Nice loop around the park. I did it on a mountain bike. Even though it isn't listed as an activity, you can bike this loop and the lower part of Stream trail.
The track isn't accurate at the beginning. If you go closer to Redwood Rd, there is a spot to cross the stream and get over to West Ridge trail.
Going up West Ridge is difficult at the beginning, especially on a bike. I would prefer going up West Ridge and getting the hard part out of the way early. The rest is pretty easy. Going down from East Ridge isn't as hard on the brakes.
Both trails are relatively wide. East Ridge is very wide close to the Skyline gate. Watch out for all the loose dogs.
