Camp Tamarancho Loop, Marin County, CA
Despite being considered the birthplace of mountain biking, Marin County doesn’t actually allow mountain bikes on its legendary singletrack. Which is why, about 15 years ago, a contingent of local hardcores and high-profile advocates struck an exclusive deal with a local Boy Scout troop, who happened to own some of the most beautiful undeveloped land in the Bay Area. Since then, Camp Tamarancho has become one of the greatest networks of maintained mountain bike trails in the world, known for its variety of terrain and consistent ups and downs. The Camp Tamarancho Loop is a 10.5-mile sampler that climbs up switchbacks and steep rock gardens, and cruises through old-growth oak and redwood stands. And the loop gets better every year: it got a significant upgrade recently with the addition of the downhill-only “flow” trail, Endor.
