Socal - Monterey County - North of Ragged Point NickNames: #PrewittLoop prewitt trail
Take US Hwy 1 north from Morro Bay for about 1 hour 15 mins. Turn out is on right side past the Prewitt valley and ranger station. Follow the sign to the single track and then the single track up up and away. Be ready for poison oak, walking sections, and six hours of epic singletrack. This is for advanced riders only. Be prepared.
I did the loop clockwise(north to south) and would again if I had to.
You can also start back by Sand Dollar beach behind the Pacific Valley Ranger station. The trail climbs up one side of Plaskett valley and comes back along the other. The Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers have been putting lots of work into this 13 mile loop trail and both ends are in good shape. The middle section is still fairly rough and will require walking. Keep a careful eye out for the tread as it fades. Be ready for PO! (longsleeves, rubbing alcohol afterwards) Expect excellent views of the Pacific, redwood forests, misty valleys, waterfalls, creek crossings, and other amazing views.
This is not a beginners trail. Intermediate riders should use cation. However, it is a one-of-a-kind epic ride worth the drive.
