NEW TRAIL FOR YOU TO RIDE! The new West Englesmans Trail reroute in Wilder Ranch is now OPEN! MBOSC and State Parks have been working hard putting the final touches on this trail, and we are so excited that 5,500' of brand new singletrack is now ready to ride. The new trail winds down through oak forests and meadows, and has a lower average grade than the old fire road, and is designed to be an enjoyable hike or ride uphill or downhill.

We had 338 volunteers donate 1,978 hours of time to help build this trail in addition to 950 hours of MBOSC staff time and countless more hours of State Parks staff time. The project cost about $47,000, which was funded by Old Cabin Classic 2016-18 proceeds, two Trap a Rock Lobster campaigns, and a $15,000 grant from REI.

MBOSC wants to extend a HUGE thanks to the Santa Cruz District Trails Crew, especially Chris Pereira and Jose Castañeda for helping to make this project possible.

We hope you love the new West Engelsmans Trail! Don't forget: because the trail will be the the primary way in and out of the Wilder Ranch Backcountry for most folks using the park, the trail will be busy. Stay alert, ride slowly and courteously, and expect oncoming traffic on foot, tire, or hoof!

Outstanding, MBOSC!

Anyone who has ridden there the last couple days--

Is Wilder still wet & sloppy in many places?

Or has the classic loop (Enchanted, Old Cabin, Wild Boar, etc) dried out at this point?
