New(er) Soquel Demo State Forest Map

MBOSC has been working with the Santa Cruz County RTC to update the commuter bike map to show mountain biking trails in the local parks and forests. The map will not be adequate to navigate the trails but our goal is to show that mountain biking trails exists in these parks. The new edition of the commuter bike map should be available later this summer.

We have been passing a lot of documents by email and I was given a nice representation of the SDSF trails and roads. I also got a copy of the March 2010 SDSF brochure from CDF and we recognized that this is the same (official?) map.

Enjoy the map and we would like to remind people that there will be trail work at SDSF this Saturday. Sign up and we would love to meet you!
