El Corte de Madera - Skegg's

Lets ride this one again, I will keep this ride to 8-9 miles.

This will be intermediate level group ride in the wooded single-track paradise known as El Corte de Madera Creek Open Space Preserve (commonly called Skegg's Point after the CalTrans scenic overlook/parking lot that is adjacent to it) in Woodside, Ca.

We will meet at 9:30 AM & leave from the "scenic" parking lot.
Tires roll at 9:40 AM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present.

 There may be some parking on the side of the road at the trailhead, however the parking lot will have many more. I plan to park at the scenic lot or on the road side.

Difficulty: Difficult; challenging climbs; technical singletrack with rocks, drops, ruts, & roots.

Trail surface: 60 percent singletrack, 40 percent dirt road.

Best to ride in summer when trails are dry and has lots of shade. Plan to ride less than 10 miles, 2 -3 hours?

From 280, exit onto highway 84 West and head through Woodside toward the hills.

Follow 84 to the top of the hill at the 4 way intersection.

Turn right on Skyline/35 heading North for about 5-6 miles until you see the above

sign for the parking lot on the right. 

Meet at the parking lot near the Skeggs Point entrance. You may see cars parked on the roadside at various spots, but where we're meeting is a real parking lot. Please note that if you're coming from the north, the parking lot is on the left and you cannot legally turn there. You will need to go down a bit further and carve a U-turn where there is a pullout.

Please remember to wear a helmet, bring water, and check that your bike is ready to ride. Also remember to carry an extra tube and a chain master link with you that fits your bike. Its ok if you need help to repair it, you will have the items needed to keep your ride going.

***Please remember, a helmet is required for all our rides.***
Rain will cancel and I will post an update by 8 AM if we will not ride.

    Excellent ride! The climb was just right. I was done by the time we finished in the parking lot.

    Great early morning ride. It was nice to show this place to a few members that have not been to Skegg's before. Always a fun ride.

    Can someone bring some tri-flow or similar? I need a few squirts/drops and can't find my can... The bikeshop near me doesn't open until 10am.
