Routes / Trails

Mt Hamilton - Road
Description: At 18.2 miles from the base to the James Lick Observatory at nearly 4,300ft, Mt Hamilton is highest point in the Bay Area. A round trip from the bottom at Alum Rock will net you nearly 5k feet of climbing and more than that if you ride in from lower points in the city. On a clear day you can see the other three highest peaks from the Observatory including Mt. Umunhum, Mt Diablo and Mt Tam.
Difficulty: Distance aside, this is an intermediate climb with moderate grades and plenty of places to rest. Pace yourself and bring food/water to make to each of the refill points and the biggest hurdle will only be your mindset.
Location: From Hwy 680 take Alum Rock Ave to the East towards Hwy 130. Limited parking is available at the base, Alum Rock park or in surrounding neighborhoods.

Mt Umunhum - Road/MTB
Description: At Nearly 3,500ft, Mt Umunhum is the third highest peak in the Bay Area. Your climb (Suffering) starts on either side of Hicks Rd (road bikes) or in Quicksilver County Park (CX/Gravel/MTB). At the intersection of Hicks/Umunhum Roads, you can continue on pavement or branch off to Woods Road (dirt) in the Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve. Taking Woods to Barlow (dirt) you'll rejoin the paved portion at the Bald Mountain Trail parking lot. Roadies will continue up on pavement and the offroad adventure types can stay in the shade on the new trail to the top. At the peak you'll find information signs detailing the history of the peak and its use as a military base and part of the early warning radar array along the Pacific coast.
Difficulty: Advanced - The climbs in the dirt are easier grades than the paved portions, but still reaching double digit grades for extended periods. The paved section can just be brutal. There are restrooms, but no running water so come prepared.
Location: South San Jose via Hicks Rd off of Camden or Almaden Valley via Old Almaden Road at Quicksilver County Park

Demonstration State Forest AKA- Demo - MTB
Description: The best MTB trails short of driving all the way to Santa Cruz, and they're 100% legal. Still an active renewable logging source, Demo and it's 2600 acres of forest has been a mainstay of the MTB world for San Jose locals for decades. There are multiple trail and fire road options that can keep you looping all day if you have the energy. Just be prepared for the climb back out to the parking area, it's easy but it's a drag.
Difficulty: All Levels - Best to have a riding buddy for this one. It's remote enough that even a small technical can be serious under the right/wrong conditions. No running water, little if any cell reception.
Location: From San Jose, take Hwy 17 south to Summit Rd. Continue south on Summit to Highland and follow the road for 4 miles to the trailhead. Once there you'll unload and continue on 2 wheels to the fire road 'Buzzard Lagoon' where you'll climb to the start of all the fun.

Gold Hill Grade (China Camp) - MTB
Description: 1.45 miles of pleasure and pain, near central San Rafael a great learning experience for new riders or an everyday challenge for the pros
Difficulty: All Levels
Location: From Hwy 101 take central San Rafael exit, take Grand Ave toward Dominican Univ to Locust St, take to end

Paradise Drive - Road
Description: Great views of San Francisco and most of the North Bay, usually quite roads
Difficulty: Beginner
Location: Off Hwy 101 at the Paradise Dr exit in Corte Madera set up and follow the road until you reach Tiburon

Tamarancho - MTB
Description: Pretty much the only legal single track left in Marin County (day pass required)
Difficulty: All Levels
Location: Hwy 101 exit Sir Francis Drake Blvd W towards Fairfax, look for the Camp Tamarancho signs on left. If you get to Whites Hill you’ve gone too far

We recommend that you confirm trail openings and locations with local resources.
