Harkins Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Nestled on the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains just east of Half Moon Bay is the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve. The 2,519-acre park offers a variety of bike trails, including one of the region's most awesome singletracks, the Whittemore Gulch Trail. This is what mountain biking is all about: tight switchbacks, precarious drop-offs, negotiating through rocks and winding around trees, all in a spectacular redwood forest."
