UPDATE: Several different versions of the gravel route were peviously shown here. It has now been revised to avoid Chabot Park trails and Wildcat Drive, both of which were severely damaged in winter storms and are no longer available. We are fortunate to have so many good gravel options in the East Bay hills!

Description

The gravel course has roughly 5,400 feet of climbing in 48 miles. The route starts with a south loop through Redwood Park to the Sunrise rest stop at the top of Redwood Road. It turns north through Joaquin Miller and Tilden parks to a second rest stop at Island Picnic Area. Both rest stops are shared with the road courses. It returns along the ridge of the Berkeley Hills to a fun descent of East Ridge trail back to the start for the post-ride meal.

Alternative Car-Free Start

The alternative start in Tilden Park is not available for this route. You must sign in at St Mary's College.

Tricky Bits

  • At mile 3.1 turn left onto Pinehurst Road. Some other routes go right here, so be careful not to follow them.
  • Be careful leaving the rest stops. Your course is different than all the road courses, so don't follow them.
