    Not me personally but two friends rode it (today and two days ago) and seems pretty good and rideable except for a few sections with longitudinal ruts from water runoff.
    Uh oh! Someone just stole your KOM!

    Rode it today. It's in great shape. It was designed to hold up very will in the rain. Very few ruts, just on the dirt roads. A few little mud puddles and we crossed a few streams going up to Bald Mt.

    Calero has become a very popular park. Maybe 100 people out there today in the good weather. The lot was full. One third hikers, two thirds bikers. No horses.

    I suspect having a nice trail that's not horrible steep is a good attraction. The trail also undulates with lots of zigs and zags and great views, which helps.
    It's not slow, it's doing more MTB time.

    That's amazing. I've been there a number of times and never seen more than a handful of cars in the lot.

    Definitely one of the more mellow but still fun trails around.

    I found that it mimics a race course condition more than Kennedy ever will training wise. The race course is just not a lot of prolonged steep climbing.
