Tell me if I am crazy or not.
My first inclination was to climb on Kings Mountain Rd and then take Tunitas Creek down to 1 and then head north to HMB. But that is a big detour to the south.
But I was gazing at the map last night and I noticed a shorter alternative: climb on Kings Mountain Rd, go north to Skyline a bit, and then cut through Purisima Creek Redwoods OSP on the Purisima Creek trail which ends onto Higgins Canyon Rd, which I can then ride to 1 and into HMB. Can anyone vouch for the trail quality there?
A third alternative would be to take Cypress Ridge Rd from Skyline, which looks to be an unpaved road. Is that open all the way through down to Higgins Canyon?
I will be riding a CX bike, so a little dirt or gravel is no issue. I have to get ready for the Levi's GranFondo anyway.
