The management area is bounded by Kerckhoff Reservoir and the Sierra National Forest on the eastern boundary. Hikers, bicyclists and horseback riders who use the San Joaquin River Gorge trails have access to several thousand acres of public land.

    Pure XC riding at it's best. Some flow, some technical when it drops in and out of creek beds. Beautiful wildflowers in the Spring. NOT A BEGINNER TRAIL!

    Rode this in March, I was not into it at all. I don't mind riding in the heat but the cows and cow patties everywhere were gross. Started at the south end and climbed up along the river. Views are pretty and if the cows weren't so much everywhere it would've been much funner. Lots of nasty water crossings and the continous smell kinda killed it for me. I was told they move the cows down (or up, I don't know and don't care) when the seasons change so it might be better then but I don't ever need to ride this again.

    Also started from the top on another ride, lots of down trees to Temperance, more HAB than riding and was too tired to try Pasan which I hear is nice.

    We were visiting friends over the Memorial Day weekend and I wanted to get a ride in. I found Pa'san Ridge trail via singletracks. This is a great loop - about 7.5 miles. The climb is consistent with a few rock gardens thrown in periodically to make it interesting (both on the uphill and the downhill). I rode this counterclockwise. Quite a few hikers. Cows wandering across the trail. A number of other mtn bikers - all friendly,

    Pack in plenty of water - there is no water service. I can believe this gets VERY hot in the summer, Choose your ride-time wisely.

    There are trails that run either side of the river towards Millerton lake - something I'll keep in mind for my next visit!

    There was clean up being done on the track today but still enjoyable. Make sure to stick to the right if you're a beginner.

    Great trail system. Tons of singletrack, rolling hills, fire roads, climbs, etc, Scenery is everywhere along these trails. Huge network. Many starting and stopping points. One of the more popular being "Sky Harbor". Definitely worth looking into.
