Cancelled due to rain -de la veaga

  • This location is shown only to members

  • The hillside consists of multiple singletrack loops totaling 6-7 miles intermingling between redwood groves, oak woodlands, Branciforte creek, mixed forests and grasslands. At the "top of the world" aka "Corona Trail"- there's a lookout offering an awesome view of the Monterey Bay and east Santa Cruz.

    Multiple loops in different directions provide variety (and increased mileage) in an already diverse area to ride. Be prepared for rocks, ruts, roots, drops, flowy sections, short steep climbs, off camber and narrow sections with high penalty for mistakes in some areas. There's a short fire road climb for a nice break between singletrack sessions. This park allows for you to gain speed and be challenged at the same time. If we have extra time let's check out the more challenging and partly un-rideable b-40 trail.

    Although small, "De La" offers a variety of singletrack in a beautiful area to practice your technical skills. 

    This is a group ride, so we will stick together. We stop halfway up La Corona to re-group, and will do so throughout the ride. 

    As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding down rocky trails.  If the ride is relatively short so you shouldn't need too much in the way of supplies.  Water, a small snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for these rides.

    With the winter settling in these rides will obviously be subject to location or date changes.  That being said the rains haven't really started up yet so lets get out and ride while we can.

    It's been raining. Still is. De la is not a good place to ride with rain. Will have to cancel this ride.

    You've got my curiosity piqued about this b-40 trail. So when you say "partly un-rideable" is it because you'll end up freeriding for a bit or is there an obstacle?

    • Fredric

      oh I wasn't aware that upper section was called B-40.
