Javelina is most enjoyable when travelled north to south, starting at an intersection with Jordan. The upper part of the route is smooth downhill that transitions into some narrow singletrack.
The middle part of the trail is more mellow and meanders through open hillsides. Stay to the right when you enter an area below some large houses on the slopes above.
From the bottom intersection with Grand Central
it's possible to connect over to Crusty
and Adobe Jack
to create a perimeter route.
