Ridge Trail is a deliciously technical singletrack trail. On average, it's a descent from Aptos Creek Road, but it does have a couple of short and steep climbing sections. For the most part, it continues like an amusement park ride and occasionally throws challenging technical sections at you.
One of the most characteristic features of Ridge Trail are its many well-banked S-curves.
Along the trail, you pass by the junction with Corral Trail and past a helicopter landing area at the junction with Sulphur Springs Trail.
