On Saint Patrick's Day I am leading a four to five mile hike to Windwolves in the morning but am planning on riding the San Emigdo Canyon "after" our hiking trip. You are welcome to join us for the hike but if you are only interested in the mountain bike part of this trip than meet me at the picnic area at the trailhead at 1:15. From the trailhead we will ride up the canyon to the Reflection Pond Trailhead which is about five miles away. The ride up the canyon is on a dirt road which is relatively smooth for the most part but is not smooth enough for a road bike. While I wouldn't rate the ride up the canyon as strenuous it is deceptive and steeper than it looks and will provide a good workout. If time we may hike up the Reflection pond trail which is steep. Make sure you bring a lock to lock your bike. There is a bike rack at the Reflection Pond trailhead. The park closes at 5:00 so we will be back by then. We also might explore another hiking area up another steep ridge if we have time.
