China Camp + back side

We'll meet at the kiosk at the entrance to the China Camp State Park campground (right off N. San Pedro Road), and ride a roughly 15-16 mile loop. Parking is free and very easy on the shoulders of N. San Pedro Road. The route will be: climbing up Bay View, to Echo, to the top of the old Nike radar site, down around the back side, back up the fire road (backtracking to Echo), down Echo, across to the east side of the park on Bay View and Oak Ridge, and then back to the starting point on Shoreline.

The track is fast-rolling hard-packed dirt singletrack, with a few short paved road and fireroad connector sections. There is not much sustained climbing because the highest point in the park is only somewhere around 900 feet. The route is maybe 90% beginner and intermediate singletrack, with a few tricky advanced sections on both sides of the hill which require more caution.

I'm setting a limit of 10 riders for this one because I want to make sure we can keep the group together for the entire ride. We'll ride at a decent pace, but with no rider left behind.

Hope to see you all out there! Maybe some lunch at Sol Food or elsewhere in San Rafael after the ride?

      Yes, I hope to get back into a semi-regular weekend rotation of Tamarancho, China Camp, Annadel, and Wilder Ranch on the weekends this Winter. Skeggs, too.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
