#10 of 1,004 mountain bike trails in California

Head east out of town to Lavezzola road. right on to south 1st divide trail at small P.G.E station. easy climb to Lavezzola road and take a right onto road 2nd Divide is only a short climb on your right. climb some more ( both 1st and 2nd kinda roll alot of gain loss ) I have never seen anyone clean the final climb to 3rd Divide where you will take a left for a short climb to a very fast drop down 3rd Divide to the fire road which drops to the north section of 1st divide just passed bridge on the right. This will take you back to south 1st divide and back to town. tis a must do
