One of the few rides accessible from town by bike. Great pre- or post-work ride. Local club - SBMTV.org - hosts Wednesday night rides. Can bust out loop in under 2 hours. Good long climbs with put-your-head-down-and-mash stretches punctuated by technical featured sections. Great views of SB and Channel Islands from Inspiration Point. Downhill from there, armor recommended. Top is very loose and scratchy but all rideable. Great stretches of buff singletrack and switchbacks down to creek. Creek trail is typical SB frontcountry featuring a lot of smoothed boulders, big drops, stairs, off-camber, but - again - almost all rideable.
Please anticipate THERE WILL BE OTHER TRAIL USERS, including horses. Please be respectful and yield to all. Also consider wearing bells on the downhills. Jesusita is one of the last frontcountry trails open to bikes. We really don't want to loose this one. Be cool and spread the stoke!
