Summary:
Two, two, two trails in one. Your choice: Rocky technical downhill, or super technical single track. The downhill can be a white-knuckle ride w/ tight switchbacks, long straight-aways a few drops, and generally covered by loose gravel/rocks. The single track is generally flatter, but don't clip in too tight, because if you can clear all the roots, rocks, stumps, and overhanging branches w/o dabbing, you're a stud. Also very narrow in spots, but not as
loose as downhill. Overall an awesome ride.

Recommended Route:
Park chase vehicle at one mile. Shuttle up Hwy 32 about 10 miles, past the frisbee golf course. When you pass Santos Ranch Rd. (on right), start looking for a driveway & parking area on your left. Park here. Bomb down the fire road launching off the erosion berms crossing the trail down to the trailhead. Go left. Mellow single track until you get to a fork in the road. Go right for downhill to Bear Hole. Stop dip your tootsies and check out the coeds who ain't wearin' much. Continue on. Or go left for super tech. single track. Both trails eventually meet up and feature a hike a bike up hill (I'll buy dinner & drinks at Sierra Nevada if you can clean it). More technical riding & pop out by the golf course. Fire road to the paved road, to Five Mile (both alternate vehicle parking spots). Through Five Mile, under the overpass, more asphalt, then pick up the mellow single track on the left, and follow it to One Mile. Then go to the "O" for a burger and a beer.
