Best of Demo via Aptos

Best of Demo.

Soquel Demonstration Forest is a location that probably ranks in the top three of the favorites of most mountain bikers around the Bay Area. Its official status is different from most other mountain biking locations around the Bay Area: Instead of being an open space preserve, or a national, state, county, or city park, Demo Forest is a state forest.

We will ride either  Sawpit, Tractor or Braille. 

If you still have energy after that, we can do an extra loop.

Ridge Trail - Great Singletrack trail that leads to Corral, Sulphur, Tractor , Braille and Sawpit trails. 

Sawpit Trail - The longest single loop possible at this first-rate mountain biking destination.

Braille Trail - Possibly the most-often-ridden route at this prime mountain biking destination, which traverses the most popular Braille Trail.

Tractor Trail . High speed, swooping, star wars fun. This trail totally rocks. Getting to the trail is involves a little bit of technical riding but once to Tractor you can really let it rip. Not steep and not technical at all. Twisty, turny run down the mountain through redwoods and pines. Once to the bottom you have about a 1000 vertical feet to climb out, totally worth it.
