Q: What's the best way to get to the trail head on Granite Bay Trail? -Guest
A: Inside the main gate off of Douglas, take a right at the first two stop signs. You will pass by the trail at the second sign. Follow the road until you get to a parking lot with a bathroom. You will have been to the left of the trail on the road. Bike back up to where you see a white gate on the left just as the road makes that 90* turn, the trail takes off to the right from there. The gate house will have maps or download a gpx. $12 park fee or use a golden poppy pass. There are numerous trails. Another way to learn them is to join a local mtb club such as the Hammerin' Wheels found on meetup. They bike there every Thursday and Sunday.
