Well Monday I turned 16, and was lucky enough to have the day off due to teacher in service day, so my friend and I decided to head out to Rockville in Fairlfield, CA, about 1.5 hours away. It was the first time I had been there and it was pretty awesome. It is basically a HUGE "park". At the trailhead, you can take a fireroad up to the top of a huge hill, where there is a lake and trails going in every direction, or at the trailhead you can hang a right and let the singletrack begin. It was kind cool cause all over the park there were cows to keep the grass down. So you kind of had to dodge cows occasionally and pick your routes accordingly. We found a pretty fun loop, you had to go through a fence that was made to keep the cows out, so there were no cows on the loop. But the loop was about 2 miles, really fun, fast, tight, singletrack with some awesome down hill sections. Here a some pics:
About 500 ft. from the trail head. The trail runs right though the center.
A few of the moo moos.
A few pics of some of the trails:

Lunch break. We picked up Safeway sandwitches prior to the ride
Upper lake, and a few views
It was quite nice to finally hit the trail, hopefully on Sunday I will be able to hit a more local trail (Salmon Falls).
