This is a steep doubletrack cut by someone 4 wheeling up to the ridge of the Russel Peak Trail in Briones. This trail is more for bragging rights than trail quality. I ride Briones only to get a mountain bike workout. Briones is very boring, but this is a fun little trail to end your ride. The trail cuts off the ridge and bombs straight down the side of a the hill towards Happy Valley Road. Be prepared to eat sh*t.

Trail Directions
Ride Russel Peak trail like you are heading out of the park towards Weseley Court (I think its called). There is a small sign that says something like you are leaving Briones park. The trail is immediately on your left. It drops down to Happy Valley Road. You will not be able to bike back up the trail. It is too steep. Do not park in the court. The neighbors have towed my friends cars. Park in a staging area or bike from home.

Not worth making a trip to Briones for the trail, but if you live in the area and want a steep downhill I would recommend it.

It is not a real trail and it is probably on private property. I am the only person I know that has ever ridden it. If anyone else has, let this conference know.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
