Added by Isaac Orloff

One of the few legal mountain bike specific trail systems within driving distance of the San Francisco Bay Area, these trails attract hundreds of visitors every weekend.

As with many trail systems there are multiple routes and loops available at Sequel Demonstration forest of varying lengths and difficulty. The 3 main trails are all accessed via the same parking area on highland way. The most popular trail is the all skill levels "Flow" trail, followed by two shorter more technical descents "Braille" and "Sawpit". Expect to spend a significant amount of time climbing fire roads to descend single track. To ride multiple trails, loop back to top of the mountain via "Sulphur Springs Road". This is one of the only places mountain bikers can ride without anticipating hikers, equestrians or other interruptions of multi-use trail systems. Average distance for rides is between 11-25 miles. These trails are usually ridden in the mornings to avoid the warmer temperatures. Trail map located here: http://calfire.ca.gov/resource...

Remember to anticipate the 3-mile climb out to the parking area, if riding in the late afternoon pack a light.

There is no "Short" exit out of demo forest. Be prepared and ride smart.
