Ripon River Trail - TRAIL

Ripon River Trail - Trail, Ripon, California

Go down Parallel Rd (runs along freeway) until it ends at a Parking Lot. The trail for the most part is gravel walking path at the beginning go under freeway and ride along river it will open up a little way down and to the right are some bigger BMX jumps and to the left is some tight single track there are many options but some lead into the water or just stop (I think they are homeless walking paths) the place can be like a maze. My buddies and I are trying to make it more organized. You will go back and forth from the singletrack to the walking path. You can make about an 8-10 mile loop out of the place and the maze of trails. We have added a little pyramid and even found a couple man-made log bridges. Can be a little sandy. Nothing advanced virtually no hills except for up and down a levee. With some work and added obstacles can be a fun place for the area. To get into any really sweet trails you are going to have to drive at least an hour away. Fun for what it is and hope that it gets better. We are trying.

I've put in several days of trail work out here. It's a place to ride after work. I've created some CX lap segments on Strava. The place is not a destination to travel to for epic rides but it is a decent place to get in a work out. Watch for swimmers on the trails. The kids are always making adjustments to the BMX area so be careful if you are not planning on seeking air. Lots of logs/ branches on the west side single track. Busted a derailleur there. Gets very sandy in the summer. A huge part of the single track on the west side is now fenced off. That section was nice. Miss riding it.

Just rode the trail again today and posted some arrow signs on the trees so that you know which fork in the trail to take. Also found some nice log rides and drop offs that were already out there. Dirt is pretty good if not a little sandy. Place isn't perfect but has a lot of potential.
