The SBT (Trail 164) is typically ridden from east to west, starting at either the Forest Road 76 trailhead near Angelfire, or the Garcia Park trailhead near Valle Escondio. Typically these start points are accessed via a shuttle. Riding east to west makes the climbs more manageable, and downhills more delicious.
