Mountain Biking M Trail

****   Add a review
#229 of 1,001 mountain bike trails in California
#2,911 in the world

this trail starts out pretty easy. a little rough, after a little bit the trail starts to get technical. a beginer can make the trail if they go slow, there are a few places a biginner would walk. the trail gets into some good rock sections. wach out in one section the rocks are really close to the trail, and i ripped off my derailer hanger. it is a fun trail. it comes out across a little valley from your car.

Rider questions

Q: Where do we find parking
A: If you go up hidden springs, there is a gravel road on the left with a parking lot. I think it is open 6am to 7pm. The ranger living there opens it. There is also a fee.

    The uphill is challenging. The downhill is worth it.
    I'm a cross country rider, but am fairly strong on downhill.
    I like to start at the bottom and ride the single track up to a certain point. Once you get to the peak of the first mound, if you continued to go up, it would be a lot of hike a bike. But you could get in an awesome 2 mile loop with hard climbing and AWESOME downhilling.
    My first time downhilling this section of the trail I crashed a bunch of times. It is VERYsteep at sections.There are also very steep rock faces that are intimidating.
    My first 2 times downhilling this sucked. Then i went and bought a dropper post. Game changer!
    My 4th time attempting the downhill was amazing. Now I bomb the whole trail and it feels incredible.

    I'm only giving this a 3 star rating because it's a good climb, it's a good length, and the downhill is pretty much all rideable for an intermediate rider. I really don't like this trail though. The downhill is really tight, narrow and steep. Which means you're on your brakes a lot. There aren't really any sections to get a lot of speed because it's so tight. The trail is not flowy at all. The rocky sections would be more fun if it wasn't so steep, narrow and on the edge of an even steeper hillside. There is little grip for your tires to grab in the hard pack, gravely dirt that's always at an angle of at least 15 degrees perpendicular to your path.
    The views are great from the top and the climb is a great workout. I won't ride this trail anymore though because the downhill section sucks. It's just not fun, period.

    Great place to ride if you can handle the climb. Great downhill with some technical. Very fast trail. Watch out for hikers. Very nice views when you get to top. They have a nice xc track at bottom on the right hand side of hiking trail where you can bring even the little ones.
