Crystal Crescent beach Trail

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Starts out as double track and as you go further along the coast it narrows to single track. It goes in and out of the woods, with some sections more rideable than others. Some sections may be a little confusing the first time but they all lead back to the main trail. It follows the water all the way which is pretty cool if you like the salt air thing. Great views the whole way. A really fun trail with lots of short climbs and descents.

This trail really rocks!!! There is great climbing and descending at the beginning with some technical descents thrown in for fun. As you go along the beach there is a little sand but then in becomes singletrack the whole way!!! I love riding by the ocean with the salt air and there are some rocks to play on along the way. The trail ends when there is no land left, just ocean. The views are sweet. Turn around and ride back out!!! There is some variety is terms of the routes you take but they all lead to same trail.
