Miwok 2011

Not that many rocks, but when they say single track, they mean mostly overgrown singletrack. They could use our Massanutten Trail maintenance crew! In other places the footings were difficult due to the camber of the trail. I took 3 tumbles and have the scraped knees to prove it - no major damage.

 

The course has a lot climbing and descending, some of it on fire roads and approximately 7 miles of pavement, mostly in the beginning and in the last mile. But there are lots of nice trails in between, especially through the Muir Woods and high over the Pacific Ocean.

 

You do Miwok for the scenery: The Golden Gate, the views of the Pacific, Muir Woods, the Dipsea Trail, etc. I'm not sure I will do it again, but it was definitely worth doing once.
