    Question?? Trail loop for youths

    Hey all,

    I was wondering if any of you can recommend a trail loop that youths ages 12 and 9 wouldn't get discouraged doing. We are local to Pacifica but the only riding I am familiar with here would be too difficult for my daughters (I probably don't know the right trails i guess.) We have ridden the trail by the Golf course going up to Mori Point but I would like them to try something different. I heard China camp offers something along those lines. Any recommendations close to us would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

    You should try out the Waddell Creek ride.
    It's an out and back that is about 6 miles each way

    Here is a link to the location.

    And yes, the Shoreline Trail in China Camp is very mellow and relatively flat.

    If you venture down south, Arastradero Preserve is an excellent place for kids and beginners. It has a mix of easy fire roads and single track. There's a bowl in the middle of the park where they can roll over jumps. Parking area has bathrooms and a wildlife center with trail maps.

    +1 for Arastadero. Also, there's now a dirt road that runs along the coast from Cowell Ranch beach south to Pescadero. Its not a loop, but its dirt and really scenic.
