Mountain Biking Hihn's Mill road

**   Add a review
#654 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#9,467 in the world

At the "bottom" of the downhill trails, you emerge onto Hihn's Mill Road-a fire road.

This will be your uphill grind to return to the parking lot. It's not a particularly steep climb (around 8 or 9% grade, initially) but it might feel unwelcome near the end of your ride. Thankfully, its slope gradually slackens as you go higher.

    Non-technical, smooth fire road.
    Unrelenting gradient.
    Necessary evil.
