Lots of small ups and downs with some long sloping down hill sections. Can be rocky or muddy, depending on the season.

Trail Directions
From berkeley go up to the grizzly peak wildcat canyon intersection. Go up wildcat. As you near inspiration point there will be a picnic site called Quarry. Go up the steps and follow the trail until you get to an intersction.Turn right and go until a fourway intersection go straight or right, it takes you to the same place. Then keep going out and you will see the big springs trail. Go up it until the sea view trail. Go right if you want to get back to wildcat canyon road or left if you want to it Volmer peak. Also taking Seaview to Big Springs and back down Quarry is also real fun.

Summary:
Steep Climb from the Fire Road Gate just past Quarry Area. This is a long steady climb with loose soil and rocks which makes sure you site your ass down and not get up or loose some serious energy. When u reach the top there is a picnic table with great panoramic views of the bay (I think there used to be a canon here during wwII). The rest of the ride is all down down from here. I take a left on the first fork in the trail and go up to Vollmer Peak then cut over to South Park Drive and back on to the trail to Quarry Picnic Area.

Recommended Route:
ho ho...many of you are going from the picnic area..pffffft! Thats the easy way. Try going up the road just a few feet past the Quarry Picnic Area and there is a gate on the right side before Inspiration Point. Take this route up the trail. This side is hella tougher than the Quarry Area approach.

Summary:
This trail is pretty lame except for one good downhill. The only reason that I take it is to get to the best DH in the east bay, Sideoak. This is all fire roads, and there's a jump, and there is also a lot of climbing.

Recommended Route:
take a left at the first fork for a little climbing but a nice dh, or go right for fast fire roads.

Summary:
Its really fun at times. I am god. God am I. Am I god? I god am. Have you seen your monkey lately? I have. Come to monkey quest dot com for more information about finding your inner wet monkey. Bust a cap foo.

Recommended Route:
Backwards on one wheel, I recommend body armor, because you can take some serious spills. Especially when hitting the jumps.
