This trip will take beginners and advanced level mountain bikers alike through some of the most beautiful coastal redwood forests that Northern California has to offer. Santa Cruz is widely recognized as one of California's top mountain biking destination spots. The huge redwood forests keep trails cool and a bit tacky, so you don't have to deal with the dusty conditions you find in most parts of Norcal mid-summer. This trip will afford opportunities to work on a whole host of different riding techniques depending on the riders' ability level. It is recommended that participants be of a moderate level of physical fitness or better in order to maximize enjoyment. We will be camped at Henry Cowell State Park, just about 10 minutes from the boardwalk and downtown Santa Cruz. This trip includes guides, transportation, camping fees and all meals. You provide your own bike and helmet. If you don't have a bike, we rent them! Check out our equipment rental page for prices and details. Minimum age is 16.
