Summary:
Lots of fire road/ equine trails rolling with some punchy climbs, nothing to tech. I road for around for a few hours on my cross bike. Super fun! Might be to easy for you D.H. guys and gals but a great place to get your feet wet or test your new bike out

Recommended Route:
I would enter on the back side just past the golf course and start climbing, gotta earn the turns, after that it fun just to explore, every trail is a different, and there is no shame in walking it first, and have fun!

Summary:
You will notice the reviews for this place range from very good to very poor. I can only guess the folks giving the 1 rating didn't explore enough. There are some brutal climbs and a few very steep ST as well as lots of fireroads and even a paved bike path around the lake so if you bring the wife and kids they can cruise around the lake while you check out the ST.

Recommended Route:
The path I took was to enter the trail on the right side before entering park (park in the "Park and Ride lot just after exiting Via Verde). Climb the fire road about a mile until you hit your first ST on your left. Follow this until it brings you down close to the main park road. You can cross here and catch another ST that climbs to a fire road, then it is a tough climb up to an excellent view of the lake. Next comes a very steep ST that really tested my hydralic brakes. You could keep going from here or head back to the road and exit the park through the main entrance and back across the bridge to your car. That loop is only about 45 min-1 hour but it is a lot of climbs so god cardio (for me at least).

Summary:
I rode this trail just after the rains and it did not hold up well. I found the trail to be quit boring but maybe that was because I hit way too much mud. In any event, this trail did not make a good first impression and definately is not a decent trail to ride after the rains. Would have been nice to see the single track that everyone speaks about but could not get through all the mud to find it. This trail may be better in the Spring or Summer when it is dry.

Summary:
Bonelli Park is not the place you want to go if you are looking for scenic all day ride. It is the place you want to go if: 1. you live in the area need a quick fix. 2. you are riding with a beginner 3. you are riding alone. Bonelli has single track , fire road , climbs, descents, obstacles. they can be extremely hard or extremely easy. Its dependent on your level of fitness and capabilities. the wildest animal I have seen here is a coyote and only one in the 10 yrs I have been riding here. It is a great place to ride at night,though it is closed you can still get in.

Recommended Route:
Park at Bracket airport. jump the chain and head up the hill.
