Mountain Biking New Millennium Loop

***   Add a review
#330 of 1,000 mountain bike trails in California
#3,957 in the world

This has the potential of being a great route with tons of switchbacks and a

“doable” gradient both ascending and descending. The trail tread is in very

good shape … as of this posting, however, the trail is getting overgrown in

several places. Expect to be pulling weeds out of your spokes and a scratchy

ride. It’s worth it to have this nice singletrack loop easily available to the urban

rider.

There are a couple places you come on “Caution” signs indicating tight

switchbacks. Believe them! These switchbacks apparently weren’t designed

with mountain bikes in mind. The exposure is pretty extreme. Put a foot

down (or both feet)! There are plenty of other switchbacks on this loop you

can practice on.

Route Directions:

The Bark Park Trail begins at the north end of the dog park (Bark Park).

@ mile 0.29 the trail forks. Go left.

@ mile 1.13 you intersect the New Millenium Loop Trail. Recommend doing the

loop clockwise, so turn left.

@ mile 3.21 you intersect the Anza Loop Trail. Turn right onto this double

track and follow it up to the end.

@ mile 4.08 you hit asphalt. Go another 100 yards and take the singletrack

going left.

@ mile five there is a fork / junction. You will turn a hard right at the fork, but

be alert – this is an easy corner to miss. There is a sign hidden in the bush on

the left. If you hit asphalt close to HWY 101, you’ve gone too far. Retrace

your steps a quarter of a mile to the junction.

@ mile 7.29 you cross Calabasas Parkway. This is an alternate start point if it

is more conveniently located for you.

@ mile 11.54 you come to a trail junction. Go right.

@ mile 12.36 you complete the loop. Turn left to retrace your route down the

Bark Park Trail to the trailhead.

@ mile 13.5 you should be back at your vehicle.

    This is normally a 5 star trail. However, due to the excessive growth from the heavy winter rains, it is still completely overgrown. Only go here if you want to do a lot of bushwhacking! I will return this Fall

    Great trail that's mostly a loop (90%), single track and very very uncrowded. The trail appears well maintained and has lots of good climbs and quick downhills all interspersed with a lot of tough switchbacks. Takes about 1.45 - 2hrs to complete the approx 12 miles. Easy access to the trail-head from the good parking at the "Bark Park"

    This has the potential of being a great after-work training ride. You climb up and over many ridges. Lots of chance to work on your switchback riding skills. It would be great if a local bike club (or somebody!) could chop back the vegetation so you can ride the loop much faster (without getting shredded).
