Chicken Shack Fire Road Professional Review and Guide
"The Chicken Shack Queen Stage is mostly a dirt ride along the trails of several of Marin County’s open spaces, including Marinwood Open Space and Ignacio Valley, Loma Verde, and Pacheco Valle Open Space Preserves. The route follows a clockwise loop on terrain that is at times steep and rugged. The title is merely a play on words: Chicken Shack Fire Road is one of the primary segments of the ride; the main ascent is on Queenstone Fire Road; “queen stage” refers to the most difficult stage of a multiday bicycle race. That said,the Chicken Shack Queen Stage is not the most difficult ride in the book, but the climb up Queenstone Fire Road may have you walking your bike once or twice (or more!)."
