Mountain Biking Pogonip Open Space

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

The word Pogonip means 'icy fog' in Shoshone.
The Pogonip area consists of a mix of forested areas and meadow.
Of the 8 miles of singletrack and fire road in the Pogonip, approximately 2.5 miles are open to bikes: Rincon Connector, Rincon Road and U-Con Trail plus the MBoSC-built Emma McCrary Trail, a beginner friendly, 1.5 mile multi-use trail that provides vehicle-free access to UCSC from downtown Santa Cruz.

Bicycles are prohibited on all other trails.
