Looking for interesting trails

Hi All

I'm new to the area, just came here about 6 months ago.
I'm looking for interesting trails to ride.
I like nice down hills but also appreciate a nice technical uphill.
I especially like the rock climbing and rock gardens.

I've been to Saratoga Gap, El corte de madera, page mill and the area but find all the open space trails to be very boring.
yes, the climbs are long.... but there is no technical challenge there...

if anyone can help me find some interesting trails I will really appreciate it.
I'd love to find new riding partners which share my passion for the trails.

Happy trails,
Avinoam

OP - We don't have many mountain bikers here on this forum (check out the norcal mtbr forum!). I haven't done a lot of mtb riding in the south bay but I do know you have plenty of options. Henry Coe SP, Wilder Ranch, Skeggs, Demo Forest, Nisene Marks, etc... all down that way. Do a quick search of norcal mountain biking and you will get plenty of hits! That traillink site is sad...
