    Trail Recommendation

    Hey all,

    Im looking for a trail recommendation. I take a bunch of 8 year olds on MTB rides. Our go to ride is the Chesebro loop that starts from the upper parking lot, goes to shepherd flats then right to the look out and then down the fire road back to the parking lot. See attached. Its about 10 miles and 900 feet of climbing. They like the level of technical ridding. Any recommendations for something similar but different.

    THANKS

    In the same general area, there are a variety of loops from the trailhead at the end of Las Virgenes Road, including going up to the mesa. It's mostly less technical but there is plenty of climbing, depending on the routes taken (left or right of the main road over to Victory Blvd.).

    Then you can do Space Mountain, the Los Robles trail, at the end of Moorpark Rd. Lots of switchbacks, a bit more technical in some places but it is good fun, especially going down.

    Finally, you could try the Backbone Trail from the Encinal trailhead. It's a nice gentle climb up to a fire road, where you can go left. There are gates at the end that have been closed, but you could turn around there. It's really fun swooping back down to the trailhead once you hit the singletrack.

    There are more, but those are good ones to start with.
