Trail 47 Details

Starting from Skyline Road, climb up the hill toward Laguna Seca and look for the trail to split off to your left. The initial descent behind turn 6 of Laguna Seca Raceway is fun and flows well. After the descent, climb a bit and pass the entrance/exit to the Grand Prix Campground and then start a long descent down the hillside through the Fort Ord Grasslands. Look for a split in the trail. Straight ahead is Trail 48 which re-connects with Trail 47 after a short distance.

For a little longer ride and a drop further down the hill take Trail 47 to the right. After another climb, follow the trail around a hill and then drop down into the bottom of Couch Canyon. After crossing a dry stream bed gradually climb up and out toward Skyline Road. Before you get there face "Hurl Hill" for a possible hike-a-bike.

47/ 48 Trail are ridable for most part, but slow. Very overgrown with weeds in places. Spring mud holes have turned to pits and hard ruts.
