The gravel course has roughly 4,600 feet of climbing in 42 miles. The route starts with a south loop through Redwood Park to the Sunrise rest stop at the top of Redwood Road. It continues north through Redwood and Tilden parks through Wildcat Canyon to a second rest stop at Island Picnic Area. Both rest stops are shared with the road courses. Finally, relatively easy riding on Moraga Way takes you 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.
- At mile 3.1 turn left onto Pinehurst Road. Some other routes go right here, so be careful not to follow them.
