If you are riding the La CimaTrail be prepared for a gritty, slow, rocky (at first) singletrack climb. Once on top, continue on La Cima where you'll pedal outstanding singletrack with sweeping views. La Cima will turn into/become the California Ride and Hiking Trail, but you won't know it. Simply stay on the singletrack the entire time. Follow the flow of the trail. It's a dandy!
