Mountain Biking Estero Trail To Sunset Beach

***   Add a review
#533 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#6,488 in the world

Great out-and-back ride to the ocean. Some fun climbs and short technical descents with mixed trail type and terrain. One of the few legal singletrack trails in the Point Reyes National Seashore.

Getting there
From US 101 in Marin County, exit Sir Francis Drake/San Anselmo. Drive west on Sir Francis Drake about 20 miles, to the junction with CA 1, turn right, drive 0.1 mile, and then turn left onto Bear Valley Road. After about 2 miles, Bear Valley Road ends at Sir Francis Drake; turn left. Continue on Sir Francis Drake about 7.5 more miles, and turn left at the sign "Estero Trail." Drive slowly (there may be cows on this narrow road) about 1 more mile to the trailhead on the right side of the road.

Q: What makes this a "black diamond" trail?

    Unfortunately the quality of the trail has degraded badly in the past couple of seasons. The water runoff has damaged most of the steep downhills so badly that they're unridable. Hopefully the park service will repair them someday but until then it's a lot less fun than it used to be (and damn hard if you actually try to ride those parts...)
