    Best you can do is take BART to Colma. You need to get to the Sam trans # 294 to Pacifica/Montara. From the beach, it's a street ride to Montara.

    Plan on it being an all day adventure.

    ... and if we just ...

    - 80 West over the Bay Bridge
    - Merge onto 280 South
    - Merge onto Highway 1 South
    - When you get to Linda Mar (beach on your right, along with Taco Bell), make a left onto Linda Mar Blvd at the light (there will be a Denny's on the corner).
    - Make a right onto Adobe
    - To get to the old road entrance, you would make a left on Higgins, then go to the end of the street. HOWEVER, please park on Adobe somewhere, or make a right on Higgins and park there in order to keep the peace with the residents.

    Have fun

    Sick place to ride. Has everything. Go up the paved road all the way to the powerlines. Then get on the dirt and hike a bike up Crack. Rip down that and stay on the single track along the ridge. Hike up the rocky grade staying to your left. Stop at the last peak and go to singletrack to your right. This is The Mile. Nice rocky, gully filled fast descent. Finish at the paved road by a power line. Then go up a small trail to your left to the top of BoyScout. Fun multiple, jump, bermed, filled ride down to Higgins Street. You can repeat BoyScout several times an hour as the ride up the paved is a quick 10 mins.

    Might be there Sunday morning. Silver 03 BigHit Expert w/Specialized full face.

    If my friends and I end up going, maybe we'll see you there. Here's my rig: http://www.tundrasolutions.com/photo...cat/500/page/2

    My 2 other friends will be on a 03 Heckler and the other on a Uzzi SLX.


    Thanks!

    Make sure to stop by the bike shop down there (http://www.gearheadbicycles.com/contact.htm for directions ). Boyscout is on private property, so you have to sign a waiver at the shop to ride it. Don't ride Boyscout without signing the waiver!

    Yep, that's the main thing, get the waiver and if you do drive in, have respect for the local residence on Higgins, Adobe etc. From what I understand it's a pretty fragile situation.
