Soil condition, loose dirt to hard pack. Many trails at the back side of the park towards the hay fields. Some single track and some fire roads.

You can start at the kiddy park side and climb the dirt switch back to the top of the hill. At the top are several ways down to a smaller hill climb. While this is a small area and not a place a would recommend as a destination it is very suitable for training and developing skills. Since it is close to where I live it is a great place for me to get a quick ride in. It is not unusual that I spend an hour or more just doing all the different trails.

Stooopid little kiddie park in Garlic town. Why is this here?

Customer Service

None, this is a damn jogging path, about as exciting for bikes as riding downtown.

I like this trail because it is short and sweet and you can do it if you don't want to devout all day to a ride. I would recommend this to any cross country rider who lives in gilroy or is around for the molment. I would not recomend this for an all day ride because there is not enough trail.
In the begining its a hard climb on pavement followed by a lot of loose dirt (depending on the time of year) After that, the dirt hardens out and you can get some speed even though your going uphill. After the initial clime you get some pay off but watch out at the bottom. Depending on the time of year you can get all mucked up from the acumulation of water! Be careful with you shifting comming down hill. If you get too high, you won't be able to shift fast enough to start the steep climb at the bottom.

At the end of the ballpark go up & around the fence. Then ride behind the hayfield. Theres many different options from there. I like to follow the main trail till you come down a big slope and theres a steep hill and turn at the end of it. then you do a big clim not taking any switchbacks and at the end you get some prety good down hill in thats not too difficult.
