    Toro Park nice after Wed. rain

    Rode up the back to the top and down Pipe. Traction great, maybe three puddles, two turkeys, and a skunk that did not want to get off the singletrack at the top. The moonrise over the ridge was epic.
    BTW, what happened to the Pipeline sign?

    Sign went missing a few weeks ago. This the second time. It was found and put back. Now it is missing.
    Someone is angry I guess....
    Also watch for the rangers patrolling the park after dark!!
    Were not allowed to night ride in Toro. Yeah bummer. Oh well

    I lost track: Is Pipeline Trail officially completed now?
    Looking for local rides? You'll find plenty on my website: Bay Area Mountain Bike Rides.

    People have been riding, it is completed somewhat. It needs alot of work ( digging, benching etc etc.) The park did put up signs but it is not on the official park map. Someone ripped out one sign and ditched it somewhere. But again it needs alot of work and hopefully with this rain will give us a chance for some serious trail maintenance.

    I wouldn't mind getting involved with the trail work. Is there a site where a work schedule is posted?
    The glass is twice as large as it needs to be

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Toro is Closed

    Just a heads-up peep's.

    Toro Park is currently closed to bikes & horses due to the amount of rainfall over this last weekend. Please give it a couple 2-3 day's to dry out before heading up.

    There was approx. 8 hours of trailwork put in over the weekend as well and the trail-bed is extremely soft in these spots.

    Thanks for your help!

    No. There's only hiking trails in that place.

    Nothing to see here, carry on.
