lots of hiking trails really, nothing to exciting almost like riding down a boring version of lower brakeout.... few little things here and there but nothing that isnt on every mountain.

I'm gonna' start in about 2 weeks when my bike is done.

The joint is ok, nothing special really, except it's pretty much the only game in town when the lifts are closed & ya gotta' train somewhere.

Hit me up in a couple weeks & I'll do some runs with ya.

that sh!@T looks ghetto! especially that plywood landing...

have fun with that, keep your cell in your pocket for when you need to call 911.

that one drop doesn't look so bad, what is the run in like? looks like you need a little speed to clear all those rocks...

I don't know about you guys but I am gonna wait till Diablo opens.I like the lift service way to much ,sounds like that place needs some repair and new wood. Besides 70 degrees sounds like alot more fun than 30 degrees the grounds softer when its warmer. HAVE FUN DIRTYJRZY

You and me both just looking at cold weather makes me bitchy.
I can't stand my limbs going numb especially my fingers. I love the feeling of sweat running down my forehead with a cold bottle of gatorade to slug down to cool me off, instead of peeling my fingers off the handle bars and my sweat turning into icecubes on my eyelids.See you in the summer!

Skyline sucks, don't go there, ever. The trails are boring, and the drops are small. You won't like it, you'll get lost in the woods, you'll get three flats and have to push your 42 lb bike three miles uphill to the parking lot only to find out your car got towed and your cell phone died.

(This has been a friendly public service announcement from the partnership to keep Skyline locals only.)

I have to aggree somewhat with the "girls" in here. I have ridden everyday since winter started complete with balaclava, three layers of clothes and heavy gloves, but the other morning I found myself about 2 miles out in the woods and the wrong gloves (couldn't find my winter gloves and was late for leaving to get to work on time) Well needless to say if anyone has ever been in this postition you will know what I was going through, i was putting my hands backwards in the gloves (air holes on top side), pulling my fingers into the center of the gloves and riding with knuckes, and bitching all the way, needless to say I got to work, pulled the gloves off and my fingers were dark red, almost a purple tint and it took nearly an hour before I could feel them, and when the feeling came back and I started to be able to use them damn they hurt. I haven't hit the woods since on my morning ride into work, I'll wait till it warms up 20 degrees. But I'm looking forward to Diablo opening and shuttle runs at the local spots, and man I wanna hit some dirt jumps so bad I can taste them.
