Mountain Biking Keyesville Special Recreation Management Area

*****   Add a review
#71 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
#1,129 in the world

Description by Bubblhead10MM

Semi arid desert riding at around 2500 to 3000ft range. Trails wend their way around and over small mountains in the shadow of bigger ones. This area is home to SSFTA Keyesville classic MTB race. Much of the trail is multi use especially west of the river, so watch out for OHV's.

    Great trails and home to one of the best events in California - The Keyesville Classic. Good ST, well constructed. River trail goes all the way to Bakersfield.
