What an awesome hike! You'd only be able to follow this trail with the app tracking your progress unless you're an absolute expert navigator. Walking along the mountain bike trails was really cool. We walked out on the right side trails until the airborne/sidewinder juncture and back along the opposite side. Tons of cool mushrooms and beautiful redwoods. It was a bit muddy though and steep at parts, so beware.

I hiked this trail with my cousin who's a UCSC student. The trail is wide and while it is primarily used for MTB, we enjoyed it on foot just the same. Look for mushrooms, unique art pieces, and other hidden delights while on the trail.
