Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
It was a good ride, but it was not easy to find and there was more gravel road riding than I expected.  If you could find a better way to get to the Big Boulder section on a trail, it would be much better.
Would you ride again?
I would after trying many of the other ride options in the area.
Any suggestions?
Try to find a trail that parallels the Pacific Crest Trail.  We heard there was one that allows bikes and it might be better than taking all the dirt roads like we did to get to the Big Boulder Trail.  Make sure you have a good map or go with someone who knows the area.  We had a track on our gps and still made a few wrong turns causing us to retrace our tracks in a few places.
