Mountain Biking Hazel to Granite Bay

*****   Add a review
#212 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#2,772 in the world

Head east on bike American River bike path, just passed kiosk will be single track, it will criss cross pavement, if there is not any trail just keep it on the dirt on either side. Go under the new Folsom bridge make a right, climb to bridge, cross bridge headed north.
Other end of the bridge turn right, go down to bike path, go left toward dam, single track runs willy nilly on the way to Beal Point passed dam. Head toward Granit Bay on fire road. There is single track so snoop around, fire trail will take you to Granite Bay.
At Granite Bay there are many choices so do yours, I at least do first hill. Ride ranges from 27 to 38 miles

    I rode every trail out there from Beal Point including multiple loops around the Granite Bay Trail and had less than 30 miles so the previous reviewer really oversold this place. The Granite Bay trails are pretty good. Nothing real technical on the main trail. Some of the bypass trails go over some boulders but nothing real challenging. There are a lot of unmarked trails that go all over the place. I rode a few and think the main trail is probably your best bet. The unmarked trails generally just go off the main trail then rejoin without any real reason other than to ugly up the place.
