Mountain Biking Glory Hole

****   Add a review
#162 of 1,005 mountain bike trails in California
#2,364 in the world

About 15 miles of very fast, hard packed, rolling single-track. Four different loops connected by the Frontier Trail. Except for the Tower Climb, which contains 8 uphill switchbacks, nothing technical. Great place to ride year round but a little hot in the summer. Huge lake recreation area so bring the family along while you ride. Maps, videos and photos at my site:

Rider questions

Q: In a few weeks myself and a couple of buddies are heading to the trail for the first time. Is 20 Angels Creek Access Road the best place to park and enter the trails?
