MOUNTAIN BIKING

Learn about our unique redwood-forest ecosystem and its amazing array of wildlife and spectacular scenery by mountain bike.  Good exercise and carbon-free, too!  Our Guided Mountain-Bike Toursallow beginners to gain mountain-biking experience on our wide trails through redwood groves, meadows, and creeks.  We have several different trails from which to choose, and each adventure is custom designed to meet your interests and riding abilities.  Intermediate and advanced riders can be introduced to some of the North Coast’s famous single-track trails.

If you prefer, strike out on your own with a Bicycle Rental.  We offer men’s and women’s Cannondale mountain bikes and children’s bikes to allow you to explore the wonders of the redwood parks.  Bicycles aren’t allowed on most of the parks’ trails, but renting bikes is a wholesome, low-impact way to get to some of the best trailheads.
