It seems that the Switchback Construction Crew was on strike the day they made this section of trail, because there is nothing easy about this climb up the rutted, dusty fire road. Don’t worry; the rest of the ride certainly isn’t like this. Despite the huffing and puffing, try, if you can, to enjoy the pretty live oaks and chaparral that surround you.

Treat the trail, wildlife, and fellow riders with respect. • Ride on open trails only. Respect trail and road closures (ask if not sure), avoid trespassing on private land, obtain permits and authorization as required, and leave gates as you found them or as marked. • Leave only tire prints. Pack out what you pack in. No one likes to see the trash someone else has left behind. • Never intentionally spook animals. An unannounced approach, a sudden movement, or a loud noise startles most animals.
