this is a great really fast downhill ride with one small uphill but its really fun and intense with a few nice jumps. There are also a few ways to go and i suggest going to the right at the bottom of the second hill.

Summary:
connects to orinda oaks if you go down all the way. i just hiked half of it yesterday because it was so steep i had to leave my bike and then come and get it. at the top is donald drive and few houses. if you go all the way to the right is a few watersheds and then a gate that is open.

Summary:
This trail sucks. I dont know what gave him the idea to call it extreme. There is a 1-2 mile paved uphill to get there, then some mildly sloped fire roads going down building up to a whopping 1 short downhill. I've had more fun riding off of curbs.

Recommended Route:
Stay home. Go find some sidewalks to ride.

Summary:
This trail is not even close to extreme there were no rocks, no drop-offs, no technical sections and 1 steep descent. dont waste your time on this, there are a lot of better, harder trails that are nearby.

Recommended Route:
past the hacienda, before the rheem school take a left up donald driveand the trail is near somewater towers near the top

Reviewed by: someone , from Orinda

Summary:
This is some awesome single track downhilling. It is a short trail and not worth the drive if you don't live near it, but there are no hikers and plenty of steep single track sections and a cliff traverse. There are also some very difficult, expert-level switchbacks.

Recommended Route:
The directions have already been stated in previous reviews, but my favorite trail is when you take a right after the first downhill.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For XC, the East-West Ridge in redwood park is awesome.
