    This is a fantastic trail for a short 1 hour ride. Lots of roots and rocks, there are a few drops that are unavoidable on the path to the Top of the World. The climb is not challenging but the roots, rocks, and drops can be difficult for the uninitiated. There is a warm-up track along the bottom that serves as a great training ground for beginners. If you live in the Bay Area and wants to get better at mtbing, there is a mountain biking clinic that takes place here once a month for beginners with a price. I did it and it was a great boost to my skills. Highly recommend the trail to intermediate riders.

    there are many loops around this trail and a few drops off of Top of the World - you'll know once you get there. You can also cross through the golf course as well and a few technical areas. Looks great!
