This is an epic trail with a fast and furious downhill. Embedded rocks all along the way down. Lost of places to grip climbing up, though sometimes loose in locations where it gets a bit washed out in some spots that are like little gullys. But a lot of buff sections as it gets a lot of traffic during summer.

       This is a super fun downhill with a little tech here and there, good flow, couple hills, and then lots of tight turns in the trees. I would shuttle this and not do all the climbs if you can find anyone that would with a 4wd. Not sure if I’d ride it again otherwise.

       It's a grind. Beautiful, but the climb is brutal, especially if you're not used to the elevation. Read my write up about it at twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/teocalli-ridge-not-all-its-hyped-up-to-be

       Over-rated. Lots of effort for an overall ok ride, especially if you are riding in from the housing development. Quality of ascent: 1 star, views: 5 stars, downhill: 3 stars. There is a total of about 1 mile of really good descent mixed with lots of motorcycle ruts/damage, especially at the turns. if you only have a few days save your energy for better trails.

       CB classic. Good riding, sick views, and an ass kicker of a climb.

       Easy fire road pedal, tough 1.3 miles to the ridge, and then another mile or so to the top of the DH..top is super fast and rocky, a few small drops, and the. It turns into fast and somewhat chunky single track. Ends with bermed switch backs, and fast meadow rip. Likely my favorite rip in CB

       This climb is brutal, I got back to sea level and ran a 5:45 mile. I was pushing my bike more on this climb than I have since my first year riding

      The downhill is awesome though, and the scenery is brutal. Just be ready for a serious uphill effort

       Great trail as part of the Teocalli loop. The climb is a bitch, but the sport is called _mountain_ biking.
