    Just bumping this thread to thank Nutballchamp and imamodel for their Annadel info. My buddy and I from the south bay ride Demo and Skegg's a bunch and usually save the 2+ hour drives for heading to Downieville and Tahoe. But we wanted to change things up last Sunday and headed to Annadel. We rode:

    warrenrichardson>twoquarry>lawndale>ridge>southburma>northburma>liveoak>orchard>cobblestone>roughgo

    We had a few route finding snafu's but nothing major considering it was our first time. Thanks guys, we will be back...

    What time? I was in Annadel on Sunday on Marsh (the trail that connects Ridge to Ledson Marsh) near Buick Medow when one guy passed me like I was standing still. Another caught up to me right before Buick Meadow.. They (and I) headed down South Burma where I passed them on a picnic table then they passed me on the descent.

    It's where I ride exclusively.

    We started at 10am and finished at 2pm. So we would have been in that area around 12:30'ish or so??? Could've been us. My friend's legs were really strong that day, he definitely was dropping me on climbs.... If we were stopped we were probably consulting our trail map.

    I was there on Sunday also. Rode schultz,pig flat marsh,s.burma,canyon, marsh,lawndale (went down kinda hard on lawndale.) started about 11:00. Brought a buddy for his first ride. His quads cramped up at ilsanjo, so he walked most of the way out.

    Gate jump is definitely a good one. It requires a little 'hop' , mind you, but it is easily do-able.

    When you are tearing down that last section of lawndale before the parking lot, just look up from all the rocks and ruts and sail over that sucker like a bird. The only thing to watch for is clipping the back wheel as you jump over; that could end really badly considering the other side is a bit lower than the front. High speed endo.

    I love Annadel for those 'extras'.

    BTW lake Ilsanjo is perfect for swimming right now. I try to get up there for a ride and swim at least a few times a week.

    I started from my house ~9:00 and would have been there ~10:00 or so... I love the park and need to ride with some friends. I'm afraid to try tougher trails w/o my riding partners (one of which is and orthopedist).

    Dude days like this you just ride up to the lake, swim for 45 min and ride back down. That what I did today after work. Around 3:30p. Super hot!!! So basically swim with a little ride

    Been riding at Annadel since the 80's with my rigid Specialized, now rocking it with a free ride bike. I like starting up Canyon to marsh to burma to richardson to live oak to rough go----and there is a really fun trail off of cobblestone if you turn right at the junction with Rough Go filled with drops and a stair drop at the bottom

    I did this loop yesterday and holy crap, so much climbing for so little downhill. I don't know the mileage or percent but it seemed like way more climbing than downhill. Granted I haven't ridden in several months and some of the trails were new to me.

    Enjoy the downs. Usually how it goes on a ride. If I read it right you did about 20-22 mi. can't tell if you're content or disappointed in ride. Keeping in mind the downhill miles go by way faster. It's the woohoo factor that balances out the climbs for me up there.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    If you go faster up hill and slower downhill, you won't be spending so much time climbing and so little time descending. I think that's about 18 or 19 miles. It's the loop I usually do at Annadel. You get Lawndale and both of the Burmas in the "right" direction. Also, the most difficult climb (Two Quarry) gets knocked out early in the ride. I Love it.

    In all seriousness, if you do the loop after you get into climbing shape, it won't seem as bad. The couple of times I've done it after an extended layoff or in hot weather, I've cursed the climbs as well.

    It could have been more like 20-22mi. but my phone gps pooped out on me. I'm more content then disappointed. I guess it's been a while and didn't really know what to expect on some of the trails.

    Yeah, I'm not a climber at all but will be soon hopefully. I was definitely cursing the climbs but really in the end, it was worth it. I'll soon be a regular. Thanks for the support.
