sections.

Access Info

Trailhead is located just passed Spooners Cove. Park in the general area of the white ranch house, and pedal back passed the bath rooms toward the campground. Trailhead is on your right.
