 Open Gabs for Old Gringo
Don't know if you're interested in stuff further afield, but you might try the north side of the Gabs. I've done Manzanita, Devil's Punchbowl, and Burkhart twice each this year, and all 3 are in top shape. Manza has seen recent trail work, and is in the best shape I've seen in 15 years! Also, Burkhart is great, but they did an overzealous brushing job...butchered some of the most magnificent manzanita trees. :(

    Thanks for the tips. I have never ridden any of those trails. Is there info on this site?

        Want to ride with me and find out how old I am? Or are you just a cyber stalker?

      This site:

      Manzanita
      Devil's Punchbowl


      Another site (with better pics and maps):

      Manzanita
      Devil's Chair

      No page for Burkhart, but if you go to Punchbowl parking, go uphill on Burkhart Trail (starts right at parking lot) and join the dirt road, keep riding up to the junction, then go right (west) for Burkhart, or left (east) for Devil's Chair.

        PS: The $3 parking fee at Punchbowl was canceled years ago...parking is free.
