Save time and increase your fun with a mountain bike adventure with Shuttle Smith Adventures.
Experience the majestic Santa Cruz redwoods and the breathtaking ocean views. Start at the top of the Nisene Marks Forest and scream, or relax, your way down the 15-mile descent back to Aptos Village. You can spend an entire day riding challenging single track loops starting at the top of the Soquel Demonstration Forest, one of the leading free-ride and cross-country destinations in Northern California. This area was made famous in mountain biking videos by local riders Cam and Tyler McCaul, Greg Watts, Jamie Goldman, and others. And with over 12,000 acres and 62 miles of forest trails and fire roads, there’s sure to be a ride for everyone, beginner to advanced rider.
As you wind your way down the mountain, keep your eyes open – but not off the trail – for the spectacular views back to the beach and the Pacific.
