Rosewood/Space Mountain Loop

Description: This is a fun loop ride with lots of singletrack and switchbacks for your biking enjoyment. Make your way over to the base of Rosewood at Lynn Road via a combination of fireroads and paved roads. Then itís a moderate singletrack climb all the way up Rosewood to the picnic table. After a break, take the Los Robles singletrack over to the top of Space Mountain. From here you'll catch some thrills on your way down the Space Mountain singletrack and finish off the ride with the whoop-de-doo trail.
