Mostly fire roads but the cut through to Telegraph is an single track. Single track is mostly downhill (fast) if traveling north. Lots of gain at the beginning and end but enough downhill in the middle to recover for the hills at the end. Enjoy....

Yellow mustard flowers were awesome although overgrown. The mustard blocked some of the single track in the canyon. The fire road was nice. Great downhill fun and the uphill climbs were not bad.

This trail was tough, the first 2 miles is all uphills. I spent the first 45 minutes walking my bike to the summit. Due to time constraints, I back tracked at this point.

More to follow later.

This was a very nice and peaceful trail. There's many options available. We took the trail in the middle. (Didn't get the name) this hike was very peaceful.

Nice trail, very well kept. It was an overcast day so it was a good day for this hike, trail has no trees. We did the full loop and about mile 6 approx. we found a shaded area with a picnic table, perfect are for lunch :)
This trail is rated moderated, but in my opinion it should be rated "easy". I would say it's a good beginners trail.
It is just long (10 miles).
