Trail Description
About this trail
Solstice by itself is about 4 miles of flowing, technical , rock gardens, off camber switchbacks, roots standing 8 inches above the soil, and bolder strewn drops. For a first timer, please go with a veteran as they can point out some of the technical areas that will warrant a good mortality check. It's a trail that deserves some respect and those that are cocky will be rewarded with a feast of face plants and rocks for breakfast. In Spring, it all held together with the moisture and decent traction prevails, in late Summer, the dust will fly and sliding action is abundant. The lines taken between seasons varies greatly.
Bring the right bike to ride. If you have a group of diverse riders and skills, be prepared to be waiting for those with climbing challenges at the top and those with technical descending deficiencies at the bottom. The trail will end onthe edge fo the San Dominico School in San Anselmo. You can take Butterfield Dr all the way down through Sleepy Hollow to Sir Francis Drake, make a right and get back to your start at Sunshine Bikes/Java Hut. Burgers, Beers and laughs await at the Deli.

Review: pretty insane. if you go don't bring your friends. if you're not a local, try riding other trails in the area first, cause you'll eat it if you ride solstice blind.

Review: I really liked this trail, so much fun. There's some fast stuff as well as some technical stuff. I think hitting this up after Camp Tamarancho is a must. It was my first time there so I skipped some of the drops but I can't wait to hit them after a few more runs.
