The third printing of "Mountain Biking the Mendocino Coast and Beyond" 2nd edition is now available!
This is an invaluable tool for exploring hundreds of miles of single and double track on the Mendocino Coast. Twenty five rides from beginner to advanced can be found well documented to the hundredth of a mile. One advanced ride, The Tour de Jackson, can deliver upwards of 6,000' of elevation gain in slightly over 34 miles. The average trail ride in the guidebook is approximately 15 to 20 miles with 2,500' to 3,000' of elevation gain.
Signage is limited if not missing all together. It will be some time before we can actually put the necessary signs up to orient bikers in the dense woods of the JDSF and State parks. We are working in cooperation with Cal-Fire, who manages the Jackson Demonstration State Forest, to address the need to sign trailheads and intersections. Hopefully, this will all be focused on in the JDSF Recreation survey which will be released later this spring.
The book is best used with an accurate cyclometer or GPS device. Although, the 810 Garmin loses signals constantly due to dense foliage. The most accurate Garmin found so far has been the 62s.
