    Need Santa Cruz Trail Recommendations

    Hitting up Santa Cruz next week.

    Aside from the Soquel Demo Flow Trail (which just seems insanely fun) what are considered the "must rides" in Santa Cruz?

    I'll have 8 hrs over two days to ride, so recommend away!

    I like technical trails that can be ridden in loops or out and back, not interested in shuttling. That being said, does Soquel Flow Trail require shuttling?

    Thanks everyone!

    Find a local willing to take you out. Generally there people that are willing to play tour guide.

    As for Demo - no shuttling needed unless you are a pansy about climbing. It is typically...park, climb climb climb, roll along ridge, WHEEEEEE, climb climb WHEE , climb back to car.

    Good loops at demo would be sawpit then up tractor to flow, or down Braille, down hihn's mill to tractor, up tractor, down flow.

    There's some other good stuff a little off the map there if you have a guide.

    Also check out Emma McCreary and surrounding area in Santa Cruz.
