Ride some of the Best trails at Skeggs.
Skeggs Point (El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve) is one of the top candidates for the "best mountain biking location" award in the Bay Area. The park covers a decent-sized area and features lots of trails, many of them first-class singletracks. These trails also range over a decent spectrum of skill levels.
The terrain of the entire park is rugged, hilly, and under forest cover (with the exception of a couple of small patches of chaparral).
We will start at Skeggs point. Ride the goodies at Skeggs.
Options: If we still have time.
This ride leads to a small vista point where a memorial plaque in memory of the people who lost their lives in the crash of the aircraft Resolution in this park. The actual spot is along Resolution Trail; hence the name. You may also notice the few bits and pieces of remaining debris from that plane crash spread over a couple of dozen yards downhill from the trail at one spot somewhere near the halfway point of this trail.
Expect to be there about 3 hours if you plan to do the entire ride. There will be several bailout points for anyone who needs to leave earlier.

Please note: If you're coming from the north, the parking lot is on the left and you cannot legally turn there (there may be a Sheriff Deputy waiting to pop you). You will need to go down a bit further and carve a U-turn where it is safe.
