Docent Dave Kocsis will meet you at the coast for a leisurely climb up to the Skyline Boulevard area, observing the many facets of life in the redwoods as you go. After a rest at the top, you’ll ride back down on some of the best single-track trail around, through the fog or sun depending on the weather, with fantastic coastal views as you drop back to sea-level. This will be a high-intermediate ride with a total distance of about 11 miles and 1,800 feet of climbing. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after April 18.
