This place is called the "Teacups" and it has lots of good jumps everywhere. They have not been maintained in a long time but there are still many lines. We're in the process of rebuilding so it will only get better.

I've Ridden this trail many times and most of the jumps are dissapearing and there is a big tree in the middle that fell down about a year ago. This trail needs some reconstruction, so whoever built it...please rebuild it!!!!...for the most part it is a fun trail if your a beginner and you want to have some fun...there a re like 20 doubles around there and a some tabletops and a bowl....also, people play paint ball there so it'll be awhile to ride if they are playing.

southbound on 101, go west on E. Capitol Expressway, park at the Denneys. If you get to Senter, you have gone too far. The jumps are next to the creek (opposite side from driving range) below bridge. Get on your bike, follow bike path under bridge, cross creek, double back under bridge, jumps are to the left.

These trails are called the " TEACUPS " not capitol expressway. I do not know what everyone else is worried about, I've been riding there for 15 years with hardly any problems. The jumps are currently worn down and are covered with paintballs but there ar still plenty of good lines.

I rode this trail once when I was about 10 years old. I got chased by members of the VPT (Varios Putos) gang, and never returned. As another reviewer pointed out, pack some heat. In case you do get caught by the locals, I recommend riding this "trail" on a lowrider bicycle, preferrably with red accents on your person; do not wear anything blue, or you'll get "ganked" on site/sight. Also, watch out for anyone named "Smiley" or "Lil' Puppet." I gave this route a 5 for Technical Difficulty in the event you run into the locals. The amount of skilled riding you will have to do to escape would make Brian Lopes cringe with envy.

Keep driving until you hit Almaden Expressway, head south and into Almaden-Quicksilver Park. There is no known gang activity here, except for rumors of some albino clan that burn crucifixes t night on the hillsides.

This trail sounds like it's conected to Hellyer County Park. If it runs along the creek it is! It's a good but seldom used trail that hikers and bikers usually find dead bodies laying by the way side... Be careful and pack a .45 pistol with you. the good part is when you get to Hellyer Park there is a Velodrome there. The neighborhood sucks but it's a nice park! Have Fun!
