Mountain Biking Elings Park

***   Add a review
#420 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#4,998 in the world

Trails are mostly singletrack with a few steep, but short climbs. The mountain bike trails intersect with hiking trails quite often.
Mostly mellow singletrack that is great for beginners, but the climbs/descents might be a bit tough for them.
There are a few jumps and small rock gardens but all have bypasses.

    Good trails for a quick ride or workout. 3 fun downhill single tracks with a easy but decent workout climb. Great place for beginner riders. About five years ago there was some fun jumps and features but now they are mostly gone or only small reminantes left.

    Good beginner/intermediate trail. Short, fun climbs. Nothing you will bust a lung on.

    Elings Park is a decent singletrack trail that's inside Santa Barbara. If you start in the park, you'll begin with a pretty steep climb but once you get o the top you'll have you're choice of trails.
    The short slalom section is pretty fun with jumps and a rock garden or two. That leads to the downhill section with some nice banked turns.
    If you don't have time to hit one of the front range trails, this is a great trail to hit!
