Stop into the shop for some maps of local riding areas. Here are some great online resources and some notable trails:
Sulphur Mountain Road – Oakview, CA – Fire road that goes up for about 7 miles.
Ventura River Preserve – Ojai, CA – A small open space with a nice little trail system. Best way across the riverbed is via the Wills Creek trail. Once through the rocky section, there are some good trails around the hillsides.
Nordoff Ridge, Gridley, Pratt, Sisar Canyon – Ojai, CA – Single track for 3 miles up. Bottom section requires a little hiking.
Sycamore Canyon – Point Mugu – Great, all-around riding for all levels.
Romero Canyon – Santa Barbara – The initial ascent is steep, but mellows out a bit after. Great single track.
