A short but sweet mountain bike loop, that is mostly used by locals. Take the Elevator Trail to the John Brooks Trail.

Belmont is lucky to have a secluded area tucked-away so close to the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area.

MTB, hike, run, or do all three while walking your dog!

Like any multi-use trails, mountain bikers will encounter hikers. Hikers will encounter dog walkers. Please be courteous. Dog Walkers: Keep your dog(s) on a leash. Belmont PD does do enforcement sporadically.

Beware of rattle snakes! Not kidding...this place has more snakes than hikers by about a 1000.1. Snakes cleverly camouflage themselves! You think?

Easy to find and get away from the Suburbs. Lots of trail options, so watch for mountain bikers (who seem very nice and hiker-aware).

If you prefer shade, hike down Lake Road Trail, go around the dog lake (woof!), up the Berry Trail. Southern trails seem a little more exposed.

Oh, and keep your eyes open for the abandoned cars hidden here and there. Surprise!

It was a nice peaceful trail. Easy enough for me to start my bike adventure (newbie bike rider). Definitely will be coming back.
