Navigate: Top -->South Bay Area -->Wilder Ranch

Steve and I had been exchanging e-mails for a while and had been talking about riding together since I discovered his web site about a month ago. When he mentioned that he was thinking about going to Wilder Ranch I jumped on the opportunity. I had heard a lot of good things about this place and wanted to see if they were true.

To make matters more interesting Steve had just purchased a Helmet Camera to go along with his digital cam corder so we decided we would take a go at making a video. We had mixed results with the video recording and the video was at least partially responsible for my one mishap of the day. Hopefully we will do a little better with the video when we go to Downieville.

Overall I would say Wilder Ranch's reputation for having awesome singletrack mountain biking is well deserved. If you wanted a truely epic mountain biking experience you could a spend a week in Santa Cruz and ride this trail and some of the awesome trails on Skyline Boulevard (Hiway 35) such as Saratoga Gap.
