Beginners may like the Emma McCray trail, which leads into one of the state’s incredible Redwood forests. The trail itself is pretty easy and does not require an immense amount of physical fitness, but the views are world-class.

Featuring long climbs and sharp technical drops, this trail was meant for adrenaline-seeking riders with plenty of experience. Not to mention, it offers numerous amazing views out over the sea along the way.
