HOT HOT HOT! It is very sunny out there. Bring sun block! We drove around on a few of the blue "more difficult" trails. Our friend was not very comfortable on the inclines and nearly drove his truck off the side of a hill, but all was fine in the end. At the end of the day we drove up to Hector Heights, which has an amazing view. There was only one other truck up there. We sat in the shade of our vehicles and had a late lunch. We were all worn out at the end of the day. I would definitely go back.

I just went to Pig Pond and back, most all down hill on the way back. Plan on being in shape or taking your time. It was very nice lots of hills, wildlife is everywhere I saw nice deer while catching my breath. Lots of grass I did not see any snakes but as things heat up you would have to be very careful.

I really like this trail. It has both fire roads and some single track trails. It is an endurance workout and you can make it as hard as you want or as long as u want. You can also make it short and sweet. Its a close distance to Los Banos so its perfect for me.

This Bike trail is awesome had a great time at Pacheco. It has some really fast downhill clean roads and great views I highly recommend this to anyone who is a beginner to an expert.

I rode my Scott Scale 29comp. Let me tell you there were some trails there that were even too big for me and my bike to climb up so there is walking up hill. I would I will be going back next week to take a different trail.

Right now, I chose to rate this trail with 4 stars because it offers a decent challenge to any skilled rider. In the summer everything is dry so it doesn't offer much in the way of scenery. BRING WATER! No potable water. Parking is $10 (7-20-13). I can't say that these trails are worth the $10 in parking, but for some new trails to try out it's not that bad overall. This trail has a few different loops you can take to make the ride short or long. I would recommend that anyone that ventures to these trails for the first time should choose a loop that starts the same as this track. The beginning of this track takes you to the highest point of the trail system at the start of the ride. After that, the majority of trail system offers various positive and negative increases in elevation, but nothing as significant the initial climb. You could always do it last, but I'd rather do the main uphill climb first. Some of the trail along this track is quite steep and the trails have a bit of loose dirt/gravel etc.

Used to trail run along the trails in the nature area way in the back of the park. Beautiful area. I stopped hiking/running here when I came face to face with a full size mountain lion out there. I'll be back, but scared the crap out of me.
