What we'll do
We'll meet at the bridge at the upper parking lot entrance and arrive 8:30 roll at 9am sharp. The park is 65 miles from Oakland with several winding narrow mountain road miles after getting off of Highway 17 so plan accordingly! There is no cell reception in the park so it's impossible to check for last minute no shows, yes shows, or late people. The last available restroom off of Highway 17 is at the Summit Store. Ride Length: 13.5 miles.
Elevation gain: 2200'
Moving time:[masked] hours depending on the group


The ride is a fire road climb, and then singletrack rooty ups and downs until we get to the Flow Trail. Then it is six miles of Scream like a Kid On A Roller Coaster downhill flowy fun! Then it's a fire road sufferfest climb back out to the parking lot. This ride is not suitable for beginning riders, riders should be comfortable on narrow hillside singletrack and rooty trail. Riders should also be in decent aerobic shape because although the pace is going to be leisurely, there will be climbing! Speed Demons are welcome to join but please keep in mind that this ride welcomes intermediate riders that don't race bikes for a living, and we'll be regrouping a lot.

There are options to loop back and do some or all of the Flow Trail to extend the ride if people would like to do so.

Please ensure that your bike is in tip top working order, and carry all necessary equipment you need for trailside repairs. Also carry plenty of food and water. You are responsible for your own safety on the trail. Also please carry ID and emergency contact information.
