Short ride, long ride? Hard ride, mellow ride? Give us some hints, then we can tell you "were to go", so to speak.....gacck said:Anyone have a good trail route for Annadel? I'm heading up today...any help would be awesome, otherwise we'll just wander around1
Well how long a loop do you want? Wherewolf's route is about 25 miles without his bonus loop and 30 with it. Take a look his map on his site. The trails I enjoy are South Burma, Lawndale, Schultz, and Ridge.gacck said:Anyone have a good trail route for Annadel?

Down Channel drive, up Richardson and South Burma, down Lawndale, up Schultz and Ridge, back down South Burma, half way down North Burma and across Live Oak, then down Rough Go and Cobblestone. That's about 25 miles with 3,400 ft. of climbing. When you finish do the bonus loop by going back up Richardson and all the way back down North Burma to the singletrack along Channel Drive. That adds about another 5-6 miles and 500 ft. of climbing. Map on my site.gacck said:Anyone have a good trail route for Annadel?
so chip did you get up to adel today? what did you think--still pretty technical (in many spots anyway)....gacck said:Wow...almost real time responses...awesome!! I know it used to be technical (which I love), but heard it is alot smoother now. We're looking for 15-20 miles mixing it up...
You bet. Actually not at technical as I remember, but then I was riding it back befores Steves trail was closed to mountain bikes and that was the killer technical climb. Took my 19 yo son up there today and he only about 3 spots he had to clip out for in the climbs...no falls for either of us...we did about 22 miles using a modified version of Steven Wolfs recommended route. Just as fun as I remember though. About an hour and 15 minute drive for us each way. Here is a screen capture from Google Earth...I downloaded my GPS data...gotta love technology.cohenfive said:so chip did you get up to adel today? what did you think--still pretty technical (in many spots anyway)....
Not sure about parking @ Channel (I got ripped off bigtime ), I'd head farther down to the end & pay the $4 to have Ranger Bob guard your ride :fgiraffe said:Any suggestions for cutting back Steve's route to ~15 miles/2k of climbing? Call it a day after you come back S Burma -> W. Richardson ?
.....you finish down Lawndale, not that Cobblestone's a bad way either! But gacck has a point it's not that much farther, and with Ranger Bob & Rangerette Karen, somewhat more peace-o-mind.Melt said:lately ive been parking at lawndale ... much closer to napa i think it cuts hella miles off the drive out there.
