The Ivan Dickson Memorial Trek follows the Ivan Dickson Memorial Loop in Briones Regional Park. The route pays homage to Ivan Dickson (1898–1993), a legendary hiker who was active well into his eighties. While many memorials tend to pay tribute to benefactors and political leaders, this one acknowledges a man who lived and breathed the trails. This is a challenging ride on graded trails that can be bumpy. The route is consistently hilly, and a few of the climbs and descents are quite steep. All of the descents are rideable, but the Spengler Trail has a few steep “hike-a-bike” segments.
