Socal - San Luis Obispo County - Downtown San Luis Obispo NickNames: #MadonnaMountain hoosefeld, the rock garden
From Marsh St. Head toward the entrance to the 101 Freeway South. Just right before you enter the freeway, turn right and enter the parking lot. Note, paralleling the 101 on ramp road is BONUS SINGLE TRACK :-)
The fireroad climb up is about 3 miles. It wraps around the steep mountain. Once at the top, enjoy the view. Head back down. BUT.
When you go down, head left. Go left. Then, find the single track at the top. Meaning, at the top, there is a right and left way down. Go left. Then, go straight, dont head down. If you find this, your stoked.
It is over the bars fun. Technical. Steep. Scenic. Winds you through an oak habitat. Single track through some great trail. Through a fence or two. Dont worry about it, its ok since your up high.
Take this back to the fire road you came up on. Then, for an extra credit, go right at the fork when you came up on, instead of going down. THIS extra credit takes up the hill behind madonna inn. It takes you down a steep single track once you climb it. GLTY.
Short, fun, plenty of time to do other things in slo.
