    I have only been riding since march but it is my favorite so far. It seems to have everything... Grueling climb, spectacular views, technical rocks, very remote and then you get to descend for 5 miles :D If you hook up with a local it's even better.

    This is a great rainy day thread.

    Legal trails I would say Braille, 3rd Divide and Lawndale.

    In the bay it's a toss up between anything in A-del & Skegs, in Tahoe it's TRT (Freel Peak>Armstorng>Onitas Rd)

    I have a warm spot in my bosom for Bolinas Ridge Trail... still, after many years of riding better or funner trails, this one remains my favorite. Can't explain it.

If I want to put 6-7 miles of road time in (counting the whole ride), UCSC, Wilder, and the like open themselves up.

    I'd say, my favorite "trail" are the trails in Santa Cruz because I can just get on my bike and pedal. A big plus when I have to spend time in the car during the week for work.


    same here, riding out my front door is pretty sick. no driving to the trail head but unfortunately living in Santa Cruz Co I am unable to mention the names of my favorite trails. :D

    go figure.

    Another vote for Third Divide. I love the fast swoopy feel.

    Right now Oat Hill Mine is my favorite because it's what's in the best shape around here. Plus it's long and awesome and may take me a lifetime to master.

    There are a lot of places in Nor Cal that I haven't been to though.

    also, in demo forest, i like the top half of corral, braille and sawpit.

    Forest City: climb Sandusky up to Big Tree, out and back Truckee Ditch(to top of Yolanda Mtn), down Ridgerunner, back up Pliocene Rd to Big Tree, then down Sandusky. Perfect singlespeed trail!

    Ok, I live here, so am prejudiced... but have to say, the more I ride here on Montara Mountain, the more I discover the "other" trails, etc., etc., the more I love this place. On a nice day you cannot beat the views (well... TRT has some good views too, but that's fresh water and doesn't count!). On the foggy days you still have the mountain. And, if what I saw at the GGNRA open house comes to fruition, its only going to get better (much better)!
