    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). 

    Meet at Skeggs Point parking lot by 9:30am, ready to roll by 9:45am.

    We will start at Skeggs point.  Ride all the goodies at Skeggs.

    If you still have energy, we can ride to Purisima and ride Whitmore Gulch.

    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 ALL DAY / ~8 hours if you plan to do the entire ride.

    There will be several bailout points for anyone who needs to leave earlier.

    Type of Ride:

    Intermediate Technical trails

    Advance for endurance due to length of ride and climbing. 

    Pack lots of water -100 oz or more or enough to last a whole day).

    Pack a lunch / Snack.

    Everyone is welcome.
