Mountain Biking Severe
Where the more commonly-ridden trails consist of wide, flowing singletrack, the trails here are much narrower and less-maintained. Tight singletrack plunging through mud pits, traversing endless root webs, and dropping into rock gardens that have more in common with a dried-up waterfall than mountain bike trails is par for the course. Add in some serious sideslope with not-insignificant exposure, and these trails are definitely not for the faint of heart!
That said, those riders who do venture to El Corte de Madera’s outer reaches will experience a mountain bike adventure filled with challenge and daring that few Bay Area riders can claim!
Widely variable, narrow trail tread with steeper grades and unavoidable obstacles of 15in/38cm tall or less. Obstacles may include unavoidable bridges 24in/61cm wide or less, large rocks, gravel, difficult root sections, and more. Ideal for advanced-level riders.
