Mountain Biking Monte Bello / Rancho San Antonio

****   Add a review
#66 of 1,004 mountain bike trails in California
#1,202 in the world

Good variety of trails for the beginner/intermediate mountain biker. There are more trails
than the following loop described, just pick up a map at the trailhead/parking lot. Start off
on the Canyon Trail fireroad and veer left onto the Bella Vista Trail for some exposed
singletrack climbing on the hillside. Pass the camp site and head towards Indian Creek trail
for a long steep downhill on a fire road. Get back on Canyon trail for a short distance and
head towards White Oak trail for some creek-side singletrack through the woods. Out of the
woods, the climb continues on singletrack and can be tortuous on a hot summer day. At the
top, take a right at the intersection towards the parking lot.

Getting there
Go north on 280 from San Jose, exit Page Mill Rd. Turn left, go about 7 miles into the hills
and there will be a parking lot on the left for Monte Bello Open Space. If you get to Skyline
Blvd, you have gone at least a mile too far.

Rider questions

Q: I was not able to find the trail :( Anyone have better directions to the trail head? Thanks! I ended up going back to the Arastradero Preserve
A: You have to get on Pagemill Rd. Its almost all the way to the top. If you are driving from Palo Alto area, go up page mill. If you get to Skyline Blvd you have gone too far. There's no address for google but nearest is 4175 Page Mill Rd, Los Altos, CA 94022, go east of that address no more than 1/4 or so, you cant miss it.
