Description

Opened in 2014, this well-designed singletrack wooded trail is a popular mountain biking route with a significant ascent or descent. Lake County Reservoir provides a scenic resting spot. Parking at the ends of both connector trails is extremely limited, so consider doing this route as a round-trip from the Sunnyvale Mountain staging area.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
