This 3.5-hour ride with docents Linda and Glenn Wegner will traverse fire roads, single-track trails (including the new White Oaks Trail) and take riders down Stevens Canyon in a loop back to your starting point at Picchetti Ranch Preserve. Beginning with a 5-mile leg up Montebello Road, the overall ride will have 3,000 feet of climbing and cover about 20 miles (8 miles of which are on paved roads). An option for faster riders is to leave with docent Glenn at 9:45 am for a quicker ascent up to Monte Bello Preserve and access to Black Mountain.
