It might be illegal, not sure

Go up the dirt road, climb for about two minutes until you get to a bench, ride down a little, then either go up the hill to the right, or down the hill to the left. I went to the left, watch out for huge mud puddle! Cross the small creek and try to climb the hill. Really steep hard climb.Keep going past the house at the top, then turn around and do a little steep downhilling. Short but fun!

There are two main trails, both are steep. From the bench near the bottom, the trail to the left isn't as steep because it winds around. It is fun coming down, but tricky when dry. The trail to the right of the bench is much steeper, but more direct. This trail is shouldn't be ridden down unless you've got skill. Watch out for wildlife on the path.

Customer Service

go up dirt road from parking lot and follow trail past a bench. go left across a creek and take trail to the top. go down the same way.

Be carefull, my friend ran over a rattlesnake on the trail. In April.
If you live in the area it's a fun trail, but dont make a trip because it's really short. Instead, keep going in to Moraga, turn right at Jack in the Box, continue untill you get to a fork in the road, go to the left away from the town of canyon, up the hill until you see a trailhead at the top of pinehurst. Park there and do the 8 Mile redwood loop, then climb up pinehurst road to your car. Thats a much longer ride with a fatty downhill before the road climb, and a fair amount of hidden trails and secrets. Have fun!

this trial rocks! A little short, do some laps for a good push. You need a fs bike for this. If you are good you will find air. Never see anyone on the trail. Let it rip down then ride the road back up. Also a bathroom at the bottom with water.

It was pretty intense, but I took the easiest trails because i'm still getting used to the bike I'm riding. There's a lot of ways to go and I am going to go explore further, but it is about a mile downhill maybe a little more. Definately not eight miles from what I say.

Customer Service

There are a couple ways to get to this trail. I rode it for the first time today and went up Ascot Drive, which is near 7-11 in Moraga. At the very top, you will see a fire road. Go up that and after a big hill, veer right. Then, keep going. You get to a paved street. This is Donald Drive. Go right on this and keep going, past houses. When the houses end, you will see a opening on the gate on your left. That is where the trail starts...enjoy.

this was a fun little ride for locals, but now most of the singletrack has been plowed into wide fire breaks.

Go to Miramonte High SChool. IF you cross moraga way from Ivy Dr. just keep going strait until u see a parking lot and then the school ends after that. Turn right into it and then you'll see a dirt road (used mainly for cars) if you keep going strait on it, it will turn into pavement, after about a few seconds if you look to your left you will see a tiny bridge that leeds to many single tracks. enjoy!
